Uncertain Culture - Senior leadership has lots of turnover
Inventory Manager, Canada (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 21 August 2017
It was great working with Weatherford, but there are some serious challanges. Senior leadership is changing quite often, that leads to the change in direction quite often. This helps create uncertainty in teams.

Manager (Former Employee) – Canada, Alberta – 16 June 2016
The environment is very disorganized and quite mismanaged. The majority of management lacks basic understanding of values of business processes. Politically challenged environment. Poor business culture. All major decisions are driven by politics and careers. "The ladder is very crowded" at the top. Teams at the bottom of the "food chain" are pleasure to work with. A lot of talented people.
Good Benefits. There are many tallented people
Politcally challenged and is not looking forward environment. Mismanaged.
Field Sales and Service Rep (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 16 June 2016
Some short days, and some really long days. You could go out in the morning, release a packer, and be home by noon. Other days you go out on a Monday and return on a Wednesday with no sleep. Hardest part of the job would be long strenuous hours, however on the flip side you could be out on location for a day before you were even needed. Great group of people in both the field and the office.

MWD Field Specialist IV (Former Employee) – Various – 20 April 2016
A typical day of work includes preparing reports and data for clients. I learned to troubleshoot tool failures and equipment issues. Working with rig crew as trouble free and transparent as possible. Management worked well with employees, listening to concerns and fixing them. Co-workers were always great. The ones that had issues got weeded out and moved on to other employment. The hardest part of the job is an unexpected tool failure. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid for the enjoyable time of work.
Base Salary every month for being on call at any time.

Working with Weatherford was a privilege, I've learned a lot working with Weatherford, taught me how work in Oil Industry, gave me courage to face other Oil Industry and gave me knowledge working on CNC Machines, operate overhead cranes, forklifts. Working with Co-workers in Weatherford was a little bit hard because of others cultures but for a awhile, made friends and made my work a lot easier because of their kind to help others with work problems. the most enjoyable part of my job is that i got to learn new things with cross-training on different tasks.

The day usually starts off with a meeting reviewing the details of the previous shift after which a walk round is done to make sure all equipment's are in good working order. During the day, maintenance on equipment's are done as necessary.
During the job, i learn to be time conscious and also pay attention to details. the co-workers are very helpful and they do not hesitate to answer or ask questions if need be.
