Great Job
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB26 April 2018
Really enjoyed my time working at Newalta. Friendly environment, friendly people and good atmosphere. In the end there was a lack of work due to the decline in the oilfield.

Stressful
Transportation Operations Mangaer (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON27 March 2018
Daily stress was the challenge at this place. Lack of support and poor management offer lead to more frustration. However there Ontario branches are now closed and have been sold and there assets rebranded. Hopefully it improves the overall culture of the company.
Pros

Good place to work
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort St John, BC25 February 2018
I liked it there. it was stinky plant to work but good people. There junior manager was full of himself but ok at times. most management is ok. Co workers are good too. Great schedule, 1 week on 1 week off. Only bad part really was the admins. they were ok sometimes but often full of themselves and looked down on operators, They thought they were same level as management. They made mistakes often on payroll too. Newalta as a whole had a lot of admins and management that got bonus at year end but always short changed there plant operators. Even saying this though it was still a good place to work.
Pros
Good work schedule, decent management, great coworkers
Cons
stinky envirinment, no year end bonus for plant operators

Poor Training, expected to do all the rigs stuff after you get hired
Solids Control Technician / Excavator Operator (Former Employee) –  Leduc, AB19 January 2018
Drillsite Division

Poor Training, No tools when out on site due to guys not putting things back, or no tools at all, get hired to mix and load trucks, but have to load/unload product/ pipe, be the rigs helper for less than lease hand wage, get pushed hard all day having to deal with rig support and what you need to get done. Some days you'd be lucky to get to eat. Can charge by the km but after the fact only to closest hub.(ie: if your based out of Leduc and having to work near Grand Prairie only able to charge from GP. Lots of wear and tear on personal trucks.
Pros
Some good guys to work with
Cons
Poor Management, and pay for the work you end up doing

Used to be a great company.
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 June 2017
Sad to see the decline of a once great company. New culture in organization places no value on employees knowledge or experience. It views employees only as a cost and not a resource to generate value.
