    I worked at Calfrac Well Services full-time

    Pros

    Once a review was finally given pay increase based on knowledge was reasonable for my skill set. Although late in coming once given pay increased according to knowledge. I've worked for other companies that never gave advancement in pay they take you nearly to supervisor responsibility at startup pay and act as though you should just be greatful for the added responsibility.

    Cons

    Reviews and pay adjustment based on those reviews should occur at the stated 90 intervals. Work schedule of 15 and 6 is brutal for family life when you 1000 miles from home.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure reviews are given regularly (90 days as indicated at hiring) and employees pay and promotions are based on skill and performance. After several years I was finally given a review and shortly after recieved a reasonable advancement based on knowledge and work, but it should have occurred much sooner and gradual increases would have promoted better aditude and incentive. (Don't forget it's your employees that are your company poster, there overall happiness is key!)
