Boring But Pays Well
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 March 2019
Beware of being a Greenhat, once hired. After 6 months You get a whitehat. If you dont have one, you're expected to be busy, even if you weren't trained on what to do if you're not in production. Very easy job most of the time, be prepared to be on your feet. They have a few set schedules, and mandatory overtime...when busy. It may seem like you live at work, but the paycheck makes up for it. I loved working here, but once the oil and gas industry is slowing, expect to be laid off. Most people leave and find something steady, and few stay behind and rake in the dough for the busy season.
Pros
Well paid.
Cons
Lay Offs.

Professional place to work
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Alberta6 February 2019
Tenaris is a global company leader on what they do. If you are committed, have high work ethics, and are willing to learn and walk the extra mile, Tenaris is a great company where to develop your career, and where you'll find many opportunities to become an expert on your job or move upwards or laterally. On the flip side, work-life balance could be a concern. Although it has presence in every continent and promotes a multicultural and diverse environment, there's still a big influence of its Latin American roots, which some times could be challenging if you are not familiar with that culture.
Pros
Recognition, Remuneration, Flexible working programs
Cons
Work-life balance, In general, slow decision making process

Improve all your skills working for Tenaris. Friendly coworkers that greet you with a smile. Safety is their top priority everyday. Planned events are another big thing they like doing with coworkers.

Yards Department, Operator (Former Employee) –  Sault Ste. Marie, ON7 January 2019
Uncertainty day to day if you will have a job is not the greatest. When there drilling oil then it's good. When there not then your going home. Layoffs happen fast and they happen routinely.
Pros

stay far far away.
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB29 August 2018
the benefits such as great salary, medical and dental plans, an RRSP plan, seem to be very appealing at first. I was hired as a CNC operator to train other people to do the job I was hired on for. I was in the job 6 months before the company decided to lay me off under a "use and abuse" mentatlity.
Pros
good medical and dental benefits, RRSP option
Cons
horrible management who look out for themselves, shift work, rotating of shifts, only hire one specific type of culture, supervisors and lead hands are cranky

Suppy Chain (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB16 July 2018
This is not a great place to work. Long hours, low pay, bad culture, horrible management, work life balance is non existent and HR will do nothing to help.

The benefits were the only good thing about them.

Stay away from this company and tell everyone you know as well.

Terrible place for apprentices
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Sault-Sainte-Marie, ON27 November 2017
They have no care for apprentices they don’t teach by showing or explaining just yelling. There union is a joke and do nothing for you. They’d rather hire people from over seas then locally, have and awful way of repairing and maintaining equipment and are just a terrible company to work for. On top of that half there tradesmen aren’t red seal yet are being payed their wages.
Pros
I don’t work there anymore
Cons
There unorganized slim to non licensed tradesmen

A day on the job

Pros

sometimes no direction

Student (Former Employee) –  Sault-Sainte-Marie, ON6 July 2017
Individuals in the office definitely get all the perks - and don't seem to know much about what goes on elsewhere. The workers outside the office are great, hardworking people.

Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB6 July 2017
Depending on what department you're in, there are some amazing people there - although, departments don't seem to want to work together or share information.
Fantastic Benefits!
