Work 13 hours a day and get paid for 12
Head Cook (Former Employee), North SlopeAugust 19, 2013
Pros: it's a job.
Cons: many un-happy co-workers. terrible lifestyle.
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. – more... There is zero follow up for your career.
The turnover is around 300% – less

Kitchen/Housekeeper (Former Employee), Kuparuk and numerous other North Slope campsAugust 8, 2013
Pros: free good foods and good living quarters
Cons: short breaks
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.

No room for advancement , poor pay
Remote Site (Former Employee), North SlopeMay 9, 2013
Cons: disaray, poor management
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

This was not a very good experience for me - definitely not a good company to work for.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), North Slope, AKFebruary 5, 2013
Working for Doyon Universal was an experience that I will probably never forget. It is very unorganized from top management all the way down to the smallest job. I hung on to my job for four years and I don't even know why/
