Hard, Dangerous work. Low moral
Motorman (Current Employee), northern albertaMarch 28, 2014
Working on the rigs was a huge goal of mine to accomplish.
The work was much harder than I had anticipated, but I found complacentcy very quicky and advanced quickly. The money is great but Im looking for a more stable career in the city where I can build a career and be closer to friends and family.

Tough but Rewarding
Floor Hand (Former Employee), Nisku, ABAugust 13, 2013
Hardest part about the job was the long days with little to no breaks. Many people only last days or even hours on the oil rigs, but I found the hardest days to be the most rewarding. My boss and crew made the first couple weeks hell, but as soon as you show them your not just there for a quick pay cheque they treat you like a brother. Overall, my time – more... with Trinidad Drilling was a blast! – less

Great when its busy, Bad when slow
MOTORS - DRILLER (Current Employee), Nisku, ABJuly 9, 2013
Cons: more worried about the bottom line, and investor relations
Been with them for 4 years. Great company, awesome office admins.

They seem to favour certain rigs when it comes to rig repairs, and special want list requests. if your not on one of there "chosen" rigs, your basically working on a "back burner" rig.

Makes it harder to find work in the slow season

Lead & Back-up Tong(Floor-hand) (Former Employee), Springtown, TXApril 7, 2014
Pros: pays well
Cons: long hours
12 hr shifts 14 on and off
make connections and maintaining the rig
managment was great they really took the time to teach
exactly why would do certain things.
the hardest part of any oilfield job is the excessive amount of
hours and lack of sleep as well as being away from loved ones
but the most rewarding part is the $$$$

Stress-free and friendly work environment.
Accounts Payable Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee), Spring, TXJuly 4, 2013
Pros: great work-life balance, friendly and welcoming staff
Cons: outdated systems
The work day started at 8:00 am and ended at 5:00 pm. It was a low-stress environment where staff had their own offices for privacy and to allow work to get done without noise and interruption. I was allotted great flexibility with my creativity and solutions to problems. I learned a lot about the well/drilling industry and how AP operates, particularly – more... with P-cards, where I brought my varied experience to improve the program. The management team was fantastic - all around. My co-workers were always available to help where possible and/or just to have a good chat to. The hardest part of the job was changing old-fashioned mindsets, as I came from much larger, and more technically advanced organizations. Hands down, the normal work hours/work weeks were the best benefits of the company; overtime was rare. – less

The company was a wonderful company to work for. It just wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Floorhand (Former Employee), Frierson, LAApril 23, 2013
Pros: good pay and good benefits
Cons: being away from home
A typical work day consisted of a safety meeting 30 minutes before going to work. Then I went to work after the meeting and I would run the forklift and work with lots of different tools on the floor. I did lots of cleaning and painting. We also moved to different places every few months. My supervisors were great and just made sure that we all stayed – more... safe and didn't get hurt. Everyone that I worked around was great and everyone helped everybody out. The hardest part of my job was being away from home for two weeks. The most enjoyable part of my job was the pay and the bonuses that we would get for being safe and finishing on time. – less
