At Suncor, you’ll be part of an extremely talented team working in a friendly, casual but achievement-oriented atmosphere.
Premium on operational excellence. Suncor relies on the employees to find better ways of doing our everyday work and to constantly look for improvement in how we operate our business. Our employees develop cost-saving measures, implement new technologies, ensure safety on the job, and help keep our complex projects on schedule and on budget.
Run it like you own it. We encourage employees to run the company like they own it — and they do own it. Our long-term incentive programs provide performance-based stock options to our employees — rewards that are directly linked to Suncor’s success.
Importance of values.

Our values and beliefs help us assess the decisions we need to make, provide consistency of actions, and help us build a corporate culture of which we can be proud.
