Apprentice Electrician Review under this oilfield company
2nd Year Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 6 June 2018
Working for this oilfield company was mostly a good experience. Lots of work available, with proper pay and benefits. This company seems to be one of the few that treats employees well. Long hours and overtime definitely helps to advance in the trade. Some downsides included: lacking the time to take business on the home front (long hours of work), sometimes getting filthy, and working in the the cold. Having said that, I would like to one day work for this company again, except in the winter.
Good pay, long hours and fast advancement in the trade. You are given tools to succed, and can decide to be home every night, or go to work camps.
Hard on relationships to be working long hours, especially if in isolation
