Was a great company to work for.
AVIAN MONITOR (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 6 November 2014
Typical day at work, started at 5am, one hour commute each way, provided by the company. I was given a lot of trust & responsibility with my position. My manager was not onsite, but a phone call away. I worked on a small team, the position was seasonal, as were most of the projects within the company, yet future projects were always lined up and just around the corner. The hardest part was long shifts, early mornings, yet rotational work where you work six days on and have four off is perfect. The most enjoyable part was working outdoors as well as indoors, provided a perfect balance, and getting to go all over site, switching projects keeps things fresh, nothing gets to stagnant.
sometimes the hours are too demanding, I did 21 days on in a row last winter, resulting in me feeling completely burnt out.
