Terrible company
Systems Analyst/Programmer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton12 September 2018
Worst management I’ve ever experienced. Human Resources will crucify union people for speaking up. I can’t say enough about this nasty place to properly communicate how poorly run certain areas of this company are handled.
Pros
They provide water and rkectricity
Cons

The crew I am working with is hard work and dedicated to quality work and to bond together as a team. Training is available to all field workers at no cost to the worker.

Great benefits and salary, however management is a drawback
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB7 January 2018
Overall the workplace is great and you learn a lot starting out. However, depending on which area you work, management may not be the best for your personal and career development.

Its a great company with good work culture. Most of the positions are union positions and graded annually. I am learning lots of application integrations with Oracle and SQL server.

Clock watching Negative Company
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 August 2017
This company focuses only on negative aspects. Never any positive recognition or feedback. If you want a place where you feel like your back in high school, then this is it. Bullying happening all around you. No matter how hard you work you can't get past the favourites in the company regardless if you have more seniority or work your butt off Would not recommend this company if my life depended upon it.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Very negative Atmosphere

Great stable company that provides great benefits, opportunities for growth and advancement, and pays great
Wastewater treatment operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 March 2016
Best job I ever had. The people are great, the company is great, lots of perks to the job, and your always learning. The company supports personal growth and development and provides all the resources needed to obtain the needed tickets and training for the job, as well as gives every employee an allowance for after hours education. As an operator, I would recommend this company, and say that an operator position here is the cat's a** it's the real macoy. I could go on for a lot longer about the work, the management, the company's growth projects and plans, the opportunities for growth, the opportunities for advancement, the competitive pay scale, but I'll leave that to you to find out for yourself when you have an interview.
Pros
Everything
Cons
They aren't in eastern Canada- yet. But they will be
