Tailings Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 May 2016
A great group of guys on my shift that could be always counted on for advice and assistance making it an environment that we could gain experience and knowledge together and grow as a team. The shifts of 6 days on and 6 days off with options of paying or trading days with trusted sufficiently experienced operators on other shifts in order to manipulate off time for very flexible home and family life was excellent. This makes up for being away from home as a commuter or the almost 15 hours per day that was required to get to site, work the 12 hour shift, and return to home or rental accommodations. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to have the operators best interests as the best operators and employees are only treated as good as the less competent being punished and restricted as group when one employee is solely responsible for an incident. I know as management a certain prerogative is to be achieved but employees should be treated on a more personal level. I don't think anyone should be treated special but for management not being able to single out employees that have been hired with absolutely no experience and might not have the skills it will take for the position and to keep them on is creating an unsafe weak link that could ultimately result in an incident that will affect another employees family and wellbeing for the rest of their lives.
Work schedule, great group of co-workers, pretty much family

Unit Leader and Permit Issuer (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 April 2016
Performing daily duties and rounds while maintaining a stable performance in the plant was quite enjoyable and challenging at times. You learn to take action in emergencies, or from other operators or sometimes have to delegate work. The best part was learning new systems and trying to troubleshoot when problems arose.
