I did a job that required no mistakes and they didn't even pay for wanting perfect. Supervisor care more about his weekend than the job. They couldn't even teach you the perfection they wanted

National Oilwell Varco-----AWESOME!!!

When I worked for NOV, I enjoyed the atmosphere at the Bammel-North-Houston, Breen and N. Eldridge areas. I was hoping for a permanent position, but budgeting required a job description for a permanent position. The staff at these locations were incredible. They worked hard to support NOV, it's outreach programs for worthy causes, and especially during the terrible hurricane's damage and restoration projects for people in need. Some of the staff were affected by the hurricane, but placed their own needs in the rear to help others with more dire needs than their own. A love that surpasses man's understanding. Just AWESOME!!! I love this family at NOV and would go back is they called my agency. Best Regards, Vanessa Griffin-Clay

a hard job

Hardest part making sure no one stabbing you in the back. Warehouse was all guys and they did not want a woman to be their boss.I never tried to push them I was always there to help get anything done even when they were trying to under mind me. Job was easy but had people who thought they should of been picked over me and made my job hard




no free time
