MILLWRIGHT (Former Employee) – Alberta – 11 February 2019
Was laid off because I filed a harassment complaint. They will do whatever it takes to satisfy the customer and couldnt care less about FD employees. Union shop steward was appointed by FD management, not elected. Shop steward backed FD management and never questioned any decisions or actions.
Principal Electrical Designer (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 January 2019
Pay is good, but job security is very difficult Not enough opporunity to learn or to grow as they dont have enough budget for training. If you are doing one thing you are expected not to do another thing very little scope of advancement. sometimes management acts funny.
They have good employee relations and management style. They have fair promotions to the best employees. good training programs which have provided opportunity for growth. providing incentives like air ticket that motivates me.

Field Engineering Manager, Vogtle Units (Former Employee) – on site – 11 December 2018
Management and supervision worked well together under structured leadership and roles clearly understood in execution. For short term (1 year) that I was employed, Fluor attempted to steer the project in toward a proper construction management model for project completion.

I loved this company. worked there in 2011 and was stupid to leave. the management were great, supportive and actually cared about their work and the Project. Benefits were good as an employee and training/education was offered. Work life balance was excellent.
Design-Lead Piping Design - Suncor - ETF (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 November 2018
Needs a complete over haul of management and people building their empires. The culure is that of compliance with not being able to think out of the box and to have excessive billing to clients because of so many levels of managment and refusing to be innovative
Quality Control Coordinator/ Welding Inspector Lv2 (Current Employee) – Norman Wells, NT – 21 September 2018
A typical day of work has me on the phone with vendors to order materials such as Gate valves and pressure piping components. New work orders are constantly flowing in which I receive and review with the site manager. Next i start a field binder that the foremen & crews can work off. This will include compiling a job specific Inspection & Test Plan after engineering, code and client specifications have been reviewed and agreed upon, drafting piping isometrics and outlining critical hold points for NDE, Testing before the next step of the job can begin. Periodically throughout my two week shift in Norman Wells NT, I will be involved in welding inspection, flange bolt up and torque reviewing and witness hydro pressure testing of fabricated piping. As this is a very old plant many jobs pose challenges that are exciting to work with. Some examples are sourcing 30 yr old valve s that do not exist with replacements from over seas countries such as Australia, the UK etc. S then having to get an approved coating vendor set up to internally coat the valves as per client specifications and ship up to site in a timely manner. Since this is a maintenance work on Canadas most northern oilfield the logistics of getting materials by Ice road, Barge or Flight to site in time to meet schedule requirements can be a bit daunting at times. Never the less we have been maintaining ESSOs plant and Oil Field since 2016 and the client is generally happy with my work and our company as a whole as everyday there is something new for us to learn on this site. There is never a dull moment at this job, imore... am constantly thinking outside the box to get each task completed in a safe and timely manner. I sometimes even run heavy equipment to help our such as a 25Ton loader snowballing the ice roads clear or being a labourer helper building scaffolds when we are in a crunch in this secluded location. I have no problem doing whatever is needed. the hardest part is being away from family for two weeks straight and the most enjoyable is working with a great bunch of guys who rely on me to direct them for what can and can't be done on their day to day work activities and constantly learning new things from all their work experience.less

Withheld (Former Employee) – withheld – 11 September 2018
I joined Fluor with customer service and basic office skills. I did not have any prior experience in the engineering industry. My leaders at Fluor helped me gain tremendous knowledge and build new skills. I would still be there if the economic situation hadn't caused wide scale layoffs due to a lack of projects.
