Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Over the passed few years working for Synterra I have gained a lot of experience in the security field and have grown myself as a person doing this job. I have been given tools to work independently and efficient. Along with any security position there is always a bit of down time but of course you learn to keep busy. I really enjoy my position at Synterra. Management has been very good with helping others get their security licenses and of course give them a shot. Working for Synterra can be rewarding and I would recommend you give it a try.

Pros

Excellent wages, good hours

Cons

Management doesn’t visit often enough

Not a place to work

Basically they will place you in a mine or refinery. Company should provide more information about the working conditions and atmosphere that people have to deal with before giving your resume or personal information to such company which is situated somewhere in North but looking for someone in East or South.

Pros

I wish there was atleast 1

Cons

Everything

Terrible Work Atmosphere

Management in this company is more worried about themselves than issues on their sites. Expect people to do things not in their job scope for the pay they give others like supervisors that dont supervise. If you enjoy busting your butt while you watch others sleep on the job, not do their duties this is the place for you

Pros

Good exercise if you actually take tour job seriously

Excellent company to work for

Working for Synterra Security Solutions has been a great experience. They definitely hold their employees to a higher standard, and I wouldn't want to work for a company that didn't. Working in remote locations is not an ordinary Security gig. We don't sit around watching CCTV all day, and complete a few patrols here and there. It's physically demanding, and I've seen a lot of employees come and go because it's not what they expect. "It's too much work." If you put in the effort, you will be recognized and rewarded. If you want to be lazy and complain about everything, then move on to a Security gig that you can sit on your butt all day and collect a minimum wage paycheck.

Pros

Excellent opportunity for advancement

It's great for money but they treat you as though you are expendable

The contract with my old company had switched with them. I worked at Detour and they gave us a cheaper quality coat than the ones we had on the previous contract. I reported to the head supervisor of SYNTERRA about this, even gave a comparison between the two, all he really had to say was "Well I guess everyone reacts differently in cold weather". 3 days after that it was right after my shift on the day I needed to return home. I get a call from them and they told me to pack up my things, go and don't come back. I was devastated by this, to only have worked so hard in that mine to only be thrown away like common Trash. To anyone else who is thinking about applying for them Don't even BOTHER! it's best to wait out their contract until a better company with ACTUAL moral value takes over.

Pros

Fun to work out at Detour

Cons

Poor treatment of staff

Treat unfairly

Other than management being poorly, instad of dealing with issue that happen, they let you go! I was treated very poorly, I went beyond my duties, but I was the one in wrong! They have no respect. People like myself take their job seriously! I think they are the worse company out there!

Pros

N/l

Cons

Don’t treat people fairly

Management

Management treats unfairly and will fire or lay you off for inquiring about your employment rights. Management will deny that they are laying you off/ firing you because of that and will tell you that they don't have any other position for you which is a total lie.
