Contract workers are not recognized for the work they do. Even though the company speaks on diversity - they should also include Contract Workers as part of "Diversity" as they are not treated equally.

Good place to work, nice camp and the travel accommodations were good. The company built a world class SAGD operation and treats the employees good. The pay is competitive.

Husky has a great collaborative work culture, where professional growth and taking initiatives are encouraged and appreciated. The compensation package is competitive and benefits are great. Exploring various roles even outside of your expertise is encouraged which allows you to expand your professional experience. Great leadership, training and very positive environment overall.

I would start with going through my inbox. Dealing with the ones that are time sensitive or people wanted information. That is very important that you give the customer the best experience as you are the first line
I then would work on any requisition, and any re tech training that needs to be addressed. Process any purchase orders, arranging hot shots if need be. Being on top of logistics, is very important


I worked on various tasks such as, Learning Matrix. having to decide what positions require certain minimum safety requirements. I also planned the biggest turnaround we had ..arranged the venue, booklets, lunch for the workers


I also created a monthly newsletter with what is in the Husky news and what we have coming up. I actually created a daily update during the turn a round; I would update the work that is being done. I created a Contractor Spotlight and would put them in the newsletter as a thank you for their hard work.

Originally a wonderful experience, then management changed & got really top heavy with agendas, politics, and introduction of friend hiring. Favortism, old boys, cost of living for management only, unqualified supervision/management for positions but didn't matter - they got the job anyway. Stressful days unless you joined the "group". Workplace "culture" was all talk for show while management behaved badly with impunity. Workload was completely unrealistic but request for assistance fell on deaf ears. I would not recommend Husky Energy as an employer unless you are friends with management - then it's a cake walk.

The best part about working at husky was my regular customers, They are loyal clientele whom of which appreciated and often acknowledged our hard work, complimented how clean our station was, and loved that we would remember faces and preemptively would get their usual purchases ready for them when we saw them pull up
I will miss my customers and my coworkers, but the management made it it all not worth the trouble in the end.

I was proud to be contracted by such a prominent oilfield company. They have an impeccable safety culture which is something I strive for.
A typical day at work consisted of meeting with crews, safety meeting, JSA's and going over policies ans procedures. Then following programs to safely complete jobs in a timely fashion.

Management was great to work with and fair at all times.

There was always a strong line of communication with Management and Engineers to safely complete jobs in a timely and cost efficient manner.

The management style at Husky starts at the top with the board of directors who are remote entities operating out of Hong Kong. They are strictly focused on the bottom line, stock prices and cash flow. The local corporate managers, CEO's, directors are entirely beholden to their masters and although they pay lip service to concepts of fairness, diversity and inclusion, aboriginal affairs and environment, their hands are tied in order to meet the requirements of their overlords. 'Hands tied' in the sense of the few at the top being paid enormous sums in order to maintain the status quo. Overall, not a very humanistic or positive work environment.

The typical day starts with a daily huddle to see who did what yesterday and if you did not accomplish what you said that you would you better have a good reason.

Husky Pump is best place where I worked as its not too much stressful. I had learned how to deal with customers and make them smile by my good efforts towards them. Management is awesome and helpful. There was no such hard time for me it was always the best time for me.

Very productive and relaxed atmosphere with room for growth both personal and professional.Courses were offered at regular intervals both in house and contract. Professional designation was required for most positions and there was always a lot of learning to be done in a very dynamic atmosphere with ever changing industry and government regularions, deadlines etc.

The Commissioning group can be very demanding for time and schedule, but the pay rate made it worthwhile.
When i started with this group the management were a lot more team orientated, but as the group expanded it became more of a structural management pyramid instead of a team.

Only two leaders in the organization have been consistent with their proper approach to the company, CEO and SVP HO&OS , they look like excellent managers that anyone wants to works with them.

Some managers don't have experience handling people nor technical experience but they are managers because they are friends with somebody in leadership


If you want to succeed in Husky, you need to be friend or share coffee with leadership. Corporate offices people spend all their time walking around +15 and drinking coffee at Starbuck.


Areas of the company are silos working on their own without following company structure.


Corporate initiatives to the areas are some times not well planned and waste time to implement and areas are taking the approach to close the door to any initiatives (good or bad) coming from corporate


Major Organizational changes are done every year with the excuse of improving the organization, this cause that people live unease because they don't have job security
