You dont get trained properly! , too many white hats ready to stab you in the back, to many safety mesure that will not let you basicly do anything ! Too many unfriendly coworker that will not accomodate any other culture! They dont even let you work and keep complaining to forman and superintendant and of course they will believe all the lie that they areateltttthetellingtthem telling

Typical scab clac company

Do not work here. Top heavy white hats with little to no experience. Full of baglickers in the office and win the field. Company runs the show with minimal care for being paid on time.

Large Multinational company where you are just a number to them but the supervisors you work with are top notch.

Steady work pace without being overwhelmed. strong safety driving culture but not very forgiving. They do show appreciation to their worker in the form of give aways and bbq.

Excellent safety culture

Good safety culture. No security unless your staff. Lots of work opportunities, but are trying to cut cost by hiring local. Cutting out flights. All new equipment


Big company with lots of projects


Trying to hire only locally

Oil field life

Remote locations in camp away from home. Pay is great but a huge disconnect between field workers and management. Uncertainty of how long your job will be there.

OK outfit, would work there again.

OK outfit, still a mushroom enviroment a lot of the time. Going the extra mile doesn't seem to be of any benefit. Nepotism seems to be the norm, good chance of getting pidgeon holed.


Work everyday


Still just a number
