    I worked at Wood Group PSN (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    WGPSN held very high ethical standards and encouraged management to adhere to universal principles. This was when Bob Keiller was CEO.

    Cons

    High degree of cronyism and nepotism amongst Scottish leaders. If you are not Scottish your advancement is limited at best.

    Advice to Management

    Use locals to run local businesses rather than expensive expats with preferential salaries and benefits. Hard to make a cohesive team when you are not one of the club.

    Production Operator B Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lafayette, LA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wood Group PSN (Lafayette, LA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had spoken with the HR lady over the phone and explained that I have five years experience but I've only worked on land. She said that she wanted to see what I knew and we scheduled a time where I could come in and take some tests. I passed the test for the C operator first since she thought I wouldn't know much without ever going offshore. I then passed the B operator test and did even a few points higher than the C test. So unless the test is faulty it said I had the knowledge to go offshore but she still felt like I was a C operator since I wasn't familiar with some of the safety systems which I understand. She then put my resume in the data base and we went our separate ways. We talked for a long time about random things that weren't even work related and she made me feel very relaxed like it wasn't even an interview. This was last week and I haven't heard anything back from them. I can say one thing about this company that I've noticed... If you search for rig zone jobs in Lafayette you will see that WGPSN has openings. And if you receive notifications from them you will see the same positions being posted every day. For instance this operator position has been being posted almost daily for a month now. There's no way they aren't finding experienced qualified candidates in Lafayette to work in the gulf. I mean the requirement alone is T-2 certified and 2+ years. That applies to thousands of displaced guys around this area. So my opinion about this is... The HR department is actively searching out candidates and leaving a paper trail in order to keep their own jobs during this oilfield downturn and make it appear they are still of use. Also when they do decide to hire for positions their database will be so full of resumes that they wont have to wait for people to come in for interviews.
