Great place to work
Lead Hand (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB1 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.

Fuel Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Canada22 February 2016
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.
Pros
You have a job

Your just a number

labourer (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB29 November 2015
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.
