Poor management with a lack of integrity
Tradesman (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB19 May 2018
Convergints maintenance operations in the oilsands are poorly managed, and potentially dangerous as a result. In the first six months of my employment they fired 3 people a shift, often for little reason. They preach integrity but it's clear they do not know what it means.
Pros
14/14 shift
Cons
Safety not important enough.

Run away as fast as you can if possible
Tradesman (Former Employee) –  Alberta17 April 2018
An absolute gong show. Management is on a constant power trip and seeks to be constantly changing. Few consistent positions. If you are a big fan of drinking the koolaid and wearing blinders you may be able to survive for a year or more. If you are vocal about your views that differ from management positions, you may as well pack up your tools before the day is done. Always big ideas on improvement and asking for input, but input is ignored and ideas are pushed aside for the newest flavour of the month. Uneducated, uninformed,and biased management results in a truly hostile work place.
Pros
Had a free dinner at Christmas
Cons
Long hours, poor managers, hostile environment

Avoid for your own sake !
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 February 2018
You could work here until you get another job, otherwise avoid this company for your own sake and future. Trainings and support are non-existent. Pay is decent. Upper management and HR are completely clueless and ignorant of what is happening within each team/department (especially the security team). They hired many full-time workers just for a few big projects that they got and as a matter of fact, mass lay-off happened after things were done. Remember to act happy in front of management and HR or they consider you a burden/liability. Promotion is unlikely to happen no matter how good you are unless you are in good relationship with the management.
Pros
Bbq, some co-workers
Cons
Ignorant management, unprofessional, unethical HR team with their "laid-off strategy"

Mysterious
Electrician (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB31 August 2017
They fire people with no warning no reason and don't really care. The workers are good to work with. The work is comercial and HVAC assisting. If you're good friends with the boss go for it. Otherwise it's a gamble.
Pros
Average salary
Cons
Firing squad/ high turn over

Overall a great place to work but job security is poor

Overall a great place to work with technologies that are top notch.
Company is expanding and does well in the industry. Regardless of your performance your security is limited based on their ebita.

Job Security is poor

Apprentice Electrician 2nd Year (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB10 January 2017
Not advisable to those who are strictly looking to apprentice as an electrician.
Skills are transferable but the type of work does not require an electrical background and persons would gain more knowledge from doing residential. Unless you planned on doing strictly HVAC this company is a good starter and has possible long term opportunities.
Pros
Local work within a variety of places
Cons
at time undergoing management changes created some issues
