Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)

Pros

-Good Benefits though no opportunity to flex them for your lifestyle last I checked -Social activities for Halloween, Valentines etc

Cons

-There are some good people and some bad, hopefully you do not meet or have to work with the latter

Advice to Management

Take extra time to shake the dust growing around offices and interact with the employees 1 on 1. Implement a process where employees can communicate their efforts, accomplishments, and concerns to senior level management.

    I haven't experienced any yet.

    Cons

    On-site management are very disrespectful to lower level employees. Many degrading comments are made about "lazy Americans", by Canadian employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train your leadership to show respect for all employees and you may not have as much employee turnover.

    Pros

    The only advantages to working for ANY drilling company is the wage. Precision does offer health and dental on a share basis (you pay some they pay some). Also they implemented some kind of family support system but I'm not sure how or if it works.

    Cons

    They say that family is important but if you try to take days off to be with your family you could potentially loose your job (not with the company but the rig you work on). Your on site manager (tool push) is either older and set in the ways that things used to be done or he's new and has no clue how to run a rig. Communicating while at work with your bosses is hard at times and the rest of the time is almost impossible. The older the tool push the worse it is. They have no respect for the people below them and now that they have the job they want they treat you with no respect. The newer pushes usually have a great understanding of the rig but to be a push you don't have to take any communications training and so they don't know how to deal with the people side of their job. Also you are away from your family most of the year, but that's a sacrafice you need to be willing to make.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise that management take seriously the fact that their rig managemnet fleet is aging and that they should find people to fill these positions sooner than later. Also that all people in management positions take some kind of trainging to communicate properly and without treating others like they are dispensible. We are not dispensible employees and we expect to be treated with the same dignity and respect that comes with every other job. WE ARE PEOPLE TOO!!!!!
