Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Mildred Lake, AB – 27 September 2017
Must be willing to look down on others once you receive your orange helmet. NEVER give respect to contractors!(as a orange helmet your just naturally better) disown friends you may have had that are still contractors, and brag about the money you make! Still there unfortunately but trying to get out !! People aren't likely to hire you once they know you work here they assume you have the same poor attitude.

Planner / Scheduler (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 December 2015
Enjoyed my time with them and would return if there was a position. All courses I had requested were paid for by Syncrude. They certainly look within at their own people when looking to fill positions.

Post 8 Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 7 July 2015
Work was easy, people were friendly, you could pretty much do your own thing, some managers were on a power trip. biggest issue, they hired kids out of school that didn't have a clue about working in the real world, and the woman that got hired, 90% were useless.
Payroll analyst (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 18 September 2014
I enjoyed working there because the management is very reasonable and understanding. I was able to explore different areas of payroll including filling in for front desk duties and working with accountants closely to make sure our process runs smoothly. I loved being challenged when new situations are being presented. Also I didn't mind helping the other payroll analysts when the work load gets to be too much for that one person.
Exciting and fun workplace with pool tables, ping pong tables, etc.
ID Attendant (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 May 2014
I enjoyed working for Syncrude. Not only because it was my first employment opportunity in Alberta, but for how fun they made it seem and how much I felt right at home. The management really took care of their employees and made sure everything was running smoothly. The hardest part of the job is figuring out what else there was to do once we were finished our work for the day. I would always finish really early in my shift and go out and find other work to do in my station.
