Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, ABFebruary 10, 2015
12-14 hour days, learned how to operate equipment and all the components to heavy equipment. I was a shift push for a crew, recieved many promotions back to back. My coworkers and I work well together, got along best with my shop foreman. The hardest thing about the job is the visibility, workplace, unsafe hazards, heavy equipment, long hours, and away from home. I enjoy the group of guys I work with and the pay cheques.
Pros
good money
Cons
long rotation and hours

Good learning experience and positive relationships were formed
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, ABAugust 13, 2014
I gained an insurmountable amount of knowledge and skills from my co-workers who I became very good friends with over the last year and a half.
I would operate the tower which controls the plant, go on the grounds and do physical labor mixed with spotting things that were wrong with equipment and then fixing them.
I also put on several hundred hours in the 988 cat loader and 980 cat loader and became a very well versed operator. I also can run a wiggle wagon.
Pros
good people to work with and learn from

Good company to gain experience; tasks can include anything from equipment operating to welding
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort Mcmurray, AlbertaMarch 9, 2012
Stony Valley is a good workplace if you are looking to gain general work experience. Each employee has the opportunity to perform tasks which would normally be unnatainable without qusalification. The hours are normal(12hrs) but there is 2 hours drive time everyday with a 10 on- 4 off schedule.
Pros
gainful experience
Cons
low wages
