STATION MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Provost, AB29 April 2016
The company was great until FMC Bought Pure energy services. They are a large company that treat you like a number. You are a salary that is expendable, like most large global companies.
Pros
I was the manager
Cons
Big corporation

You could do better
"Warehouse Tech" (Former Employee) –  Edmonton5 March 2015
While the benefits and salary are good, there are so many better places to work where they'd better appreciate talents and personality.

The manager is a hypocrite who smokes a pack a day.

The warehouse supervisor has a Napoleon complex.

The Christmas party is a boozefest, as is the golf day. Those are the only two social events the company offers...sad, considering how much money they make.

If you are looking to get into oilfield work, then I congratulate you. It's a great industry. I'd recommend going to another company.
Pros
Benefits aren't bad
Cons
Supervisor and management are jokes.

Flowback, Completions Senior Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort St John, BC23 February 2016
A typical day consist of waking up for dinner have a bite to eat then heading out for a 12 hour night shift. when at work there is many things my night could consist of from rigging in miles of steel pipe to taking high pressure samples. I also on certain jobs look after the green hands and make sure that they are doing there tasks in a safe manner. I as a senior operator am also responsible for them and any equipment that we use during a work day and am suppose to inform the supervisor if there is any sort of problems.

Well tester/Operator/supervisor (Former Employee) –  Alberta and some BC31 October 2015
If you like to to be tested and pushed to your limits this is for you, great group of guys here and couldn't ask for a better management!!They are there all hours of the day/night and are willing to help you in any situation even personal ones.

Hardest part of the job other then the rig in and out part would be being away from your family and not having a set rotation. you will miss 90% of family gatherings, birthdays, holidays,friends getting together.

Best part of the job would be the money and freedom you will get on your short days off if your smart with your money give it a couple years and you can almost have everything you dreamed of. begin in the bush and seeing the wildlife is another awesome side to this job if you are a hunter you get to find some really good spots.
Pros
money
Cons
long hitches 21- 24 days with 4 days to a week off when busy.

Good job not a good career
E-Line Supervisor, Completion Services (Former Employee) –  Alberta and BC28 January 2016
if all you want is a good paycheck and don't care about having a social life, then FMC Technologies is a good fit for you. The management team is full of people that got to their positions by who they know, not what they know. So expect to have a higher intelligence and better understanding of how to properly run a station.
Have Fun!

FMC Technologies has a strong set of core values that they follow closely as an organization. For me, the key value is Integrity.
Field Service Technician III (Current Employee) –  Red Deer, AB11 November 2015
The service technician position is a challenging job in a dangerous environment. FMC has a strong safety oriented culture and they do everything possible to keep their employees safe. I enjoyed solving the difficulties presented on each job site and felt a great deal of personal satisfaction when the job was done.

Technical and Physical
Senior operator (Former Employee) –  Fort St John, BC3 March 2014
Operating in the Frac Flow Back division is a healthy blend of physical and mental tasks. Setting up and tearing down the equipment is physically demanding while the operation of the testing equipment is mentally challenging. Troubleshooting problems and recognizing the effects/physics of flowing gas/oil wells through testing equipment can keep one on one's toes. All traing is on the job and all essential skills and knowledge is learned while performing duties day to day. Both teamwork and unsupervised work are expected depending on the size of the crew ranging from 2 man to 10+ man crews with day and nightshifts.
Pros
Good people, decent pay, lots of hours.
Cons
Long tours of duty, can be in camp/far from home, isolated work areas.
