Manager (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 17 février 2019
Excellent benefits, pay, bonus and stocks option. Lot of opportunities still exist to trim the heavy upper management staff from Directors upwards. Few disgruntled senior officers mismanage the team yet senior staff ignore the meritorious staff at times. This's because of the cumbersome performance management system; lot of opportunities exist to simplify and minimize time spent on it by the employees. Overall good resource to advance one's career because of diverse business units and lot of well experienced folks.
Mechanical Engineer (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 16 février 2019
This is a good place to work and gain experience as an engineer. I was exposed to so many great engineering opportunities here. It is a real good chance to develop yourself. However, I did feel a little pigeon holed into one position, it is hard to be more of a generalist here as you get one job function and are expected to stay within that specific area.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 février 2019
Suncor is a decent place to work as a Heavy Equipment Operator. The shift is 6 days on, 6 days off, and you still start with just over 3 weeks paid vacation. They have lots of rules and protocols, but that increases the safety. No one pushes you to work fast or harder since that could cause an accident.
Learning Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 15 décembre 2018
Suncor was a good place to work. Their systems and offices were up to date and a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed the people I worked with other than one manager who micro-managed the team. Compensation was above average especially with the time off. I wouldn’t hesitate to work for Suncor again.
Enjoyed my time there assisting them with the startup of the Fort Hills project
CSU Specialist (Ancien employé) – Fort Hills, AB – 12 décembre 2018
Found personnel to be very professional and focused. Was given the latitude to implement ideas to resolve outstanding site issues as well as address any outstanding problems that could not be rectified by contractor field personnel.
EHS Advisor (Employé actuel) – Fort McMurray, AB – 3 décembre 2018
A great place to work with every from management to contract craft have a great working relationship. Workers new to site are pleasantly surprised to learn there is not "class system" we are one team with the common goal of working safely and productively. If you are a safe worker with a "professional work ethic", you will be welcomed here.
Large company that does not invest in its employees
Analyst (Employé actuel) – Calgary, AB – 27 novembre 2018
There is a lack of coordination between business units. Work would be completed only to find out another group was already working on it, or it had been done before. Many times work is started only to be shut down because a senior employee was not aware and did not see the value. Times when entire groups are left in limbo on the next steps, deliverables and what work needs to be completed.
Poor performance review cycle where personal feedback on employee work quality and areas to improve are non existent. Year end reviews are typically done well into the new year(Feb-March) after the year had finished. No support for employees who show desire to improve knowledge base or skills. Very political landscape where you need to know someone to advance.
Abysmal employee development, lack of planning & poor communication
Commissioning Contractor (Ancien employé) – Fort Hills, Fort McMurray – 27 novembre 2018
Fort Hills was a great place to learn about secondary extraction, and how it all operated. Commissioning different parts of the plant and working in the control room gave me a good overview of the plant
Power Engineer Student (Ancien employé) – Fort McKay, AB – 18 novembre 2018
Suncor is a great workplace with lots of potential for career advancement. you have the ability to learn new skills every time and rotate in different positions on shift based on your needs and plant demands.
