Long, crazy hours, hectic work schedule, outdoors in all kinds of crazy weather all par for the course
They really need better sleepers on their trucks but all things considered:

Solid company Especially for a young man looking to get started

Oil field/oil field service work isn't for everyone but once you adjust to the 15/6 or 10/4 work schedule there's nothing like it. Going back to a regular 5/2 schedule would be difficult.

Very safe work practice. Be prepared for extreme cold. I have seen guys get frost bite. My boots were rated for -75C. Awesome co-workers who are willing to help get you trained.

Was a good place to work, enjoyed the people I worked with. I left for maternity leave and then stayed home with our kids. I'd recommend them as an employer.

Worked there for quite some time and although you usually run into some pretty good crew members to work with most of the time it’s just a carrot on a stick relationship, you will immediately be promised an easy to make high 6 figure income despite a small salary, this will later prove false as even most supes and operators averaged 90-110k annually if the quarters are busy all year. When it comes to family life it can be very friendly even if you aren’t home often, I say this as they are usually really good with any and all emergencies and life drama that will arise but will also make sure you know it’s an inconvenience (depending on who’s in management. There are better companies and there are worse, if looking to not be at risk for surprise undercuts then don’t work here. Will promise the world, will deliver a puddle.

Great guys to work with but, when you’ve worked over 24 hours straight it’s not worth it for the pay you receive. If you like living on no sleep & small wages unless you’re management I’d say go for it!
Salary if you’re not working in the field and only doing shop maintenance was 1400.00 every two weeks.
Pros
Boot allowance.
Cons
Long hours.

Being awake for long hours to do one job some days (or I should say must of the days) were the hardest part I found. Some of the co-workers felt the same way too.

Excellent place to work. Sharpened my abilities to troubleshoot. Management was really good at letting you know what was happening within the company. The workplace culture was they wanted to perform at the highest level. The hardest part was being away from my family for extended periods of time. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.

A typical work includes long hours from a minimum of 10 hours up to 30 hours work. Not the greatest workplace culture because of the operations people attitude. It's an on call job so get yourself ready for no life and mid night calls!

Trained and evaluated drivers as per provincial standards along with company practices included. I was part of a team that worked well together and had the companies practices in mind at all times but safety was always first when it came to having safe competent drivers.

A call out could be a typical 8 hour shift or could be a 30 hour physical and mental grind . Learned the operation and goals of a oil rig .The management of Sanjel were very focused on safety and efficiency so you always knew the company put your safety first and that all work was well organized,this meant the crews were confident and worked closely together.The hardest part of the job was definetly the long grueling hours but it could also be the most enjoyable part of the job working with a bunch of great people and heading back to the shop for a bbq and talking about what we accomplished that shift.
Pros
Good benefits, good company, good people
Cons
No travel allowance
