Supervisor/Team Leader (Former Employee) – Saudi Arabia – August 31, 2016
As with most major multi-disciplined and over populated management structured companies, the work can sometimes become stressful when dependent on others. The company is now so diverse in its capability from originally oil and gas production, all the way to NGL, chemical and plastics.
I have to say that; it was an experience not to be missed and I did largely benefit from it in more ways than one. A multi ethnic and diverse workforce when working with either employer or contractor.
A company that I would recommend anyone who gets the opportunity to work for.
A typical day at work is extremely busy with handling three contractors. I have learned to handle my work load day by day. My Co-Workers are the best and enjoy working with them on daily basis. Hardest part of my job is not knowing how to speak Arabic.
