    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.

    Current Employee - Technician in Williston, ND
    Current Employee - Technician in Williston, ND

    I have been working at Nabors Drilling full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company will allow you time to get to know your job position details, lots of support in the field from coordinators and other technician employees. Provide housing and super benefits package. Very big on meeting safety standards and will not question decisions based on good safety practices.

    Cons

    Management is unavailable. Culture is base and interaction toward promotion is difficult. Lots of promises of pay upgrades but difficult to achieve due to Nabors standards of training outside the states at corporate in Texas. Work can be very difficult physically due to climate and weather conditions in ND an MT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the weak links and streamline the pay grade process. Concentration on overtime usage versus customer service is wrong focus. Customer service wins business. An employee that gets the job accomplished and is reliable is well worth the extra in overtime pay. More bodies does not equal more work accomplished. Misuse of resources should be monitored better.
