Field Operator/Supervisor (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – January 29, 2014
Pros: always lots to learn in all the different departments.
Cons: no set schedule.
-There is no typical day at Fourquest. Various locations, various jobs and always a different crew. -I have learned about plant piping systems and how to clean them(steam, chemical, air, milling). Also how to read piping drawings and locate locate certain parts in plants. I learned that I would like to be a power engineer from working with so many of them at different locations. -co-workers come and go. I try to learn what I can from them and to share my knowledge with them. -Hardest part of the job is not having a schedule. Even on days off, I am not really off, as I can be called in. Looking for a scheduled days on/off job. -most enjoyable part of my job is when commissioning and new plant and being there when the first drop of oil is produced!!
