Work in general
Tool Pusher (Former Employee), Odessa, TXAugust 22, 2013
Pros: when your good your good
Cons: when your bad your bad
A typical day was undetermined, you never knew what any day could throw at you. I have learned that it takes a certain skill to handle people because everybody is different in their work ethic and the needs that arise with families and children. Management is a double edged sword, it cuts both ways and it cuts very deep. There is a need to have comaraderie – more... amongst co-workers but a line has to be maintained for command and control. The hardest part of the job is dealing with employees and main office, while trying to please everyone involved with the operation sometimes people will get the wrong impression of you and be judgmental. That being said you do the best that you can considering all options. The most enjoyable part of the job is the competitiveness and doing better than the others when it matters because money is on the line, but it can be like management it is a double edged sword. The most important thing is the job completion and no one was injured or hurt so they could go home to their respective places and their families. – less
