FIELD ENGINEER-PROJECT ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Nederland, TX – July 29, 2015
Very difficult project as management changed mid way through the schedule. This was my first real project management and project engineering opportunities. Hardest part of the job was keeping up with the client changes as revised drawings were not furnished and changes were handled with client provided photos from previously built rigs. Most enjoyable part was learning what it took to be a project manager and project engineer.

Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Pascagoula, MS – March 27, 2015
Signal takes on the jobs other yards shy away from, so expect to be asked to work a little harder. That said you get the tools you need to finish the job, but don't expect it to be fancy. The emphasis is on the end product not the tools that get it there. Very satisfying when each project is completed.

JRA Clerk (Former Employee) – Pascagoula, MS – July 14, 2014
A day at Signal International, I had to work on paper work for the new hires, for the current employees I had to assign permits for them to continue to work. I learned to handle tough comments are remarks, I learned that being only 18 and working with grown adults 7 days a week was a challenge. My management was good, received what I earned. My co-workers were friendly yet bossy. I enjoyed having a 30 minute lunch, being able to have my own desk, and everyone loved to see my face every morning, I also enjoyed getting paid weekly.
Safety, quality, production and all parties happy with job performance.

Working hard. Planning multiple jobs per day per rig safely with productive outcome. Learned something new everyday. Learned various types of coatings. Worked with upper management to plan and execute all jobs. Work close with others to make certain all departments worked hand in hand for the best job for customer and company. Hardest part of job was knowing what was estimated to make certain job was completed based on what was estimated. The most enjoyable part of job was going to work daily, working with co-workers and knowing customer was very happy with the quality paint job performed.
