Was good except for the amount of brown nosing and butt kissing you need to do to keep your job. You can be a top performer but if you're not buddy buddy with your boss, you're not going anywhere. Very clicky.

Poor working environment, no support from management, only concerned with the bottom line and not their people. Management has no connection with the workers, offers little support and doesn't remember how to spell names.

Due to oil slowdown, job security has really dropped. Otherwise no issues with company as a whole. Decent management, new building (Acheson), strong safety culture, good team to work with.

Terrible management. They don't care about the workers because they have a very quick turnover with new temps. They also force overtime when orders are due.

Title says it all.

Pay:

I was hired at the start of 2016 as a service technician, or so I thought. I was hired to do the work of a service technician, but was being paid as a service worker. I spent the next 15 months fighting to get a raise/promotion to the level I should have been. I did eventually get a proper raise after cornering one of the bosses in the lunch room, and after they tried to give me a low raise. Never got any back pay either. There's 10k I'll never see. I got a Cost of Living increase this year which really didn't cover anything.


Opportunity:

I never moved beyond service tech after 3 years. I was told there would be a service manager when I was hired, which was never true. I asked about a Lead Tech role, but they also did away with that position. At one point they had a Temp agency hire some people for us, so we could use them instead of hiring direct. One guy worked for 7 months as a temp before getting hired. That was only after someone else quit, Put him on probation after that as well. Never heard of such a practice before.



Training:

Basically I worked by myself from the first day, and pretty much for the next 18 months. The guy that was supposed to be training me was pretty lazy and just hid in the office most of the time. Most of the job was me just figuring it out, and no real idea if I was doing it correctly or not. Very little feedback from my boss if I was doing it correctly or not.


Work:

The job varies from easy to crazy. The first year was pretty chill. I worked on my own at my own pace, but I'd frequently had to work excessively

Unless you enjoy being micromanaged and expected to take on a huge workload with no appreciation, I suggest you look elsewhere. Upper management will never help out the little guys, and HR is 100% useless. Even if you put in multiple calls, they will never actually do anything to help you.
Cons
Terrible management, workload is far too heavy, financials are horrendous & AR is out of control.

When I went to work for William Scotsman it was my dream job. I was in a supervisory position in the cleaning department. It was an awesome place to work and I was hoping to end my working career there. Sadly the company went another direction.
Pros
free barbaques lunches
Cons
tight deadlines

Typically travelled a lot to Ft. McMurray to keep a workforce lodge we acquired full of workers and trades who worked in the area south of Ft.McMurray towards Conklin.
Management was indecisive about the direction they wanted to go with workforce housing in Canada. Ultimately, they shut down the division and I was laid off with the downturn in oil and gas. Continuous management change at all levels.

The people I worked with, outside of management, were great. The hardest part was the long hours, early morning travel to late evening travelling on dangerous highways in Northern Alberta.
Pros
Good salary and commission structure
Cons
Long hours

I started in this position when it was disorganized. i got it to function and organized it. Sadly with the economy and productions levels it had to be moved to the states.
