Presicion drilling give me the opportunity to learning more and getting training on there drilling equipment Also they send me to NOV training center to train me on their drilling equipment
Upper management in Colorado is disguising, your either on the click or not. THEY HAVE UP FRONT JUDGEMENT. The field Superintendent gives little to no help & expects the world out of you. You work 18 to 24 hours a day and get no appreciation for anything you do. They expect 100% out of you and give 10%
The safety culture starts from the top. The company try’s to make it the safest and most efficient place to work. You give up a lot of family time but it is self satisfaction of knowing that you can make a difference.
For the most part it is like one big family
Time of service doesn’t matter
Roughnecking is not for everybody, great money, hard work, you work holidays, bdays, weekends, etc.. good people, I'd go back if I could, save your extra money, work safe, always remember this about the oil field, "if you wont put your dick in it, don't put your finger in it" this will help you keep all your fingers. enjoy!
one of the highest paid drilling companies

Very safety oriented.Corporate office uninvolved and disconnected with employees.Compensation near top of field.Not loyal to longtime employees.Occasionally disregards placement of employees.

Jobs at Precision Drilling
I enjoyed working with Precision Drilling, I worked with an awesome team but unfortunately because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. I and several people were laid off.
Great breakfast and lunches from vendors
No raises and bonuses
Company has good field level management and emphasis is on keeping workers safe. At senior level business is business. The stated Core Values are really nothing more than good bumper sticker material. The company use to value its employees and customers but the CEO is a poor Capitan of a sinking ship. Unfortunate that he has steered this once great company onto the reef and only a select few stand to make it to the lifeboat. The ground level supervisors and managers put their hearts into the job and perform well for the customers but are treated like expendable cogs rather than the breadwinners of the company. For shame Precision Drilling Board of directors and Senior Management.
Industry Par wages
If the company actually followed their own policies outside of the rig and into the maintenance department, this review would go differently. They have people in charge in areas that absolutely nobody has a clue why or how they became in charge. No direction, no support, no leadership.
I really enjoyed my 7 years with Precision Drilling and the family aspect of the company. However this is fully dependent on what crew you’re put on and if you get a crew of “old schoolers” get a transfer. I feel that the entire oilfield is trying to make a change and Pd for the most part has a great program. As far as corporate goes they do hold true to their employees and they do what they say. As far as what actually goes on out the rig it’s different, sometimes they do have your back and sometimes they stab you in the back. I would still be working at Precision, however I felt that it was getting very political and that the old schoolers need to be weeded out for the change to actually happen. The old schoolers are extremely irrational, unmotivating, and extremely dishonest. When the office staff comes out everything is by the book and safety is implemented greatly, as soon as they leave, it’s back to hurry hurry hurry. I found it very confusing and I don’t like dishonesty especially in someone who is supposed to be a leader.
the job is constantly changing, so the ability to learn and move up is all levered on the individual, the safety culture is great, its not far fetched and it is the type of safety skills one can take home and apply to your everyday personal life. The atmosphere is challenging and rewarding.
Precision is really average with other drilling companies out there. I feel they are too big a company to care for each and every individual employee. Although pay and benefits are good, it’s just not as family oriented as I would have hoped.
