What to Expect When Working at Husky

Your work at Husky will be filled with learning and training opportunities. You will take ownership of important, relevant and challenging projects. If you work in Canada's Atlantic Region, you will complete a work term report outlining your projects and learning experiences. If you are an Engineering co-op or internship student in Calgary or Lloydminster, you will conclude your work term with a technical presentation to showcase the work you completed at Husky.

What to Expect in Calgary

When you arrive, you will attend a half-day orientation that will introduce you to Husky and your fellow students. After lunch, your supervisor will take you to your new workspace and you will start getting acquainted with programs, processes and your co-workers. Your supervisor will ensure that you are provided with the training necessary to do the job to your full potential.

What to Expect in Lloydminster

An orientation will be your initial introduction to working in Lloydminster, whether you are working in the office or out in the field. In addition to the overview of Husky information, you will receive the following training and testing:

  • Defensive Driving instruction
  • Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)
  • Lloydminster district overview
  • X-treme safety program overview

You will complete position-specific safety training that may include:

  • A two-hour individual driving assessment with the possibility of further training if required
  • Gas Detection
  • Hydrogen sulphide instruction
  • Fire extinguisher training
  • Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) computer-based training as required

Students working in the field will receive a site orientation and overview of safety equipment, muster points and emergency response plans. Since safety is of the utmost importance, you will be required to complete check sheets and training manuals before you will be allowed to work independently.

What to Expect in the Atlantic Region

You will attend an orientation session during your first week. The orientation provides an opportunity to meet other students, be introduced to managers and staff, and learn about Husky's business and policies.

You will normally have the opportunity to meet the departing student in your position to review hand-over materials and receive some training. You will also meet with your supervisor to review your role and expectations, and discuss your work term report.
