Demanding position but staff and clients were excellent to work with. Exposed to many different types of projects and technologies. Hardest part of job could be waiting for decisions to be made by upper management.
Lock/out-Tag/out Coordinator (Former Employee) - Fort Hills, AB - 15 May 2020
Good job but lockout procedures we're not really taken seriously by NS FCCL supervision. I'm not sure they understood why you can't use 1/8' plate as an alternative to a 1"thick blind flange on firewater instead locking out on a satellite box. FCL was great and good management.
Loved working for them but was let go due to a virus the swept the nation. hoping to return one day.Was treated very well. always taken care of. Its unfortunately that these things happens but when it does you do what is best and i they did just that,. So hopefully once the threat is no more. they can rehire me.
Fluor was an amazing company to work for. Everyone was very helpful and collaborative during my time there. I was able to do many different things while I was there which helped my growth as an employee.
Fluor is one of the world's largest publicly-traded engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and maintenance companies. Fluor works with Clients in diverse industries around the world to design, construct and maintain their capital projects.
Given the nature of the industry, there was absolutely no sense of job security and every few months people were being laid off which made for a stressful environment. The on boarding was non existent in the field offices for virtually every position, from entry level to management level which was surprising. There is an expectation of "forced fun", attending work related corporate functions on your own time which is rather irritating unless you enjoy giving up a day on your weekend to essentially be at work. There was also the surprise that you are expected to use your own personal credit card for travel or work related expenses and then wait for reimbursement from the company which was frequently late and no interest paid for creating late fee charges on your card.
I have always been treated and compensated fairly as an employee and contractor. All my assignments were out of town and when the assignments were completed if they had nothing for me to move on to they had no problem with me moving on to other companies and returning to them when that assignment was complete.
Working for this company is a great challenge. Fast paced work,based on reactive work plans. Poor communication. Limited resources to complete tasks.
High turnover in both supervisors as well as manpower.
Working in camp,Money was great hours of work good,good food THere is lot of politics in the upper management . I would recommend working there if you want get ahead,It can be stressful on your family life , but that is the sacrifice you have to make.,
Good money to be made, Excellent safety program.Paid travel accommodation .Food is good
Worked for them doing refinery construction and always made good cash, lots of hours, management is Freemason heavy so decent guys. You put in a good days work for a days pay and no issue. Any sense of trouble making and you’ll be let go instantly. Zero tolerance for drama queens, rats and bad attitudes.
Good experience working there and had a few different roles and learned a lot there through their internal courses and opportunities. Being in the energy sector, they are dependant on the market and therefore the career can be limiting. Good company to work for and I would certainly go back if the opportunity arose.
