    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Limited physical labor
    When there is down time on the rig you have little to do if anything
    The people you work with

    Cons

    Work/Life balance skewed heavily to work
    No set schedule so no rotation like all the other positions have (14 on / 14 off or 28 on /14 off)

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people so that you can get a rotation going for all the units.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work to stay busy, utilized most basic and some advanced office skills, good communication from upper management and home office, pleasant work environment. Challenging and rewarding to complete all tasks assigned and/or necessary to achieve desired results within acceptable time lines. Job safety is very important to the company. Worked within state and federal DOT guidelines. Worked at various office locations based on company needs, with other administrative assistants who were friendly, courteous and welcomed additional help.

    Cons

    Low starting waged based on the many years of office management experience I possess, small annual raises- depending on the annual self evaluation and bottom line of the company.

    Advice to Management

    When area managers recognize that they have in their employ a highly efficient, goal oriented office manager with a positive attitude and the willingness to commute to other field offices to support and assist other administrative assistants based on company needs, it should be expected that the company would reward that asset of a team leader with a more respectable wage.

    I worked at Nabors Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Some training was available.

    Cons

    Management shook things up, as far as individuals' responsibilities. One week, my responsibilities would be "this", the next week, my responsibilities would be "that".

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to employees responsibilities, as set forth in the employee manual.
