Very friendly environment
QA Administration Clerk (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON24 juillet 2019
In my 10 years of job experience with different industries, i only had the pleasure of working for SGS for a three month paid contract and 2 months Co-Op prior. I literally have not worked with a better team whom they support each other and extremely friendly, loving and reward each other for performing a job well done. Very appreciative and of course I am talking about my experience at the Vipond location with in Mississauga.

Negative work environment with extremely poor management
TERMINAL OPERATOR/BARGE COORDINATOR (Employé actuel) –  Cobble Hill, BC19 juillet 2019
Decent starting wage. Poor benefits. If you enjoy doing the same thing over, over, every day then come work here.

A poorly trained monkey could do this job. I guess it will only be a matter of time before a poorly trained robot will be doing it.
Points positifs
Decent wage, RRSP package
Points négatifs
Poor benefits, negative work environment

Good Place to Work
Procurement Assistant (Ancien employé) –  Lakefield, ON11 juillet 2019
Work hours were good and environment was pleasant. Colleagues were great to work with. Offsite manager not so great. Little flexibility for work/life balance with a young family.

Great place to work, if you don't mind actually working
Loader (Ancien employé) –  Red Deer2 juillet 2019
If you plan on working for SGS, you need to know a few things. You are expected to actually work when there is work to do. You can be working in all types of weather, as 90% of the work takes place outside. There is no stopping for cold, or rain, or heat, and the company will supply you with all the appropriate clothing to facilitate this. That being said, the pay is really good, there is ample overtime for those who will actually come in for it, and the atmosphere and culture is excellent. The only issue I have is leadership that refuses to listen to, or even consult the people who are directly impacted by their operational decisions. Otherwise, a great place to work. Very safety orientated.
Points positifs
Great way to earn a living
Points négatifs
Leadership needs to listen to the people actually doing the job more

Terrible experience, overworked and management sucked
Marine Surveyor (Ancien employé) –  Point Tupper, NS21 juin 2019
Too much nepotism.

The manager had his wife, two daughters, sister-in-law, girlfriend and several friends working for him.

My direct supervisor was a womanizing drunk!

My colleagues were backstabbing their way to the top.

The manager had a new office built on site by a local contractor and at the same time coincidentally he had a $50,000 pool put in his backyard. Convenient, oh ya. What a thief.

Bad company to work for!
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs
Long hours and if you were not a relative, you were blamed for everything that went wrong and given credit for nothing.

Switchmen (Ancien employé) –  Red Deer, AB17 mai 2019

Management is always changing, which means direction and focus also changes. Very hard to secure market or be known by major players to be awarded work.
Points positifs

Not a place to grow or advance your career
Rail car loader (Ancien employé) –  Nanticoke, ON2 avril 2019
Worked at the nanticoke facility and learned a bit about rail car fundamentals. Most coworkers were great to work with. Management is a total joke and they bring in people with no rail skills to run it. Payroll can never seem to get the pays right. No positive reinforcement,only negative. Not much room to advance in jobs and the wage is to low for the responsibility that the loaders have. Dealing with highly volatile products for low pay doesn’t cut it. They will hire anyone as long as you can pass a drug test lol. Higher wages and better management would keep guys around more but that won’t happen unless sgs gets off that site.
Points positifs
5 on 5 off schedule isn’t to bad. Decent coworkers
Points négatifs
Low pay. Poor management. Low morale

Very interesting place to work in due to changing circumstances.
Bird & Wildlife Services Technician (Ancien employé) –  Fort McMurray, AB21 mars 2019
This company is great to work in, the benefits that they offer is amazing. They also have a good pay rate. It was just hard to be working alone the whole day as you only get to see your co-workers during lunch. It is interesting every day as you don't know what to expect everyday specially in the position I worked in. Co-workers were really great to work with too. Management was strict but at the same time easy to get a long with.

Bad management. People snitch to climb the ladder
Plant terminal operator (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB20 mars 2019
Horrible management, don’t defend you if anything happens. Always try to blame the worker even if it’s equipments fault. They care more about numbers then safety. Main site lead doesn’t think before he speaks you can work 60overtims hours a week and be 5mins late one day and you will get suspended
Co-workers will snitch on you to try and gain advancement. Culture gets worse and worse there . Wouldn’t recommend working there
Points négatifs
Expects the world from you with nothing in return

Great Company, Poor Managent Support
Former Employee (Ancien employé) –  Canada18 mars 2019
Management provides no support to junior managers or employees. Focus is on making money and safety takes a backseat to profit.

For such a large company, there is no uniformity to overall internal workings and results in a large turn over rate.

Great teams and people in the field. Shared knowledge and skills.
Points positifs
Opportunity for advancement
Points négatifs
Focus on revenue and not those who earn that revenue

Excellent peers and colleagues
Resource Geologist QP (Ancien employé) –  Boisbriand, QC6 février 2019
I loved working for SGS, there is an excellent and diverse pool of talent, it is great. I have met so many life long friend and have learned so much from the amazing people at that amazing company.

The salary was really the baseline of industry standard, or slightly less.

It seemed they often had wish lists with no clear road-map for success, which could be frustrating. But they did have enthusiasm and ambition.

Over the years they really tried to inspire stronger communication and collaboration between businesses, offices, etc, ... I think it is a work in progress still but a welcome one.

I would work there again.
Points positifs
Excellent people, lots of learning opportunities
Points négatifs
If you are not part of the core business you will feel it

Materials Technologist
Materials Technologist (Ancien employé) –  Alberta5 octobre 2018
Good place for maybe a year or two. Will provide good experience however it is limited.

Management treats people with no respect. HR does nothing for employees.

They will nickel and dime you on anything and everything.

Turn over rate is very high as the salary is garbage. There is no moral and nothing is being to do fix the problem, as mentioned before HR is doing nothing and doesn't seem to care.

If you value your mental health avoid at all costs. If you like being treated like garbage and a number this is the place for you.
Points positifs
Limited good experience

Dedicated staff with a high value to ethics and customer service
Lead, External Quality Systems (Employé actuel) –  4027, 14th street S.E. Calgary Alberta2 octobre 2018
In the time that I have been working for SGS, I have found that there is an unsurpassed drive to serve their clients to the best of their abilities given the amount of staff and management restrictions put onto the teams.
SGS caters to a special niche within the pressure equipment industry that ensures that this part of the construction industry is equipped with the knowledge and informational tools required to succeed in safely constructing all of the various areas in the pressure equipment industry. I am very proud to have contributed to this organizations success to date.
Points positifs
Birthday cake celebrations, summer BBQ's

Bad
Shipping and Receiving (Ancien employé) –  Cochrane, ON18 août 2018
Worst work environment I have ever worked in. No leadership or proper training. Wages do not do justice to the amount and type of work you do. Schedual hours are way too long for the type of manual work you do.
Points positifs
FREE BBQ
Points négatifs
EXTREMELY POURLY MANAGED
