    Great Management, supplied personal protective equipment to all hands, training for job skills

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get's you into the Oil & Gas industry

    Cons

    Core values are just a piece of paper
    Must wait over 90 days to be eligible for health insurance
    No work life balance - expect to be expected to work long hours
    U.S. employees are second class to Canadian
    Lack of flexibility - which prevents growth
    Lack of knowledgeable management to prevent or correct problems
    Lack of anonymity – retaliation against employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what your managers are doing, how they are treating their employees. Realize that in order to employee top notch personnel, you will have to pay competitive salaries.

    I have been working at Precision Drilling full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Started off great, but numerous changes in upper management as lead to a overall free fall in employee moral, and attitude.

    Cons

    No additional training, upper management is awful. No clear leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside the box.

    I have been working at Precision Drilling full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, 2 weeks off, and Per Diem make up for the four weeks away from home.

    Cons

    There are no request days off. Its a 28 on, 14 off work cycle with very minimal exceptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should hire people with a little more intellect and customer service in your payroll and main offices. I have had multiple occasions where payroll messed up and lost their patience. Its enough to make a field employee quit. There are smarter employees in the field than in your office

    I worked at Precision Drilling

    Pros

    Precision Drilling hires great people. I worked with an exceptional team. I was also able to take advantage of several learning opportunities and leadership seminars.

    Cons

    I saw people being promoted, that had exceptional job skills; but lacked appropriate leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone loves to work for a company that promotes from within; it helps to retain employees. Make sure that the person who is promoted also gets leadership training.
