Driver (Former Employee), Labrador City, NL – June 16, 2013
Worked with company transporting workers around job site. To and from airport. Worked with great management team and safety was a priority at all times.Hardest part of job was winter conditions on gravel roads with full load of workers and slippery conditions with many hills and turns. Keep yourself alert as to conditions of the roads and block out – more... noises from workers being transported.Enjoyable past was getting workers back to camp safely and taking them to airport for their turn-a-rounds for days off. – less
This company likes to dump its senior workers for those they can get cheaper!
Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee), USA – December 26, 2012
Pros: family activities
Cons: long hours, no gratitude for job well done, physically demanding, low morale!
Worked for this company as a top rated Executive Assistant for approximately 20 years. I had watched this company through the years treat their employees as they got older shabbily. If you are over 45 and especially a woman watch your back they will find a way to get rid of you. Experience means nothing and neither does your knowledge. Myself and two – more... other women in my area were laid off for no apparent reason and when you asked why they could not say it was due to any type of job performance. We had simply become expendable due to our expertise and our salaries. Want experience in your field then work there after you get what you need from them and then move on to a better company. – less
Global Company with a big reputation (unjustified)
Team Leader/ Mobile Plant Operator/ Trainer (Current Employee), WA – February 21, 2014
Pros: lifelong friendships developed
Cons: the culture being nurtured by the majority of management personel
Workmates respect for one and other is predominately evident on a daily basis, with a willingness to learn exhibited by those less experienced matched by gratuitous mentor-ship from the more well traveled. Unfortunately this free exchange is not matched or even aspired to by the 'leadership" groups that I have encountered.
Great, faced paced employment. Very team oriented.
Plant Operator/Miner/Loader Operator (Former Employee), Boron, CA – February 18, 2014
Pros: healthcare, hours
I operated heavy equipment and worked 10-12 hour days. Management was great and I learned alot of on the job training. I am a very highly dedicated employee and have great attendance. I would still work there, but I had to move back to Washington State due to an illness of a family member.
Mechanical Fitter (Current Employee), tom price – January 26, 2014
Pros: being home every night with family
Cons: long hours
learning about new equipment and fault finding skills . working with a large crew of maintainers with different ideas and skills. the roster is ok ( 4 on 4 off 4 on 2 off ) but having to travel such long distance is a disadvantage . I have taken the role as a apprentice trainer( hands on) for pump rebuilds etc
