Lots of people, sometimes fighting to pounce on the best project. However there is a lot of scope to improve the legacy system to bring real value to the company. Morale became low and has been going down further after FortMcMurray Fires.
Excellent company with great benefits but horrible leadership
C&SU Lead (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 23 octobre 2019
Suncor as a whole is an amazing company to bad the leadership has no idea on how to lead without bullying or installing fear in their employee's. I am sure there are better leaders within the company but the one's I have delt with were active bullies.
Challenging work place with fast paced changing work conditions and priorities.
Mine Equipment Maintenance Supervisor (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 20 octobre 2019
work priorities change continuosly depending on customers needs. you must be willing to accept failure of completing task in progress when priority changes. current task may be given to other individuals for completion. Dont take anything personal in a mining world, it is just a job that allows you to have a great life away from work. hold your chin up and be positive about change.
warm reception for the newcomers, very nice and comfortable working environment
Sr. Piping Designer/ Drafter (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 12 octobre 2019
Suncor is a great place to work and safety is number 1 I won't hesitate to come back again and work there again my Engineers are treating me with utmost importance, professionalism is always in the air.
Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 octobre 2019
Quite heavy on the mid level management. HR was very DISCONNECTED. Overall a really good organization. Very mindful on work life balance. The new CEO is a very kind down to earth person whom I met and volunteered with once. I believe he will take the organization to great new and amazing success. THIS IS AN ALBERTA STRONG SUCCESS!
Process, Procedures and Chain of Authority very clear.
Regulatory Affairs Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 2 octobre 2019
The day at work would start by 6:00 AM. Everyday there was something new to learn and share experiences. Safety being the prime focus of the company it had imbedded in everyones life. Management was very caring. The work place culture was phenomenal as most of us would work 7 on - 7 off and would work like an extended family. The hardest part of the job was being away from family when they needed you. The most enjoyable part of the job was people.
EO1 Laborer (Employé actuel) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 septembre 2019
Suncor has amazing staff and treats contractors right. Shift work is obviously expected but it's nice to have extended periods of time off. It feels good knowing that safety is the number one priority. You will NEVER be forced to something you are not comfortable with.
Great people to work with, but difficult to advance
Personnel Supervisor -Mine Operations (Employé actuel) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 septembre 2019
Love the friendly work environment and the approachable Mgmt we have. A great place to learn, and if you really enjoy the vibes of a fast pace environment, this is the industry and company in which you want to be working
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 août 2019
It's a great place lots of opportunities and great people to work with. The pay is good and atmospher is nice I would recommend it to anyone. They keep up to date with technology and training as they can
Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 26 août 2019
As stated, they need people to keep the production going. If you're willing to put in the time, you'll be compensated accordingly. This would be a great place to work if you're divorced, or seeking one, as your work/life balance can be difficult to achieve. [YMMV]. The pay was pretty phenomenal - $300k / year. However, some unqualified colleagues will make more, it's suggested that you worry less about the next person's paycheque.
They did lay-offs in 2014-2017 but really they could keep cleaning house. That said, I had some sub-par managers, and if you have a good manager, you will be challenged, you will be recognized, you will be compensated, and you will be made to feel like your contributions are worthy and appreciated by others - you will excel at this company, otherwise you will not. Your manager is the sole point of contact with success at Suncor. In the twilight of my career there I had a good manager, however, we didn't have enough time to gel a working relationship.
Their policies and guidelines at Suncor are pretty all-encompassing. Which is good in so many ways, but almost a little overboard. Many colleagues weren't subject matter experts and just 'winging it.' The PG&S are written so a functional illiterate can get by.
The hardest part of the job was to learn to care less. Many don't care, and if you care too much, it eats at your being. Some people don't know [things] but are insecure to ask. Many prop themselves up on falsehoods and lies. The truly gifted will see these people and dismiss their contributions as trite fluff. If you care too much youplus... will drown in others empathy. Go in, --relax-- do your job, do it well, you'll succeed. You won't transfer out, you will make good money. You will develop lasting relationships with others in the seven month long winter...moins

I worked at the fort hills project.. camp life was good. Safety was a priority on site. Management was pretty good. Suncor was good about letting us n ow what was happening when the job started to wrap up.
MEM Maintenance Manager (Ancien employé) – Fort McMurray, AB – 22 juillet 2019
The culture is terrible and safety although promoted as top priority, production dominates over all. Management at the Manager and Director level are very manipulative and are not transparent. More to life than a high paying salary. Fort McMurray has come a long way and there is lots for a family to do there though.
