rail car loader (Current Employee) – Nanticoke, ON – 17 April 2018
This place sucks. Management is a complete joke, they bring in people to run the place that have no idea what they are doing. absolutely no integrity, they say something and do the opposite. No concern to retain employees, the turnover here is bad, and its all because of management. You are never paid properly, human resources can't be trusted and when you bring up issues to management it goes in one ear and out the other. there is a lot of favouritism, back stabbing, being set up for failure.
some good co workers, decent starting wage (still not enough)
no appreciation, terrible management, bad work environment, hard to get proper PPE
Technical Consultant (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 14 March 2018
Good co-workers try to help you learn and grow. Very helping and cooperative. Management of certain teams care less about your work life balance. One can handle an irate customer but not caring management also is like becoming a sausage in a sandwich.
Benefits are and good people to work with they teach you well and everyone is very helping
Shifts you get are linked to your ratings not with your work and personal life balance, Management of certain teams does not take action on your concerns
not a good workplace. pay little, expert too much and lots of stress, people keep leaving this company.
Chemist (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 February 2018
For graduated student, it is a good place to start and learn. they have lots of different product. good for new analyst to learn. but need to be ready for the push and work stress. need to work at least 15 min more every day.
Tailings operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 29 January 2018
No benefits, poor leadership, only get promoted if you have thick kneepads. they mistreat their employees and expect grade A work. don't work here! Never have I ever been so disrespected in my entire working career.
Receptionist and Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 8 December 2017
I liked working at SGS. Management was good and I learned a lot of new skills. I liked that they were supportive of people taking courses. They paid for me to take my Level 2 First Aid, WHMIS, and a Safe Driving course.
Paid vacation and once a year bonus
Huge workload and it was hard to get reception coverage
Lab Technologist (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 14 November 2017
it is multilabs now and has lots of department. This company no workplace culture at all.you just do yourself and come and go. there is even no Christmas party in this couple years. i can't believe it is world famous company.
nothing, right now sunrun each year free register.
no salary raise, benefit going down, no Christmas party
Scientist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 November 2017
A great place to start and learn. If you are young and willing to learn and/or refresh, great place to go. You will be exposed and get to learn a lot. However, it is a 'SWEAT LAB" and if you are seen to be the one wanting and willing to do everything, you will be worked and sweated. The salary is nothing to talk about.
Like I said you are exposed to everything. But it is worth it, if you wish to make this a career choice.
Technologist (Former Employee) – Lakefield, ON – 17 October 2017
A place to stretch your brain and get your hands dirty. Many innovative thinkers and doers at this facility. Much can be learned from colleagues and associates. Location is very nice; small town living.
Canada, Mechanical Technologist (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 September 2017
A good place to work as long as management does not involve themselves with the day to day running of operations. When management did involve themselves,chaos ensue. Most operations have a very transient staff.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 September 2017
Working at SGS Canada was a great experience for me. Learned the process of how to test grain using laboratory. Grind grain to a fine powder for testing. Managers are very professional and nice to work with.
Senior Metallurgist (Current Employee) – Lakefield, ON – 28 August 2017
Probably the premier testing company in the mining industry. Largest and most diverse knowledge base and opportunities for learning new mineral systems, etc. Recent changes to management have not been positive and has the actions they've made have created a very toxic work environment and they don't seem to understand the business or the issues.
Large company, many opportunities (so I'm told)
Latest management group has low respect for employees
Loader (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 5 August 2017
They treat their employees like expendable cattle...use and abuse and move on to the next new employee...total disregard for following their own policies and lack of professional integrity that they preach about so much...
Pay lower than industry standard, horrible relations between operations and employees
