Great wages, the 3days,3nights shift work is the worst thing about the job. Your body is always in a sense of transition between days and night. Always starting your 6 days off coming off of nights. Very hard on your body and not good for your health.
Very organized and structured. flexibility with schedules and mutuals, using banked stat days. Very supportive training department. Room for growth and training with other pieces of equipment with pay raises.
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.
Good management, good technical process of work and staff will do its best to implement company standards by prioritizing safety is at top priority. Will Support families by conducting family day with safe administration and management, good process of work and HR staff are very co-operative.
Suncor has a very thorough training program and safety is the number one priority. The schedule is 3 days 3 nights and 6 off. I learned a lot but the schedule was not desirable for me as we were always coming off of night shift.
i real like suncor energy the company is wall balance and treat their employee with respect and rewarded them with good compassion.i real recommend the suncor to anyone that wish to work in oil sends .
Safety oriented top 100 companies in Canada to work for.
Great training and equipment progressive training. 6 six hour shifts work cycle.
Hardest part of the Job was adjusting for night shifts.
Most enjoyable aspect was great employee atmosphere.
Suncor treat their employees well, benefits are second to none but living in Fort Mac, most people don't like. We lived in Timberlea and it work a good area to live in, wee didn't frequent bars either so never ran into the trouble you always hear about.
A great group of guys on my shift that could be always counted on for advice and assistance making it an environment that we could gain experience and knowledge together and grow as a team. The shifts of 6 days on and 6 days off with options of paying or trading days with trusted sufficiently experienced operators on other shifts in order to manipulate off time for very flexible home and family life was excellent. This makes up for being away from home as a commuter or the almost 15 hours per day that was required to get to site, work the 12 hour shift, and return to home or rental accommodations. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to have the operators best interests as the best operators and employees are only treated as good as the less competent being punished and restricted as group when one employee is solely responsible for an incident. I know as management a certain prerogative is to be achieved but employees should be treated on a more personal level. I don't think anyone should be treated special but for management not being able to single out employees that have been hired with absolutely no experience and might not have the skills it will take for the position and to keep them on is creating an unsafe weak link that could ultimately result in an incident that will affect another employees family and wellbeing for the rest of their lives.
Work schedule, great group of co-workers, pretty much family
