Engineer-in-training (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – July 14, 2016
lots of training, quality training, focuses creating a work life balance. Only place i have seen that encourages dating internally...weird, not a fan of the idea..but probably a strong business plan, if you have a married couple working there, the company only has to pay for one relocation. if you don't fit in their idea of a perfect box, you will find yourself unemployed.

A great place to work with fantastic benefits. Show up in the morning and have a job meeting with the boss. go out into the yard and grab your unit to bring in and inspect. follow the inspection sheet guidelines, order parts if needed and get her done by the book.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – February 25, 2015
Schlumberger oilfield services is a multi-national oil servicing company. They have a diversified network of staff from virtually all parts of the world. Working with Schlumberger obviously afforded me the opportunity to travel wide and interact with people of different backgrounds and cultures. I learnt to understand the nuances of different ethnicities and respect their boundaries and ethics while successfully working with them as a team. The compensations from the job was very encouraging however, the job is very demanding depending on ones role. This is why it may be usually referred to as a 24-hour lifestyle- meaning one could be called upon anytime as an employee to render service for the company.
20 year career in heavy industry best darn outfit I ever worked for "bar none"
Industrial Mechanic (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – May 12, 2013
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

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.

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.
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.
