You might get lucky and work for a decent supervisor in some small faction of this big company, but overall leadership at CNRL is unprofessional and arrogant. They tend to not respect those who work beneath them. The culture suffers major trust issues. It's a sweat shop where people's needs always come last.

THE WORST DEPT IS THE MINE TRAINING DEPT!!

Excessive punitive action for minor infractions. There have been numerous mass exoduses from the Mine group in the past; people just get fed up with the treatment and seek work at other mines in the Ft Mac area that treat their employees better. – less
