HSE/Coordinator /Coiled (Former Employee) – Fort St. John, BC – 11 April 2017
Personally and professionally a bad experience. After 23 years of oilfield experience, I was laid off for the first time last spring. After that, the company decided to purchase another company worth 3+ billion dollars and now has now shut down my facility, permanently
Lots of training and availibilty to be mobile
poor managaement, no more experience employees, no clear direction

Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 5 April 2017
Great place too do an apprenticeship thru as they pay your way. Had management issue which I believe have since been fixed. still have friends that work there. Somewhat boring shop life thru scheduled maintenance programs which become dull and repetitive. Enjoyed the camp work which paid well.

Chief Security officer (Former Employee) – west and south africa – 22 March 2017
The big blue as its famously called is everybody's favorite pick when hiring. once you work here you are sure to get hired by everyone else. the training is over the top and job culture great. the only place i would trade to work here is NASA of Canadian space agency.
it's very useful for a undergraduate petroleum engineer like me to learn more about cementing and know the practical life of that hard career At ras shukier base of SLB , i learned everything about Cementing

Software Developer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 January 2017
I was hired by Finder Graphics as it was being purchased by Schlumberger. Finder Graphics was merged with GeoQuest systems. That job lasted just over two years before all Finder Graphics software development was centralized in Houston.
Finder Graphics was a late-stage startup. Schlumberger is a large multi-national. I leave it to the imagination of the reader to consider the culture clash that occurred.

Wellsite Supervisor (Current Employee) – various – 18 January 2017
It used to be a great place to work but with the new management team it has quickly gone down hill. No communication is given anymore and expected to work in unsafe conditions and threaten jobs if you refuse to work more than 16 hours a day.
Quality Control Manager (Former Employee) – Indonesia – 7 January 2017
