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.
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.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 July 2017
I worked with the global team with most of the resources located in India. As the part of a daily routine I ensured that all work items are tracking according to the schedule, or that the mitigation plans are in place and that the client agrees with the plan. Again, I had a privilege to work with the great individuals, however on many occasions it required an extra effort to clearly understand the team as some spoke with the broken English. The hardest part of the job was seeing the client not ready to commit to the changes that would benefit the business. The best part was to work with people on the team.
Very early meetings due to the team working from India
Fantastic experience working with leading edge and top notch people

Assistant Engineer (Power Engineer, 4th Class) (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 June 2017
If you like money and living in Fort Mcmurray, Suncor is for you. The shift is 6 on/6 off. Company is large and unlikely to file bankruptcy. The company is so large that you could easily fall through the cracks and be forgotten about (this could be good or bad depending on what you want).
Amazing company to work for, especially being a Co-op student
Development Lead - Co-op (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 3 June 2017
Friendly management made it very easy for students to learn and feel welcomed at Suncor. Competitive salary and great benefits even for students. Was provided with a very nice residence and even a transportation service to and from work.
Five fatalities in 2014 was an indicator of a culture where what's written and preached is not what's being followed at the working level.
Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 May 2017
There were great intentions and written rules that were by-passed or ignored by middle management. Then there is the so-called operational excellence, which is comparable to propaganda in communism regime. Great engineering work and opportunity to learn; however, everything that was done was very subjective and tailored to management expectations. Excellent human resources services, by far the most helpful I have seen. Worst and dangerous part for the company is the yes culture regardless of technical arguments and written values.
