Reasonable salary with good benefit package
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB10 October 2017

Due to the dependence on weather conditions sometimes employees do not get a full week's hours.
Pros
Strong safety culture

No camp accomodations available - leads to a long commute.

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

Good job
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB13 May 2017
drive haul truck what I learn is don't take your job as a full time job as it was posted on the job board as it is not a long term job.
Management seemed to be butting heads with the team leads.
the hardest part of the job was listening to the two-way radio all day long to much unnecessary chatter on it.
Pros
If you like operating heavy equipment then this is a good job.
Cons
to much unnecessary chatter on the two-way radio.

Very poor/low company morale
Accounts Payable Administrator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 April 2017
Typical day at work was usually fast paced. As recession hit Edmonton, there was over 3000+ layoffs in 3 years. Very low company morale. No one was happy at their job. You never knew if you were going to get laid off when you went into work every day. You can walk in to start your shift, then 20 minutes later you are walking out with your termination papers. Super strict, not out to help their employees succeed in any way.
Pros
Some free lunches
Cons
Horrible morale
