Safety Oriented Company

Was a good company before but to much politics inside.Loyalty and your job performance doesn’t count here.If you not go along with the group of politicians just prepare when off season comes they will lay you off and keep their good friends around.

Pros

Good pay and benefits l.

Cons

Oil and gas lay off just around the corner.

Shawcor is a great place to work, with lots of smart and interesting people. Safety is the top priority, so be prepared to work smart and safe. The culture is excellent, for example: BBQ lunches on Fridays and rewards for working hard.

Pros

Good salary, good people.

Cons

Getting laid off

Flexible work environment, good salary & commissions.

Good solid company with strong and engaged management team. There is an opportunity for learning and development everyday. Projects in the Petroleum, Water & Wastewater sectors all have their own unique challenges. Sales department has a great team culture.

Pros

Travel, flexible work schedule...

Cons

medium pay scales...

Job culture

Culture based company with very nice employees, when I was there.

When I worked there, it was a good place to work. The oil downturn and the shutdown of a project, because of it, was why I was laid-off. The warning signs were there and they tried to keep us on for as long as possible.Since I have been gone, they merged with another company that took over and laid-off people that were there long before I started, so it is likely not the company I remember.

Pros

Project Managers were very organized and understanding, if you kept them in the loop.

Cons

New company basically runs it now and I have heard bad things.

Short staffed and stressful

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 place

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.

Fun place to work

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

garbage

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.

Immature processes and not interest to improve them

I worked at ZCL for one year. During this year, i did not feel that i was a member of the team. Tons of process and system improvement opportunities but their management and the team is not willing to change anything. I was happy to leave this place.

Horrible management

No communication. Not given the proper tools for the job. One gets very little information to complete jobs properly. The higher ups criticize, while giving very little guidance.
