Great learning opportunities for EITs

I had a great experience at NSP. I could always ask questions and the work assigned challenged me so I could grow in my career. Once you're in a full-time position and performing well there's job security.

Discriminatory hiring practices

Don't expect to get hired based on your suitability for the position. Ahead of you will be people of a more preferred age, gender, or with personal connections in the company.

Bad work culture

Tenured employees are leaving and hiring for new call centre reps is a revolving door. Customers can’t get good service because scheduling can’t get crews to show up for jobs. If you’re building, don’t bother calling the call centre, they can’t get you a date. Really top heavy, a lot of management should be busier.... Front line extremely busy. 42 year old Co worker just took heart attack. Performance management is ambiguous so targets are more “feeling” about someone than actual met targets. Working all of the time during bad weather. You can not refuse. Cannot be single parent working there. 5 sick days per year, no family or personal days and that’s all. If you get 6 sick days in a year, you are made to feel like you could be fired. Very third party call centre feeling there. Went really downhill in the last year. Not well managed. Not a good place to work.

Challenging

Emera is a great place to work. There are work/life balance challenges, however, in the accounting dept. Internal postings are a nice benefit as you get to see opportunities arising regularly.

Great advantages for work and personal growth

Great company to work for but due to business situations changes had to be made and divisions were sold and closed. Great for career development and making sure you can advance and learn other aspects for the business, when available.

The most enjoyable part of the job

What I enjoy most about my job is that I get to work outside and enjoy the beautiful four seasons of Nova Scotia. There is an incredible satisfaction of taking in whatever nature has to give you that day.

Independence and support provided in near-perfect balance

Great office culture. Safety is top priority of management and staff alike. Help, support and independence to complete work well balanced. Knowledgeable plant personnel willing to share expertise and understanding of processes.

Pros

Great office co-workers, people and plant success celebrated

Cons

Tight monthly deadlines and longer days at month end

Friendly productive workplace

My usual day at work went by checking my emails, printing invoices, and putting the invoices into the software. I learned about the Jonas software for accounts payable and purchase orders. I learned how to manage heavy loads of work with my time management skills. All of the employees were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The end of every month was very difficult. There was a great pressure to meet the deadline. I enjoyed the environmental safety meetings. They had quizzes and it was overall very fun.

Pros

Friendly staff, clean and tidy workplace

Cons

Small parking lot

Pros

oppertunities

dependant on extenal work to survive, unlike the regulated NS Power
