Pros
Paid training

Old boys club
Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB7 June 2018
Ceda is definitely a old boys club. If you’re not friends with foremans or management you will not advance. Ceda management at Syncrude treats their employees,especially shutdown workers really bad. They don’t care about you, you’re only a number who can be replaced. Do not get sick and miss work or they will hold it against you. The trucks they use is so worn out and unsafe,they shouldn’t be allowed to use them. I recommend to stay away from this company.
Pros
Flights and accommodations paid for
Cons
Management. Away from home months at a time.

Lost when it comes to management
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Conklin, AB25 May 2018
When you fire someone without cause and tell them that they just don't, 'fit in" - that's not a company who cares about their employees... oh wait - I was a laborer ... not a driver. So of course I am replaceable and treated like dirt. The only way you might want to stay with this organisation is if you have a class one license , then they would treat you much better!

So if you are a laborer .... AVOID.

If you are a truck driver, they will treat you a bit better because they need you.
Pros
work away from home
Cons
mismanagement - shortage of pickups to use

It was a experience
Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Bonnyville, AB26 March 2018
Unfortunately this company is not going to receive any high praise as being a outstanding company to work for. With many years of work for them they care more about the $ amount that a employee will work for then the actual skills that they can bring forward. Management was horrible with no understanding how to execute their job. One of the lowest paying outfits around right now does not make this a company anyone really wants to work with or for given the workmanship they attract.

Managment needs work
Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB2 October 2017
Management needs to work on effectively communicating with employees. Many issues with receiving pay in a timely manner and on time. Company does not pay out per diems for training up front and they do not advise you of this.

Safe and well managed

Pros
The people I worked with.
Cons
How the fly ins were treated.
