Good Work, Middle management hides everything from High management, Company managed from Overseas and has no Clue
Sr. Warehouseman Wire Line (Former Employee) – Broussard North, Louisiana – December 4, 2015
If you work you always have something to do. Most people in wireline workshop work harder getting out of work than if they would just do their job. Service Quality is the front they put out as the driving force on the equipment and service they supposedly provide. None of which is really done. . But it is just pencil whipped paperwork to show management from Aberdeen Scotland and Customers. I was told by Mid management Quote: just to keep my mouth shut and ride the wagon till the wheels fall off. Unquote Money is good but you dont get a sense of satisfaction by just getting by. Whole yard is run by in house politics and mandates from Scotland management.
Pay, Insurance, and Benefits
Politics, Illegal paper pushing documents. no job security
Expro was a good place to work and learn. They provided a lot of training through various agencies, such as OSHA, IOSH and ATEC. I became very experienced with product certifications and managing API and ISO quality systems.
Blasters Assistant (Former Employee) – Wurtland, KY – February 2, 2015
Working 6 to 16 hours in power plants while using explosives Management are very sneaky and cost me my job because I was injured even after they said I didn't have to turn in any paper work, terminated me saying that I did not turn in the proper paper work Overall was not a good place to work in my opinion
A exciting new experience if you still live at home with parents and have no bills or family to take care of.
explosives technician (Current Employee) – Bethalto, IL – August 12, 2012
32 hours a week and on call 24/7 a week. I do not mind being on call, but the pay is not worth the dedication and hard work i have and continue to give them. my wife and i are expecting our first child and i need 40hrs or more with good benefits and pay for the effort and dedication i offer and give everyday. My current employer cant give me that. My co-workers are young and inexperienced in hard labor. My supervisors lack the leaders ship needed to get my other co-workers to follow them and the hardest part of the job is when i get my check and see that after all the hard work and dedication i put in week in and week out i have nothing to show for it.
i have been trained in explosives, medical emergency and extensive safety training. i also obtained my class a cdl with haxmat.
only 32 hrs a week and high insurance with little pay and not much room for advancement
