Equipment Operator (Contractor), Fracturing Dept (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – May 13, 2016
I really enjoyed working at Schlumberger. The way tasks and workloads are divided up amongst the crews and crew members makes sense. Everyone knows what to do because the supervisors are well organized.

SLB is a great company with good opportunities to learn management and technical roles. Unfortunately, people do not come first and engineers and lower level management are under compensated for the time sacrificed to the job.

Columbian chemical is a good company to work for, you will learn a lot about the product they produce which is a by product of petroleum( Carbon Black). A company that delivers it is product on time and has a good service to their customer. a company that believes customer comes first.

Over all the crew that you work with is your family, if that sound like the environment for you then your in good hands, Management went through many changes and overall was great, hardest part was adapting if you have never worked in the oil fields before.
20 year career in heavy industry best darn outfit I ever worked for "bar none"

Extremely diverse workforce all races colors and creeds not to mention ages!!!!!!!(more my thing) lol Awesome management they will find a fit for your level of experience and expand on it if you are willing to put in the effort Great benefits Although there seems to be a high turnover rAte even those that are here for a short period of time show great potential I think due to Schlumberger training Great programs for employee development! Opportunity to travel the world if so desired Write your own paycheck. At least in my department (work as much overtime as you want or as little as you want as you desire! Absolutely in heard of. Continual improvement ( within reason of course) Company is a bit cheAp with resources but pays people well Tools and equipment is not shiny but the people realy do shine!! Concerns with work always seem to be dealt with in a speedy and effective manner. No beating around the bush and no hidden agendas. Management is always willing to listen. I think this is because management is developed from a grassroots level I have thought of leaving but quite honestly I dont think there is much or any better out there
CNC Lathe Operator (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – October 22, 2014
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.
free lunches at the safety meeting, good pay, nice environment, nice coworkers, safe, clean
Completion/Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Worldwide – November 6, 2014
Perfect company to join from university. Good salary, fast progressing and personal development. However, life work balance is badly affected. 2940 working hours a year topped with few month of training is the way above what regular person can outlive.

I liked the on the job safety I learned from the company. Management wasn't always good for communication but I learned a lot from the training and would recommend it to people looking for more training on their class1.
Equipment Operator Trainee (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – November 7, 2014
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.
