Great for newbies to the industry.

A typical day working at Dril-Quip was like high school. I worked in a department with predominantly female workers. Some were childish, easily intimidated and highly competitive. In the time I worked there I saw about 35-40 people come and go. It was worst place I've every worked. The atmosphere was boring and slow. Management was horrible and lacked knowledge to lead and manage resources. The supervisor lacked leadership skills and knowledge to assist employees and rarely held those who did not perform well accountable.
Majority of the workers had poor work ethics, couldn't get to work on time or had tons of excuses for why they could not do their jobs. As result, the hard workers had to pick up the slack.
Most of the tasks are so simple, a child could do them, but they made things so difficult. Team work was sometime impossible. There was very little training besides weekly safety training. No standard operating procedures to follow, majority of training was hearsay.
If you have good work ethics or standards, don't work here. If you do, get your knowledge, experience and leave. Quickly!!
