Productive and laid back environment
Radio Operator/Rig Administrator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 7, 2016
I lived on a drillship for 21 days at a time working 6a-6p shift. Day started with preparing for any crew changes, helicopter arrivals/departures, signing people in and out. Assigning bed spaces for vendors/employees arriving the rig; Answered phones. Prepared travel and payroll for all Atwood employees.
Management allowed me to do my job without any interference. I knew what I needed to do and I was trusted to get the job done with practically no supervision.
I would assist co-workers with questions regarding HR matters, payroll, travel, flight manifest information etc. I enjoyed visiting with my fellow co-workers when I had the time.
Hardest part of the job is being gone for 21 days from home. It did get challenging when we got busy and had to meet deadlines but those were always met in a timely manner.
I enjoyed helping make operations run smoothly and everyone was taken care of and I had no complaints. The sunrises and sunsets on the water were amazing!
No traffic, food was free and I was left to do my job with minimal supervision.
Worked 12 hrs daily for 21 days. Missed lots of holidays due to my schedule.
