Wouldn't recommend
The pay was good. First time in a camp it seemed fine. My first time at a huge work site. I was thrown on machinery because they assumed I was trained at Earth Works. That's HR and the supervisors not communicating. I noticed alot of favoritism which I guess may be normal but others treated like dirt. The machinery is poorly maintained always breaking down. When I went to a different department on site RCC they actually treated people with respect and noticed there was always work to be done and people worked hard for them. The money is great, camps fine but I wouldn't recommend. I was really disappointed how I was treated at Earthworks but RCC let me finish off on a good note.

Got fired because the manager needed money to pay for his friends flights from Newfoundland.
PRHP managers did not work collaboratively together. There were too many little empires.
They hired experienced people, but wouldn’t listen to their Advil!
Pros
Good salary
Cons
No benefits, no job security, no salary raises for life of project.

Good place to work
If camp work fits into your life schedule then this is a great place to work. Awesome modern camp. Good foremen on most crews. Never rushed to do a job. Big project and site can get a bit confusing sometimes, but always get sorted out in the end. Great pay and good benefits. Equipment needs upgrade now.

Never trust what the bosses tell you
Good wages and overtime. Terrible representation from CLAC union. Watch for drug addicts on site. Never speak out, Never teach your trade to others. Watch for back stabbers.

Could be better
The money is awesome. The camp looks awesome, but the food is horrible. The equipment is run into the ground. Management doesn't care about the staff.

An amazing opportunity
With over 30 years in Underground Mining I looked forward to the challenge of working on the tunnels for this large dam. As I have extensive knowledge and experience in difficult ground and water management I was able to apply these to this project.
I was proud of my team's ability to meet every milestone put before us.

It was not a great experience
Far to much turn over. Management is from a different country & they are used to doing things differently than in Canada.
Frustrated employees.

The moral is usually very low.

No good
They are ruthless. The money is good. But they are very miss-managed. The management has no idea what they are doing. They don't care about the workers.

Chaotic work environment
At the time the company was just starting up. It was a joint venture between 3 different companies which let to an unstable environment at the time. I am sure things have improved since I left a couple of years ago, but at the time of my employment, there was a lot of turnover in management which made it difficult to get into a rhythm.

Cons
poor managment, and lack of any direction or talent.

Panic React Hope and Pray
This conglomerate company is poorly managed and seems to fight between disciplines for work areas. I have worked there for 3 years steady so difficult to complain in that regard. Panic React Hope and Pray
