I worked at Cameco full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Insurance and benefits were good

Cons

Low salaries by industry standard. Little opportunity for advancement. Cameco basically trains employees for better jobs somewhere else.

Advice to Management

Management views government regulators with open disdain in company meetings. This is highly inappropriate and has led to complications with permitting and mining.

    I worked at Cameco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    well run organization, camps are great and you can get as involved as you want in activities. Over 50 percent First Nations will get first priority for everything, that's a given. Management style is very fair. Fun interesting place to work, with lots of experienced people willing to help show you the ropes. Best if you have SAP, although it's easy to learn (I didn't have it before I went there, but was very accustomed to CMMS). Excellent salary range with annual percentage bonus depending on performance, Cameco's profit margin, and position held. Fly in fly out is excellent and well planned Accommodations are comfortable and food is always good and plentiful.

    Cons

    Worst part was losing job by a phone call, when the media had already said we were being shut down (Rabbit Lake). They said they told the employees personally, but that's not true--I got a phone call from my cross shift. Emphasis on First Nations can be annoying if they get a job they aren't qualified for, and quit too soon.

    Advice to Management

    Hire First Nations people first only if they are fully qualified.
    If you plan to shut down, don't let employees hear about it on the MEDIA.
