This company is great to work for. As big as they are, they treat you very well. Working out of town I had a family emergency and they had me on an Air Canada flight within 2 hours.

Upper management completely out of touch with industry. Same story as anywhere else, head office makes unilateral changes to justify their bloated salaries, regardless of impact on front line workers, they focus only on numbers and not on customer service or taking care of employees. Most management are hired because of corporate compatibility rather than industry experience. There is no formal training. Vehicles and equipment are rarely serviced, maintenance is up to the workers. Prepare to be frustrated beyond belief most days. Some staff members are really great, some of who smile at their co-workers and trash talk them behind their back. This should be a last resort.

Pros


Home daily


Cons


Sporadic overtime, no communication, old equipment, lack of proper tools, no training, too many snakes in the pit!

Chemco is a great place to work. They have employee incentives that give you a point a week to be cashed in for merchandise. Management is typically well trained.

they supplied a culture like anywhere, with values and safety aspects. Only issue I had here was that it was a bit much for me waiting for another job, even though I was told I would most likely be hired again. Met some great people!

Chemco is a great company to work for. As long as you show up every day that your scheduled, and do your job you will do fine. Foreman’s, GFs and superintendents were great to work with and for. I spent 5 plus years working for this company.
Pros
Great group of people to work with and for
Cons
Safety is getting a little crazy

Great People, Amazing managers, approachable in every way, Job security is low, but so is any job in the trades we all know that, and it should not be held against the company at all.

pay is great but it is a family owned business and mainly family members are in management, although for long term employees they do have the option to buy in.

My time at this company was with the high voltage crew and I found it was a positive experience. I would love to work for this company in the future as they treat their people well, they make safety a top priority, and have good management.
Pros
fare treatment and good wages
Cons
most of their work depends on fluctuating oil and gas economy
