DATA ENTRY IN SAP PROGRAM, FILING (Current Employee), Evansville, INJuly 30, 2014
Pros: getting to know your clients
Cons: not having enough time to produce orders
My position is Order Entry I process PO from clients and put them into our Radius (Pecas) system to be produced. I set up the Item request for quote and process and follow the item thru out the process to being shipped. I have been a CR for 28 years and have had to learn 3 different computer systems. The management we have here are the greatest to work with they listen and we work as a team at our facility. The hardest part of my job is the stress of trying to get products produced quicker than our normal lead time on occasion. Even though our plant is being shutdown I enjoyed working with amazing people thru out from the office to the finishing dept. sad day is when we close for good.

Procurement Assistant (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OkOctober 6, 2013
Pros: expanding my knowledge and satisfaction with my job well done.
Cons: contract position - no benefits, not permanent.
Was a great learning experience in the Supply Chain Area working with the Buyers. Learned a lot about the oil and gas business as well as the pipeline and regulation areas. Most of the co-workers were wonderful people, but as in any office a few harder to get along with. Hardest p0art of the job was the unreal expectations of the new management. there are times when a 3 day turn-around is not possible. The most enjoyable part was the interacting with the various customers, vendors and co-workers to accomplish my job responsibilities.

Oilfield Consultant (Former Employee), Casper wyomingMarch 16, 2013
Pros: strive for excellence
Cons: some supervisors are idiots
However they give one bad apple a supervisor position and totally ruins a good team. I dont understand how they cant figure out that all the good consultants are leaving cause of one Superintendant. Must of had a turnover of 12 people that i know of. They should monitor their supervisors better.
