Very high pressure. Favoritisms and reverse discrimination.
Worst place to work. No consistency or discipline. Rules always changing. Very stressful work environment. Rules only applied to white Canadians not to immigrants. Languages other than English was spoken on ship floor, made for communication barriers and disrespectful if English is your only language. HR or management did nothing about it. Management and HR favored immigrants and there was no discipline towards them

Was great until the job actually started
They are a decent paying company, but when it came time to actually get the equipment and supplies needed to do the work they took forever to get the ball rolling.

They also did not pay me on time several times, along with paying semi monthly which was super confusing.

good drilling company. has gone down in the last few years
boart longyear is a good place for drillers to get started. the training is very good and you can move up in drilling quickly. unfortunately there isnt much oppertunity to get much higher than that. the wages are pretty good. the benefits are very good.most of the work force gets along very well and the company has a good reputation. the work is hard but worth the money. the companies biggest concern is safety which is a good thing. i have been working for boart longyear for eight years and counting and in that time have received a fair amount of training. i feel though that in order to advance my career now it will have to be at a different company. it is a shame but there isn't much more room for advancement. there is a good safety culture there and a good group of people ther. for this reason i would tell anyone to apply to the company

A real experience
As a dedicated employee, Boart Longyear has allowed me to excel and exceed well beyond expectation. Although working in the field, it does take away from your home life, as expected on rotation, and job stability fluctuates based on contract/mineral cost in the exploration field. Aside from that aspect, I have never been let down, and always encourage others to look to Borat for a career.
Pros
Pay, structure, opportunity
Cons
scheduling, contract work

Decent employer
Good employer, however job security is tied to price of gold, because main offering is exploration mining products. Boom bust industry causes loss of employment at times.
Pros
Benefits, wages, culture
Cons
Boom or bust industry, job security

Would not recommend
Would give zero stars if possible. Was given a job and told to quit the job I had at the time, completed all training and requirements only to be let go without reason before I could even start.

Great group of people
Boart has a great mix of people that work here.. I really enjoy working here. If there was anything that I would change it would be better planning for jobs, as opposed to last minute rushing
Pros
Work hours, management, staff
Cons
lack of planning, leaving things to the last minute and expecting miracles
