Hope you like overtime
You're expected to work a huge amount of overtime, often with little to no notice. The people you work with are good. Management is horrible and the work days are extremely long.

Worst place ever to work
A bunch of cliqued up back stabbers, a superintendent who won't return calls, and foreman who is absolute garbage.
Very poor morale, the only good thing about working there is the end of the shift.....AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!

Edmonton Maintenance Has Gone Down Hill
Edmonton Henday Division use to be the best section of the Henday.. It has fallen off the map. It seems like there must have been a change in management or workers the past couple of years and now it is like nobody is held accountable or cares anymore. Work used to get done routinely, safely, and on time. Now if you just want a paycheque to show up and do nothing. If you care about your work and want to do an honest job its not the place. If you want to come in and take 2 hour coffees and have nobody say anything sign up. The culture is a general sense of nobody cares.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Nightshift, feeling that nobody cares

Hard work for decent pay
I started out optimistic of both the job and the crew I worked with but that didn't last long in the face of the absolutely grueling work schedule and utter exhaustion.
Cons
Long hours

Long hours and steady work for good pay.
7 nights on and 7 days off. The schedule is nice and the wage is worth it for the work required. Good group of coworkers and management. The job requires a lot of driving.

very good pay for short contracts
the company is based on health and safety since it deals with oil sands but the job period could end in an-predicted time the stability is a problem the job could be tuff but you get what you work for

Productive fun workplace
The management teams were always good with letting us know when and where site was and how long we were expected to be there. They always had water/food for the employees on site

Great learning opportunity
Great guys to work with, I had never built a bridge before and ended up getting a really good friend of mine to teach me. I have a goal to do most if not all forms of carpentry and they made that happen in a small part.
Pros
They stand by their word
Cons
Had to work in Saskatchewan

Decent work environment
Just need to be respected and they will normally do the same, but they have zero patience when it comes to someone questioning their integrity as a company

I enjoyed working there
For me it was all about the people, I enjoyed working with the people there. Some days where more busy then others but I don't have anything negative to say. It was always a pleasure to work with these guys, and the days would just burn away because your always busy. I miss these guys, wish I could go back.

overall a good company to work for, although they do tend to slave drive meaning they do not give you appropriate time off when wanted, The main superintendent wants everyone to work 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

was a good place but due to down sizing people have started to back stab so they dont get fired but others do
used to be good, people in general where good, good pay and benefits, 7 day on 7 days off 12 hour days schedule switching from days to nights. due to the economy some people have started to back stab others to keep there job and have others fired due to company downsizing
Pros
decent pay and benefits, outdoors, some times super easy
Cons
some of the people, some days super hard work, stressful on the road
