    It has been interesting to see the poor adoption of company culture by "legacy" employees. They are the worst thing.

    I have been working at Scientific Drilling full-time


    Interesting line of work offers exposure to many new technologies.


    It is a drag to work at a place where people complain so much yet have so much to be grateful for

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Scientific Drilling.

    Interview Details

    Quite a messy operation there. HR is out of touch with the needs and desires of those they are trying to fill jobs for.

    Poor communication with HR and never felt comfortable with the company culture. It went from a family operation to an insulated corporate giant run by human robots without any heart or passion.
