Major Projects Safety Coordinator (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – December 12, 2013
Pros: close to town
Cons: everything else...
Management of Suncor Major Projects HSE department is absolutely incompetent and bullies their people. Anyone who complains or stands up for themselves is terminated. They have no decent safety program and anybody with an ounce of talent or self-respect leaves as soon as they find something better. Their safety record is one of the worst in the oil sands.
Turnaround Mechanical Engineer in Training (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – March 13, 2015
Pros: excellent salary package, good experience, good employees
Cons: cold in fort mcmurray
I worked at Suncor as an intern and I had the best time of my life during this one year. The experience was great. Accommodation was provided by the company. There were many young interns and new graduates in the company with weekly events happening at Suncor accommodation.
I had a very good manager and provided excellent mentoring. My mistake was to turn down their offer to hire me as an EIT after graduation. I highly advise joining their new grad or intern programs.

Project Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – February 22, 2015
work varies time to time. high load to low load the management varies, personally it gets better the higher the chain you go. Suncor is a multi-culture organisation. the kind of people you work vary - from fun intelligent staff to not so intelligent The hardest part of the job is uncertainty. The management time to time lack the vision and as such make it difficult for the staff to figure out what to work on as a priority.
