Safety Advisor Coker Rebuild (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 12 December 2013
Where to begin.
They have no safety culture. They hire inexperienced safety people with no experience in the oil sands or construction and they are bullied and ignored by management that couldn't care less about safety. Their philosophy is get it done as quickly and as cheaply as you can. Safety should be seen and not heard. Incidents are covered up or blame shifted to the workers instead of management who creates the problems to begin with.
Crane topples, major shutdown due to explosion and fire, and at least 3 people dead and at least 53 charges from OH&S. Their record speaks for itself and it's the worst in the Alberta oil sands.
The camp is horrible. Food is worse than the worst high school cafeteria you've ever eaten at. Rooms smell like urine. They bring in unqualified migrant and foreign workers who are cheap, easily exploited and sent packing if they complain about the abuse.
Avoid at all costs...
Great place to work if you don't care about your own personal safety
Challenging but very rewarding. Great place to work
Director of Recruitment and Staffing (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 September 2017
Great place to work. Management was very accepting of new ideas and allowed me to do my job. The compensation package offered by the company was outstanding. Delivering value is what the company strives for and if you delivered you are recognized and rewarded for your contributions.

Warehouse Technician/ Tool Crib- Horizon Oil Sands (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 19 July 2017
Working on 7 days on 7 days off, a great place to work and grow. Good management. A nice and safe place to work. the hardest part when you spend 10 years or more with the good company and you need a break. Its one of the most enjoyable place to work.
As with most of the oil and gas industry high stress and work load
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Alberta – 13 July 2017
Management is tough always pushing for more production, more hours, and more commitment from field operations. Morale is low in our area. Individuals being laid off without good reason. Probably looking at the bottom line. Looking to only have yes men/women. Have not been treated this badly in my entire career.
responsible for company truck, get to move to multiple locations through out the field.
Document Control Technician (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 July 2017
Nice place to work with a lot of nice people and amazing environment, the company makes huge efforts to have its employees happy and satisfied. I have had a great time and growned a lot as a professional and human being in my 5 years so far at this company
Engineer (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2017
CNRL is a good company to work for. Since the down turn in with the price of oil we never announced massive layoffs like our competitors. Lots of good people and some bad, just like many other places. Great company to invest in, always growing and improving.
Good place to work. Fair Treatment, Busy Workloads.
Surface Land Administrator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 June 2017
Good place to work, if you work hard you will be treated fairly, Can get very busy. The work culture is a bit classic in its management approach, so at times the work environment can be a little too serious.
Fair Treatment, if you work hard you will be noticed
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.
