Employee (Current Employee), Salt Lake City Utah – May 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

Starting out as a Helper trainee working up to a trained hand. responsibilities such as mixing mud assembling tubes and putting core samples into boxes and marking them. when the weather is good, the day is good and vice versa.

Driller (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – December 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.
