Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Houston, TX – November 19, 2014
I loved canrig we were all like a family. The best part would have to be the Schedule we worked 12 hours days 7 days on and 7 days off with unlimted overtime. The only bad thing i have to say about this company is that i had to leave them, best job ever hands down.
Productive and excellent working environment with innovation everytime
Mechanical Technician (Current Employee), Montgomery, TX – December 6, 2013
Pros: good insurance
Cons: expensive insurance
I am a Top Drive Specialist. I love my job and the idea of knowing that without our team of hard working and committed mind, somewhere in America and in the world, a drilling operation may be in trouble. I am also back to school and it's so amazing to realize that pure and applied Science (Physics, Maths, Trigonometry...) are helping me to better understand – more... what I have been doing for so long without actually grasping the whole concept behind it. – less
Capital Equipment Technician (Former Employee), West Texas – June 13, 2013
Pros: the wages and benifits were good
Cons: they dont like employees to think or voice their opinions, the only thanks you ever get is your paycheck and sometimes thats not even right
The company was great when i first started. My fellow co-workers were a good group of guys. The main problem i had with the company was after my promotion to capital equipment it seemed that there was a meltdown in management going through 4 different immediate supervisors and 3 different district managers in under 4 months. The company really needs – more... to get on board with trying to keep its employees somewhat happy or they will just suffer the same high drop out rate that they have suffered from in the past. – less
electrical (Current Employee), Magnolia, TX – April 30, 2013
Pros: multiple breaks throughout the day
First I start the morning with what we call a toolbox meeting where we dicuss issues within the area, give updates on job progress, and give the employees a chance to voice what we can do to increase efficiency and productivity. I then begin to look up any parts that may be missing that can keep the job from being completed. Then I go to a meeting with – more... all of the shop supervisor where we updat the shop operations manager of job progress and any part issues we may have. Then I spean the rest of the majority of my day tracking down parts that we need, and supporting the shop employees in any way that I can from helping out with a hot job or getting them a part they may need. Then we end the day by mopping and doing out 6s sweep of the shop. – less
Very little chance for advancement; Poor and inconsistent training
Mud Logging Geologist (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CA – November 15, 2012
Pros: when one works there is a definite schedule that can be counted on.
Cons: poor and inconsistant training; some equipment needs upgrading.
Field work was quite stimulating and most co workers easy to work with. However, very little chance for advancement and very poor training. Some co workers who were training others should not have been doing so as they were not very experienced. Raises not consistent and employee evaluations very rarely performed. Evaluations were what wage increases – more... were based on. Division in CA far removed from corporate office. Very stressful and fragmented. Unless this company's hierarchies change it would not be a wise idea to work for them in any of their departments. – less
