Suncor is a great company.
Transportation Auditor (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABJanuary 29, 2013
Pros: camp life with food included, flexible hours, great people.
Cons: none.
I was hired for a two month contract in Alberta in the summer of 2012. Suncor made it easy for me to travel from Ontario to Alberta, provided me a place to stay and food. The hours were great, and I have no complaints with this company.

Capability Development Analyst (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 29, 2012
Pros: job security
Cons: you're just a number
After three and a half years of working at Suncor I applied for a job that I was qualified for but because of my current position I wasn't even interviewed and was told to quit and apply to Suncor again in a year if I wanted that job...?!?! Great way to retain people. I've also noticed policies are grey and it completely depends on the group you're – more... working with more than the company. – less
