rail car loader (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON6 March 2019
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.

Used to Be a good place to work
Operator/Labourer (Current Employee) –  Fort Saskatchewan, AB26 October 2018
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.
Pros
Below management alot of good people. Decent Salary and good benifits.
Cons
Management, tyranny, ran with 0 respect for the average emplyee.

Not a good company
Logistics Analyst (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 January 2018
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.

Nothing

Crude Oil Accountant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 January 2018
Your training is on the job. Very little in formal training or procedures. Some departments have a lot of rules around hours and when you can take your lunch. Lack flexibility.

Strong production driven organization
Manager - Facilities, Health & Safety (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB6 January 2018
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.

Decent pay, but not without sacrifice.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 December 2017
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.

Toxic Management
Operations (Current Employee) –  Sarnia, ON18 October 2017
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.
Pros
It’s a job
Cons
It’s not a career.... with this company

A growing midstream oil and gas company where majority of employees are under 35. As a result has a entepreneurial feel but lacking in structure.
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 January 2017
Good company for those just graduating and wanting to learn the business. Like new grads and eager to promote but reach a plateau after 4 or 5 years.

Do not offer much flexibility around work hours or alternate work arrangements.

Operator (Former Employee) –  Empress, AB28 June 2016
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.
