    Former Employee - Rough Neck, Motor Hand, Derrickman in Nisku, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Nabors Drilling full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, pay is always on time, office workers are friendly, Work is hard physically but there is a ton of fun in the job; with the right crew and right attitude.

    Cons

    No drugs allowed (if your a druggie, go somewhere else), Sometimes the work can be overly dirty and who knows if you will get Cancer from being exposed to the drilling fluids and fumes there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying and harassment. Yes there is a phone line for reporting such, but the culture still is you take abuse and harassment from those higher up in the food chain. Drillers think they are gods, and often drive those working at a less pay scale or for them away.
