I enjoyed the work itself. The area I worked in was not supported by the manager whatsoever. Expenses were not reimbursed in a timely manner. Training was non existent. The regional manager never responded to emails. Raises were late or not there at all.
No support or leadership
Worked for the company for a number of years in a remote area. In comparison to neighbouring companies they paid minimum wage for a highly stressful job. The company took every opportunity it could to strip rights and conditions from its workers. When I confronted them about their unethical nature of introducing policy changes that affect the lifestyle of their employees without proper discussion, they were ignorant and unconcerned.
very tough working environment but a very fun place to work. You are left alone for 10 or more hours a day to run your site and keep on top of your tasks. The only real negative about the job was the management, no matter how well of a job you do there was always something wrong, and on a couple of jobs i insisted that there was faulty equipment that kept me from completing my job and was yelled at by all managers to just get it done. until i asked them to write off on it so when something went bad they were on the hook not me. They do everything to put the job first, all the good and bad that comes with that kind of mentality.
It was a good company to work for. There were opportunities to learn various skills and equipment. If only the pay raise was timely and available it is a good company.
Need timely pay raise.
The management is horrendously inadequate and favoritism runs all the way to the top. They do not give pay raises, won't offer full time to employees, and they pick and choose who gets benefits. There also is 0 room for advancement within the company. It's a depressing organization that really could not care less about a single one of its employees and doesn't care about losing model employees.
Poor management means a lot of the time you can do what you want
Poor management, no room for advancement, poor wages, toxic environment
I've worked with sgs for 19yrs and 11mos but sadly it came to an end because loss of contract with a local power plant due to lack of production but if i ever get the chance to work for sgs again i would go in a heartbeat its a great company to work for and the people was great
learn alot about the industry
I worked for SGS in the oil sands, the project we were working on was not that bad, but for some reason SGS complicated everything. They are a very cheap company, barely supply you with the proper PPE. They do not hire people fit for the job, half of the people on my crew could not lift what they were required to. so this led to half of the crew puling the weight for the useless people. SGS hired 12 people on my crew for the same position and paid us all differently, and some of the worst workers were making the most money.. just very backwards in my opinion. Also, SGS has this funny thing about them; when you work hard and do your job well, you get to do everyone else's job as well. It was very frustrating to work for them considering they did nothing to solve any of the problems I mentioned above. I will never work for them again.
Cheap, Clueless and careless management.
controlling manifold and pumping systems, gauging or testing oil in storage tanks, or regulating the flow of oil into pipelines. Other tasks include dock rounds, line handling, small maintenance and repairs, permit writing, and ship-shore pre-transfer conferences with associated paperwork.
