Laid back environment with friendly people & good food
Billeting Clerk/Commissary Clerk (Current Employee) – Prudhoe Bay, AK – October 11, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know people on a daily basis. I enjoy staying busy, this job has a lot of down time and I just can't sit and do nothing. In this, I look for materials to read or occupy my time cleaning and doing other things,
Good company to work for if you want a foot in the door on the North Slope
Kitchen Helper (Current Employee) – North Slope, Alaska – September 17, 2015
Doyon is a good starter company to work for if your wanting to be a cook very easy to move up, word of advice start out as a kitchen helper so you know the whole dishes situation. The last thing you want is a mad dishwasher.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Carrizo Springs, Texas – August 25, 2015
Good job but too far to travel from home. Too far from family to be gone for two weeks at a time. Management needs improvement, co workers were good hardest part of the job was some of the post were isolated and worked alone for 12 hours shifts.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – north slope, ak – August 21, 2015
I did like working on the slope as a housekkeper. It keeps your busy but it does make you be away from your family. They put a huge load on each housekeeper when there short handed mamagement tryes to get people to stay longer. They pay was the nice thing.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Prudhoe Bay – September 28, 2014
I got the call to work up there after years of attempts at getting into the company. I had a fantastic resume, so I decided to give the slope a shot. When they called me, they told me they needed me ASAP and that I wouldn't be able to give my current job a two week notice. I didn't care for that, but at the time, I wasn't about to turn down a job I've been trying for, for years! Then I had to work the first two weeks in Fbks, because of the weather situation for flying into Deadhorse. I had a great working relationship with the folks at the Fbks office, but as soon as boots touched ground on Prudhoe, it all went bad. I was warned by several people in management about the supervisor who would be in charge of us, but I never listen to that . I'm a person who likes to make those decisions on my own. Well, I should've listened. LOL...she was the worst supervisor I have ever encountered in my career!! She screamed at people like a drill sergeant, called us names, treated the females the worst especially, got angry when her coffee wasn't waiting for her in the morning, (not my job), and proceeded to tell us all how she was going to go home after the job was over and sit by her pool and get stoned. At one point, she actually followed two of us into the ladies room and flipped out on us because she thought we were talking about her! She was insane, to put it literally. The unprofessionalism was incredible. The worst part was that the project managers AND engineers all watched her treat people like this and did NOTHING to stop it My whole outlook was soured at that point and it wasn'tmore... long before I got laid off from the job, not for a poor performance, but because of technical issues on the project. I was never so happy to get on a plane in my life! My advice to all of you is this....make sure you are well aquainted with the super of a job BEFORE you get on that plane!!! I walked out on a perfectly good job here at home to go to that situation. Never again.less
Kitchen staff (Former Employee) – North slope – June 12, 2014
This was the worst company I have ever been apart of. Working on the north slope is great, the people I worked with were wonderful people. But the big wigs and the HR people from Doyon are pathetic. They treat their people horribly. Employees are toilet paper 100% disposable. The turn over for Doyon is about 5 a week. Don't believe me check the hiring pages Doyon is NEVER. Fully staffed. The pay is sad for the work you do. But for someone like me who had no choice at the time my family needed me to take the job even tho I has not made 11 dollars an hour in 15 years. I had no choice. No room for advancement they do not take care of their female employees on the slope they are just not a good company. If your desperate I understand but protect yourself document everything that happens to you and keep looking for employment else where. Don't plan on planting roots with Doyon it won't happen. Future employees beware!!!!!!

Head Cook (Former Employee) – North Slope – August 19, 2013
Mean managers that do close to nothing but antagonize the staff. Very few fresh ingredients to cook with. No ability to communicate with HR for a transfer. Working at the North Slope is very difficult.
There is a take it or leave it attitude with supervisors. Company lies about re-imbursement for travel and training.
The training is non-existent. There is zero follow up for your career. The turnover is around 300%
Kitchen/Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Kuparuk and numerous other North Slope camps – August 8, 2013
I was in the Kitchen doing numerous Kitchen duties but I was also doing Head Housekeeper duties too. There wasn't really a hard part of the jobs because I was always learning something new and gaining new work experiences.
Remote Site (Former Employee) – North Slope – May 9, 2013
Management and especially HR are a mess they have no clue who, what is going on. Orientation pay $11 per hour and you get paid two hours although the process take most of the day. They are a cheap paying entity and there is very little room for advancement.If you are really stuck this is the place for you.
Had an experience with this outfit which was similar at the ConoccoPhillips towers, the managers suck, ignorant and are on the edge of being reported to EEOC for their underhanded discrimination. Doyon Universal seem to think that being a native corporation that they are untouchable as they have already had a case against them and would expect more in the future
