Canadian North - Just like Family
Typical day at work is 12 hour shifts, that are never the same. I have learned to be a leader who listens, and an employee that can manage challenging day to day operations with professionalism and positive outcomes.
Management within the company listens to their employees, however could excel more from their employees multiple years of experience which not only validates the employee, it also allows for opportunity for growth and understanding.
The culture within Canadian North is a strong family bond however I believe that there is a division within some of the departments which is primarily portrayed as lack of accountability.
The hardest part of the job is seeing some personnel take advantage of their positions, with no recourse. Many employees are not required to put forth the same hours, effort or professionalism that others are required to uphold.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge that you gain, the people that you meet (who become your second family) and being able to separate what you are responsible for and what others are responsible for. I have learned to listen closely.
Benefits, job security
Lack of internal advancement for those who deserve it, accountability
