Productive and Work Out Opportunity
MATERIALS COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Del Carmen, PRAugust 9, 2015
Pros: I have gained a lot experience and I have received good benefits from my Company.
Cons: I am away from home.
I enjoy my working shift everyday as I have very good co-workers always available to support when receiving cargo shipment and put materials away from main deck and store them in my warehouse properly. Deck supervisor is also a good support when offloading and back loading materials, I enjoy working with him as he is always open to hear ideas and suggestions for better handling of materials. I have learned IFS software for my warehouse control and I consider I have full management of the same. Also I have gained a lot of experience of this 6th generation Rig I am currently working as this Rig is huge and therefore I have learned a lot about its equipment and spare parts for the proper operation and maintenance. I have a very good relationship with all department supervisors which makes my job easier. A hard part of my job would be that I am away from my family 28 days but at the end of the day I think it is worth it as I see them happy for everything we have got because of my job. I feel very proud of myself and the job I am doing.

I am a humorous nature, always want to learn, and discipline in work
Assistant Driller (Former Employee), Vuntao/VietnamAugust 11, 2014
I am a hard worker who is always ready to work in any weather and in any situation, safety and security as well as teamwork is my priority in the work, because I realized that just made a little mistake will be very detrimental for many people especially detrimental to the company of stout terms, I also have the trait. disciplined, honest and always wanted to discuss with the team before doing a job of work, I also have to educate especially the nature of the sailors who had worked closely with me, my one concern is that the company always keep the equipment in good condition. I can also speak English well. besides that I also have experience as an Assistant Driller more than 15 years, I also have experience in various types of rigs including Jack-up rig type Conventional and Cyberbase, Drill ship and Cyberbase conventional type, and also NOV system.

Great rigs, but difficult bosses unless you fit into thier click.
Roustabout - Job (Former Employee), Gulf of MexicoJanuary 30, 2013
Pros: money, paid insurance and travel
Cons: everything else
I am from a big city and not from the backwoods, like most of the people on the rig I was assinged to. Racisism is rediculous out thier, both ways. I hope you are obsessed with football if you try to work thier 'cause thats all they talk about, that and gambling. I have a family and dont have time for kissing a** and football, and I dont gamble with my kids money. Needless to say they got rid of me as soon as they found that out. Absolutly NO job security. They talk a big game during the interview, but at the end of the day they don't care if you starve or lose everything you have. If you have a good job be thankful, because they will black list you from the industry. I'm screwed. Oh yea and they don't have patience to train anybody that hasn't grown up in the industry, if they need to learn new terminology, they had better study for it.

Challenging environment with a good safety culture
Crane Operator (Former Employee), Gulf of MexicoDecember 1, 2015
Pros: 3 weeks off at a time, good insurance benefits and retirement
Cons: Inconsistent communication on my rig, being away from family for 3 weeks at a time.
The hardest part of the job on my particular rig was a need for better interdepartmental communication. The best part of the job is meeting new and interesting people from all types of backgrounds. and of course the time off is a big plus.
