I learned a lot from working at plains midstream, not only was it a fun environment but it was also very educational. The shift foreman are very knowledgeable and overall very helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working for plains.

New management team has came in and acted as though there involved in a hostile take over treat employees very poorly. manage and lead through bullying and fear. Advancement only occurs if you are friends with someone or apart of the new Spectra regime that has come in. Shift team leads hired have 0 experience in facility they are working in. extremely short staffed were the number of green hat employees now out numbers the experienced ones. When experienced guys have left and stated the problems management attempts to reverse it and blame them and call them troublesome. employees get written up for pathetic reasons mostly due to management seemingly not like them and for things that could be resolved with a simple friendly conversation. if you could rate this plant lower then a one for management and job culture treatement etc it now deserves 0 stars. Has a strong operational and maintenance team that has virtually given up and keeps head low now for fear of there jobs which has created alot on animosity between the teams.
Below management alot of good people. Decent Salary and good benifits.
Management, tyranny, ran with 0 respect for the average emplyee.

Senior management is very disorganize and likes to create tension for people below them. This is the only company where in a meeting we were told to come in early and stay late but with no mention of compensation for these additional hours of work.
If you have a choice do not work here, it is not worth the mental anguish you have to deal with on a daily basis.

I found PMC to be an organization that struggled with a work life balance, driving production over the need to keep their employees engaged for the right reasons. The people at PMC were great, but had limited involvement in the growth and development of the organization.

A typical day at work: Day to day tasks with little to no recognition What you learned: Drinking and hanging out with the bosses does wonders for promotions. Management: More concerned about trying to promote themselves then helping their teams. Workplace culture: Do your work, don't ask questions. The hardest part of the job: Staying focused on your work without paying attention to all the politics The most enjoyable part of the job: The paycheck.

Very good company to work with. Employees are treated respectfully. Compensation is excellent. Good work/life balance. I highly recommend if you have an opportunity to work wit Plains Midstream that you do so.

Never seen a business that actively treats employees so badly, it seem like a badge of horour for management to treat employees like dirt. Even potential employees comment that during interviews, that Plains seems more worried about how badly you treat employees than how you could effectively manage a group.
Labourer/ plant worker (Former Employee) – Kindersley, SK – 30 June 2016
Things seemed great at the start and then the false promises and working over and above scheduled shifts, owner had horrible people skills, the staff are great, management has a lot to be desired so tread carefully of you do decide to take a chance

Overall I enjoyed working for Plains Midstream. The people on my crew were all kind and willing to help when needed. My only concerns were the shift set in place, and the lack of incentive to complete training.
