Safety Administrator & Advisor (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – June 9, 2015
Although I enjoyed my time and the people I worked with at CNRL I felt there was very limited room for advancement. I learned a lot about oil sands safety in both a shut down and working plant. I particularly enjoyed working with my team and my contractors and interacting with the workers.
I did not work directly for Canadian Natural - they are only our Clients.
Senior Document Analyst (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – May 4, 2015
Eight years I have been working for Amec Foster Wheeler Oil and Gas, but with different Clients - Project based and it has been a very unique experience with each Client, which I enjoyed thoroughly and learnt a lot from each Project. Every day is a learning experience for me. Management is nice. Co-workers friendly. The hardest part is when the economy is facing recession, then there is a lot of negativity in the air. Enjoyed my job as the procedures were in place and it was very systematic.

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – April 24, 2015
I operated a cable or hydraulic shovel loading oil sand onto 400 ton haul trucks. We worked a 12 hour shift, alternating one week days and one week nights. Working night shift was the hardest part of the job, by the end of the week you were really tired, but we were very well paid to do it. My co-workers were the best, and I enjoyed the team work.
good pay, good camp, good team
night shift, long commute from saskatoon to edmonton to catch flight to
field operator (Current Employee) – St. Paul, AB – April 1, 2015
great place to work they take very good care of their employees but it is very tough to actually get passed the phase of being a contractor. just like any oilfield job there isn't quite the security of a career.
Mechanical Engineer Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – March 30, 2015
The balance between social life and work is the best thing about this company. The only complain I have is I wasn't hired back after they invested 12 months into me as a co-op student, but given the current oil market I am sure that is the biggest reason.
