decent company to work for but management issues were prevelant
Business Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 1 February 2017
Found the company to have great benefits for medical ect. Vacation on par with provincial labour standards but working enviroment within this division company was extremey stressful and operations manager was not clear on job expectaions during the hiring process. Upon starting the position I quickly found the description i was given not at all accurate to what I was actually doing on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I was not given any training other than a book with some basic procedures.
Day To Day activities. No technology advancements.
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 January 2017
This company was in the process of a merger and was cutting back all resources including contractors. As a result all the existing resources were depleted and work began increasing difficult to make time lines.
Lack of resources to manage the day to day activities.
Field Specialist - Measurement While Drilling (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 December 2016
No job schedule makes personal life hard to manage. Overall the work is pretty good and most people you work with are enjoyable. If there was a set schedule it might not be such a bad job. Lots of travel and being away from home
SENIOR ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 December 2016
This company is an example of how the share holders dictate how a company is to be run to the ruling class in Houston. They do not car about the people, advancement, work culture. Pay is good but management is terrible. This also goes for the local managers, most of those who do not care and are only interested in keeping their own jobs.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 4 November 2016
People you worked with are very professional. If not because of the down turn in the oil and gas industry everyone should still be there. Safety culture at BHI is paramount to everything. If the oil and gas industry recovers I would not hesitate to come back.
Truck Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Clairmont, AB – 18 October 2016
I would recommend this company to my friends and family. My typical day at work would be to load bulker with either sand or cement and drive to different locations throughout Alberta. Complete the job on site and afterwards pack up all tools and equipment in a safe, orderly fashion. During my time with this company, I learned how to operate cement bulker and sand bulker. The management staff with this company was very accommodating within various situations. They were always there to help and answer any questions or concerns that may arise. Co-workers were glad to assist and help out in different situations and work together as a team and answer any questions or concerns that too may arise. The hardest part of the job was locating job site areas due to lack of experience at the time. The most enjoyable part of the job was completing my job assignment successfully and returning home safely.
Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 14 October 2016
I worked a 8 day on and 6 day off shift which was excellent, most days included preventive maintenance programme for all equipment supplemented with any other repairs that may come up during the course of a day. We worked in teams of four which gave us the advantage of combined experience and knowledge to easy perform any task. The group of techs I was fortunate enough to work with made me feel right at home an were never to busy to answer any questions. The only thing I found unfortunate was that being such a big company it was sometimes hard to go through the chain of command to get approval for work being done
Great employee benefits all around a good company to work for.
Supervisor Trainee (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 18 August 2016
I have no complaints with Baker Hughes. I simply want to work closer to home. Working on the road makes time spent with co-workers extensive but luckily all my co workers are easy going and we all work well together.
