Long hours. not bad pay once added up at the end of the season, Dying industry
Seismic Helper (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 17, 2015
Pros: You are able to build up alot of pay and food and transportaion is paid for.
Cons: You are away from home for Long periods at a time, working 13 hour days in ALL weather
Was once a good easy oil patch job. Longer hours than most, but fewer on the job risks. If you can dress for the cold and handle the heat, it was a pretty good gig.
When I started you could work nearly year round if you wanted to. Now a days you're lucky if there's 3 months work for the whole year.

Great Company
Accounting Coordinator (Former Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 26, 2015
Due to company buy out my job was no longer needed.

They were great people to work for. Understanding of life outside of work, and not there just for business. Made you feel like you were at home, not just there to work and get out.

Was hoping to go further with the company.
Junior Coordinator (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: camp work, hotel jobs, hot shot, location of jobs
Cons: long rotational work, uncompetative wages
Typical day at work was outside, -40 or below in Alberta. You either got bundled up or went home, there wasn't a whole lot of room for compromise. The management teams were usually pretty great, easy going people.. over the years though the company has down sized and seemingly become unorganized, which is disappointing, I enjoyed working for them.
