Disconnected from Corp. office out of state
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Williston, NDMarch 1, 2014
Pros: disconnected from corp. office
Cons: large company that has protental
I accepted a receptionist position to get my foot in the door. Tervita's mission of responsible energy exploration apealed to me. At the time of my employment the culture was about employee improvement and cultivating skills. However this changed with management change. Due to the corporate offices being out of state managers were allowed to make decisions – more... reguarding their person preferences not on actual skill and productivity. – less

Hard work as a rig hand away from everything
Derrick Hand, Floor Hand (Former Employee), Dickinson, NDNovember 30, 2013
Pros: lots of money.
Cons: very little free time.
You work 14 hours a day for two weeks straight. You make more money than you can at similar jobs elsewhere but you will be away from family and loved ones 66% of the time.

The oilfield is not for the timid.

I enjoyed my time at Tervita, I learned valuable skills that will assist me with my next employment opportunity. Very busy but understaffed and new taks added regularly to keep up with business needs but also making it very easy to make errors and become distracted.

Good Company to work for
Lead Operator (Interim TRD Manager) (Current Employee), Central AlbertaMarch 18, 2014
Typical day is always busy, need to make management decisions all the time and to make sure one is doing the right thing.

Change happens daily, suck it up and deal with it.

I belive i have had good managemtn people above me and i like to belive i am a good manager also.

Co-workers are usually fun to be around, if not make a atmosphere that is.

Hardest – more... part of the job is dealing with change, and adapting to dealing with everyone's problems.

Move enjoyable part of the job is when co-workers or my direct reports remind myself of how good of a job we/I have been doing. Makes you know that you/we are doing the right thing and making the busniess successful and other progression other people to be successful to reach there goals. – less
