Project Manager / Detailing Team Lead. (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK8 July 2019
I use to work there as Detailing and project manager, it has a good atmosphere and also a keen top management For new challenges .
If you consider yourself as experienced in steel fabrication area , you are right fit there , or if you are a guy keen to learn and challenge your knowledge, this place is still fit for you.

Only problem there is location , which is far from big cities.
Pros
A lot
Cons

Soul sucking environment
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK25 April 2019
By far the worst management I've ever seen. The shop floor was run by very nice but unqualified, inexperienced lead hands and supervisors. The office management would come down and have meetings with all the shop floor employees about how poor the quality of work was or how slow we were working. Nothing good enough.
Pros
Employees on shop floor are very friendly
Cons
To many to list

Hard place to work
Welder, Fitter, lead hand, supervisor (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK29 March 2019
It was hard to work here as there was a wall built between management and the workers. No security. Great people on the floor to work with. Wide variety of things to learn but no consistency in the training.
Pros
close to home
Cons
great divide between management and floor workers

You want to loose your self respect and dignity go join Saskarc
Employee (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK26 March 2019
You want to lose your self respect and dignity go join Saskarc. Apart from a CEO who is usually traveling, unfortunately the Leadership and Senior Management were the worst and most disrespectful experience ever. The two brothers in the Leadership are the one who runs the show and bring all the dust on job specially the one who looks like a giraffe, acts like Hitler and feels very powerful in the company.
Pros
Middle of no-where, diverse job responsibilities, no KPIs in real
Cons
Too much insults and disrespect

discrimination at its best
Shop to Office staff (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK25 November 2018
If you are someone who feel bad and hurt if you are discriminated or see discrimination this is not the right place for you.

I have been discrimination here, I have seen discrimination here, coworkers/Managers even make fun of people based on body structure - fat, age, female, thin, short, etc.

Do remember being a family owned business, you can't bring your voice like you do in public or multinational companies, etc. The only one's who are written up by HR are the ones Managers are trying to kick out for another reason.
Pros
People from different cultures in shop and in office
Cons
discrimination at its best

For a student, this place is the best place to work for in a small town.
Labourer, Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK13 July 2016
Part-time workers would enjoy working here, their starting salary is good for someone who will be working for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week. You can also work full-time during the summer months, you'll learn more about the trades if you're willing. Co-workers are the best with the typical bad bunch. The only hard part of the job is during summer where you and two others are tasked at cleaning the blast shed and blast hut. They offer training for welding, forklift and crane operation, and mechanical stuff. Management is pretty flexible for their employees.

Horrible managment that dont know what they are doing
mechanic (Former Employee) –  Leduc, AB4 April 2015
Pay was OK, horrible management, bad micromanaging. Would not work for again. Most employees followed a very odd religion which conflicted with work and their job. Most had no knowledge in terms of dealing with customers and the oil patch. Hardest part of the job was having to sleep in the service truck in the parking lots of hotels as they wouldnt get me a room
Pros
pay was OK
Cons
had to sleep in service truck in parking lots as they wouldnt get me a hotel

It is a great place to work if you are looking for experience. The location in Oxbow is remote and relocation can be an issue
Project Manager / Structural Steel Construction (Former Employee) –  Oxbow, SK10 April 2014
There is a lot of room to learn. I learnt a lot of things about heavy constructions and Project Management. My co-workers were excellent and it was a great learning experience. The hardest part is understanding the protocols as the company has none.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Remote location
