Good Salary, Benefits and Training But Management Not Very Responsive to Employees

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
EPCOR is a decent place to work with good salaries, benefits and training opportunities. The work was interesting and rewarding. Lots of rigid policies and procedures, frequent reporting. They have a very hierarchical management structure and do not solicit much employee input. They just implement things from the top down. Safety is important, but so many policies are being driven by over the top excessive "safety" requirements.


Good salary and benefits


Rigid policies with little employee input

not a bad company to work for if you are interested in water treatment

I worked at the plant, and it involved repetitive laboratory tests. Since it is a water treatment plant for the city, there is not much dynamics. Regular routine work is done most of the time. Everyone is generally very friendly and willing to help.


high pay


repetitive work

Great Company with great benefits but difficult to grow within the company

Love working at EPCOR as they have great benefits, however, it is difficult to advance and grow within the company which can sometimes be frustrating.

Fune place to work but depending on who you report to

I had a good time working here but my nightmare started when my Manager PMO felt threatened by how good I knew my job. There is no room for growth here.


good pay and benefit


long hours, no room for growth

Share your experience to help others

Would definitely recommend

My typical day at work starts with morning stretches, start of day maintenance tasks, projects, mid-day maintenance tasks. Sometimes, there are meetings and trainings within the week. Management is flexible and considerate of personal life. Workplace culture is collaborative, safety-focused and an emphasis on employee health (in all aspects)


High-salary compared to competition due to union, flex-based benefits allows customization based on personal needs, wellness account, personal development account (formal courses paid by EPCOR), donation to charity of choice if volunteering more than 30 hours, morning stretches, free parking, delicious coffee and tea choices, gym and shower on site, work-life balance

Absolutely brutal management

This company has terrible management. The ethics guidelines are not adhered to, lying is acceptable behaviour, and compensation and advancement is based on favouritism, not competency. This is the worse company I ever worked for.


None come to mind


Overpaid management with poor ethics, The corporate executives are oblivious about what is going on downstairs, It is a very unhappy and threatening atmosphere.

Nice place to work. Good pay.

Great benefits, good people to work with. However the union structure protects lazy coworkers in many departments. Management couldn't manage their way out of a cardboard box constantly changing crew structures in an attempt to streamline what, I do not know. The best equipment and tools and great home work life balance. I'd go back and work there if I could.


Equipment, fair pay, union, worklife balance.


Poor performance by many, union, seniority system, they do not fight to keep good people.

great management but less full time opportunity

i'm only working part-time (20-29hours/week) and they currently don't have many opportunity for full time. I really love the job and management and my colleagues..i just wish they'd offer more full time opportunity.

Mgrs & foreman -just not right fit!

I was there 2000 & the foreman were useless! I was in sales would send emails & they wouldn't reply. Even some mgrs. were over there head in their job position-didn't deserve the title was just given it. Apparently some foreman & mgrs today In 2019 are still useless! The union culture for some is a poison & some love that type of culture. Really good benefits, once your in your in even if not a good worker.

Treated me well

EPCOR provided everything that I could want or need. If you work diligently, independently, are safety focused, provide an honest effort, and progress with the company they do pay well, provide awesome benefits, and educational opportunities.


Wellness Benefits, flexible for time off

I would recommend not to apply for a job there

Management is terrible but the employees are great. They will pick the lazy workers over the workers who show up and do their jobs. If you are a person who sucks up you will have job. It doesn't go by how good of worker you are and show up on time. It's like daytime soap opera there all the time also. Benefits and pay is good.


good pay good benefits


Management is terrible

For those who look for balance of Life and Work

Good place to work and Live life, Provides good balance of Life and Work. Salary is not high, Most Analyst positions are part of csu52 union and hence salary grades.

Work Life Balance

Very demanding/lean organization. Work life balance is difficult to achieve in a management position. In many cases, in-scope employees are paid higher than out of scope employees.


Great Benefits


Long hours, stressful, demanding workload

If you are a permanent worker, this job is great, good benefits, financial stability. working as a temp is good if you are young, downfall is no benefits or vacation time, pay is very good.
Was this review helpful?

The job was mostly being automated

There was typical politics. Very little support from the foreman. As a temp there is no benefits. Becoming permanent can take years so you could end up with zero benefits and pay increases for a very long time.
