Pros

Training was excellent and easy to understand, busy,fast paced yet always had time to sit back and enjoy co-workers company, lots of employee perks, great benefits, amazing co-workers, great management

Cons

Because of fluctuations of the oil and gas industry, many times there are lay offs and hiring freezes to prevent movement within the company. So sad to see great co-workers having to pack up their stuff to leave. Wish there was a way to keep all the good people.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work. Even though I was part of your lay offs when times got a little tough, it was a pleasure to work for such a great company. Always consider calling past employees if you have a position available again to see if they would like to come back to old or new positions. It would be easier to bring back an experienced employee than to have to go through training again. I am sure many people would love to come back especially if the reason for leaving was because of slow times.

    Even if PennWest does continue to grow and reach the size of Husky & Talisman and the others..don't lose the atmosphere! Keep hiring summer students
