Production technician class 1 (Current Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 11 September 2018
Tenaris is a good place to work if you don't like working hard , they have a good schedule, don't have much opportunity for over time. they have a shut down every summer and they lay off all new employees
Labourer (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 29 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.
good medical and dental benefits, RRSP option
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
Millwright (Current Employee) – Sault-Sainte-Marie, ON – 27 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.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 19 April 2017
It's dirty, it's hot, and if you aren't friends with someone you aren't going anywhere. The union is atrocious, but what can you expect when someone who gets caught selling drugs at work becomes the president. The pay cheque is decent, while it lasts.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 March 2017
After 2+ years of what the GM in Canada calls "terrible" (referring to restructuring, plant closures and a very difficult downturn in the Oil and Gas industry), Tenaris is looking brighter with the introduction of Rig Direct, an industry game changing full cycle manufacture through to delivery of tubes and pipes directly to rig sites.
There had been plant closures and lay offs the past couple of years which is where some of the disgruntled employees are on this review site. However, those who have remained, have had long tenures here of 5 through to 30+ years, and work hard.
Every job is what you make it; Tenaris is on the upswing with a more upbeat staff, and some new fresh faces. The Prudential site was announced to be reopening in July here in Calgary. The AlgomaTubes site in Sault Ste. Marie reopened last fall.
Productive, high space environment in relatively safe setting with rotating work-shift.
Machinist group-leader, C.N.C. Programmer, (Former Employee) – 8919 Barlow Tr. S.E. Calgary, Alberta – 27 January 2017
Tenaris Prudential is offering an integrated work, job-pool, with good wage and benefits. It is an oil and gas pipe-manufacturing facility. The main operation is in a systematic production line setting, with two or three rotating shifts, including with service-maintenance. The maintenance-machine shop operation was on two shift rotation. The interactive communication has lots of opportunities to improve and grow. The hourly-unionised mentality and the salary-management mentality was challenged with broken communication. Without unilateral approach and collective teamwork, the work-effort remains in stagnation. All operations are ceased since 2015, and there is hope for fresh and better start. Never the less going forward in the new industrial world, the team-work is essentially emphasised. With good input and good effort, Tenaris Prudential-Steel can be a good option to be explored for work. It offers many opportunities to grow and learn. The team work matters and brings success in the new industrial world.
Work uniforms, footwear and safety equipments are provided.
Rotating work-shift and accountability is part of this large operation.
Anything (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 January 2017
This company doesn't care too much about their employees. They had even let people go just before x-mas. If you ever work for these people, be very careful because you can loose your job just as fast as you get it. Can't trust them because a lot of back door dealing is done.
Tension, stress, poor management, not a fun place to work
Industrial Electrician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 December 2016
When you are at work, looks like everything you are working in a hurry. All you learn is finish the work shift and pass to the next shift. Poor management, they do not know what they are doing. everyone do not want to take response, the want to release to their problem to the others, The hardest part is no one will help you, it all your problems! The most good thing is time to go home.
