The VP of Jacobs basically promised to bring on-board all the surge hires that Jacobs hired during the year. It didn't happen. It feels like being lied to which is not a pleasant feeling.I was thrown into a position in which I had no experience. I learned how to do the job as I was performing the job. Tough way to learn.
Pros
I was sort of left alone to do the job when I had no experience in the position.
Cons
There was little to no guidance by management.

People in Jacobs in Calgary, AB office are very friendly and helpful, and they are professional enough to handle work related matters. I enjoyed my experience working with them.

For me a typical day included working on day to day tasks as well as some long term projects. There were, however, times when there were few long term projects to keep me busy.

Safety is a joke. Compensation is a joke. Poor work environment. The management sucks. They are non reliable. And there is poor conditions to work in. NO JOB SECURITY FROM ONE WEEK TO THE NEXT.

The staff and management were top notch. Open door policy. If you needed help with anything or special tools or requests they helped you out as much as they could. Enjoyed my time there.

Professionally challenging some times due to various management changes throughout tenure. Met some great people and helped to change the safety culture to one of mutual trust.

There was a stint on this job where we didn't get paid for over a month. Other than that, the QC crew was fun, the craft were skilled and cooperative, which made it a fun place to work.

Très bonne direction, j’ai aimé l’expérience de travail. Par contre, j’ai trouver l’espace de travail un peu restreint.

Good workplace environment with lots of support if needed. You will be working alone often and must continuously plan ahead to remain productive. Overall great place to work for those with a good work ethic.
