Stress-free and friendly work environment.
Pros: great work-life balance, friendly and welcoming staff
Cons: outdated systems
The work day started at 8:00 am and ended at 5:00 pm. It was a low-stress environment where staff had their own offices for privacy and to allow work to get done without noise and interruption. I was allotted great flexibility with my creativity and solutions to problems. I learned a lot about the well/drilling industry and how AP operates, particularly with P-cards, where I brought my varied experience to improve the program. The management team was fantastic - all around. My co-workers were always available to help where possible and/or just to have a good chat to. The hardest part of the job was changing old-fashioned mindsets, as I came from much larger, and more technically advanced organizations. Hands down, the normal work hours/work weeks were the best benefits of the company; overtime was rare.
