Cook (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 13 April 2018
Treated like a number with this company, they make you work for free with no over time and even if you don’t take breaks they still take hrs away. Your forced to do more then one job and place is very unsafe to work the short cuts that the staff have to take is going to end up killing someone. This company doesn’t not care. Use to be amazing but new management destroyed this place. Unfit this place should be shut down.
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 April 2018
I didn't stay very long at Noralta because it was definitely one of the worst work experience of my life, no management at all you're just being a number and they don't have any consideration. Understaffed, work load in the kitchens is HUGE and keep on getting bigger most of the time so you end up doing UNPAID overtime pretty much every day and skipping your breaks. I WOULD NOT recommend this place, they treat people like dogs.
free food & accommodation
long hours, understaff, NO management, lack of consideration, people being exploited
good pay with long hours and too much workload sometimes
Precook/Breakfast Cook Fort McMurray (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 9 January 2018
Awesome Pay with free food, gym and accommodations. Since I was mostly doing breakfast work load was too much compared to other jobs in the kitchen. Some managers were good and some weren't very professional. The hardest part of the job was getting a good night sleep because breakfast was a grave yard shift.
Prep cook/GH (Former Employee) – Borealis fort Mc – 10 November 2017
Most of the kitchen worker come early like an hour ahead and don’t have the time to take breaks cause you have to finish the duties assigned otherwise you will get behind.Bad thing is you work more hours and no break and it is unpaid.Give them for free.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 19 September 2017
Meeting people from different walks of life daily added the extra zest to be at work and enjoy the job. there was always something fun within the teams . the most difficult part was the shift rotation of 20 days on and 10 days off. the worst was the Fire in fort Mac where I was evacuted 3 times as I was on rotation when this happened
New challenge every day with around 85 people in my construction team
Director of construction (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 April 2017
The day start early in Fort Mac, tool meetings always at 7, safety discussion and work hazard is always part of that meeting, having big crews on site is always challenge for the construction superintendent and foreman, our positive culture on site make everyone life easy and fun to work and increase productivity, the hardest part of the job is to keep everyone safe specially on their 3rd week of their shift ( 21 days shift ) , people start to feel the pressure and the long hours ( 12 hours daily ) , the most enjoyable part of the job is when you accomplish the tasks on time and budget with no accident and problem, also sitting in the dining area at night celebrating these achivement with my team, its my job as management and their right as hard workers to be appreciated.
free full accomodation ( camp, meals and transportation )
Maintenaince worker (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 April 2017
This company is scabby. They treat employees poorly. A lot of dishonesty and manipulation. I would never work there again. Also they rip you off my making you work 10 hrs a day 20 shifts in a row for straight time, no overtime. I thought this was illegal.
Head office (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 21 December 2016
Turned for the worst. Doing what it takes to survive even if it meant pushing ethical barriers. False sense of security type of environment. For a company that claims to be "committed to its team members", it goes in one ear and out the other. HR has no power there. If you're looking for "just a job", this would be the place. However, if you're looking to grow and be validated as a true team member, I would keep searching.
The Job for most of the time I worked there was good, but now has taken a turn for the worse.
Baker (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 September 2016
Over the 6 years I have worked with Noralta I have learned many new techniques. The work was very challenging but not always rewarding. As of late the company has mostly new management and a completely new company culture . I do not think it was for the better at all.
