Derrickman to Rig Manager (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 21 August 2017
Has gone down hill over the years, the small company love is gone. Now your just a number. They don't have the work they used to anymore and the wages have dropped big time with retention bonuses gone.

when you're busy, life is good. you miss out on a lot of family events. just as the oil patch culture is, they expect you to always put work first. its a busy life style and perfect to make and save some quick cash

Sometimes long hours, sometimes not seeing eye to eye with the people you work with but generally a safety minded hard working bunch of people. Simple new hire orientation, fair wages and benefits. No ball and cup games. You get what you give.

Just like any company there are good points and bad. In my experience the good outweigh the bad. Equipment is always maintained and getting supplies for the rig never a problem. Crews although difficult to keep at times seem good and get along well together. The work environment seems to push safety and I found that management set a standard that the rig managers tried to follow at the rig. All in all, I enjoy going to work in the morning and also coming home at night. - I've learned to be a little more patient with people - Management sets a very high standard but are always there to help - Co-workers are good but tough to keep as work is very unpredictable. - Hardest part of the job for me is trying to keep up with the paperwork. - I enjoy teaching new workers although some can be a real challenge.
Positive, safe work environment, getting days off never a problem
Feels like Eagle is too big and employees are slowly becoming numbers.

they paid good hourly rates, were stingy on travel time and incentives. they pretended like they cared for safety but right from the toolpush all the way down you knew that wasnt a concern it was just to get the job done. i guess you could blame that on cnrl because eagle at suncor was a much safer operation

Good company to work for, good benefits. Work is usually steady. They are willing to work with you to get you on a rig that will work out for you. The safety of their workers is a top priority for Eagle. Arrive on location at 6;45 get changed do safety meeting be ready to start by 7:30

Roughnecking on a service rig is tough work but it is a great first job in oilfield services. I learned a lot really quickly and was introduced to the many services that are required to keep an oil well functioning. I was very happy with the pay but I realized that I wanted to become an operator. With the money I made, I put myself through trucking school and obtained my class 1 license. All in all, Eagle is a very good company and I was very happy with my experience there.
