Pros
All travel and living expenses paid for by the company

Get ready to be busy. detail is important, processes are yours to build if there is not yet one in the area. Overtime is something you will get used to, but the benefits are worth it. Don't forget to take time for yourself and have a great time getting to know the ins and outs of this quickly growing company.

Parkland is a great place to work with fun and friendly team members. They know when to work and when to have fun. Everything I know about being an administrative assistant and the Oil and Gas industry, I learned from being with Parkland.

Worked as a fuel and propane truck driver for 2 years. Very disorganized, spend a lot of time in ridiculous meetings. They have a lot of good perks (benefits) if you are lucky enough to figure out how to obtain them. For the most part I was overworked and underpaid. Managers are very uncaring. Just my opinion from the 2 years I worked there.

A terrible place to work, total compensation is not competitive in the Calgary market or in the industry. The "leadership" (director level) have little to no industry experience or knowledge and no leadership skills. An absolute toxic workplace where people live in fear. The executive leadership team is clueless to the toxic culture beneath them and lack of knowledge in their "senior leadership team."

Parkland has been growing so fast that the pace of work is very busy with trying to incorporate new companies into the Parkland processes. The safety team was good to work with and the field personnel were open and willing to work with safety.

The staff and management were great. Learned a lot from each and everyone I had the experience to meet. hardest part of the job was learning to do the ordering online for the business. The greatest thing about the job was the interaction with the customers. I learned how to bake and do the ordering for the side that I worked in. Was a great learning experience.

I would not recommend Parkland Fuels. Senior Leadership is the biggest part of the problem. There is a disconnect in communication. They will not make a decision nor will they give you any commitments.

regular day at work: store maintenance ,inventory, placing orders on computer and through various merchants, serving customers at cash, answering phone calls, interviewing new candidates, managing the staffs needs, scheduling,

hardest part i'd say would be time management alot of things happening at the same time an applies pressure to meeting deadlines.


Best part for me is the people that i worked with (employees, managers, supervisors)

Parkland grown so quickly it is a constant integration project with all the problems that come with that. Office politics right up to senior management places employees in the crossfire. Managers are sometimes weak and instill a culture of fear. Good people are to be controlled while management doesn't deal with poor performers. The business itself is very interesting and challenging but Parkland is the worst place I have worked in my long career. I would not recommend them.

They don’t care about you

Just another money hungry oil company

Almost went homeless from their horrible accounting departments mistakes

Each day was very different from the next. You had to be prepared for what the day would bring for you and your customers. I have learned a lot about team work and how to best meet the needs of my customers in a very challenging, economic environment. A strong positive attitude delivers success. The hardest part of the job was accepting the fact that I couldn't meet all the needs of the customer or the business sometimes. It was usually due to factors out of my control. I really enjoyed the team environment and building a strong relationship to our team and the other departments. Management is very dedicated to its vision for the business. It adapts to the ever changing growth of the company.
