Great place to work. Everyone made you feel welcome.
Camp Attendant (Former Employee) – Ft. St. John, BC – 12 March 2018
Great place to work. Got along great with Cook and Second Cook. The Camp Foremen were good to work under and gave positive feedback. The Camp Operators, Pilots and Medics were all a great bunch of guys and girls. The Camp was like a big happy family. A home away from home and made the Catering Staff feel welcome.
Half decent wages. Good work environment. TV Room and Gym.
Sr. Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 February 2018
I worked with Vista projects as a senior electrical designer and most of the projects we got were from Conoco Phillips. Working with Conoco Phillips was great, the atmosphere was calm and everyone worked as a team. There weren't really any difficult parts of the job because everyone worked together to achieve a similar goal. The job overall was an amazing experience.
Everyone came to a wonderful get together that took place monthly
Air Emissions Management Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 February 2018
Excellent compensation packages and work environment as long as you can keep your job. They tend to go through massive layoffs and the intermediate management is not effective in terms of managing what they need to manage - people and the work.
This was a good place to work prior to all of the layoffs
Administrative Assistant, Oil Sands Operations (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 December 2017
I learned quite a bit. Management was okay. Workplace culture was good prior to the layoff announcements. They support taking courses while working which is beneficial to be able to learn more for your job.
Current Management bets of unconventional over diversification.
Drilling Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 December 2017
I worked for ConocoPhillips Canada which was a combination of 4 different companies hence it was difficult for COP global to enforce a single work culture. The people I worked with very nice guys however, the friendship and who is your buddy really affects keeping the best and letting go the worst (weeding out manpower).
Millwright/A.P.E. Maintenance (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 December 2017
I've been involved in the oil industry for over the past 7 years. The Surmont family is the greatest place I've ever worked. Management is incredibly fair respectful and honest. Our 14 in 14 off schedule is great for families and home work balance. The camp is works class, rooms are quiet and are completely self contained ( private bathroom) gym facilities are better then most gyms in the city and the lunches are great. If you ever get the opportunity to be a part of this company I highly recommend it.
Contract Land Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 November 2017
I enjoyed my time there, I learned a lot and grew as a person and an employee. We had great staff, communication and an environment that allowed staff to grow and feel like part of a company that wanted you to be a part it.
