Great people and culture, but shaky future with O&G price influence
Operations Excellence Specialist, Field Based (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 30 April 2017
Great people to work with! Interesting work, challenging and rewarding. I worked in the field at Surmont, and it was the best place I have ever worked in my entire career. Regrettably, many people have been laid off during the downturn in O&G prices.
HSE Advisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 April 2017
If I needed work I would go back to this company, there was not much in the way for support from the top in a few critical aspects of the company. Expectations were very high to fill in when needed on your days off and the work life balance was tilted heavily to the work side of things.
B-pressure welder / Pipefitter Foreman (Former Employee) – Anzac, AB – 28 February 2017
This workplace had no typical day . I learned many new things about pipe fitting on this job , after I was promoted to pipe fitter foreman . As a foreman my people management skills were refined by my superiors . Safety was the main workplace culture with this job . Learning the paper work was the most difficult part of the job . The people i worked with was the most enjoyable aspect of the job .
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 February 2017
- worked with a great team of people; - best salary I ever got from any company and benefits were great too - you really need to sell yourself in order to be promoted; be prepared to put yourself out there and be noticed for the work you do if you want to get ahead
Positive team environment
Instability of the industry doesn't guarantee you long term job
Good work environment. Excellent people to work with
Heavy oil operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 17 February 2017
Good operational support and access to materials and services to meet operational mandates. Well run company that did not have the rigid corporate culture that one would expect in a such a large corporation.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 January 2017
Not a great place to work at. Pay and benefits were high for my age and experience. Management varied greatly from role to role and greatly affected job quality. Not always a great place to work as a young engineer as sometimes not enough work and the managing of the young engineers program at the company was terrible. Rotating people into roles they did not want or forcing them to leave roles they enjoyed was quite common. Groups did not have well laid out plans which caused a lot of sitting around doing nothing.
Excellent Company to work for, great people and you are rated fairly.
Process Operator (Former Employee) – Anzac, AB – 8 January 2017
I had an excellent experience at Conoco Phillips. Being in many industries over the last 12 years in the work force I would rate ConocoPhillips as number 1. The people are excellent, the environment to learn is hard to duplicate and the work life balance is excellent. Having the privilege of working for Conoco Phillips was great and I would jump on an opportunity within my field at this company again, no questions asked.
The people are A++, awesome learning environment, great salary, new equipment.
14 days of straight work is sometimes a hard stint.
Team lead and Driver (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 29 December 2016
Very good Eastern European Company. I had a very good time with the staff, they were very nice, cooperative and listens very carefully. Wonderful atmosphere. Christmas party I never thought this is Canada
Good outstanding company when it comes to safety in the work place
Oil & Gas Safety Specialist( Contract ) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 December 2016
Lots of travel to locations and meetings. Helped put Coaching program in place, Found the coach program was well respected by all crew members / Contractors. The hardest part of the job was to convince personnel to slow down at times and importance of taking the time to document JSA/HazardId's, Near misses ect ... The rewards of the job was seeing outstanding progress after a few visits and finding very little hazards on my walkarounds and attitude to documentation was improved.
