Labourer (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 September 2018
Worked my butt off to get laid off. Some of the workers do the bare minimum the stay employed. They expect you to show up on time getting paid from 7 to 7 but expect you to be there 15 minutes early to do FLHA, Tri-Forms and i disagreed with that as thats my time and money they are wasting. Foremans I worked with were very good at what they did. Some operators even get out and help labourers when safe. I learned a TON here, they let me operate remote packers, combo roller, tampers. All you have to do is ask your crew the right questions, listen and you will learn too. I am satisfied with what I learned with this outfit. Learned how to shoot grades in 2 days its basic grade 9 math. Benefits dont kick in for 9 months. Dont be late ever.
I got a slurpee and donuts one time. Safety was top notch.
Lots of entitlement, unpaid lunch when youre gated in, in a refinery.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 September 2019
Started out at kichton and loved it but they grew too big to fast. Managment ended up having the worse attitude towards employees always being told you should be thankful you're working like they're doing you a favour.
The buddy system and politics is the strongest I've ever seen at any company. If you dont know a foreman or a leadhand you can forget about even being noticed
Overall as long as that moron owner still runs the show, kichton will ultimately fail.
