Production Specialist, Peace River, AB - 20 April 2018
Shell has been the best company I've worked for to date. I most enjoyed that I was challenged and allowed to grow independently, held accountable when required, and provided a terrific work-life balance which it promoted and encouraged. Shell's environmental stewardship is very well placed in an industry so often scrutinized by the public, and working in the front lines of operations I witnessed the company's integrity and openness. I learned a great deal about myself and my values, and felt encouraged to share and show those values in my day to day activities, projects which I lead or provided advice to, and my interactions with peers and leaders. I experienced that they placed a lot of value in their employees, providing the with training and support, both on and off the job. As with most technical professional jobs, it came with long hours when needed, deadline stresses and demanding answers to very costly problems. But there is good compensation for those efforts both monetarily and with time and flexibility.
