Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 January 2018
meh, not a great environment for the brain that is a fact, let alone one's body. no community or peer support, money driven business, too large for my liking. all together not a good experience for me. it showed me the value in education.
HSE Manager - Canada & Alaska (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 January 2018
This was my first job with the oil and gas service industry. I learned a lot about how to work within a multi-national organization and gained a tonne of experience with the oil and gas industry. With that I thank Baker Hughes for the opportunity.
Department Administrator/Facility Coordinator (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 1 November 2017
My typical day at work consisted of many clerical duties. I ran the front desk at a large shop in Red Deer. I would answer phones, file documents, work with the HSE Manager, personally report to the manager and assisted walk ins
I learnt many things at Baker Hughes. It was my first Oilfield based job. I learned about the inner workings of the company and added experience to my administrate abilities.
Management was always supportive and kind
The workplace culture was friendly but professional
The hardest part of the job was trying to help as many people as I could but only being able to complete one project at a time
The most enjoyable part was being able to connect with individuals everyday. Helping staff with projects and helping out the public as much as I could.
Pump nitrogen Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 October 2017
I was hired on as a N2 pump hauler and operator. One week before my 3 months kicked in with my benefits they stopped sending me on jobs, effectively making it so I'm not making money anymore just sitting at the shop, the day before my 3 months, I am let go without any hesitation or reason behind the issue.
Human Resources (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 September 2017
Don't expect a warm fuzzy feeling from BHGE. They will suck all they can from you, and then cut you when they are through with you. You are just a number. Expect to work long days with impossible workloads and to "Just be grateful you still have a job" GE is replacing all Legacy Staff with their own people. No stability or security, people walk around on egg shells.
Mud Engineer Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 August 2017
Baker Hughes is a good Drilling Fluids Company that sells good products, backed up by good service, with good technical support and good support from management. I would recommend them as a prospective employer.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Leduc, AB – 6 July 2017
Hardworking and great people! Difficult to move ahead since mandatory training has to be done before you can move up, but you can still do the work without the training.... When on shift and the field, you give up having a life - but you're compensated for that and you get more than 2 days off at the end of the shift!
Good company and good benefits, oil and gas in general have no job security not just my company, but I'm looking for an international experience if I find a job with Baker Hughes in Canada will be great
Service Operator (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 June 2017
Management are very approachable and they will listen to what you have to say. Everybody wants to see everybody succeed and no body fail. I have a better view on what goes on down stream on the oil and gas industry. It can be hard being away from for so long in camp or always on the road.
Great Guys to work with. Everbody takes the timto help each other
