I currently work for Flint at MEG Christina Lake and agree that communication / planning is very poor. I have found this to be the case with Flint the previous two time I have worked for them. Flint was bought by URS last year and I have been told that URS has been observing management, operations and that "restructuring" of management from top to bottom will begin in the next 8 to 12 months.

After nearly 30 years in theElectrical trade I made the mistake of working for URS Flint. The recruiter tells you one thing, Then once your on the job site management changes their tune. We didn't,t get paid nearly the right amount for the first week and didn't get pay stubs. When one of the crew sent an email asking about the issue he was fired on the spot. An Electrician on the opposite shift raised a safety concern and was told he was going home, fired. The rest of the crew was laid off after the second shift. I still can't believe the 19th century mentality of this company. Get everything in writting with these clowns. but the best advice is stay away from this company.

The people running the Surmont Flint job don't have clue how to get people to work together, they are only concerned with their own deal and how to further their mediocr career. They lie to get people on the job and then fall short with the real situation. No Benifits for welders , low wage for helpers. It's a poorly run show!
