    It's very comprehensive and flexible. You can choose from several options and adjust it according to your spouse's plan.

Comprehensive but not competitive OIL & Gas which provide higher bonuses, more vacation days, more flex days, better insurance companies.

Benefits are generous. Holiday time and ITO (corporate days off, aligned with holidays and long weekends ) are very good.

Former Maintenance Lead Hand in Wabamun, Alberta

The cut to the pension was the last straw for myself. The best thing about working there was it was fairly safe. A good work permit system that didn't over do it.

the combinations for the various health providers are not grouped well, so you get limited coverage on common services (e.g. chiropractic, massage and physio all grouped together), so you only end up having a few visits covered before you run out of coverage.

Very good at balancing professional life and personal life. The supervisors are always making sure you don't overlook your personal life. Very empathetic environment.
