Company Culture

Unique concept

Support from management

Chain of command up through crew chief.

Teamwork

Sometimes a dud shows up assigned to your team to cover vacationing personnel but work together or risk getting injured.

Freedom to work independently

Stand watch alone with a lot of responsibility.

Internal Communication

Continued training is key to successful operations.

Gender Equality

As long as they are physically capable of running and catching a moving rope they are welcome.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older workers are usually encouraged to advance to crew chief positions.

Career Development

As long as you apply yourself the opportunities are there.

Overall compensation for your work

It is a trade-off for travel and outdoor work. Per diem compensation is not tied to location so high cost areas involve loss of compensation.

Office / Work Environment

It is outdoor work in various weather.

Environmental Friendliness

They do their best but have to work with various fuels and portable generators as part of operations.

Work-Life Balance

Off time is a great opportunity to explore great locations.

Company Image

High visibility is countered by trade secrecy. The image is for effect.

Job Security

As long as you perform your duties and stay drug free there is little reduction in personnel.

Handicapped Accessibility

Job requirements are to be healthy and able to run.

Workplace Safety

Plenty of training and safety in place for such a highly dangerous occupation.

Challenging Work

Positive.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Tie per diem compensation to government sliding scale to offset periods of higher than normal costs for away expenses in Canada or major cities in US.

What I like about the company

Fantastic travel opportunity. Away from home expenses reimbursed.

What I dislike about the company

Difficult to transfer without crew chief recommendation. Periods of very hard labor balanced by many hours or days of inactivity.
