Hydrovac Operator/Class One Drive in Edmonton, AB
Solid job not for the faint of heartIt was a great workplace, the in house training and your ability to advance in the oilfield is fantastic they take safety pretty seriously which can seem like a pain but when you get to go home with all your fingers and toes every night you will think differently.I was able to get my Class 1, learned to operate a Hydro vac, learned to lead and train other people, learned Alot about safety culture as well as many many other things the company changed my life.I thought that they paid me quite well and there always seemed to be overtime available as well.Now for the pro/con this job is not for the faint of heart, there are pretty extreme working conditions sometimes. As well there is ALOT of work, you are out of town all the time so if you like to be in the city with your wife, friends or family it can be difficult.I also really enjoyed the people I worked with there are so many stand up women and men at this company it really made coming into work a treat and its nice that the supervisors and safety guys really go to bat for you and actually care about your health and safety the team is is 5 stars.

Not just a job. This is a life long career. I started at DFI with very little experience in the construction industry. They were willing to give me a chance and I took it head on. I was quickly given the mentorship, training and tools to be successful at my job. The greatest part of DFI? Hands down, the people. There is a phenomenal core group of people from the field level, all the way up to senior management. It is common to celebrate 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 year milestones at DFI. Everyone is willing to help and take the time to properly train people coming into the company. Great work atmosphere and a very experienced team backing it up.DFI is a great company to work for if you are looking for a fast pace environment with long hours and steady work. You are given everything you need to be successful and your time at DFI is what you make of it. I have worked for a few larger companies and a few smaller companies over the years. Every company has pro's and con's, but DFI is by far the best company I have worked for.

Amazing employees, almost recession proof job securityI would say DFI is one of the best companies out there, that is as long as your someone who wants to work, learn, and are okay with over time. They are a pretty large company yet never make you feel like your just a number.They pay pretty well and if you need to take care of personal or family issues there's no questions asked.Sure sometimes there are hard jobs and long hours at times but that's part of the deal you make for the good wage and more importantly the job security. If your a decent worker and can problem solve I would say definitely give them a try.

A workplace is safePeople on charge are so rude! And you have to be a certain ethnic person to be acceptable in the circle friends, For this reason you get a laid off no matter how hard you work for them.
