Low on the totem pole (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB27 April 2018
Not all departments were like this but when it was it was horrible. Would never recommend to work here unless you are in the oil field. Work life balance was non existent

Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Bonnyville, AB26 March 2018
Unfortunately this company is not going to receive any high praise as being a outstanding company to work for. With many years of work for them they care more about the $ amount that a employee will work for then the actual skills that they can bring forward. Management was horrible with no understanding how to execute their job. One of the lowest paying outfits around right now does not make this a company anyone really wants to work with or for given the workmanship they attract.

Ok place to work for newbies
Operator 1 (Current Employee) –  Conklin, AB9 June 2017
Ceda had good benefits some guys that know stuff but most of the management well lets just say no clue.
Some people that should be supervisors are operators and people that are supervisors have no back bone and don't stand up to management when things are needed like mecanics, parts, extra staff, and extra equipment because a contract they got awarded obviously they thought was a joke or took very lightly and don't plan or think ahead.
Pros
Decent pay, benefits, schedule
Cons
Management, supervisors

Ceda allowed me to see safety from an amazing perspective, the culture was great, and the experience was unforgettable. I learned so much and got to travel not only to different sites around town but also out of town.

Committed my life but recieved no appreciation
Vacuum Truck/HPW Operator (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON18 December 2016
There were no typical days at work unorganized leadership , there was no team pretty much every man for himself ,A few guys could work well together .Higher up President is a class act and is the one bright spot about the Leadership within CEDA.

It was hard manual labor intensive at times on the lance doing High Pressure Water Blasting. Operating different trucks was nice allowed for more opportunities for work. Travel at times was nice but being close to home was better. Working with Chemicals in Chemical plants was the only bad part about it, Corrosives, H2S, Benzene , Caustic,Asbestos in older plants. I personally would rather steer a younger generation from this type of work ,Climbing up and down towers & in and out of tanks cleaning sludges & oils is no fun.
Pros
if lucky enough higher up on call out list, close to home
Cons
Travel, Lack of team work, 24-7 on call most days, slow up during winter months.

Poor management
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB9 November 2016
Ceda offers decent pay and benefit packages , but they do not make up for the lack of job security, the fact Ceda has no loyalty to its employees( you are just a number) and it's inferior leaders.
Ceda is lead by the most incompetent management team I have ever experienced , there is constant petty bickering between managers at all levels ,they are self serving and one-upping each other seems to take president over running the company.
Ceda had difficulty turning a profit when times were good, now with the economic down turn I feel they are doomed - avoid this company unless you simply need to use it as a stepping stone to a career in a company with a better future .
Pros
Pay, Benefits and work/life balance
Cons

safe place to work but no faith in long term workers
Contract Administrator / Project Clerk (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 October 2016
Typical day at work included safety talks, which is a strength of the company.
After moving around within the company at various jobs due to constant changes from management, my position was terminated.
Hardest part of the job was realizing that no matter how loyal you may be you are just a number.
The field experience was the best part of the job.
Pros
Safety program
Cons
Loyalty counts for nothing
