Could be better

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Run

No amount of money is worth the dysfunction and corruption of this type of organization. It’s tempting to be a bum in a seat an make a killing but to take no pride in what you do, who you work for, what you’re building, where you’re investing your time, being unable to utilize what you know, or learn anything new, learn from anyone you work for, it does something to a person after a while.

Pros

So much money

Cons

Unlimited cons

Diverse scope of work and labour intensive

Too many young bucks with no or little work experience just hanging out while a select few do the work. Management sees it but have tied hands on account of the union. The lazy ones take full advantage of not being able to get fired.Good work, VERY good pay, excellent camp and amazing people for the most part.

Pros

Amazing Camp, great staff

Cons

Too many Pilons with faces.

Pay is decent

Go to work, collect your paycheck. Be prepared to move the same dirt 5 times. The job scope is neat. Watch out for your own safety and your brother and sisters back.

Pros

Crews, camp is clean

Cons

equipment is beaten.

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.

Grade school and should pay attention to Reviews

Not an environment conducive to learning or advancement. You need to be friends with the Foreman and Rat out your brother to fit in. You’re not placed in a position based on what you know it’s who you know. Very inefficient management. Won’t change up task to give others a fair shot!

Poorly managed , disorganized ,

So poorly managed its unreal. We couldn't get tools , wear parts or even bolts to carry on with our work. Safety turns a blind eye to incidents , and there seems to be zero repercusions for continual infractions.

Pros

Wages, flights

Cons

Food is awful, management
Was this review helpful?

Lack of leadership.

Some foreman are great, have lots of knowledge and work well with the crews, but are held back by upper management that don't know better. And other forman are clueless and having a power trip, and have no respect for the crew they are running.

Full time worker the for 1 season.

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

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Everything else

fast paced work environment

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.

Worst run job out there

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

Never seen a company operate this way

No planning, it’s a great project with lots of potential BUT the management has to change to make things work properly. To many ideas and needs to be simplified...... work smarter NOT harder

Pros

Great bunch of craft workers here that will have your back

Cons

Poor planning, lazy supervision
Was this review helpful?

very steady loading of washplant aggregates hot change and equipment checks as well as detailed JHA's

Good people to work with Nice camp, friendly staff Safety emphasized but not as stringently enforced as the Oil Sands 2 weeks in and 1 out 12.5 hour hot change shifts

unhappy place to work

poor management, newer equipment, there is no security they have people come and go on the regular basis. The only good part is the camp if you get to stay there and are of strong health to fight off camp flus

Pros

newer equipment

Cons

poor management

Worst place I have ever worked!!

No direction No support Zero safety Zero advancment Zero training Complete gong show No communication Horribe and toxic environment Should be under investigation...... WCB should have an office there, so they can't hand pick the operators they talk to and send the rest of us to work areas they don't go visit.

Pros

Zero

Would still be there if not for seasonal layoff, Camp was one of best I have been in. Busy place if gov lets project go forward currently under review

Pros

Cons

Frustration
Was this review helpful?

Was steady work until layoffs came around.

Still sour about this company, and the union I was working for. 15 Months of hard work and they let 250+ go because they couldn't plan future work. I understand the government is doing a revue and is limiting work, but the people they let go were not in any way reviewed for their qualifications or dedication to work. Everyone is a number with no seniority to save them.

Pros

good camp

Cons

unsteady work
