Mis-leading
Safety Watch (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 January 2018
Most employees and companies dont have a respectful outlook at united, Contractors feel the employees dont know enough to give demands. The employees tend to know something but a vast majority just drift by passing the time..But audits keep them in check.

Money can be ok, I was clearing 1k every 6days. Camp life was alright at the loction I was at.
Cons
Favoritism could be in affect.

Safety Watch-Lead hand (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB7 December 2017
Too many thing to list. When you work in the field they give you oiles of meaningless paperwork.to fill out. When you add up everything they want you to do it equivilates to $10 an hour.

Safety Equipment Technician , QAQAC (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB3 December 2017
At this workplace each day was different it was never the same routine . I was travelling all over Alberta . I was taking care of all kind of safety devices and equipments , ( distribution , inventory, quality control , calibration , generating Invoices) . The hardest part was to be away from home at all time without fix schedule . once I was away for 3 months without coming home until the end of the project . I enjoyed the people that I worked with .
Pros
good pay, good people
Cons
away from home, no fix schedule

It is ok as a jumping stone to get into the patch
Safety Officer (Current Employee) –  Airdrie, AB19 December 2016
I did enjoyed working part time and some crews were really good
and some just so so.
Not enough hours to make a living...
Worked long hours and days with little time off and management
changes safety to keep clients even when it is not safe for us
to enter or do work.
Will not use all the experience of people to make things easier
to do job....people with PHD,masters degrees,process operators
have lots of ideas but will not use them...
Pros
Not long stints to work on jobs could not stand full time...
Cons
No promises on any hours or days worked..
