Working at Quinn

Good experience in general. As with any job, it's all in how you approach your day - if you dread it maybe it's time to find something else to do, if you look forward to it, great always opportunities to learn more right? Things are pretty defined as to job duties not much opportunity to change positions.

Great work Culture

I enjoyed working with everyone, and for the most part felt good. Management seemed very strait forward, but, Relaxed. I wasnt aware that my position was only temporary, was not told this up front, position was not clear, and wages were unclear, from application for position to working phase, was told different things, by onsite management and company management.

Pros

Good experience, forcused on safety

Cons

By contract employment, no job security

Standard work site culture

Pretty standard shutdown/maintenance company. Very relaxed and organized during shutdowns. Maintenance was also relaxed but less organized. Good people to work with.

A good and safe place to work is at Quinn Contracting

A typical day review work requirements, Learned that all people have some requirements to help maintain there day. Management upper is very good at there job. The workplace culture is good most of the time, some of the time floor level foreman needs more training to do there jobs better. The hardest part of the job was to help motivate others to focus on there jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a major task was completed safely and in a timely fashion.

Pros

The people working there.

Cons

Floor level leadership needs more training to do there jobs better.

Place was great when I started working there but went down hill when restructure occured.

A typical day at work consisted of customer service inquiries and reporting. The work culture in the beginning was great but after the re-structure and economy slide due to oil price drop, the overall atmosphere changed in a negative way.

Pros

Flexibility with vacation

Cons

no room for advancement

Decent place to work

Don't expect much from this employer. No additional perks to working here, long hours, lots of favoritism. Only perk is that there is limited travel.
