Chemtrade Employee Review

Good Workplace

I worked here as a contracted labourer because the official employers are not labours by default. I would arrive at Syncrude and the Official Employer would pick me up and drive me to the work site. We would be debriefed on our objectives for the day and then we would wear our protective equipment and would go right on site. Basically we the labourers would clean up the ammonium sulfate residue on the site and pile them up for the caterpillar to take them out to waste by the end of the day. Co-Workers would be randomly paired and I had no problem with any of them for we all did our part. Hardest part of the job was the repetition which was always about shoveling and it would be quite a strain on the back but if you were fit and had pre-workout before the work, then it wouldn't be bothersome. But in end you gotta do what you gotta do and we finished all our work on time. But the people you worked for always was the enjoyable part of the job. A simple compliment would make you work a lot better in the end of the day.


Great People and Workplace


Labourers are only stuck on clean duty therefore repetitive work and not much experience

Productive and fun place to work. When things got stressful they knew how to balance it out to bring up employee moral

I haven’t worked there for 8 years so unsure of what it is like now but when I was there it’s was great. There was a great mix of people and we all got along which made working there a lot easier

Poor Place to work with no structure and bad management

Hours were all over the place was put on a different schedule than everyone else and expected to work overtime with no notice couldn't make plans if you reject overtime they get very upset. Safety is everything there it takes so long to get anything done. Little to no room for advancement. Training is non existent. You will load trucks everyday and learn very little until someone new is hired. Management will not push for you to be trained in new tasks so don't expect to advance. They say they will but they won't. Management is extremely disorganized and will make false promises to keep you in the position. Workplace culture is very toxic. Has decent pay and is unionized for an in city job.


Decent Pay, union, safety, excellent benefits.


disorganized management, no advancement, toxic work environment
