Culture change with new management.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Direct Manager was great to work with. Listened to and worked to mitigate issues. Upper Management used to feel caring and engaging, however to not feel that the culture is the same under new management. Safety is a top priority with this company.

Amateur. Lack of competent leadership and resources. Under staffed.

You will be tasked with performing the work load of several employees. Coming to work early to gain an advantage on the workload will lead to being taken for granted, and management will then use that time to schedule more work. They do not hire adequate personnel to perform work safely, to the point of delaying updating SOP's as that would force them to hire more staff to follow those updates. They do not offer a competitive wage to attract competency when they do try to hire. They will lower journeyman rates at review time to skirt legislated pay raises. They attempt to have employees use personal time to perform required maintenance on machinery, refusing to allocate business hours to safety sensitive maintenance.


Local. Mon-Fri.


Taken for granted, to the point of it being borderline abusive.

Stressing and unattended work place

The company is good, but the management does not do their job, there is a terrible disorganization, there is no teamwork, if you have a problem management does not care, if you have an accident at work, they try to outsmart you and If you don't complain, they let it go so you don't report it. If you have medical attention without consulting them, they get upset and try to blame you.

Great advancement opportunities

If you're willing to put in the work, there is great opportunities for advancement. They moved to being remote during the pandemic and didn't seem like there was desire to go back into office.

Stay away! If you like being exploited and be treated like a disposable then work here

Management is a joke, they don't train you for nothing, they just drop you to someone to observe, then when you finally know something by your own efforts, they won't give you your necessary tools to do the job! I personally just gathered broken and disposed tools by me coworkers just to do the job,. You won't be able to call and sick for 2 years if you're not hired in January! STAY AWAY!!!

unproductive morning general meetings, was more like morning beatings. High absentee rates, rampant alcoholism. You'd be better off as an inmate at any correctional institution.

Productive workplace

Pays alright, work task's pretty much easy, just some yard works and dealing with tubing and sucker rods. Offers overtime with different shifts. Decent management.

Productive and fun workplace with table tennis table

Work hard and within the supervisor's prescribed schedule and you'll be ok. Ask and keep asking for long hours if you desire to work overtime. Shawcor Ltd. is a fun place to work. Ask for as much help as you need but stand up for yourself as your coworkers are not responsible for providing you with the correct information, your superiors, including your supervisors, engineers, and managers are.


Free lunches

Productive. Fun place to work

People are great. Management is supportive. Downside is pay is not that good and you work for long days almost no time for yourself and family. Overall the conpany is good but don't expect for growth and advancement.

Zero job security.

Low quality management. After 3 positive yearly reviews I was terminated without cause (employer term "layoff") along with around 200 others via a remote "meeting". Employees are routinely lied to by management and then discarded like yesterdays garbage. Engineers and managers who failed to solve technical product issues kept their jobs while lower level employees were purged en masse.

Overall I enjoyed working at Shawcor. It was unfortunate they let good people go after buying Flint.

Overall I enjoyed my position at Shawcor. It would have been appreciative if they acknowledged the hard work and time invested in learning about the company.

just don't work there

Unless you're 19 and have no plans for your future, this isn't the place you want to work. Only a chosen few of the long time employees ever get trained for better jobs. Management for the most part is clueless. The shifts are long, the equipment is under-maintained, and the whole building leaks every time it rains. It takes a long time to get to a decent rate of pay.


Decent benefits plan. Union.


No work/life balance.

No Job security

No job security as i was doing good and one day they gave me termination letter without any cause and didn’t tell me the exact reason..

Personal Growth and Career Development

Excellent corporate values and personal development. Since this is an energy services company that is tied to the oil and gas industry, there are layoffs every 4-5 years.
