Fircroft was just a labor agency but the support you receive is ok, any questions they answered and kept you informed of any other positions. Work life balance was good, as well as free medical, and matching 401K

Good company going through tough times, improvements to leadership and operations must be made to render success in it's current competitive market.
Office politics unfortunately take precedence over actual productivity and winning success.
Definite lack of direction, leadership lacking in experience.
Fircroft is not people centric and the top down communication platform they employ is outdated and ineffective. Currently cutting themselves right out of contention. Uninspired changes tarnish what was once a great entity.
Leadership must own and stand behind their decisions. They must defend decisions, use candor and most importantly not lie about how decisions were discerned.
Chevron as a Construction Representative (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 10, 2015
Professional work place, supporting a major oil and gas company build and reach there goals. worked several long hours days and nights when required. worked along many good colleagues. I look for working again on a great project
Terrible management and communication. You are required to sign-in and sign-out throughout the day so management can add up the minutes/hours worked to determine you have worked your 40+. One afternoon one of the managers said to someone on the legal counsel: Since you arrived at 8:05, we'll just meet you downstairs a little after five. I knew immediately this wasn't the place for me. They counted how many times people went to the restroom. Some supervisors were allowed to sit on the phone most of the day talking about personal things. Others couldn't ask a candidate a question (like, how was your weekend?) without management stating it was a personal call. It was very weird.
Good bonuses/commission. Average salary. Good PTO benefits.
Too many to list; worst company I have ever worked for in the past twenty or so years.
Fircroft was a company in transition from a small organization to medium. Their primary focus was Oil & Gas contingent labor. When the oil prices fell the company experienced severe financial issues that led to a global restructure and the subsequent closing of most of the North American offices. My office was one of them, leaving me without employment.
Senior Document Control (Brown Field) (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 12, 2015
Typical work day is fast paced. I have learned a lot of what the client needs for handover. My co-workers are the best business relationship I have had in a long while. They are dependable, hardworking and a no nonsense team. The hardest part of the job is trying to make sure we have everything we need for handover when almost everyone on the project team has moved on. The Most enjoyable part of the job is when the handover documentation is accepted.
I was able to learn and grow in just a matter of months. I was given great opportunities and took full advantage. I am very grateful for it all because I am a much more valuable employee now than when I initially came in.
A typical work day is to meet and greet with all workers. There is always something to learn in the work place from the workers and they are always readily accessible to explain. I enjoy my conversations with the workers and respect for one another. My co-workers are always there to lend a helping hand. The most enjoyable part of my job is coaching the workers to develop a "pro-active" work environment. The hardest part of my job is being away from the workers to maintain records.
