Tradesman (Former Employee) –  Grande Cache, AB6 December 2019
Sorry prospective applicants, but this is not the place to be. Management by the same people who have run the facility into the ground several times now. Cannot trust the people you work for (generally the coworkers are good). I know I passed my drug test straight up but I have no idea how some of the foremen and supervisors did.

Upper management has little experience. This is a company owned by foreign investors looking to make a quick buck and it certainly shows.

Staff leaving every week it seems.

Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Grande Cache, AB24 November 2019
Wouldn't recommend working here. Unless you are very desperate and like being treated poorly by a management team that is all working against you and looking out for themselves. Also very unsafe. Seen quite a few injuries (3 required hospital visits) in a short time.

Far worse places to work
Employee (Current Employee) –  Grande Cache27 October 2019
CST treats people fairly who want to come to work and do thier job.

The wages are a bit lower it than the industry standard, however with coal prices dropping, you will still be working where others are not.

Still a "new company", and some younger supervisors with some things to learn. Overall good company to work for.

Great place to grow your career!
HEO 2 (Current Employee) –  Grande Cache15 October 2019
The company has been in operation for 1 1/2 years and it's nice to see how many people have come back to work here (preciously Grande Cache Coal)! Surface mine and Plant are in operation, Underground has not started yet....hopefully it starts soon!
Wages are good. Get vacation and benefits right after starting...not too many places to work offer that.
Work schedules are great for work/life balance.
The community of Grande Cache is busier than ever, nice to see considering I'm a local.

Poor company to work for
HEO3-830E Haul Truck Operator (Former Employee) –  Grande Cache, AB4 September 2019
HR and management don’t communicate with employees well! Frequent employee turnover and HR quick to let good employees go without getting all the facts!
Seen way better HR and management at bigger and smaller companies than here!
Supervisors don’t communicate well with employees, if In trouble you get blindsided. You are encouraged to file harassment or violence in the workplace but those who have have gotten verbal warnings and/or written up for doing so after.
Base wage for haul trucks & equipment operators way less than other companies
If I could give a negative star rating would be a negative 5 star!
Not a good place to work at...small town politics in play there
Employee moral very low...
Pros
Beautiful view
Cons
HR and management skills extremely poor
