Labourer (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB30 January 2018
Difficult to form an opinion based on approximately two months of work before getting laid off as labourer. I appreciated the work and having transportation provided to the work site each work day.

Typical employer
Serviceman (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB18 December 2017
Wouldnt complain, they treat reliable dedicated employes well, but at the end of the day you're jist a number to them. They call themselves an equal opportunity employer but it seems an apprenticeship is near impossible to get.
Pros
Fair treatment
Cons
Low pay for oil sands jobs

Project Coordinator / Technical Services Mgr (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 December 2017
Company went public some years ago and the culture changed drastically when that happened. Shareholder value trumped sound construction practices. I exited the company not long after. Can't say what it's like to work there now.

Horrible place to work
Shovel operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB26 September 2017
Was there a week and a half. Harassed almost everyday. Disrespect of my experience and tried to push me into unsafe speeds I guess to see if that would cause an accident. Very little pay, on again off again work schedule. Management is a total disorganized gong show. Only the favorites are treated well. No proper training department as they are only paper pushers. A big waste of my time and money to ever come up here and hire on with these guys. And no camp means you take a big hit on your already meager pay.

Terrible company culture. Stay away if you have a choice
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 September 2017
Stay away as far as you can from this company. This company does not recognize hard work, the site is run like a gong show, it is extremely disorganized. Management have no respect for workers and is extremely manipulative. You are expected to do 3 people's job with no training and you will be left to pick up the slack when your coworkers ultimately fail to properly do anything, including their own job description. When your crew realizes how badly this person is doing and voices their concern, you will be the person management issue a warning to and accuse you of stirring the pot and over stepping your boundaries. If you don't want this to happen to you, you know what to do.
Pros
You have a job
Cons
You have a job with NACG

Work to death
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 September 2017
The management will work you until there is no use for you. The minute they feel they are not making money of you, you are out. The pay is bad. The benefits are bad. The HR group only take care of the people they like or are benefiting from otherwise, you are just a number and not worth their time or effort to help you.
Pros
they have the equipement recourses
Cons
benetifts. pay. work-life balance.
