    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hercules (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a lot of money to make and you a lot of hours to put in, the work never stops while the oil industry is going good. you meet great people and you become family because it all you really have out there. I would work here again! You gain a lot of experience with the potential to move up through the industry.

    Cons

    The cons are being gone from home all the time but that's a sacrifice you'll have to make for a decent paying job. there not much to get into being that you out in the middle of the gulf but yet another sacrifice worth the money. not to many cons when your in the oil industry.

    I worked at Hercules full-time

    Pros

    Very safe but fun environment. The fast paced work made the day go by quickly and the pay was great.

    Cons

    Very hot in the summer time and the physical labor becomes a little strenuous at times.

    Advice to Management

    Previous management was great, a little hard on me but it made me a better worker. Not sure about current management. However, the management that was there that laid me off was an off-putting, insincere person who didn't care about his workers one bit.
