Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) – Sulphur, LA – December 6, 2017
A typical day at work for me is, to come in and immediately go through my email and print out all that is needed of me to do. Then I start working on what is needed for me to, such as data entry, making phone calls, filing. I make sure that what is needed of me to do that day is done and complete at the end of my day. This is my first big girl job, so the whole experience with Furmanite has been a learning experience. Which I love, I love coming in everyday and learning something new. I want to grow where ever I go to work. Everyone here is nice and willing to take the time to help and teach you, so you have a better understanding of what you job entitles. The hardest part of the job, I guess for me is dealing with vendors or anyone on the phone that is just being super rude and being hard to handle. With that I learned how to handle those people and not get my feelings hurt. The most enjoyable part at Furmanite has been the experience, learning new things everyday, and the women I work with.
Hot Tap / Line Stop Technician (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – June 19, 2015
Lots of drive time to get to work sites. I had the opportunity to learn how to manage others on new plant construction and provide a service that is ever changing. Management is lacking communication with workers. The hardest part of this job is not being able to plan anything. It is a 24/7 service company, but the poor scheduling makes family live hard to plan. Good pay with decent benefits.
Terrible corporate management and nearly nothing for work.
NDT Inspector (Current Employee) – Hobart, IN – December 16, 2014
Typical day at work was to call into the shop and would be told not to bother because there was nothing to do. I didn't learn a whole lot that I didn't all ready know. The management changed monthly and most in which in the local office were overloaded with daily duties. There were only 5 coworkers out of 20 that have stayed during my duration of employment. Most in which were great technicians. Hardest part of the job is getting a call to work. Then when you do, the salesman never have enough info to fill out work orders and do your reports at the end of the job. The best part of this job was that my operations manager was the best I've ever had and the guarantee that I would be paid whether I worked or not.
Guarantee of pay without working.
Terible salesman and terrible corperate management.
