Coordinator Roevin Technical People (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 14 May 2014
A typical day at work would be to cancel forwarding the phones, then gather any paperwork that needs to be completed for the day before the office opens. Once opened then it is answering telephone enquiries, tenant concerns and updating inventory and reports throughout the day. If needed, go out and pick up inventory items towards the end of the day. Complete cost code processing for invoices that come in and update lead hand daily on any new requirements or changes to the area. I have learned that to stay on top of the bursts of activity with a temporary accommodations site you would have to be prepared ahead of time and have an order or process to get all the information prepared correctly and in time. Management is a gem to work with. They provide assistance when needed and can go forward and present any ideas or projections that you think would be necessary to improve this project. The hardest part of the job is to locate where all the past files are to know how to process everything in the same manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is able to communicate with the different tenants that come through the door and able to accommodate their needs as best I can.
Excellent work environment that promotes learning to those with initiative
Electrical Engineering Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Fort Mackay, AB – 28 April 2017
CNRL is a great place to work to learn more about the oil sands manufacturing industry. The people are very welcoming and eager to help inexperienced workers. Working in the field is a great opportunity to experience construction firsthand.
Gas well Operator (Former Employee) – Youngstown, AB – 8 April 2017
As Canadian Natural grows, it buys more and more companies. Gaining new people from bigger companies. They amount of high end talent that enters the company high up. Leaves little opportunity to advance as a young talent. They wages we also extremely low compared to peers working the same job in the same area for other companies.

Mineral Land Student (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 March 2017
In my time with CNRL I reviewed and reorganized files for the mineral land department. There was not much deviation from this task. It was easy to lose motivation, and although the management was friendly they did not assign much work.
Good pay, good accomodations, friendly coworkers and management.
Not much meaningful work or opportunities to learn.

Learned quite a bit with Cnrl. They are very informative and are very hands on. Very good company to build a career with. Also working with Canadian natural, it's a great place to work independently. And builds self motivation skills.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 February 2017
great place to work. Management is fair for the most part. No major issues with anything or anyone. Company runs a tight ship financially which at times sucks bucks but is very appreciated during the tough economic times. CNRL has not laid off staff during these economic times due to how management watches spending. A+ for that!
