They hired a new supervisor under the manager I worked for and it did not work out for a few of us. I was laid off when the oil and gas industry at the time took a dive. It has been known as a volatile industry but I would like to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry despite that reputation
Have been fed nothing but smoke and lies since I got to my district. All loyalty to the company is gone at this point as I was recently informed that what I was told previously doesn't matter and they have to what is best for the company. You express the reason for frustration and they try to offer EAP counselling because they think you have personal problems when the job and inconsistent schedule is the problem. Get told one thing and find out something totally different is happening a week later.
Not much room for advancement. Stuck on same equipment forever.
They make it mandatory that you get your cdl to keep your job. Then there is the constant threat of getting fired over stupid stuff that is out of your control!
The management there looks at employees like cattle. The arrogance of management is like nothing I have ever seen. I thought going in that this company would be ok to work for, but I am looking for another job right now.
The money was never a problem, it was everything else. Not a good schedule if you’re traveling long distance to get to where the work is. Management isn’t bad, equipment is old, having work is hot and miss sometimes.
Orientation in Broomfield Co. Great training and accomodations from cooperate in Calgary. Then in location in Williston you are on your own as a transport driver. If you don't take a vehicle..lol learn how to walk.. disoriented from the beginning...loss of direction to complete the process of getting equipment moved.
Overall my 3 years at this company have not been terrible. Though the original yard o started at closed, and we were moved out to Smithfield. I feel I've had ample amounts of growth within the company but have possibly reached the end of that growth with things.
Show up, do your job and go home. Easy as that. If you show them you know what you’re doing and can do it well, you will be paid well. My time there was awesome although cut short. Mainly because I had a disregard for management. If you can get in here at the williston shop. Stay there until you have your bills paid and start saving that bank
Overall from beginning to current I have had a great experience, met and learned alot here. It did come with its challenges just like any job out here, but had good qualified people around me to show me how to do my duties properly.
