Productive, Good people to work with
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TexasFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: busy and stessful at times
I was always busy, managed 2 floors and enjoyed keeping busy. Helping with phones, work orders, maintaining all office supplies, Keeping up with calendars, conference rooms, and travel for the SVP of the Drilling division. Helped HR with planning meetings, training, and entertainment.. I had a great bunch of coworkers and managers. the hardest part of my job was keeping up with everyone and everything that went on, on both floors. The most enjoyable part of my job was my job and my coworkers..

Poorly managed and very unethical work environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 31, 2015
Cons: over worked, underpaid, zero discretion level
I was hired on as a temp to hire, which originally told during the interview process that it would be mostly likely 5 months. That is their "standard" process for HR to approve for your hire. Well just expect for most likely 2 years. There were numerous of employees I meet that said it took 2 years before they were hired on. The department I worked for was so unethical and unprofessional. The executive assistant expressed high confidential information about executives, other employee's information pertaining to terminations, conversations that she "had" to have with HR about employee's job performance. The moral overall is very childish, there is no sense of team work or efforts. Everyone is always up to play the blame game instead of acting as a team and failing as a team. You could have the greatest communication skills one could hold, but it will have no benefit here. Everyone is on their own time and will only do minimal, no more no less. Individuals that hold management positions are very young and inexperienced to manage. Having worked in the past with Senior VPs and CCOs with 15+ years in the oil & gas industry in a management role to coming here was very difficult and trying.

With the industry as it is now jobs were cut having the ones that were left over worked by performing numerous positions as one. Everyday will be struggle and very challenging, in any position. New hires are not properly prepared for work from day one. It would take up to a month the longest I have seen for employees to get their desk phone much less a new laptop. IT would issue new employees a refurbished laptop from no telling how long ago. Until it is approved to purchase a brand new.

ran with iniquity not integrity
employed at facility (Former Employee), clearfield, paSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: good compensation and benefits for area
Cons: favortism and unfair practices are commonplace
The Clearfield, PA plant is a place where rules are for some, not all and favoritism is the only way to advance. They claim to care for their employees but when situations arise where policies and procedures are being violated, it magically "disappears" because the upper management would rather ignore a situation than have to fix it. As long as they are making a profit they could care less how their employees are being treated.

Give it a 3 out of 10
CNC lathe machinist (Current Employee), Plantersville, TXJuly 7, 2014
Pros: if you scrap a part you still have a job.. or if you scrap a bunch of parts you still.... have a job
Cons: no ac, poor management, low pay, low hours, inaccurate prints, poor programming no heater small break room.
Plantersville shop has grown a lot but the management is in the wrong hands, Shop floor supervisors are under experienced rookies that just follow orders from higher up,
Hours were cut back 2 times in 1 month, NO AC.. it's hot. No heat either so winter time is cold...
Management play the favorites game. Most are family any way. Over all.. I'm looming for a new job.

Horrible place to work, turn around and run away as fast as you can!
Admin Assistant (Former Employee), Elmore City, OkOctober 22, 2013
Pros: family friendly hours
Cons: not compliant with osha regulations, unsafe working environment, not in compliance with the epa's clean air act, your vehicle will be covered in overspray within one week of working at elmore city, and management could care less!
Upper management in the Elmore City location are all former Walmart employees with NO oil & gas experience, they are back stabbing, lying, un-ethical people. A very clickish environment, definately a very high turnover rate in personnel, had I known what a terrible place to work, I would have never even left my old higher paying job to be closer to home. Most people are all contract for a specific number of hours, once you reach those hours, very hard to roll over to permanent employee.

warehouse personell READ THESE REVIEWS FOR APPLYING
shipper/receiver (Former Employee), red deer locationOctober 3, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: management from headquarters in leduc
Wouldn't be such a bad place to work if they would replace leadership in Leduc. Op. Managers are rude/condesending/overly demanding/unreasonable expectations for getting work done. At a moments notice will tell everyone to come in on weekend, or change work plans so they can fix problems they created in Leduc. Dumping they're work on you that they are suppose to do so they can leave early for the day.

Turnover is very high because of management. 3 people in shipping position in 6 months. Equipment is shoddy and outdated, won't get fixed because it costs too much, safety is an issue.

Don't apply here. you won't last long.

Bad management; HR doesn't know Jack! Katy TX
Project Engineer (Former Employee), Katy, TXSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: small office
Cons: ignorant hr rep, clueless operations manager
Started off as Offshore Joint Servicess, got bought by Forum. Worst thing to ever happen to a good company. The morale is very bad. Huge turnover because of bad management. People quit left and right. Everyone is trying to do many jobs at one time, because management is clueless. Accidents in the warehouse were covered up, like they never occured. Overall bad place to work. People act childish in the office.

Cycle Counts
Order Puller (Current Employee), Houston, TxAugust 16, 2013
Pros: healthcare and 401k
Cons: new company gone public to fast, rocky managment.
Come in early and generate cycle count. Give to counters and have them count. once counts come back counts are imput into the computer. Generate variance report and send counters back to recount based off the variance. once second count came back I would verfiy the counts are correct. once verfied i would close the counts and provide an adjustment report to management for designation of authority. once adjustment are signed off and all adjustments posted. I help provide aid to operations and assist customers with internal and external needs.
