Great Benefits and Great Culture and work environment. Great money to be made. Very patient staff and strong balance of both professionalism but interpersonal skills. Sometimes work load can be overwhelming and also sites and weather conditions make or break you. Great opportunity for some but not all.

CNC Lathe Operator (Former Employee), Nisku, ABOctober 22, 2014
Pros: free lunches at the safety meeting, good pay, nice environment, nice coworkers, safe, clean
Cons: loud, noisy, physically demanding
I enjoyed my time here. My trainer was patient and kind, I enjoyed the work. They even built me a change room as I was the only female working in the shop! The life/work balance was really good. The benefits of working for such a large company was great.

The work itself could be physically demanding but I enjoyed that immensely.

Great but challenging
Well Testing Technician (Former Employee), Hassi MessaoudJuly 14, 2014
Pros: trainings
Cons: long rotations
When you work for SLB, you have to dedicate yourself to this company, forget about everything you have and just devote yourself for your job otherwise you will be unsuccessful.
I learnt how to be persuasive, hard worker, and keep on trying until either you succeed or you broke down.
Management is in between, they just look at the bottom line.
Co-workers – more... are among the worst I have seen, they never share.
The hardest part of the job is to adapt to the system.
The most enjoyable part of it, is when you quite. – less

good people, very unorgonized
Instrument Technician Apprenticeship (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABDecember 31, 2013
Pros: everyone was very friendly
Cons: unorgonized, made it hard to do work
You would walk into the building and you would see everyone have a smile on their face and a cheery attitude. My co-workers were very understanding and taught me effectively and explained what was happening with the object we were constructing or testing. Management was going through a change, so everything was left unorgonized and a big mess. This – more... also was the hardest part of the job, because there was no set Manager or supervisor. But the people were easy to talk to, so if there was a problem it could get dealt with effectivly. – less

work and fun
System Engineer (Former Employee), work at Schlumberger EgyptOctober 20, 2013
A first thing to do is to check mail to see if a server has send an error notification, then check log for all servers and disk storage to see a warning or fatal error if a major error exist we begin to deal with it immediately by our team . after the daily check , I open the web to take the users ticket ( Intouch tickets) and solve them.It is a good – more... thing to learn how to manage your time to deal with all problems in a way to be sure that things done 100% in the right way without errors,
the preferable part that if a problem appears, all the team deals with it together to eliminate any possibility that an error occur. The hardest part of the job is when we plan for total shutdown of the center to do an upgrade (software or hardware) that continue for more than one day in a weekend, and the most enjoyable part is that we always install the latest technologies for servers or big data storage. – less

Terrible unless you are an engineer
Wireline Operator (Former Employee), Nisku, ABJune 6, 2013
Pros: good pay in busy winter months (3 months per year)
Cons: no respect given to anyone other than engineers
Worked there for 2 years as a Wire line Operator. No chance of advancement unless you were an Engineer. Engineers that would screw up or injure themselves would be promoted while there was no room for advancement for operators.

Always worked with rookie Engineers that would have no clue in their job but were too "smart" to listen to anyone that was – more... not an Engineer.

Had to fight to receive bonuses that were earned on jobs. – less
