NOT a good company to work for...
Geophysical Analyst (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 13 January 2017
Part of the petroleum group.
Typical things for a day at work:
-pick arrival times on waveforms, process them to find locations and their characteristics
-could be sent to the field at the last minute
-field work consists of setting up a bit of software, and classifying waveforms for 12+ hours/day, in an uncomfortable wireline truck
-lots of favouritism
-do not take responsibility
Hardest part of job:
-Long hours of work, staying motivated to work for a company that doesn't care about you (CEO told us we were all replaceable, managers blame others)
-Last minute decisions on what you'll work on, and when/where you will work
-Negative work environment
Large amount of overtime, good job for about a year (then you should move on)
Long hours, low salary, poor work environment, management, lack of training, poor work practices/ethics, high turnover rate
