  1. "The Commerce City Refinery is a great place to work, good pay and benefits."

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Suncor

    Pros

    - Great starting pay, would be hard to find anything in that area that could complete with. - Health and dental benefits were outstanding as well as a pension & 401k. - Coworkers were all great and the USW employees all worked as a family

    Cons

    - The refinery is fairly old and starting to show its age and some units and equipment could use a overhaul. - Plant managers come and go so often it seems like they use this site as a springboard to move up, so not much incentives to spend money on improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Hire upper management that’s been at this facility for most of their career, instead of people who only plan on staying for 3-4 years. They would have more gratification in seeing improvements and wouldn’t be afraid of spending the money needed for this.

    I have been working at Suncor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work environment with great pay, benefits and vacation time. Leadership has a clear direction for the future and the company is relatively stable due to the integrated business model.

    Cons

    Many high performers make for a competitive environment but it drives creativity. Dated systems make for manual workloads but company is currently in process of revamping data systems. Political climate in Canada makes it difficult for the company to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Suncor provides an incredibly valuable global resource and feeds heavily into the economic growth of Canada. This is something we should be proud of and it should be actively promoted across Canada.
