Not one of the better places in the industry. You need to be part of a cleuqe or you won’t survive. Management from top to bottom plays favourites and overlooks serious issues depending on who you are or who your friends with. Not the kinda place you can bring up serious issues for fear of being run off the site. Supervisors will lie to your face and not even do a good job at it. Even be proud of it because they know they can get a way with it They will find ways to get rid of you for caring and taking the job seriously if your not part of the special circle. Safety is often overlooked at the cost of friends and who you know
Money is decent. A lot of good people working there.shifts are great so is the camp environment
Fort McKay group, have bullies and weasel people working there, lots of favoritism and malicious behavior. Equipment is malfunctioning it not safe. I have learned from this company not to trust nobody not even the Foreman's
Fort McKay alone has been a great organization to work for. Unfortunately our contract got renegotiated and for this particular site we all took a very large pay cut. The supervisors and account manager we had were by far the greatest people I've ever worked for. It is sad that we will all disperse now.
Family oriented, great safety culture
It's still a contractor, anything can happen at any time.
Lot's to learn, variety of areas to work in. Multiple shifts to suit home life. Typical day at work is team meeting, complete FLRA and dissucss days tasks with co-workers. Some days can be quite busy and other days give you the chance to clear up loose ends and house keeping.
My job was to maintain the fuel and fluid levels on various equipment throughout two large open pit mines. I learned a lot about the operation of a mine as well as had the experience of working with some of the largest machinery in the world.
