Excellent company to work for,they know who you are & you're not just a number unlike most places.
Although it was a fast and productive place to work it had a sense of layed back and ease with very tight knit crews.
Pros
Supervision & crew all knew each other
Cons
Weather days

Management tend to punish you for calling in sick or tired would call in for one day and told not to work for two additional days. A lot of favouritism

As a new operator, it takes you a lot of patience to understand the job, very challenging stress and big responsibility. You should be aware of everything around you.

Loads of hours, decent pay and plenty of work if you're willing to travel. I wasn't with them 6 months and they were already talking apprenticeship, if you're looking to become a tradesman they'd be a great place to start. Their training and safety departments are on the ball, supervison was great.
Pros
LOA and flights, they take care of their guys. Great training and safety departments.
Cons
Loads of work and travel, if you aren't in to that kind of thing.

Short time was long enough sentence. Most new hires only last a shift.They will say anything to get you there. Little to no tools. Shop trucks are a joke they're parts runner trucks. No crane half a toolbox to put stuff in. Other contractors get payed waaay more to do he same job. Camp is supplied but you pay it in a taxable benefit. Pay your own travel. Only good place to work for these guys is syncrude apparently. Management is a joke no one knows what's going on and people just point fingers. Most of the guys are ok but no one wants to be there so everyone is miserable. Not a day goes by people wonder what they did to work at such a place.
Pros
Watch the planes fly away and dream
Cons
Like prison

Family feeling, management continuously encourages and promotes safety over production
Maintenance does require improvements in order to reduce downtime


Great place to work, the work life balance not to the greatest but you’re well compensated and your safety and the safety of others is never compromised

I worked in maintenance & observed there were just a core group of guys that they trusted rotated new hires constantly like every 6 to 7 months. Upper management was just bad, u dont complain period!

had a poor experience with some management, a lot of favoritism and family hiring. Very poorly maintained equipment, and just overall felt like my opinions did not matter.

New supervisor very judgemental not a fair chance. Was let go without just cause said too much training was given can not really give too much training to be safe in a haul truck. These are big machines and training should be adequate

great people to work with but the union has screwed these employee's badly by cutting wages when other companies haven't , only reason to leave is lack of work due to weather and loss of wages.
Pros
good people / crew
Cons
bad weather shutdowns

upon starting the position on site the IT portion of my position was skirted for months until an enquiry was made and promptly disabled the access we where using. This drastically hampered the team from effectively doing our jobs. This being said the people where fantastic to work for
Pros
grate staff
Cons
the Graham side was very disorganised

Typical day was a safety meeting in the dry then out into the mine to work. Either loading trucks or hauling dirt. I learned a lot about the oil sands. The managment is very helpful and none judgemental. Hardest part was nightshift. The most enjoyyable part was loading dirt.
Pros
Good money n working stat holidays

long boring days, everyone for themselves, work hard as you want and get little to no praise for your efforts, management will make some workers look bad to make themselves look good.

Most disorganized place I've ever worked. Management likes to micromanage everything. The quality of work was complete garbage. They would let trucks go out the door that had massive frame crack damage ect...but for sake of having the trucks running they tell you to not worry about it
Pros
2 weeks off
Cons
Management is terrible
