Decent Place
Decent place to work was laid off unexpectedly due to Covid. Was Promised on going contract and laid off 2.5 months later. Was upsetting as I left a decent job to go there. Very displeased with OE955 Union. They claim that you will be a member within 3 months but they do anything and everything in their power to stall and delay membership. I met all requirements in April nd still fighting for benefits 6 weeks later

Don't do it unless you have to
I guess it's alright if you really need the work. You won't be recognized unless your in with the "cool kids", which is alright if you just wanna show up for a paycheck. It was hard to make any kind of advancement amongst all the super truckers and know it alls. Management doesn't want to hear what anyone has to say. And the union is a joke.

They only care about the bottom line
Most supervisors are good 1 bad One
Upper management poor and are always looking to find blame just like trump

No one is happy working there it’s just a job they cut your rates and you have to travel 45 min from the gate on your own time This adds 2 hrs 20 min to your day unpaid turn over is high

Good people to work for
If you're looking for a fast pace of work and good pay, then this is it. Good foremen to work with. If your skill level is good enough, they don't micro manage you.

Good company, good people
We ran a 14/7 schedule with camp.. the rotation isn’t for everyone but I loved it. Great way to make money.
Supervisors were great, with an odd one out here and there but that is to be expected. Good iron, good mechanics 100% recommend this company

Big company, so supervisors vary, but good all around.
Good pay, good people, work hours are long, sometimes camp stay, usually shift work, working for North American but under a general contractor such as syncrude or Suncor.

Good company to work for
I enjoyed working at North American Construction They treated staff fairly, were reasonable people to deal with. Hiring process was simple and they gave good instructions as to their expectations I made a safety mistake and was fired on the spot though wish they would have given me a second chance

Safe Work and Productive Company
Supervisors and co-workers are friendly and understanding. The supervisors are very pro-active and stay two steps ahead. A typical work day was 12 hours long with the 2 hour commute, there were co-workers who would car pool.

Disappointment all around
Once I got on site I was told I had a different job than I had accepted. I had applied and accepted a job as a shop apprentice. Found myself on a field crew with guys who were contractors. No service truck so they tried putting me with the contractors, they weren't interested in having someone in there truck with them. Terrible experience. Was used as a laborer most days.

Avoid this sweatshop type atmosphere
This company talks a big game on the phone. Then when you get to site you realize you have been fooled. They only pay 11.5 hr days even though you are in camp away from home. NO OT unless you work days off. Union gets a $600 initiation fee then monthly dues and they DO NOTHING, they do not back you, fight for you etc. Just one giant scam.

The place is cheap, dont expect good coveralls, ppe etc.


Equipment is junk for the most part, some new pieces but it wont be long before that gets run down like everything else.


I was at Kearl and that place is like jail, the food is disgusting even for camp. The camp is dirty, rooms are gross, ALWAYS check your bed, I open the sheets and there is hair, used toothpicks etc.


It is a 45min drive to site and 45 min back to camp unpaid as well.


This place has the highest turnover rate of employees I have ever seen.
