Accounts Payable and Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TX – July 2, 2013
Pros: great opportunity to advance, free training.
Cons: could get very stressful and many employees were replaced.
I enjoyed working at National Oilwell Varco. They offered many classes to advance in my field I worked in. Management was very helpful. Learning the new software JD Edwards was very interesting to me and I was able to hands on train and work with the inventory to learn the details of our products and every step of how made. Very interesting job.
Cons: sometime they work you too much; not much time for personal life.
N.O.V. is the largest manufacturing company in oil/gas by far. This company believes in cross training it's employees so that they can be ready to assume any position that needs to be filled within the company. This is beneficial for not just the employer but also the employee, as you become a bigger asset as you learn.
