Customer Service Representative (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 September 2018
I have learned a lot of new things with the husky. I was able to improve my communication skills. The most fun part is that you meet a lot of new customers daily. The management is very good and helping. Overall experience is very good.
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 20 August 2018
Typical day at work would be described as fun, management was a ball to work with they were like one of us they got down and dirty too! The days went by so fast an 8 hour shift was like a 4 always busy always different
Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 August 2018
Loved working here, made some great friends that I am still friends with today. There was a bit of a clique-type culture which was difficult to navigate at times. Loved working with my manager/supervisor and the more senior ladies and one gent in my group.
Very cooperative and helpful office and field staff
Drilling Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 July 2018
I enjoyed working at Husky Energy. Most of my time at Husky was as a single consultancy working 24/7 on a 3/1 rotational basis. When it was required that two consultants were required on the well site my alternate was knowledgeable and courteous.
Management and culture is designed for engineering advancement.
Measurement Specialist (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 18 July 2018
Company has a history of hiring experienced highly skilled personnel but once these people are hired they will not trust there experience and knowledge but instead need to validate these people with outside opinions. Calgary has many engineers that do not know subject matter and will not listen to SME. They like to go there own way and have a history of do things until caught methodology.
Consultant, Construction Site Representative (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 5 July 2018
Husky is a stable company with great assets. The management team was lacking in vision and technical ability. This is evident in some of the decisions made and the work culture. I was based in Lloydminster for over a year and never did any outside training or even went to Calgary for any meetings.
Although I was only with the company for a short time,I enjoyed the overall great work culture Husky's employees bring to the workplace. Its an organization that allows advancement with higher career opportunities to move up quick if you are so inclined. The mentors and steam leads are helpful in aiding in achievement of personal, short and long-term goals. Overall I think it's an exceptional organization to be associated with.
Lead (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 14 June 2018
The organization is currently improving on documentation and standardization of processes. Everyone therefore is expected to work above and beyond their normal designation. This reduces personal time and increases the workload of most employees. The work is generally stable with with less chances of layoffs. Lots of new projects should keep people busy for the next couple of years. Expect to talk freely about your family and how you spend your weekends and holidays! Pay may not be as attractive as peers.
Relaxed work environment, Challenging work load (could be a negative as well!), Relatively stable job, Multiple new projects ongoing and in view.
Less pay than peers, less allowances especially for maintenance professionals, heavy work load
Accountant (Former Employee) – Accountant – 13 June 2018
Husky is a good company. Last Supervisor had bias on her own team member. She lets her work colleagues "friends" to give lots of favorites. For example, office policy is to work 8 hour + 1 hour lunch. She lets her friends to work at 9 am to 2 pm and playing internet in office hour. Definitely, she is not professional enough. Other than above, I had a good work experience in Husky.
Temporary Executive Receptionist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 May 2018
Austere executive office, but everyone was quite positive and encouraging. I was only there as a temp, but found everyone very welcoming. As the position was strictly executive reception, it was often very quiet, without a lot of duties to perform. Each executive had his or her own executive secretary, so reception duties were very limited. However, I did find my offers to assist the executive secretaries were most welcome, so they did find useful busy work for me to do.
Not enough work to do in an eight-hour day to keep busy.
