    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay started out well, but structure changed 3 times in the 2 years i was employed there.

    Cons

    Everyone and i mean everyone is out for themselves. From new hires, to hr, to regional manager up. On paper, they train you. Classes are way more of a joke. They also put walking morons as operations managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Key beliefs? If you even think anyone.. ANYONE, practices these out in the field, maybe you should check into a nut house. I have no respect for you as you deserve none. This company is the most phony company i have ever worked for. I did not get fired. I am not a disgruntled ex employee. I just am telling it as it is.

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get's you into the Oil & Gas industry

    Cons

    Core values are just a piece of paper
    Must wait over 90 days to be eligible for health insurance
    No work life balance - expect to be expected to work long hours
    U.S. employees are second class to Canadian
    Lack of flexibility - which prevents growth
    Lack of knowledgeable management to prevent or correct problems
    Lack of anonymity – retaliation against employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what your managers are doing, how they are treating their employees. Realize that in order to employee top notch personnel, you will have to pay competitive salaries.

    Pros

    Great benefits, and convenient location.

    Cons

    Family and Friends plan - nepotism. Many upper managers lack formal education, and consequently do not value it. Inequality in pay and pay grade. Only Canadians get opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build the talent pool with educated, high potential employees. Build for the future.

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Money. Some travel. Time off when summer comes.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Corrupt, egocentric management. Profit comes first, people last- in fact people are disposable here. If you value your carrer decisions, be warned, the money will not compensate you if your ruined here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal, secret audits for lower management, and employee conduct would ferret out the corruption. Lower management reflects their own self-interests to a fault.
