Pros: free food, great gym
Cons: long work hours 12-15 hours/ day. little time at home.
A day at work is life on an oil rig. Monitoring data from the oil well and making calculations of depth, pressure and flow rates. Analyzing rock samples.
I learned about oil well drilling, geology and oil rigs.
Management was great.
Some coworkers were great people; reliable, hardworking and upbeat while other coworkers were not.
Hardest part of the job was being away form home for 2.5 weeks or more at a time and being home for only 1 week at a time.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the excitement and adventure of flying out to an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
