easy but not very flexible with time off
density and concrete tester (Former Employee), Fort McMurrayMay 12, 2015
Pros: good money
Cons: night shifts
great management and coworkers train you very well, just be sure that you book time off way in advance cause they will try and get you to work as much as they legally can.

Company has great employees, and field management, but the managers in Calgary and in Fort McMurray are not approachable and do not understand what the job in the field is like.

An excellent place to start your career and gain field experience
Construction Field Coordinator (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, ABFebruary 20, 2014
A typical day at work revolves around the construction projects within the Oil Sands industry (12 hours / day).
Lots of opportunities get hands on experience at field work / lab work.
Hardest part of the job would be getting accustomed to the harsh. climate and the absence of a major city life.

well managed and good company to work for
berm monitor/geotech (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: barbeques with co-workers at site office
Cons: cold winters
-typical day/night at work involved; writing thorough and detailed notes throughout the day, filling out shovel sheets at the end of the day, compaction testing on lifts placed, taking samples of materials and taking them to the lab, talking to engineers and planners about the project and concerns, identifying and classifying material types that mining equipment are digging, relaying specs and design – more... controls to operations and team leads, entering testing and sampling results on computer

-co-workers were easy to get along with, all became friends and hangout after work

-hardest part of the job would be to get operations to follow the cleaning and placing specs of a lift during winter

- most enjoyable part of my job would be the overall learning experience and opportunities to work with numerous people and different projects – less
