Operator in Alberta
on 14 July 2022
Lots of work-Minimal staff
Lots of staff cuts have led to everyone being stretched too thin. There will be incidents to come from this. Its a big company and it shows with how slow they are to react to changing markets

Micro cubes to pay deducted
The office environment is not great. You have no space in the micro cubes. The pay and benefits are below market and you need to double chek your pay as sunlife often deducts more then you told them to in the enrolment.

One of the top jobs and employers I have ever had
Great company to work for! The team at Foster Creek are top notch and safety is a priority. Management lets me do my thing without micro managing and freedom to be responsible for the work assigned.The camp at Foster creek is a little old and dated but still decent. Christina Lake camp is one of the best accommodations I have seen in the industry. Good pay, excellent vacation and time off. Week on week off schedule with generous banked OT and vacation time. Benefits are pretty much standard.
Laborer in Lloydminster, AB

The company preaches diversity, it takes one look at the plant to see that is not true.
Uninvolved management and supervisor. Extremely Poor team atmosphere, where backstabbing is encouraged. The plant is run much like a popularity contest. The Supervisor chooses a couple of golden employees to communicate with to get 'the dirt' on other employees. It's as if he doesn't realize that most employees are competing with one another, they will say anything to remain in golden standing. You will very rarely see the supervisor. Therefore, whatever is being said behind your back is what he bases your value on, so good luck if you aren't friends with one of the golden favorites. Be prepared to be sabotaged and ridiculed especially if you are a minority.It's not what you know, it's who you know.
Sr Well Delivery Engineer in Calgary, AB

Worst place only focus on FCCL
New management only focus on Legacy thermal asset; don't care much about anything / anyone else. Mostly old Conoco people running the show; functional org has no place on Oil and Gas company.
