very good people on site
Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB24 October 2018
all sites that I've been to with ceda the people have been amazing, the management in the office needs to be more prepaid for all the work that gets done, and the people they got to keep track of
Pros
good people to work with, paid flights from NL with camp
Cons
low hourly wage

Toxic culture
Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB3 October 2018
this is one review that deserves the option of negative star rating. The mismanagement of this company starts at the top with corrupt leadership. The management team lie to the owners and shareholders, they lie to the customers to win the work and finally the workers suffer as a consequence of these poor actions. Safety incidents are covered up. its your fault when the project fails. you won’t be paid on time and if you complain your fired.
Pros
leaving
Cons
toxic

Brilliant summer job!
Field Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB7 September 2018
CEDA's management team is very well structured with ethically minded caring individuals who strive for excellence. This is a job I was sad to leave due to the perfectly crafted sense of comradery and great pay! These jobs pay generously and have in built over time which for an international student provides an opportunity to save and better their financial standing in a relatively small space of time. CEDA provides off/on-site training which I am truly grateful for! They invest in you before you have given them first hand reason to. This is a company that I am proud to have worked for.
Pros
Great pay, Good people, Supplied training
Cons
long hours

Old boys club
Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB7 June 2018
Ceda is definitely a old boys club. If you’re not friends with foremans or management you will not advance. Ceda management at Syncrude treats their employees,especially shutdown workers really bad. They don’t care about you, you’re only a number who can be replaced. Do not get sick and miss work or they will hold it against you. The trucks they use is so worn out and unsafe,they shouldn’t be allowed to use them. I recommend to stay away from this company.
Pros
Flights and accommodations paid for
Cons
Management. Away from home months at a time.

Fun atmosphere to work in and all the people were great to work with
GENERAL FOREMAN /SUPERINTENDENT (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB1 June 2018
The overall support from the Calgary office could improve in terms of support where resources are required. Jobs are successful starting at the top and working down to the bottom. They could definitely provide more support for the construction end where I was working. Maybe it is different on other job sites.
Pros
Good pay for where the job was stationed
Cons
Working away from home for long periods of time

Lost when it comes to management
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Conklin, AB25 May 2018
When you fire someone without cause and tell them that they just don't, 'fit in" - that's not a company who cares about their employees... oh wait - I was a laborer ... not a driver. So of course I am replaceable and treated like dirt. The only way you might want to stay with this organisation is if you have a class one license , then they would treat you much better!

So if you are a laborer .... AVOID.

If you are a truck driver, they will treat you a bit better because they need you.
Pros
work away from home
Cons
mismanagement - shortage of pickups to use

It was a experience
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.

Most unprofessional company in Fort McMurray
Operator 2 (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray10 February 2018
Between the lie, poor equipment underpaid worker, lack of common sense and complete regard for safety its hard to find anything positive to say about ceda.

They lack professionalism, will take any contract without the proper equipment, know how or man power to do the job.

All the equipment is in poor condition some even dangerous to use, any complain or remarks will get you dismissed.

Most of the time they don't have PPE at hand and will put the blame on the workers.

Call other business unit on-site, ask about their experience with ceda before signing any contract with them.
Pros
Hard to find any
Cons
List is extremely long
