The job was fun, and relaxing, and I would do it again. I had great experience working with Diversified. The benefits were great. The co-workers were easy to get along with.

Brutal work environment

Brutal work environment. You're treated extremely poorly by customers and management does nothing to rectify anything. You're constantly in unsafe situations while working at night, and receive a run around anytime you talk to anyone higher up about it. Below minimum wage with zero raises after any amount of time no matter how much you work or how hard you work. Promise of a pay increase after 3 months but it never happens. High turnaround of employees ( saw multiple people who had been there for 10 plus years quit because of the environment), in the few months I was there was multiple people who quit after being there for a week because of how little the hourly pay is for the amount of issues you have to deal with.

Pros

Cheap bus trips

Cons

Unsafe environment, rude customers, garbage pay

It's all about the customer - management / worker disconnectt

Decent money based on the industry but better opportunity if you're looking for a job in fort McMurray. You get to pay for a pushover union here - all they do is justify managements decisions. This place use to be run so much better till this latest collection came in. Now that we're proudly owned by a US company I can't see it getting better.

Pros

Maintained buses, good riders, great drivers

Cons

Management, pay, hours worked

A management first culture

A disconnect between staff and management unable to follow labour laws or employees concerns . Split shifts become tiring without much time off to rest . They do not care about staff morale and the company has a if you don't like it here leave mentality .

Pros

Paid flights

Cons

Ssplit shifts barely 8 hours off between shifts

The workplace was productive

Diversified is a great company where one finds every employee from multicultural backgrounds. Such a great company to start up. Diversified has one of the best equipment to do the job right.

Decent enough company but have a few politics

Easy Job. Just drive and dont hit anything and you should be fine. They are politics within but just do your job and go home. They will find a way to get rid of you when they are ready to.

Pros

Easy relaxed job

Cons

Politics within

I enjoy the flexibility of the job.

Management are good at explaining what to do. I like working with different people. It’s a job that is as enjoyable as you make it. If you want to advance you can. It can be hard on family life if you live far but not if you live close.

Pros

Saving money on food, gas and lodging if living in camp.

Cons

Weeks away from home. Not much to do at camp.

Ok place to work

High turn over and weird hours but good money and long term stability if u can hack the hours. It has nice buses and decent staff but some are not so nice.

Company could be run much better

10 core values only applies to drivers not management. Last 14 days working there had 8 different buses and 8 different routes. Double split shifts make it difficult to sleep. Management seems scared to make the simplest changes

Pros

Good camps

Cons

Double and triple split shifts and still only get 8 hrs pay per day.

I DO NOT have anything “positive” to say about this company!!!

Do NOT work for this company!!!They are one of the most “DISRESPECTFUL”Negative companies I have ever worked forin my life!!!!The only way this would work for “anybody”is if was only “fly in, fly out” and they paid youat least $250.00 a day

Unfortunately, its unorganized and barley qualified as a shop

Though it was a great experience honing my skills as a mechanic the lack of equipment and basic shop tools made maintenance and repairs difficult and unnecessarily problematic. Scheduling for repairs and maintenance proven to be difficult. Data entry has been outdated and troublesome.

Pros

Steady work

Cons

Poor management and technical information, outdated computers software and hardware

Great place to work if you can manage the early hours and split shifts

If you can manage waking up by 3am and reporting for work by 4:15, this is a well organized company with thorough training and safety protocols in place. Staff are friendly and help ful. Management is easy to approach and responsive

Pros

Personnel are knowledgeable friendly and helpful

Cons

Very early start times
