    Schedule
    Pay grade scale lower than other sites

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solving schedules and pay grades to better align with contractor pay and other sites pay will greatly reduce staff turn-over.

    I worked at Syncrude full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to work and gain knowledge and experience. People are very friendly and are willing to help out. Managers are willing to give you paid overtime, if you need it.

    Cons

    Different teams seem to have certain issues with one another maybe because of the salary difference.
