Company needs more staff. Current staff that’s still employed are doing multiple jobs. Staff should be paid more hourly if expected to do extra tasks.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
Stressful environment

Great company to work for, lots of opportunities to pursue. Can be a very fun place to work at. You tend to feel accomplished at the end of each shift.
A place that keeps you busy and lets you enjoy it, can be very satisfying.

Future looking company safety oriented with interesting people culture. Diverse new equipment and new technology, very interesting to figure out optimization. Lots of work orders for maintenance, most of the time had the feeling not enough team mates available. Fair pay, especially for call in, supportive on apprenticeship schooling and lots of learning potential available. From time to time micro management

they absolutely will chew you up and spit you out, you're a number, not a human, you can make friends, and some supervisors are actually alright, but it feels more like prison than a career.

Nice co-workers. Some days can be slow depending on the work at hand in the shop. Upper Management can do better and catch up with the modern work culture.

do you like an ever changing landscape with toxic co workers, but for some reason decent culture?
this is the place for you.

Do you like good communication? well depends on what division you find yourself in, sometimes good, sometimes bad.

bonus' seem to go to buying companies first.

Great place to work. Good people and good benefits. Lots of room for advancement. Regular pay raises. Down side is that its oil and gas so there would be layoffs once in a while.

As an entry level job, they teach you all you need to know before you are to be unsupervised in a position.
Their stance on safety is top priority, the first company i have ever worked for that stands firmly by Safety First.

Management were supportive, understanding and encouraged everyone to work together, creating an atmosphere of working with friends rather then team members

If ur a 1st year apprentice with no experience except a zoom boom ticket, guaranteed u will be a foreman in 6 months, any journeyman need not apply. Management is horrendous and unskilled
