Assistant Driler (Former Employee) – Gulf of Mexico, Austrailia, Brasil – June 23, 2016
When I first joined Noble I was proud to be connected to that name. It was the company that was loyal to it people. It was the company that was good for its stock holders. It was not the highest paying company but it was one that lived up to its name. Now all I see is a reflection of its pore management. The personnel on the vessels are some of the best people in the world to work with.
Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Worldwide – April 15, 2016
Great pay and benefits. Mostly safe, people get hurt in spite of all they do, it is a dangerous place to work by the nature of the job.
They will fire you in a minute regardless of what the truth is, in spite of spending thousands on hiring, training and more training. Too many supervisory personnel are insecure and unqualified. They don't care and will hire someone else and waste money. Especially now that the work environment is so tough. You are better off driving a truck. I thought this kind of stuff only happened to other people I was with my previous employer 24 years and before Noble 10 years.
They have a phone number you can call for complaints. Good luck with that (more money wasted).
Teacher (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 12, 2016
I learned how to teach at Noble. When I started teaching I had a choice between Noble and a CPS magnet high school. I was nervous but felt that Noble was the right fit. I was right. I have been challenged more than I thought was possible, but I have grown too. Some of my best friends are my co-workers. I have been able to hone my craft. And, I feel supported and loved every day. I can't imagine teaching anywhere else.
Inspiring students, great support, working and one of the best schools in the country
I don't have a normal work day. I am a Merchant Marine Engineer, i work 21 days on in a DP2 Drillship in the Gulf of Mexico. Typical day we wake up in the middle of the ocean take a look at the sunrise, grab a cup of coffee and conduct our machinery rounds to start the day. I have a to do list from my supervisor full of tasks to tackle for the day. We have a lot of machinery and equipment so as the tittle says every day is a learning opportunity. My co workers and i work together on big projects such as changing water pumps, Fuel injectors, Valve Bridges on EMD engines, servicing R.O. Units, Water Heaters, Air compressors and some plumbing to name a few tasks.
The hardest part of my job is working 12 hours a day for 21 straight days. Its something you get accustomed to after a few days. Its enjoyable living and working with a great group of guys. I just enjoy being part of a good team.
Implementation Engineer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 16, 2015
A typical day would go one of two ways; I either am traveling to a customers site or at a customers site, or I come into the office. Once I get to where I am working I connect to clients servers and complete the whatever requests I have been assigned to. If the assignment is an implementation then I try and complete our checklists for those clients.
Since starting this Job I have learned a lot about linux, wireshark, telephony, and general computer knowledge.
The hardest part of this job is dealing with clients. There are times where the clients are not easy to deal with for many reasons. Some of those are the IT issues that client faces such as restrictions the clients IT puts on their network. This sometimes leads to engagements that should be done in 2 weeks lasting months.

Material Handler (Former Employee) – Butler, IN – October 24, 2014
I was able to run a cell that involved a roll mill and three robots making automotive parts. I learned a lot of mechanical skills and quality aspects when dealing with the auto industry. Management was good at doing things according to procedure. I loved working with my fellow employees. The hardest part was going through the transition when Noble went bankrupt and MultiMatic took over. The most enjoyable part was being independent one my own machine.
SENIOR WEB & DIGITAL DESIGNER, Smith+Noble (Current Employee) – Corona, C – August 29, 2014
This place has really taught me a lot about working independently, getting your stuff done in a timely manner and communication. For the past 3 years I have run the entire web/digital design department.
Productive work environment that provided me with many learning opportunities.
Prod. Worker Welder Hi-Lo driver Quality Tech (Former Employee) – South Haven, MI – January 26, 2013
A typical day I came in went to whatever job I was performing at that time. My co workers and I would enjoy friendly competitions ( who could put out the most parts in an hour). We would help each other out if a problem occurred. I found the management to be friendly, encouraging, and good leaders for the most part. The hardest part of the job was the hours. We often worked 72-80 hour weeks. The two things I liked best were the learning opportunities I was allowed and the great friends I made in the over 9 years I worked at Noble.
