    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and location. Some upper management is okay, but most need training. Ok starter job but not a long term career.

    Cons

    Tons of office politics. Many employees are not trained properly due to incompetent management. Favoritism is definitely used when people are promoted, and is not based on their actual skill level in some departments. They are constantly getting sued for not paying employees their proper overtime pay among other things. Human Resources is a joke here, avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually knows what they are doing and are well trained.
