As anything your crew makes the work place. Had a great team.
Rock Truck Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 July 2017
I have to say all company's in this industry go through the samething waiting on permits and sometimes things take a bit longer and other times bam. All in all I got along with all the forman and most co workers. If I had issues or concerns ppl in the office were right there to help solve it. I learned alot working with this company and if they had in city work id still be there. Remember your attitude at work can make it a good work place or a not so good work place.
Operator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 August 2017
Pretty decent place to work, they have a good understanding of what they need to do to be competitive and keep crews busy. Can make a buck or two more at other companies but these guys have always have work even when everyone else is closing their doors.
Have seen a few people leave and they quickly realise the grass is actually greener here and they come back.
Rock Truck Operator 30 , 40, 60 and 100 tonnersv (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 July 2017
They paid labours 19 to 20 bucks hr 777 heavy haulers 24 to 26 hr 1 week in 1 week out there was no money to be made on the suncor fort hills oil sands project especially since they did not pay for flights to and from site , no travel time from camp to work site and that was 30 min bus ride both ways , bus left at 5 30 sharp and didnt get back till after 7 pm and only got paid for 11.5 hrs every day , the rooms never got cleaned no clean towel at all it was welfare living , people leaving faster then they could find them feel bad for suncor having such a cheap company on there site and wasting Suncors time with all thee oreintations and room setting up for the workers that would just stay one tirn around and leave cause morgan construction was so cheap
No pros, at all
Long hrs, low pay, tons and tons of paper work even had to pay for your coveralls from them $135 from your first check
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 9 February 2017
it was a great place to work other than no position guarantee,the most enjoyable part of working for them was the crew nd supervisors they where very hands on with problems and easily solved with the field
Kept in the dark and treated like diposable garbage
Excavator/Dozer Operator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 January 2016
Very disorganized company. very clicky, if you wernt one of the boys you were nothing. You wernt told about changes till the last second. they would switch off a job at a moments notice and not explain why. Kept operators that were not safe or even good at their jobs because they were friends of someone else.
A diverse company which offered many different oppurtunities to expand my knowledge.
Operator/Labourer (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2015
A day in a Morgan Construction position has you getting up early, travelling by bus or truck to the job site, participating in a group safety meeting, recieving your assignments for the day, then going straight to work in rock trucks, etc. I have learned how to work safetly in the field while obtaining many certificates to help me do so. My management was enjoyable and I quickly became friends with all my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is constantly being away from home and my family. I found the most enjoyable part was developing relationships with people in all fields of expertise.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 1 May 2015
My typical day at work started with safety meetings and tool box meetings with our supervisor and crew, which made our daily duties more clear and organized.
I learned that safety is the most important duty at work, next to being present. Paying attention to management detail(s) allows the crew members to perform their duties effeciently in an organized manner.
The hardest part of the job is compensating for crew members who are lacking to details from management. On the other hand, the most enjoying part of the job is the ability to problem solve cohesively according to detail, and requirment from management.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 April 2015
Good company to work for overall, great management with a good work culture, very high on safety and wonderful safety officers. Enjoyed working with this company and all the best to them in the future.
worth killing time with while you look for something else
Haul truck driver (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 May 2014
Worked with them for 6 months until I a better offer came along. The crews were good the foremen were good but the wage was low the benefit package was the bare minimum and with no flights booked or travel allowance I wasn't really getting anywhere.
Camp, lots of OT, weren't afraid to train the right guys
Equipment operator/ Trainer/Mentor (Former Employee) – KEARL LAKE, ab – 18 April 2014
The management team at morgan are a wonderful group of personnel to deal with. The health and safety team are amazing, always there to give advice when needed and very understanding. The hardest part of the job was being away from home ( that comes with any camp job). Working with such an amazing crew that loved to laugh and have fun was the most enjoyable part of the job.
