Very clicky

The company is run on favouritism. If you don’t have friends in high place, don’t expect to advance in the company. And if you’re good at something…..they leave you there.

Pros

6 days on and 6 days off

Cons

If you have an opinion, or stand up for yourself….. you’re a target for termination.

A challenging supportive and collaborative place to work

As a imbedded (T-4) contractor I was not privy to most of the benefits Enjoyed by Syncrude employees. They were however very accommodating in terms of things like office ergonomics and I was allowed to work from home during my last month of employment until the point all imbeddedcontractors were laid off

Pros

Community support environment

Cons

Difficulty in getting hired on full time

The big problem with medical problems

I think you have to be seeing me lost 9pounds and the second thing is to work on my body so that it can get my heart rate down to be seeing me lots in my life I think that the people who have been going through that experience have to be friends but not at house now for my massages and my friends are going to be friends

Syncrude Canada is a Great Place to Advance

At Syncrude Canada my experience was a work hard and advance type culture. A typical day was morning meeting, work on latest projects, update ongoing projects and host Countdown meetings to check status of all projects scheduled for that year. I learned everything I know at Syncrude and it was a hard but rewarding process. My 11+ years there was overall driven by changes in both process and management change frequently. The workplace was full of great people and fun loving individuals but the culture was a competitive yet team driven environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the ever changing outages to plan and seeing the final execution of the plan.

A good job to have

More than fair compensation but employment is not guaranteed. There is lots of turnover in the embedded office but I would still recommend this for anyone, especially if they need experience.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Changing schedule
