    Pros

    Good pay, great rigs, good benefits, lots of time off.

    Cons

    Nasty job, too far from home and the family, and can be a very uncertain job if oil prices go down like they are now! We pay for our own gas and food with no perdium or reimbursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Always have top of the line machinery and equipment. A few great co-workers became like family to me.

    Cons

    Safety regulations make it impossible to do the job the right way. There are so many steps involved with safety, you spend more time doing paperwork and JSA than actually doing the work. If you follow the safety procedures, it seems like everyone hates you. If you have a lazy person on your rig, he will be the first to get promoted, simply to get him off of your rig. Then, that person is replaced with another lazy person that came from another rig because they wanted to get rid of him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify safety procedures. Some JSA's are a joke and it literally takes an hour to read them. Get to know your crews. Show up to the rigs a little more often so you can know who's doing a good job and who isn't rather than simply going by what your rig manager tells you.

    Pros

    The hours are good. AVERAGE 90 hrs. A week. Company truck. Expenses paid. All tools and cloths bought for you. 100,000.00+ a year starting pay. One of the hardest electrical jobs to have. You work on your own..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To much favoritism and the employees don't get treated fairly.
