Decent place for locals
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Joffre15 December 2018
Great schedule and nice to be home every night. Management says the right things but ultimately shows they care very little for their disposable employees. Little chance for advancement and no job security
Pros
Excellent schedule
Cons
No reward for loyalty or effort

Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB22 March 2018
My experience with Quinn was positive. Management cares about their people and Client satisfaction in a challenging industry. Quinn would be best served by focusing on obtaining better rates from their clients and passing the benefits to their workforce.
Pros
People and management
Cons
Client driven compensation forces Quinn to optimize workforce compensation

A good and safe place to work is at Quinn Contracting
Pipe Fitter (Former Employee) –  Blackfalds Alberta22 February 2018
A typical day review work requirements, Learned that all people have some requirements to help maintain there day. Management upper is very good at there job. The workplace culture is good most of the time, some of the time floor level foreman needs more training to do there jobs better. The hardest part of the job was to help motivate others to focus on there jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a major task was completed safely and in a timely fashion.
Pros
The people working there.
Cons
Floor level leadership needs more training to do there jobs better.

Good old by network. It's who you know. Definitely not what you know
Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Shutdowns3 March 2018
Need to strengthen upper management. Stop hiring guys that don't belong in certain positions. TAKE DSP'S on the tools. You don't have a company unless your a Forman and up? Ridiculous.
Pros
Searching still.
Cons
Don't take DSP's unless your a Forman or higher.

Quinn went above and beyond by providing me with a safe and exciting workplace in a time where such opportunities for employment were scare. The managing team of the Rocky District were some of the best in the buisness, always providing a steady stream of jobs during uncertain times.
