Productive and fun environment filled with valuable experience
Intellectual Property Admin Support (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJanuary 6, 2015
My position required me to create a database for contracts and legal agreements that Suncor has had for the Technology Development Department.
This position required me to set my own deadlines since the purpose of my position was to create a database by the end of my work term. I was allowed to participate in team meetings to help me understand technical terms and processes that were taking place in the Oil Sands. I, also, attended a session that helped me understand Suncor's liability in its existing and future contracts, licenses, and legal agreements.
Every employee is willing to help if you ask for it. Suncor has a very friendly environment where everyone is respected and is very strong on safety in the workplace.
The hardest part of my position was the tedious effort of scanning binders and binders of legal documents which was required of my position. It takes a long time and is physically straining.
However, the most enjoyable part of my job was the tremendous learning experience I had gained. I got to learn a lot of technical knowledge, work ethics, and awareness of safety.
I truly believe that my Suncor experience is a turning point in my career as a future Electrical Engineer.

Recruiter (Former Employee), CalgaryDecember 22, 2014
Pros: work life balance
Cons: movement of management
Working for Suncor was a great learning experience for me. It was a large organization with a lot of great opportunity. I moved around to a couple of different positions until I found my challenge of being an HR Advisor and a HR Recruiter while going to school. The most hardest part of the job was the demand for perfection was high. I had a great team whom always had my back. The most enjoyable part of the job was my team and the work life balance.
