I don't recommend joining Suncor Baseplant if you are young unless you are unable to get anything else. The industry is not as attractive as it once was and won't be returning. Due to the decline Suncor is cutting costs in all ways through massive layoffs, no bonuses, no relocation support, or raises etc. No investment in creating happier employees, dirty smelly offices, low morale, pay not competitive for cost of living, no career advancement out of region, passive aggressive colleagues, dishonest management are just a few of the cons of joining FMM. The culture is poor here as employees are overworked. There is a lack of proper training due to high turnover because people are miserable and choose to leave. Daily commute to site will add a couple of hours to your already long work day and will be even longer when the weathers bad. Colleagues don't seem passionate about what they do, are uninspiring, and the workload is unevenly distributed.
Pros
Pension
Cons
Low morale in FMM, pay not competitive for the high cost of living, no career advancement outside of region, passive aggressive colleagues, poor management and training

Suncor loves to lay people off. It’s a fact. No matter what they say, when a recession hits, they will reduce their work force and freeze hiring. The toxic atmosphere during recession time is very demotivating!
Pros
Good pay, pretty good people
Cons
Toxic environment during recessions

No matter how hard you work if you are not part of the ol`boys club you can consider your time at Suncor limited. It's all a front for safety and culture, none of these things matter when it comes down to the numbers. Ive spent 2 years minding my own work and I did not make the cut! Me as an employee was "laid off" due to restructuring but my bosses buddy who was a contractor was made an employee. Go figure!? Reorganizing the company is their favourite thing to do, in 2 years I had 2 bosses. The company is good with good pay and benefits but the leadership team is a joke!
Pros
good pay/benefits
Cons
Management, Leadership, No growth

I loved my summer term with Suncor. Your manager and team really make the position, although, there are tons of opportunities to learn and excel. The location is also a bonus with tons of various restaurants and shops nearby.

Remote management from a disconnected leadership team in Calgary.In general, advancement was due to internal politics, rather than job aptitude or employee performance.
Cons
Long hours, dirty

There’s people working here that literally got the answers for the interview. Jacked up on steroids or employees that do heroin but give second chance then find up dead in their vehicle at the airport. Real classy people here.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Only hire by name hire

safety meeting, no body move nobody gets hurt, same old story watch out for your self and workers around you, some people r way to complacent, others r a bit clueless, many many chances to get hurt, stay safe. Avoid the politics,
Pros
Fly in fly out; week on week off schedule, decent mad money
Cons
Fly in fly out, camp life, Calgary head office to far removed sometimes to see what’s happening in remote work areas

The work at Suncor is meaningful, and was a good place to work at the beginning. There is an "old boys club" mentality and when leadership changes and your not a part of the new regime you will be squeezed out. With so many changes the culture can not be kept and you need to quickly figure out what new leadership wants or you do not fit in, despite working to what they say are their "Values".
Pros
Share units if you fit in or are at a high enough salary band.
Cons
Senior Leadership does not practice what Executive Leadership preaches, HR is weak at best and typically have junior advisors who do what senior leadership says.

Not sure about other plants although working at Base Plant in Fort McMurray was like going back in time 20+ years... Your average work day is usually overloaded, stressful, no consideration for their workforce, very little work life balance, your just another number, management don’t care about their people and disrespectful, get terminated with no room for explanation or second chances, 4 individuals were terminated within an 8 month period in our department with no explanation, the interview process is not worth the hassle, they try to control what you can and can’t do on your days off, the Plant is old and dangerous, no consideration for the environment by not reporting spills and releases to the regulators, save yourself the hassle and look elsewhere your self worth will thank you...
Pros
Close to town.
Cons
You can smell the stench from their tailings ponds from town.
