Facility Operator (4th Class Power Engineer) (Current Employee) –  Coronach, SK4 November 2018
Working at SaskPower has been an excellent job. They help you advance your career by sending you on courses so you can train higher in the corporation. Moral within the corporation is something that needs to be worked on between management and employees.
Pros
Supported advancement.
Cons
Unionized setting. Management sometimes has issues in descision making.

Power Engineer (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK7 July 2018
I was a Practicum Student with Saskpower. I learned a lot from my personal experience with this company, which ranged from assisting in lockouts, backwashing filters, assisting in refilling hydrogen, doing daily rounds, etc. The crews I worked with were helpful and answered any questions I had.

A good place, but company needs to spend more money
Process Operator (Former Employee) –  Estevan, SK10 May 2018
It's a dirty place to work, in the coal plant. Machines are old and not well kept, and the company needs to spend more money to keep their equipment up to date, but overall, a nice place to work.

but the people were fun and the work/life balance was amazing!
Pros
Salary is great
