Production Supervisor (Current Employee), Odessa, TX – July 24, 2014
Pros: good environment to work at.
Cons: unorganized, somewhat stressful
A typical day at work for me would consist of many things. For example checking in on production orders, making sure we will be meeting deadlines, doing a walkthrough of the shop to see what operation or step we're on certain jobs, entering production time in SAP, approving payroll time, having a safety meeting in the morning, looking ahead to prioritize – more... the jobs\work coming in. I have learned a lot here from working out in the shop floor to coming up into management. I have many good employees that work with me which makes my job somewhat easier. The hardest part of the job for me would be dealing with upper management it’s not as organized as I thought it would be. The most enjoyable part of the job for me would be seeing the end result of what we manufacture. From my employees taking pride in their work, to the quality, to the time it took to complete, and most importantly customer satisfaction. – less
Poor Management, Lack of following safety protocols
Field Service Technician (Former Employee), Carmichael, Pa – July 21, 2014
Cons: management, safety management, favoritism
I was evaluated for my performance from a manager who has never been out to the rig sites to see me work. I went 3 months without air conditioning in my company issued work truck, during the summer months, I would be out on sites for sometimes up to 40 hours. I repeatedly brought the issue with the truck up with my supervisor and he kept telling me – more... the trucks will be in within a week or so, well a truck never came, well new trucks did come in but they were issued to the mangers and the people who work in the office, which mind you none of them used them for work, they used them to drive back and forth to work in the office all day. As far as safety matters go, sometimes I would get home off a 30 hour or more job and get a call to go back out within 2 hours. If I stated it was not very wise or safe to get back behind the wheel becauseI've had no sleep. I would get written up or laughed at with my supervisor telling me to "suck it up, you've been in the Army, you should be used to this." – less

Great benefits, great salary. Don't plan on advancing in this company if you are over the age of 35 or came from one of the companies that were merged with Cameron. Inexperienced, unknowledgable people with the "piece of paper" seem to be the backbone of this company.
