    Pros

    In other areas they are neither good or bad.

    Cons

    Working for the SLS department in Aberdeen you will find out that you have the worst rotas of anyone on the rig and you are the lowest paid. Even the cleaners get more money or the same. Yes, I accept low pay but how can you put up with these rotas? They are always bad. You only get equivalent time off if you book a holiday. You always do a week more than you get off and some people regularly do 3 on 1 off. It is relentless. I wanted to work hard and progress in the company but I feel drained by not having te right time off with my family. People have tried to complain to the managers but they just continue to do it. If they sorted this out the company would be fine but it has been really really bad for a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A vicious circle. Don't hire enough, the present employees leave because of continuous over work and ridiculous yearly hours and get even shorter staffed. Loose experienced people.

    Make an effort to hire more and give people 2 weeks on and 2 off or 3 on and 3 off and employees will stay and you will have more experienced, better motivated staff. It is ok to do a few 3 on 2 off but not continuous 3 on 2 off or 3 on 1 off.
