    Pros

    they give you lots of hours in the cement department... sometimes 12-30 hours straight... the pay is okay lots of overtime and here in california its double time after 12 hours... drivers get hired at 13.50/hour that make double time at 27/hour which is great for no experience... 40 hours guaranteed!

    Cons

    always on call, never have time in peace with your family... sleep in the trucks at the job site not in your bed.

    Advice to Management

    give raises to people that deserve it... people in the yard need to be more professional. meeting need to take place more often to make sure everyone talks about what really going on

    Pros

    Great progression path. There is ceiling on promotions, if you want it they will give it to you if you earn it. The benefits package is very great compared to other big companies out there. Pay is great as well with many different opportunities to make supplemental pay whether its job bonus or perfomance based, and they usually have a merit raise at about 3% yearly.

    Cons

    Family time. This businees is non-stop, especially in the office. Office personal normally work a schedule like every other weekend off or 11-3. So so day on you have a week on call but either way you still have to be accesible by phone or email 24/7. If your a field personnel on land that treats the rig operations you work a 7 days on 2 days off, 7 days on 3 days off type of schedule. Now all of the mentioned above scheudles can vary slightly depending on your location. Now I currently work offshore and find it to be the best schedule so far if you can do the time. I work 14 days on 14 days off. I've also worked 28 days on 28 days off. Either way your only working a half a year making in excess of six figures for half a year of work. So many people don't make that working a full year. But the downside is you miss a lot of home activities from being offshore.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to work in a more generous scheduling or at least more employees to ease the work load.
