This was a good company but things changed depending who you work for. I think the company cared about safety but didn't always work safe.

Pros: healthcare
Cons: weather
14/14 rotation
I learned that safety does matter.
My co-workers were great as we worked as a team to accomplish our goal. The hardest part of the job is the weather too cold or too hot. I enjoyed the days off with my family.

Good company - tough work rotation - great pay
Floorhand (Former Employee), Casper, WYFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: rate of pay
Cons: work rotation 21 on and 10 off
I enjoyed working for Trinidad. I was laid off due the cut backs relative to the falling oil prices.

I would have preferred to have worked a 21/21 or 14/14 rotation but the job required 21/10 rotation. That was tough in Artic weather conditions.

The pay was great and Trinidad took care of the employees.

managment was great they really took the time to teach
exactly why would do certain things.
the hardest part of any oilfield job is the excessive amount of
hours and lack of sleep as well as being away from loved ones
but the most rewarding part is the $$$$

Stress-free and friendly work environment.
Accounts Payable Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee), Spring, TXJuly 4, 2013
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Cons: outdated systems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.
