Bad benefits, decent salary
Summer Student Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABNovember 9, 2014
Worked as an operator doing shift work. If your ok with shift work than this is a great job, it's located in the city, easily accessible. Seemed like the employees were not happy about the benefits plan, saying things like Shell and Esso have a much better plan for their employees. Other than that it was a fun place to work, great people to work with, management wasn't really noteworthy. Salary is decent compared to other major companies for operators starting upwards of 85k.

Engineering Co-op - Maintenance & Reliability (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NLAugust 13, 2015
You get to learn a lot from people who have tons of experience in the industry. There is freedom to innovate better work processes if you put in the effort. An issue that came up was, due to the company's large size it is hard to maintain effective communication between different departments.
Pros

Cons
Higher management keeps changing

Document Management System (DMS) Coordinator
Document Management System (DMS) Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, ABNovember 6, 2015
I enjoyed working with Suncor and was proud to say that I single handily initiated and executed the DMS workflow at MacKay River plant of Suncor and was able to train both Supervisor, Managers and Directors alike on the functionality of the process as well as training other colleagues to join the crew, in less than a month as again the third of the year which was originally predicted. I take great pleasure and passion when I am working regardless of what responsibility.

Contractor
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray ABApril 15, 2014
Organised a solid team to execute and complete our task over two years. Management was inspirational, very good at position. Not a lot of room for advancement, was hostile environment in that respect. Contractor position lacked any benefits and were not involved in overall company culture activities. Altogether had a strong team who worked hard and did our best to succeed at the task.
