Bullies in management roles emphatically supported
Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 September 2018
Suncor is a great company overall BUT the culture allows for isolated management awfulness to ensue. My boss humiliated any employee within reach. He was afraid of anyone who challenged his ideas and felt no shame in belittling people to the point of mental breakdown. Existing processes, culture and senior management were supportive of this behaviour.
I'm out now, but lost almost two years of income as a result! Outrageous. If you find yourself in a similar circumstance, don't give in like me. Take them court.
So many great people and challenging work
A few absolutely horrible people managers are sheltered
Electrical & Instrumentation (Former Employee) – Base Plant – 28 August 2018
Used to be an amazing place to work. Was like a second family. All new management was brought in and all of a sudden it didn't matter how long you were there, how hard you worked or what you did for the company. Work life balance was taken away and job insecurities were introduced.
SCM Planner (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 August 2018
We were treated as family by the managment. Safety first is the main concern for everyone as part of the workplace culture. I enjoyed working and learned a lot as I was given an oppotunity to have my weaknesses to be my strenght. Also learned to be more knowledgeable in SAP and other other jobs.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 August 2018
Would come in at 7am, work until lunch; take a quick break and work until 4. Went home, had dinner, logged in from home and continued to work until 10-11pm. Was always told I wasn't getting my job done even though I worked crazy hours of unpaid overtime.
Great work life balance and shift work. Excellent team culture
Maintenance Business Support Senior Coordinator (Former Employee) – Firebag Fort McMurray Alberta – 14 August 2018
A typical day would be 14 hours with daily team meetings to review work tasks with employees, daily Management meetings, running daily reports and reviewing status of work completed by the team. Verifying daily timesheets and sending reports to the contractors. Troubleshooting issues with other departments when applicable. Since this was a new admin team we were eager to accept new tasks, so we were continually learning new scopes of work and collaborating with difference departments. Workplace culture was a family environment because we all worked in camp for 14 days and also socialize with our team players after work. The most difficult part of the job would be communicating a weak job performance to an employee or having to fire an employee. Most enjoyable part of the job was collaborating with other departments and learning new tasks.
Great salary and benefits, excellent team members easy to work with them
Long shift 14 days - also flew across Canada after shift was over
E & I Maintenance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort Hills, AB – 11 August 2018
Salary is fairly good. Benefits are quite good. Bonus structure is really good, especially once you move up. Many different options for advancement. There are good managers and bad managers, but if you get a bad one, hopefully you can find another position. Work is not very technical and can be a little boring.
DMS Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 July 2018
Results-oriented DMS Coordinator with diversified experience in high-pressure, time sensitive positions. Recognized for uniqueness in developing processes in start-ups and ensuring optimal delivery of services and documentation processes in Oil & Gas projects.
Construction Coordinator / Project lead (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 July 2018
My personal belief is that Suncor's commitment to safety is what makes it an attractive place to work. Working safely is not only a persons right but is contingent on continued employment on Suncor sites.
It can be a fast paced environment but stymied at times due to work permits being delayed and or plant upsets which you quickly learn that it is simply part of the environment. Suncor offers and encourages employees take advantage of the opportunity to learn and grow while gainfully employed, not only as a professional but individual also. The multi-cultural work force ensures you will have an opportunity to learn about other countries and their cultures.
All in all a great place to work and learn, if you receive an opportunity to work at Suncor, take it.
Training Administrator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 June 2018
I worked in the training department. There was always lots to do. I learned a lot about patience and accuracy in recording information for documentation. Firebag is a large mine site and during shutdown - so many people to organize training for within a short time usually only 4 days to train all the contractors that would be working for the very short duration of a shutdown.
