Dedicated staff with a high value to ethics and customer service
Lead, External Quality Systems (Current Employee) – 4027, 14th street S.E. Calgary Alberta – 2 October 2018
In the time that I have been working for SGS, I have found that there is an unsurpassed drive to serve their clients to the best of their abilities given the amount of staff and management restrictions put onto the teams. SGS caters to a special niche within the pressure equipment industry that ensures that this part of the construction industry is equipped with the knowledge and informational tools required to succeed in safely constructing all of the various areas in the pressure equipment industry. I am very proud to have contributed to this organizations success to date.

Working with older equipment and in an older building
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Cochrane, ON – 18 August 2018
Worst work environment I have ever worked in. No leadership or proper training. Wages do not do justice to the amount and type of work you do. Schedual hours are way too long for the type of manual work you do.
Inspector (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 14 August 2018
Hourly wage is getting pretty close to the minimum wage (You make a decent pay as you work 80 hrs/week). You are NEVER home during high season and you don't know your schedule in advance. Managers treat you like they own you and you are nothing more than a tool for them. Depressing and toxic work environment at the main office. Favoritism and nepotism are the key to advance in the company.
Technical Welding Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 July 2018
(Specific to the Ludwig Welding Consulting Group) Management treats every employee as disposable trash. Communication throughout management is inexistent. Be aware that you will NEVER receive a raise above 2%, and the odds of receiving them are slim to none. Facilities are poor and outdated. Daily work tasks are a struggle to keep up with on regular time, and company will not pay for employees overtime. Constantly dealing with dissatisfied customers and clients.

Ingenieur métallurgiste (Current Employee) – Québec City, QC – 23 July 2018
Dans mon métier, on est toujours entrain d'apprendre et cet aspect qui me fascine et permet de chercher plus. Travailler en métallurgie c'est un défi et il faut l'aimer pour le faire. C’est ma passion.
Finance/Payroll Analyst (Former Employee) – Lakefield, ON – 20 July 2018
People can get fired after years of services if they feel they can save money somehow. Very poor management. Most staff do not stay too long. A few staff have stayed for years due to a secure job. My job was moved to Mississauga without much notice. Be careful
Money ok Bar B Q lunches
Long hours, poor management, poor company structure
Tech/specialist (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 May 2018
This place is a terrible work environment. Management is extremely inefficient and childish. Coworkers are great, guy gave little motivation. Good place to learn the basics but basically a small stepping stone for a career. Do yourself a favour and avoid this place , it's an STD.
Great job security, good people. Benefits are terrible
Terminal Operator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 May 2018
Worst benefits imaginable. Pay is a lot better in Western Canada for the same position. Overall the safety aspect of the job is amazing. Management is terrible and there’s not much room to move up within the company.
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.
