Le personnel est compétent, professionnel et dévoué. Le salaire et les avantages sociaux sont bons. Le travail est stimulant. C'est un endroit qui aurait besoin de se mettre à jour au niveau des technologies. Côté administration, des efforts seraient à faire puisque il y a beaucoup de roulement de personnel. Le service à la clientèle est discutable et difficile à joindre.
Everything was excellent at site level but as soon as upper management came on site well... things went south pretty fast, heard they recently did a management swap so I’d give them another go. Oh and i hope you like Kearl, that’s the only site they have :)
This companies upper management has a lot to learn about the way clients expectations are in Canada, hopefully they will learn. Not sure how much work they need to lose to other contractors before they do learn or figure it out.
The management base in corporate Calgary have learnt they do not need to respond to emails or phone calls. This is
starting to develop with management in Fort McMurray
Fantasic company to work with. crew is more than willing to help the tool crib attendant with anthing that is needed. Crew is so friendly, helpful, professional while at the same time comical and fun loving.
Poor management at the very top followed by overworked and poor middle management. Pipelines throughout Alberta with poor preparation of equipment and no chemical disposal facilities at any of the sites. Most trucks drop their chemicals wherever as its up to the individual techs to deal with this. Environment Alberta/Canada should be made aware.
Equipment sent to jobs in poor condition and with no backups. Most of the pressure is on the tech to deal with.
Lots of projects at the moment.
Poor leadership, over complicated reporting system, poor equipment and support.
Worked here for years and contributed more than a lot of other people. Ended up being pushed out because if you are not with the "in" crowd, they treat you like garbage and get rid of you.
I would not advise anybody to work here unless you can't find work anywhere else.
Working for Mistras is stressful due to terrible management and micro managing. The managers will always want to be copied in every email and they always reply without reading the email putting the stress on the workers under them.
The managers micro manages and want you in the office by an agreed set schedule with no flexibility of coming early or a little later when the work is not time sensitive. Overtimes are unpaid and you are not allowed to bank your overtime, as a result many employees come at scheduled time and do not stay after schedule even if work is not finished.
Benefits are lack luster with only 2 weeks vacation and cannot be negotiated. You only receive 3 sick days per year. So do not get sick if you want to get paid otherwise you will need to use your 2 weeks vacation hours for payment.
When working for them be prepared to report to managers with no credentials and no experience out of the company.
Nepotism is outrageous in the company.
Unpaid Overtime, Poor Management, No Job Flexibility, 2 Weeks Vacation only
Management seemed proper and professional no favoritism among employees. Management management and leads also seemed to treat everybody the same. Everyone seemed awesome to work/ very safety conscious great work environment
The organization values and understands the importance of a work life balance coupled with quality, safety and maintaining positive working relationships with clients and co-workers.
Management was always available to give direction and assist whenever required.
Learning new inspection methods was also a very enjoyable part of working with Mistras Canada.
Labourer (Employé actuel) - Kearl Lake, AB - 10 février 2019
Poor management with harassment complaints not addressed. People just get fired when they bring up issues. USA run company with prejudice and nepotism. No security or advancement unless you are a robot that does not have an opinion.
Good shift cycle
Company safety is non existant only what the client dictates
Great company, learned a lot. Poor management and work culture. The hardest part of the job is not been recognized for your job. Being able to satisfy customers and ensuring good quality of work was nice.
