Terrible place to work

Abused on a daily basis by lead hands and never saw or spoke to a foreman in the field. Terrible safety culture but who cares as long as you get your job done!

Apprentice Electrician Review under this oilfield company
2nd Year Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB6 June 2018
Working for this oilfield company was mostly a good experience. Lots of work available, with proper pay and benefits. This company seems to be one of the few that treats employees well. Long hours and overtime definitely helps to advance in the trade. Some downsides included: lacking the time to take business on the home front (long hours of work), sometimes getting filthy, and working in the the cold. Having said that, I would like to one day work for this company again, except in the winter.
Pros
Good pay, long hours and fast advancement in the trade. You are given tools to succed, and can decide to be home every night, or go to work camps.
Cons
Hard on relationships to be working long hours, especially if in isolation

An awesome workplace and staff workforce. Good management and company policy. Employees safety is the first priority and everyone's development are being in placed from the beginning. The most enjoyable part of the job is being in the group all the time. Working as a team member developed my personal skills.

Great place to work
Project Administrator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 August 2017
I was hired on as a Project Admin in Calgary. I was only able to work for a short period because my family unexpectedly relocated out of province. This was disappointing because I loved working there. What a great group of people, it was fun and the work was challenging. They were always flexible and accommodating. I would work there again in a heartbeat if I had the chance.

Trades orientated Company from ground up
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 August 2017
I found that the work environment was all Tradesmen throughout the company, even at the highest level. This is not seen very often. Tarpon is now merged with Warwick Industries and was very messy. Technology should be for the geeks, not tradesmen. Tech support was very different and not reliable. (lost backup) but people were great!

poor management
INSTRUMENTATION TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB29 May 2017
poor management and bad scheduling led to many people being laid off to pinch pennies. The only redemption the job had was the coworkers, or at least some of them tried to help you out.
