Pros

Solid company, Decent home time, Good pay if your working

Cons

Very long hours, Upper Management poor, Seems like there always adding busy work to you. If there is no work you sit around the shop doing busy work just to keep you there. Working conditions are bad at times. Gear bags have to sit out in the weather because they wont get enough job trailers to keep gear in. Coordinators MOST NOT ALL in my opinion only care about them selves. Probably never ran a business before or managed people but are in the positions because they have been there awhile. Took away our living expense in Miles City so if you rent a place and are working then its a waste of money and if your stuck in the shop for a hitch you cant afford it and your bills at home, catch 22.

Advice to Management

Listen to your work force that pays your salary. Care more about the people in the field and the conditions they work in you were there once. Get them the tools and equipment they need.

    Pros

    *Great pay
    that's about all they have going for them

    Cons

    Sanjel used to be an awesome company. As of late they seem to have lost what made them better then the rest. They used to take a family first approach to things, and have loyalty to their employees.

    There is extreme favoritism, people that shouldn't be in a position have it, because they are buddy, buddy with higher ups in Denver. Due to people with inexperience, being put into positions they shouldn't have, you now have unsafe work conditions. People are working 24 hour shifts, while others are sitting in a hotel room, twiddling their thumbs. Employees with 2 months experience are being promoted to supervisors. How are they supposed to know how to handle a dangerous situation, if they don't know what they are doing?

    Higher up management has decided it is a good idea to now strip long term employees of their vacation time, because they are having to pay out new employees (that quit right away) for vacation time. I can agree with not giving new hires 15 days vacation right off the hop, but don't punish the employees that have been with the company for years.

     They have lost all loyalty to employees. You have people that have been with the company 15 years, getting let go with out cause.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that it is the little guy, out in the field, away from their families for 15 days at a time that are making you rich. With out your employees, you are nothing.
    Don Macdonald appreciated his employees and the guys knew it. Go back to those days.
    Quit promoting people too soon. You are jeopardizing the lives of people on the crews. You have to have trust in your sup and be able to know if something goes wrong, that they will be able to diffuse the situation.
