Horrible management
Tradesman (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC30 January 2019
Avoid working for this company and go work for anyone else. PRHP management and safety are horrible, there is zero safety presence on site and it seems someone gets hurt daily yet there are 6 safety trucks sitting in the office complex parking lot at any given time. Management is basically who you know is how you got your position. Crew mates were good although everyone (foreman and general forman included) was always looking for a new job.
Pros
Nice camp
Cons
Everything else

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC2 January 2019
Terrible place to work. The camp is good but the work and management is terrible. Favouritism at its finest. People that get hired to do jobs end up at the bottom with a shovel in their hand. Will never be going back

Extremely Disfunctional
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC22 December 2018
This company was formed to build a dam with a group of less than qualified people, mostly local. They were very dysfunctional and wasted a lot of tax payers money. For every 2 people they hire , they fire one. The only reason they are still on the project is because the client is just as dysfunctional. Stay Away.
Pros
Some good staff
Cons
Endless

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NB12 December 2018
PRHP was one of the most rewarding jobs,dam building and moving 600,000 meters of concrete was great for the company and the employees. the company itself safety wise wasn't up to industry standard.

Not Stable
Employee (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC5 December 2018
While I did work there, I did enjoy my work. It was fast paced and there was always something to do to keep you busy. But it is not somewhere to work when your seeking a long term, permanent job. They can let you go with no warning.

Worst run job out there
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC3 November 2018
Can’t say enough bad about this job and management, worst run job I’ve ever been to. Constant daily job threats. Complete favouritism. Biggested gong show going right now. If you do end up coming here make sure it’s to right bank, left bank is a total mess ran by idiots and a wannabe tough guy of a GF.
Needs a complete management sweep!
Pros
Decent camp
Cons
Everything about work

Nice camp, close to town.
745 C Rock Truck Operator/ Packer Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC28 October 2018
The company doesn’t care about you. You can work extra, go that extra mile, work when your sick ( the flu in camp is rampant), but it is not recognized. You are just a body and can and will be replaced at a moments notice. And if your a female the general attitude from many of the superintendents is unless you put out you should be at home where women belong. The union is a joke. And so are the union reps.
Pros
Nice camp, good wage
Cons
Swing shifts, management favouritism, low moral

Railroaded
Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC3 October 2018
There are MANY amazing people on this job. They care about what they do, and they give 110% everyday. There is true passion on this job site. Everyone wants to be here for the project, but not for the company.

It is as a result, very hard to see everyone get railroaded by the company. There is no appreciation, no feedback, no recognition, no advancement (unless through your superiors failures, which results in increased responsibility without pay adjustments).
You went the extra mile? crickets. Found massive cost savings? crickets. Boosted production? crickets. Management simply doesn't care. It's like being the first-born in a large family. You could recite Beethoven's Symphony 7 blindfolded with one arm, hoping to gain some kind of approval, or a sign of love, and all you get as a "that's nice dear".

The many amazing people here have built a social help network. An unspoken understanding and encouragement group that helps keep everyone sane. It's a secret society that almost all the employees are part of that allows everyone to vent frustrations. It is what keeps this job going.

Salaries here are hilariously unbalanced to the point that new grads are making the same amount as those with 8 years experience (sometimes more). You should be compensated to the level of your performance, skill, and experience, and that doesn't happen here.

There is some good news however! Due to the turnover of employees here, you can definitely boost your networking abilities, and drive up the LinkedIn connections quite substantially.

If you want experience, you will 100% get
  more... what you put in. If you want advancement, training for future roles, or anything else, don't hold your breath.  less
Pros
Good People
Cons
Please sir can I have another

Pros

Cons
Poor planning, lazy supervision

Office (Current Employee) –  FSJ31 August 2018
A fast paced, challenging environment and a productive atmosphere. The busy nature of work makes the long hours fly by. Always something to learn. Can be fulfilling to see how you contribute to the overall project in your own role.
