Productive workplace with a dedicated workforce working together for the success of the company. Management is actively working to weather the current economic storm brought about by the oil and gas crash and Covid-19

All employees are treated fairly and work spread evenly. Managers and coordinators bend over backwards to help you and accommodate your needs. Couldn’t ask for a better place to work.

I have nothing good to say about this place. so I will do what my mom thought me to do and just let it be. Some people loved this place like their second home. I found it to be like a slave camp.
Pros
Free Gym
Cons
Long hours, policing even your every move-even drinking water

Packers is a lovely place to work, great staff and a fun environment. They have a gym that is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week . Can be a high stress job, but excellent teamwork through out the shop.

Working at packers was amazing, the main fault working there was the field they deal with. Although I loved working there. But the ups and downs of oil creates fast and slow times. Making it hard to move up in the company. Eventually lay offs hit and thats why I no longer work there. Great place to work though!

I was pioneering Project management in IT for the Edmonton location. Like every change, not easy but it worked. Communication and awareness were essential.

The time i spent with Packers Plus was the most exciting & rewarding of my professional career. They always gave me the knowledge & support i needed to succeed. My employment ended when the price of oil crashed & they could no longer stay open in Estevan. I have zero complaints with the company as a whole or she people i worked with!

Great place to work and has been for the 12+ years I have been here. But being an oilfield business there is a lot of uncertainty. I would recommend anyone to apply here.
Pros
Great relationships
Cons
Oilfield

Lack of training, they expect you to learn it all by yourself and then blame you if anything went wrong. Not a friendly place to start.

They hired a lot of people when oil prices were going down then they laid off most of them, bad management decisions.
Pros
Gym
Cons

They care about safety (right up until it gets in the way of profits). Every single company activity includes copious amounts of alcohol and drunk people.
Pros
Very good money
Cons
A 24 hour shift was a short day

It's a small company with a big footprint, so if you like wearing multiple hats and learning new things this is the place for you. Great benefits package and bonus structure.
