Poor company to work for

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Awful upper management, constant lies, terrible hiring practices and zero accountability of upper management and HSE, The company does not pay for any training and expects the employees to pay out of pocket for all of the courses that are required even the higher end courses like loader training and upgrading your licences to higher classes, they do not pay bereavement even if a funeral is out of country, employees must jump through hoops and even sometimes are forced to pay for flights from site when there is a family emergency

Pros

None

Cons

Lack of training, Poor wages, Poor benefits, Misguided information, Lack of knowledge within safety department.

Great Company to Work For!

I really found a good fit and work with an awesome team. I don't mind the fly in fly out gig. It gives me the opportunity to provide a good living and I get a decent amount of time off.

poor management

I worked for this company for a year and a half and they are not good The superintendents think they are smarter then they are. They tell you there's room for advancement and they keep hanging that over your head, but there really is no where for you to move up. The superintendents are inexperienced and so they don't know how to run the general foreman's. The general foreman's are equally inexperienced and so the place is not run well. The superintendents think that they are the most important people in the world. The wages are awful. Once you get to the top labourer wages which isn't even that high you can't get any higher. I didn't get a raise the whole time i was there cause i was already at the top but i again reiterate isn't that high. The superintendents chose there friends to fill general foreman and foreman roles, which included even bringing them over from another company instead of advancing people from within the company. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!!!

Pros

every other week off

Cons

awful management
