You'll regret it, just read the review & make your choice
Slot Attendant (Former Employee) –  Whitecap, SK12 January 2019
For starters, the provincial government (SLGA) has its thumb on this company, and its ran like a circus.

Most managers are not even close to be qualified for there positions. The front line employees are often the first to be made examples of at the managers expense just to get there point across. They don't know how to value or see hard working employees and they always seem to let the weak and dumbfounded workers slip through the cracks.

Very unprofessional when it comes to dealing with conflicts in the work place. It's a who you know and not what you know situation. And if you don't get in with a "it" crowd from the start, you'll be an outcast and made fun of or ridiculed at you're expense.

The smoking environment is very unhealthy, and yet they have the odasity to ask the front line staff not to wear cologne or perfume because some people are very sensitive to the smells, this one was a doozie!

The other issues is the time off requests, god forbid you take time off from work or get sick! To take vacation is frowned upon. And to actually use sick leave, you pretty much have to be on you're death bed or recovering from chemotherapy.

So overall, I regret giving this company 9 years of dedicated service! But if you feel like joining the circus, by all means jump through your hoops and start blowing you're balloon animals.

Good riddance ✌️
Pros
The pay was what made me put up with the circus show
Cons
Meeting a lot of great front line people

Productive company to work with, great health benefits, CCP, Understanding employer, go out of there way to help you, always wanting you to succeed, a very diverse work environment, the enjoyment of working with SIGA was meeting new people from different backgrounds, and the hardest was doing graveyard shifts, but once you got use to it then it was a fulfilling experience.
Pros

Cons
Graveyard shifts

Dishwasher (Former Employee) –  Prince Albert, SK7 June 2018
siga staff have nothing better to do then to talk behind each other's back and sleep with each other and do drugs.
they talk about who parties with who behind each other's back pretending to be there friend a second later.
Pros
makes you think what you say to who and how to choose your words carefully. not in a good way.
Cons
always have to watch your back, and who is talking about you, always have to more then your job title.

It was a very Productive and process oriented environment
Human Resources Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Prince Albert, SK2 March 2018
This company was a great place to work overall. The systems and internal processes were state of the art like their JDE modules. The leadership positions we’re a bit challenging as movement consisted of waiting fr long periods of time or having to decide to move on as a result of it. They do have good leadership training.
Pros
Good benefits, salaries and culture
Cons
Long Hours.

All about who you know
Gec (Former Employee) –  Northbattleford sk17 January 2018
Wow ! Thought this would be a good work adventure/experience and adventure it was. Everyone talks about each other , upper management has no clue how to run each department and likes to tell everyone how to do their jobs it's all about who you know . People are in positions they are not qualified for , certain people in managerial positions only obtained It from their parents/in laws/relatives. If your not a part of the rumor mill you will be made the rumor. There are a few good employees that go above and beyond even as far as to help out with other departments how ever they are frequently weeded out which only keeps the environment toxic. This is like one big band office with a you scratch my back I'll scratch yours mentality which in translation is -you hide my mistakes I'll hide yours-.
Alot of employees ride the backs of others who actually know their jobs and do them well. Staff turn over is high and alot of cut backs in staff it's always about the budget so they are frequently short staffed leading to work place injury and increased sick time. In a nut shell if you feel like working your butt off with out appreciation then join this circus.

Great Values Overlooked
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK29 December 2017
The organization itself is 22 years old and has great values that they base their foundation. These values are not honored. This is an organization that has cliques and if you don't fit in you are on your own. My experience is you are always under attack and you are never supported. I loved the people I worked with. The team aspect on a daily basis was great but if you are not First Nations nothing you say or do will be valued with this company. The senior leaders don't honour the Guiding Principles that this company established. They need to re-evaluate what their mission is and look at bringing new senior leaders in to the company that are progressive and value people. Human Resources is not valued......operations is what makes the money. The CEO is a fantastic person and leader but has no idea what his executive team does that he is not aware of.

Live games (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK6 June 2017
The work and training they offer is always on point. They do not how ever keep up with renewing them until asked or given emails from the head office which should not have too.
I have worked with this company for 10 years and I am not sure I would go back.
Pros
great friends and meeting patrons
Cons
The higher up workers as supervisors, some managers do need little bit more education on some things as i would say.

Would not recommend
Safety Specialist (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK21 April 2017
Poor workplace culture. Be prepared for people to go back on their word. HR department was a very unhappy place for employees. Would not recommend that department. The other departments seemed a lot happier and fulfilled.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Confusing direction. Can't think for yourself and Management will take all the credit.

stress stress no life and stress
Manager of Security (Current Employee) –  Prince Albert, SK21 March 2016
Upper management very difficult to deal with; to the point of harassment as they do NOT appreciate you taking time off ; even if its earned vacation time prior to taking time off you must have a supervisor fully trained to do the job of management, and if they mess up, when you return you are still held accountable. Expectations include being on call 24\7 . Micromanaged by 2 operations managers...& a very picky assistant general manager. Included in this is also a human resources manager who does whatever she is told to do by senior management. Has no brain to make decisions on her own.
Based on salary, sounds sounds great, until you discover that you need to attend marketing events, unpaid, sit on whichever board they tell you too, unpaid, and almost every day end up working over fourteen hours, at 7.5 hours pay. No life, not worth it.
The floor staff for most part are great, hardworking people, honest and respectable, however, many staff end up fired because of senior managements micromanaging, and do not allow their managers say, therefore the managers are always painted as the bad guy.
There is no trust at management level, their all wolves.
The only good thing was the pay.
