Unreal expectations
Area Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK3 March 2018
Upper management has unrealistic expectations and do not have a clear understanding of the core business. They have very high expectations of you going the extra mile and putting in extra hours and effort with little to no compensation. Upper management does not support mid level supervsiors which creates a very low moral working environment. I would not recommend this as being a employer of choice. If it wasn’t for a handful of long term employes the place would be in even bigger trouble than it already is.
Pros
Not many.
Cons
Long hours poor shift roatation. No support.

Poor place to invest your time in a planning a career. Little to no guidance by upper management with a high expectation for performance. Managers with high level of years in and experience in the field are tossed aside without proper cause on a regular basis.

Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB6 February 2018
Management is full of stupid people .Employees are hired , promoted on links basis . If you know management and you are good . You would be insulted , punished . If you want to ruin your career and put a black spot on your resume from management who knows nothing about systems and how they work . sure get there

Boring dead end job with no room for advancement, very poorly managed
Insp (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK6 February 2018
Evraz is a very dirty, loud, poor working environment with awful air quality and even worse management. They preach safety when in fact they care about as much about safety as they do their employees. With the current contract new hires start around $25/hr, a wage you can quite easily find elsewhere with a lot healthier working environment and not working 12 hour shifts/nights/weekends. There is really no room for advament , little incentive to work hard and next to nothing for raises, the moral there is the worst I have seen at any employer in my 15 years in the oil/gas industry. Save yourself the headache and look for a job with growth potential and room for advancement, a career!
Pros
Pay you just enough to stick around
Cons
Awful shifts, poor air quality, uneducated management with no interpersonal skills, AWFUL moral

Decent place to work to make good cash.
Area Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Regina, SK13 January 2017
Not a bad place to work. Shift schedule is challenging and extremely difficult to advance or move to a position that doesn't require shift work. The wage and benefits are hard to find anywhere else, which gets you sucked in.
Pros
Good Money
Cons
Very volatile market

Lead Hand (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 January 2016
Evraz is a fast paced environment. When the bell rang everybody goes to their respected station and start working their assigned job. Being a lead hand the hardest part of the job for me is when machine breaks and the production stop.

achieving good results, coworkers are great, good attitude we're helping each other. Safety is our number one priority.
Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 October 2015
Safety is priority, always good attitude, self respect and self esteem. Recognizing the hazards of the environment, hard working people around me from the management to the floor. The hardest part is to stay awake and alert during night shift, the most enjoyable part of the job is when running smooth, no downtime, time flies so quickly.
Pros
free PPE supllies (work steeltoe boots, work gloves, coverall, safety glasses etc.
Cons
shift work, 12 hrs.

it is general place to work
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 May 2015
typical day is troubleshooting and quick repair of production line (reducing the downtime as much as possible).
I have learned very much from jobs,like troubleshooting skills,interpersonal skills,mind-opening skill,maintenance organizing skill.
Management is how to make a team working together time,cost efficiently, productively,safely.make everybody willing to dedicate their best to company and wants to stay.not to make a hero or make everybody upset.
co-worker is around everybody,we can not avoid.you can make good relationship with some people.Learning how to get along with people is an interpersonal skill.That is part of our job.Good interpersonal skill will help us a lot,make our working and life easy.
The hardest job is some urgent irregular critical job which we have to get it done as soon as possible or some complicated(confusing) job which we have no clue.
The most enjoyable part of job is we solve a tough problem which come up again and again indefinitely.
Pros
lunch pay
Cons
rotation schedule
