Good money, not a lot of meaningful work.
Mineral Land Student (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 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.
Pros
Good pay, good accomodations, friendly coworkers and management.
Cons
Not much meaningful work or opportunities to learn.

Field operator (Former Employee) –  Bonnyville, ab10 February 2017
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.

Great Place to work
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 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!

Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Horizon Site6 February 2017
Profit and production driven environment. Loss of production will probably mean an mid level employee will be let go. Uneven balance between fly in/fly out and locally based employees.

I learned a lot about oil and gas here, but was hired when the markets fell, and therefore was one of the first to go. Would liked to have had more experience here, but it was good.
