Don't count on working for long
Motor Hand (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB13 May 2017
The money was great, the "senior" field employees always knew when hands were on drugs, but it was never dealt with. Witnessed many hands going out to their vehicles on break just to smoke a bowl.
Coordinates don't communicate well. No job security, if you don't do drugs, you won't last long, because you won't fit in
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Unsafe work environment

Okay if you want to make quick money
Motor Hand (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB7 May 2017
Precision can be a good company if you are young and eager to make money fast, then get out and use that money after to get a real education. The drug and alcohol abuse while on lease is ridiculous as well as the way the field employees are treated when they go into the office. At least you'll come home with stories, hopefully your fingers and toes as well.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Lots of debt

We work hard and get rewarded for it, there is always somebody willing to teach you something and you learn every single day.

Management believes wholeheartedly in working safe and getting home to see another day, Their modo, "its people, Its personal" goes a long way.

I recommend Precision Drilling to anyone looking for a bold dynamic workplace to start a long lasting safe career!

Avoid at all costs!!!!!!!!
Loader operator (Current Employee) –  Red Deer4 September 2013
I was called to go to work for these guys. So I packed my stuff and left for red deer. Upon arrival I find out that :
1). We weren't hired we were given the opportunity go through their training at our expense
2). Once through the training you are not told if you have been hired our not.
3). You are now on a call in as needed.

So after almost 4000 Kms, $1500 and 6 weeks without a call. I am now broke and stuck in Calgary. They have screwed me over. They claim there isn't even any shop time.

One positive thing our trainer WH. Was great, he was the best part of the whole stinking mess

I would avoid these guys the are just fishing for talent.
Pros
Trainer WH
Cons
Everything
