Truly blessed to work for such a great company
Employee (Current Employee), Salt Lake City UtahMay 7, 2013
Pros: invests in properly training their employees, great safety record, great pay
Cons: when the drilling industry slows down there isn't much work
I have worked for Major Drilling for 5 plus years. I have never seen a company invest this much time or money to properly train their employees. The senior management is very involved and truly care about their employees. This is a great company to work for. They have a very strict drug testing program and it is nice to know you are working with people – more... the are drug free. I could not say this about the previous drilling company that I worked for – less

enjoyable job if you don't mind being away from home
Driller (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTDecember 10, 2012
84 hrs per week, 12 hr days for a total of 21 days, 10 days off
I learned a lot however, some managers were disrespectful.
Co-workers were good
the hardest part of the job is starting out as a helper and learning the ropes.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting 10 days off each month.
