Decent place to work was laid off unexpectedly due to Covid. Was Promised on going contract and laid off 2.5 months later. Was upsetting as I left a decent job to go there. Very displeased with OE955 Union. They claim that you will be a member within 3 months but they do anything and everything in their power to stall and delay membership. I met all requirements in April nd still fighting for benefits 6 weeks later

Most supervisors are good 1 bad One
Upper management poor and are always looking to find blame just like trump

No one is happy working there it’s just a job they cut your rates and you have to travel 45 min from the gate on your own time This adds 2 hrs 20 min to your day unpaid turn over is high

If you're looking for a fast pace of work and good pay, then this is it. Good foremen to work with. If your skill level is good enough, they don't micro manage you.

We ran a 14/7 schedule with camp.. the rotation isn’t for everyone but I loved it. Great way to make money.
Supervisors were great, with an odd one out here and there but that is to be expected. Good iron, good mechanics 100% recommend this company

Good pay, good people, work hours are long, sometimes camp stay, usually shift work, working for North American but under a general contractor such as syncrude or Suncor.

This was a great experience. I highly recommend this company especially under the new senior management. I would work again with NACG if my career aligned with my desired quality of life.
Pros
Skill development, salary, teamwork
Cons
Some resistance to collaboration

Listen to the guys that were moving dirt while you were still peeing your pants. Stop the favouritism.... quit catering to the cute women. Talk to your employees instead of at them.
Hire some physical trainers to actually teach your green employees how to do the job you want them to do. ..... And pay your employees the proper wages and pay scale that Is dictated by law.
Pros
You get the time off that you need
Cons
Not following the pay scale dictated by law, I.e. Not getting paid overtime after 8, not getting paid for 12 hours .

I was the best operator any of the supervisors that I worked under had ever seen but at the end of the day you are just a number. Wish I could’ve had a life long career here but I was short less than 15 hours on the probation period for the union when they did cuts and I got sent home. Tried talking to the supervisors and managers but they just said there is nothing they can do.
Pros
Its union
Cons
Unpaid travel time

Some good supervision unfortunately they work for a company that does not care about employees at all, on site for over 12 hours paid 11.5 not including the unpaid hour travel each way. Pay union dues for a union that does absolutely nothing. Zero moral within the crew, very bad environment.
Hire new people with zero industry experience and give minimal training then wonder why they cannot go a week without a major incident, safety staff is non existent.

Work the schedule and shift change days to give employees minimal overtime.

Absolute garbage equipment because mantenamce department is severely understaffed because they can't hire people.

Unbelievable turnover rate for a reason.....
Pros
Free water
Cons
Not enough room in this column for the cons

I learned more in 2 months at NACG than most of the rest of my career. Great projects, good leadership. The compensation for remote locations was good.

It was a position with deadlines and accuracy, in saying that it was a good job to have. I learned a lot of data entry and email correspondence with clients. I enjoyed working the people there had a really good name for myself with our clients which made me proud of the work I was doing for the company.

Some of the deadlines were very hard to accomplish so some of us girls had to come in early and try to catch up before the net day started or we would take work home at the end of the day.
Pros
longweekend we got to go home early
Cons
salary
