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!
Great place to work. Very professional management, the best contractor I've worked for in the oil sands. Everything from the travel arrangements to the site coordination was great. They take care of their employees.
Wages, working conditions and management
The job was great and the co-workers were great, but the current owners are not. They care more about saving the company money than taking care of their employees. They provide the minimum amount of PTO, if that, they pay minimum wage to most of their employees, they do not offer a 401K, and they only offer to pay for half of your medical premium. They don't follow the employment laws, and if you try to talk to them about it, they get mad and act like they know everything. They are in the process of selling the company, but the sale has been in process for over a year now, and could be in process for another year or more.
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.
Great group of people to work with and for
