Due to the nature of the business, don't expect job security. They are on par with other construction companies.
As in all companies, cliques exist within Stuart Olson; management was somewhat chaotic due to instability in the construction market. There are some really good people within the organization. Overall they are a good company to work with.

Great place to work
I worked at Stuart Olson for about two and half years. I would still be there but, the economy forced them to shut down the division I was working in. They did everything that said they going to do. Most people who work there are there 10 plus years. I would recommend them for sure. Just be aware that it is construction and if it's slow lay offs can happen. It's the nature of the industry.

Great people to work with
Worked with a variety of people on the site. Learned how to write a code of practice for workplace materials. Management was fun to work for/with. Cleaned up and extended their filing system.

Don't follow through on promises
Great place to work as long as you fit in with upper management. They talk a good game, but don't hold up on their end. Full of empty promises. Not enjoyable.

Stuart Olson is okay
Management is losing sight of their people, they do not stay true to their mission statement. If you are a male working in the construction industry you will enjoy it here.

Not super
The skilled trades are completely ignored and there is very poor communication within the company between different affiliates. They can’t run a job without 60% management and then make the workers on the ground rush to get the job done, causing poor craftsmanship and a real disdain for the job. Unskilled workers on the ground that do nothing are treated like the company would fall apart without them

BIM/VDC Coordinator role for Stuartolson
I once held this role many years ago (8 of 9) and was paid over 120k per annum for this BIM role. Make certain that you don't ask for less. It is not a demanding role at all and the ppl are pleasant enough, but if you didn't know you might not ask for this much. Make certain that you are well paid at least at 140k per annum. Don't ask for less. Cheers, anon.

I was blind sided in thinking I was coming to a company where I could achieve advancement and growth.
I thought Stuart Olson was a company of integrity and professionalism and that i had the potential opportunity to achieve growth and sustainability within my position in this area. I have only been here for 3 short months to find out that the company has turned its back on our professional team of leaders here in the Southeast corner of Estevan. Unfortunately for our team, we will all have to relocate to new jobs. In today's economic crisis, this will not be an easy task for any of us here. I am very disappointed in this company and their decisions made. I only rate Management 5 stars pertaining to my manager here in Estevan. I am here until October 8th so that we as a team can fulfill our duties finishing our current work for the amazing oil companies we are working for including Vermilion, Crescent Point, Ridgeback, TransGas, Enerplus and TEML.
Pros
Excellent team in Estevan
Cons
I was happy working long hours, very very dissatisfied with the mere 3 months given to show our true potential as a team

Stuart Olson is all about the share holders
The share holders come first and foremost the employees are a distant second in importance and they are constantly trying to reinvent the wheel when it comes to safety and procedures! The work environment is stressful and not a pleasant place to work

Great place to develop new skills and experience.
Great local culture amongst the working class hero's which populate this company. Many opportunities to learn new skills and hone practices. Management is struggling to adjust to changes in the Canadian economy. Innovation is a strong force from within, seeking to differentiate in a crowded and competitive market. Share price has fallen in recent years.
