Lead Hand (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 1 November 2017
I have an excellent schedule with Fort McKay. Working at Albian Site. All the managers, supervisors and leads are very helpful. Safety is very important and they take care that incidents are kept to minimum Started as a material handler and moved to lead position. Scope to move ahead if you are dedicated to work place and want to work hard. Overall very good place to work. Crew that I work with is awesome as well.
Medical benefits for family, very accommodating and understanding management
They are like the government give with one hand and take with the other. They appear to be doing you a favor but really they they are not. Has been a steady decline in benefits and wages. Not what the company once was.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 6 December 2015
A typical day involved team meeting at beginning of shift, being active in the production of the company, being involved in daily goals and being able to talk with supervisors without feeling like you were being undermined.
Fort mackay is a great company, it makes you want to wake up in the morning and head to work because the people are so great.

Fort mackay is a great company that makes you want to wake up in the morning and head to work because the people are great. The pros far outnumber the cons of this company. Negative side is the amount of family members working directly for one another.
Skilled workers with no sense of employment security or advancement opportunities.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 28 September 2014
-Shift starts @ 6:00 am with toolbox safety meetings then go into the field. - Walk around safety pre-checks on equipment exterior/interior, Paperwork (FLRA's, & equipment log-in hours/maintenance book), conduct series of brake tests, systems/control tests (steering,lights, horn etc..). -Await further instruction. -Awesome teamwork with clear instructions. -Indecisive project planning creates tough down time with lack of productivity. -Gratification is rewarding after project is complete. Many talented Operator employed including myself with no sense of job security or advancement opportunities.
camp was great, peers were same age group, and awesome team work environment.
job security was # 1 issue, poor leadership with indecisive project planning methods.
