Good place to work. Suffering from low oil prices like anywhere else.
Senior Electrical Designer, Fort McMurray, AB - January 20, 2016
I worked there for 18 years and the people make it a great place to work. The management changed hands a few years ago and the focus seemed to move away from production efficiency and more towards maximum short term profit. Unfortunately the new management lacked faith in the ability of the existing staff and infrastructure to continue running the plant in a sufficiently profitable manner and they made many changes. This lead to the plant profits decreasing consistently over the remaining years and now they are looking for any and all ways to slash operating costs, including the layoffs of many long term experienced employees. As of right now, the plant is in the middle of a takeover bid from a competing plant and all signs lean towards the success of the bid. I will sorely miss working there as I made many good friends and acquaintances.
