Bad culture, poor management, stressful atmosphere. Union is in bed with management and supervisor role is a revolving door position. If your good at your job, might as well look for another one because the operations manager cannot have compition and WILL get rid of you, especially if you go after her drunk hourly husband for not doing his job.
Management doesn't listen to the new members of the crew. They have members that have been in the fold for a few years and have found a way to convince the management to buy into their poor decisions. Poor workmanship and laziness is normal and any efforts to provide better is frowned upon. Some quality individuals work there, unfortunately the bad outweigh the good.
Team offers great benefits, the opportunity for overtime, great opportunities for advancement and learning. With a great pay check. But for those looking at NDT, be prepared for long hours, working out of town, and being away from loved ones sometimes for a long period of time.
Made up of mostly good people, but they suffer from a lack of information flow to the people who will be affected by it in their non work life. On the flip side they are care about what happens while on the job, safety and all that goes with it.
Start with Safety meeting and discussion. Assignment of work and vessel. deciding what is most important. Get enter permits at Operator offices and directions if needed.Visit area and check for hole watch and entry permit.
Enter unit and do inspection of Refractory linings and take pictures as needed.
Write up Inspection reports and discuss with supervisor!
Continue as needed
Good place to work, steady hours, not the safest of places as it's at National Steel Car located in Hamilton, Ontario but other than that I had a great time working there, people were excellent, lots of food in the vending machines to buy that tasted great, learned quite a bit about how paint booths work or who they're made by/for all around canada, hardest part of the job was a supervisor that had an alcohol problem, slept most of the time on the job other than that the most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to talk while you work, I believe that contributes to people liking their job, hours, and even pay even if it's only a few dollars above minimum wage.
Extremely badly managed unfair treatment, favouritism and Unprofessional. There is a Unobtainable expectation for some employees while others have no nothing to do or anything that is expected of them. Management was and is always hired within and have no experience in the positions they fill and do not in any way follow the hand books that everyone is expected to follow. While they do as they please no matter how wrong it is
Working outdoors, can be very very cold.
Employees are good people.
Management is overall pretty good.
Some managers are great to work for and obviously care about the employees
Some managers are only profit driven so they tend to treat the employees as just a tool from the toolbox.
Same office politics as anywhere else.
I only worked for Team for a short while during the maintenance turnaround. WE had a good group of experienced guys that shared the work and completed all the projects and turnaround on time with no issues.
good company to work for but I didn't get lucky when I did work for them the oil on stock market went down to her lowest price which was 29$ a barrel of oil so they decided to lay off half of the crew but other that it's good company.
working for team was great, I came to the company pretty young but they were quick to acknowledge that I was a good worker and would be a good representative for the company. Putting me in charge of high priority jobs over more experienced workers who might not have the drive to get the job done
