There's little respect or support for new hires. They do talk about making things better for young/new crop advisors but nothing comes from their talks. They don't really care about a work-life balance and use "when farmers are going, we are going" as a reason for making you work upwards of 18 hour days (during busy season, slow season is just hectic because of the impossible metrics they put on you but the days are short).
Salary is absolute garbage and varies from branch to branch. There is no standard starting wage so it's up to the manager's discretion as to how poorly they will pay you. The benefits are amazing though.
I am happy to work here, got experience to see how a chemical processing plank looks like. Worked here for a month of shutdown program. Gained knowledge on importance of safety and awareness when working in the chemical equipment.

Great place to start out in the industry, Learn a lot as they provide tons of training throughout first year of employment and career. Fast Paced and long hours during peak seasons, great opportunity for OT. Very Slow in winter months.
I am having a great experience working here. Team members are all willing to help and management provides great leadership Help desk team are extremely helpful and different teams get out of their way to help each other.

They will use you for everything they can. Promise you everything and give you nothing. At the facility I worked at the best part is the fact that half the people are under the influence of something so no one gives a crapIt’s very competitive for what the job entailed. Yet being the fastest or most durable and versatile employee gets you nothing. Your pay and job title will never change. Despite promises to do so
I really enjoy working for nutrien they have a good work environment. Have no problem explaining things to a person, very flexible if you need time off. I have enjoyed working for both medicine hat branch and bow island branch.
Management is a bunch of yes men. Only got their positions because they are buddies with upper management. They preach safety but then in the same breath say cost per tonne is too high and that’s all their priority is. Big company that only cares about dollars and their safety record shows
