      good pay, lots of vacation/time off, if you get in with the right people you can sail on to retirement with little work


      Management only cares about impressing those above so they can climb the corporate ladder; you get ahead by who you know not what you do; leaders are clueless as to what subordinates actually do; leaders don't treat all team members equally; development goals are useless as you are forced to put down what your leader wants you to develop and not what you actually want to develop; leaders/mgrs will stop you from moving within the company if they don't want you to leave the dept even if it's on your development goals; some depts will hold employees to staying 2 yrs while other depts will allow you to move in less time which clearly shows which managers genuinely care about supporting their people and not hindering development; very heavy workload and no recognition for extra effort; lots of lip service with little action/things take way too long to change/progress/be completed; technology is 5 years behind other oil and gas companies; hardly any training to do your job; job description is not what the job actually is; HR provides no support if you need it; money is allocated to wrong areas and therefore wasted; managers often make decisions based on their opinions and don't consult the people who may may truly know better; lack of synergy across the company; overall way too many politics.

        Suncor Energy has been great for me. The workplace culture depends on your team and group and so far mine is exceptional.


        The job security in the Oil & Gas industry is not great. You have to always be aware that your job could disappear through no fault of your own.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.



      I’m moving on to round 3 of the interview process after speaking with the VP and it’ll be with peers. My position would be Insurance Product Manager so the peers would be internal stakeholders (Sales, Engineering, Underwriting, Actuary, etc.) What kind of questions typically do peer interviews ask?

      I have an interview tomorrow for a position as a Fundraiser Specialist for a company that raises funds for children. Any insight or advice to give? I do not have any experience working in fundraising but have worked in sales and have worked in childcare for several years. Thank you!
