Are you looking for a phenomenal opportunity to join our mining team as a Heavy Equipment Operator? Do you have an extraordinarily strong safety record, experience with operating equipment and do you want to gain rewarding experience in the oil sands industry? If this sounds like you, and if you would like to join our dynamic team in Fort McMurray, then we’d love to hear from you! You will have the opportunity to become a dedicated contributor to our oil sands mining operations, operating either a CAT or Komatsu haul truck.

You will use your expertise to:

  • Participate in our Journey to Zero safety program by operating safely and driving to conditions
  • Follow our operating standards and procedures
  • Operate various makes and models of haul trucks
  • Complete walk-arounds, safety checks and field level risk assessments and ensure the heavy equipment is running properly
  • Report any necessary repairs to the maintenance team or supervisors
  • Report all incidents, damage and near misses immediately
  • Communicate updates to your supervisor to ensure that you meet all goals and objectives

We’d like to review your application if you have…

Must-haves (minimum requirements):

  • At least one year of experience with operating equipment (haul trucks, wiggle wagon, dozers, graders, excavators) in industries such as mining, civil earthworks, pipelines, sawmills, pulp and paper mills or manufacturing, or highway construction
  • (In your resume, please provide the type and size of the equipment you have operated and length of time of your employment with each company)
  • A High School Diploma or General Education Diploma (GED)

  • A strong proven safety mindset, extensive safety training and a best-in-class safety record

Preference for:

  • Experience in an open-pit mining environment
  • A heavy equipment operator ticket
  • Initiative to seek greater knowledge about the systems, processes and hazards in the working environment, in order to understand not just what you do but why you do it
  • The ability to fix procedures if they are incorrect and zero tolerance for shortcuts, with a strong continuous improvement mindset
  • Motivation to check for out-of-the-ordinary conditions and learn to anticipate potential problems

  • The shift schedule is a six days on/six days off rotation (three days on, three nights on, six days off; 12-hour shifts)
