Major Projects Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 12 December 2013
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.
Millwright Apprentice (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 October 2017
Work was minimal, not much was learned. They lack support for their new hires. The busing system is terrible. I will never return to work for Suncor, I was discouraged from being productive because there was "no point"
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 15 October 2017
Suncor has a very thorough training program and safety is the number one priority. The schedule is 3 days 3 nights and 6 off. I learned a lot but the schedule was not desirable for me as we were always coming off of night shift.

Suncor base plant operates too many silos and there is very little accountability across the board, especially higher up. Suncor also restricts where you can apply with in company and may lay you off in the end after restricting your options, even if your house burnt down in the fires. Good money, painful to work for if you take pride in your work.
Process (Contact) Engineer - Fort Hills (Former Employee) – Buffalo, AB – 13 September 2017
FIFO opportunities (7x7) provide a great work and life balance. Currently in transition to become a very procedural and standardized company to compete with the International industry. Training programs are sufficient and comprehensive, management structure is top heavy with far too much management.
Excellent camp accomodations and work-life balance on 7x7
12 hour shifts, below average benefits and compensation
Extraction Warehouse Unit Leader (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 25 August 2017
Suncor overall is a good company to work for. There are lots of good people that really work at getting things done. If only the management of the company would take a step back listen and implement what the workers are suggesting it would be a much more efficient and productive company.
Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 August 2017
They provide free training in all aspects. You need free time to look for what you want to learn in their portal. In some areas people are extremely busy while in some others you will see people relaxing.
productive and fun workplace with leisure off work activities in camp
Contractor (Former Employee) – Fort McKay, AB – 15 August 2017
Subcontracted and very disconnected from client as a laborer. Work your hours without a poisonous attitude and you'll do fine, many things to keep your mind off the long terms at work away from home if you take advantage of the facilities off work leisure activities.
Good meals, good wages, training paid (when provided)
Bad management/co-workers at times, If you aren't part of the work friend club... good luck!
Reliability- Shovels (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 1 August 2017
Learned a great deal while working for Suncor. Times are changing and safety is still very important. Suncor remains focused on the safety of their employees and strives to maintain world class strategies for production, maintenance and safety.
Maintenance Planning and Process Governance (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 July 2017
Very good company with a strong safety culture. Mid-level management is extremely competent and are excellent colleagues to work with. However over past 5 years the big corporate culture has started to dominate,
Asset & Operation Strategy Development Leader (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 July 2017
The company gives you what you want to accomplish your work. You can make sure that working there, you will have the support from your management. There are few things that can be improved as all organizations.
