Catering Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – May 17, 2018
Working with NANA management was really nice. They are really caring about their employees. There is no chaos at the work place and everything organized very well by workers and management. They also provided us with multiple trainings for safety and service.
Management heavy, control and command style management
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Prudhoe Bay, AK – May 5, 2018
Pros: Great health care plan. One of the best of any companies on the slope including BP. NMS as a native corporation falls under the Federal benefits act, so those are nice.
The only other Pro is some of the people I have worked with over the years. I have met friends that I now consider family working on the north slope.
Cons: Poor management with a control and command style. Management does not care about its employees and treats them as if they are disposable. No 401k match. Poor pay.
Really, NMS is good to get your foot in the door if you are interested in oilfield work. Get a little experience and get out to a better company. Otherwise you will regret it. The people that move up in this company are unfit managers and are all former pot-washers and bed-makers.
Meeting great coworkers, benefits
Horrible management, horrible pay, low morale within the compay, disgruntled employees
Cashier (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – May 1, 2018
Working and living so close to campus was super convenient for me, but the management made it difficult for the workers to make a living. Unless you had another job on the side, you would not be able to support yourself with the money and time available to you. Most of the management that you have to deal with regularly had an air of disdain around them, not because of the job but because of who was working the job. No matter who you were or what the situation was they would always look down on their employees. My experience was not very thrilling and I would not be in a hurry to return to my old position.

Good job for students, and retired. If you are young it is fine until you find another position with better pay, benefits, and fulfillment. As a retired individual it gives you something to do and a little pay on the side.
Remote Janitor (Current Employee) – Prudhoe Bay, AK – April 12, 2018
A typical day at work at Prudhoe Bay is cleaning up after baboons and children. I learned that there is really no advancement in the housekeeping department. Management is bad at micro managing and does not have the best interest of its workers intended. The workplace culture is stress overall. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the stressful expectations of management, to get things done when there is not enough time and not enough staff to do it. The pay for the amount of work expected is laughably way too low, to the point of indentured servitude. The most enjoyable part of the job is the coworkers, being able to support one another and help them with tasks at hand.
I signed my offer letter so I can only blame myself
Night Cook Supervisor (Former Employee) – Prudhoe Bay, AK – February 20, 2018
The turnover on the entry level positions is insane almost forty percent if not higher. Departmental supervisors are stretched to thin with little help from middle site management. Definitely a company that is share holder based which allow special exceptions. Departmental management will always side with the client in 90% of the cases even before the facts are presented.
New contract this last year with many new restrictions.
Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK 99515 – February 6, 2018
This company is contract work only. The post that I am currently on is what I would consider a hostile work environment and not very fulfilling. the company that I am employed with does not respond to any work related issues so all in all I do not recommend anyone who has self respect to work for this company.
