Process Specialist (Former Employee) – Chalk River, ON – 8 August 2018
During my 10 years at CNL, I had the opportunity to experience varying job positions, interfacing with many aspects of the company. This company is very dynamic and energetic and has many exciting times ahead.
Engineering Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Chalk River, ON – 2 April 2018
I worked at the NRU, a nuclear research reactor, at the Chalk River Laboratories. Before it was permanently shutdown in March 2018, it was my privilege to be part of the team that kept the reactor running that helped millions of people with cancer diagnosis and treatment. It was a unique environment to work in, with a mix of old and new technologies, and sometimes developing the technologies to meet the needs of the reactor.
Procurement Officer (Current Employee) – Deep River, ON – 15 December 2017
I have been working there for more than a year. I am looking forward to leave and find a new job. The working conditions are poor. A lot of silo and lack of team work. Some managers like more employee than others and so there is a lot of differential treatment and favoritism . If you are not happy there , it is difficult to look for job since the area is isolated and difficult to commute to major cities . I do not recommend this place!
Corporate Adminstrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chalk River, ON – 22 November 2017
Long waits in traffic to arrive in mornings, lots of parking but far walk to offices. Necessary security processes make it difficult for break time to get to food accessibility. Remote location require travel to work with no transit options for the local area. Overall great place to work if you are willing to do the drive and walks, benefits are incredible as well as the salaries. Atmosphere is good but some uncertainty for the future of the company however promises for a growing organization.
HR Associate (Former Employee) – Chalk River, Ontario – 6 November 2017
CNL is a great place to work but definitely needs to work on management. The people there love to work but management is holding them back. Morale would be better if upper management focused more on their employees than their annual bonuses.
Project Manager’s Assistant/Summer Student (Former Employee) – Chalk River, ON – 20 September 2017
I greatly enjoyed my time at CNL and felt included and nurtured during my 4 month internship. I was encouraged to ask questions and was mentored by several individuals during my time there. There are so many departments, there is always a new challenge to undertake once hired.
Contract officer (Current Employee) – Deep River, ON – 7 September 2017
The company is going through tremendous changes , however, the old guard is still controlling and the mentality did not change. The people from the area believe it is their company and they hire from within. Do not not be surprised to see a secretary becoming a manager after 10 year of work. They train their staff so much they lack skills. Interesting , an employee who follow few hours of training will claim he or she is an expert in the field. Avoid because, the place is full of harassment and bullying
a lot of unqualified people are have managerial position
Procurement Assistant (Current Employee) – Chalk River, ON – 16 July 2017
Poor management, supply chain manager micro manage employee. Manager has no nuclear experience and cannot advice in nuclear related issue in procurement. All other people are helpful. Opportunity available to learn. Non union employee has difficulty to get into unionized position.
