    Precision Drilling.. to work or not work.

    Pros

    The only advantages to working for ANY drilling company is the wage. Precision does offer health and dental on a share basis (you pay some they pay some). Also they implemented some kind of family support system but I'm not sure how or if it works.

    Cons

    They say that family is important but if you try to take days off to be with your family you could potentially loose your job (not with the company but the rig you work on). Your on site manager (tool push) is either older and set in the ways that things used to be done or he's new and has no clue how to run a rig. Communicating while at work with your bosses is hard at times and the rest of the time is almost impossible. The older the tool push the worse it is. They have no respect for the people below them and now that they have the job they want they treat you with no respect. The newer pushesr pushesr pushes usually have a great understanding of the rig but to be a push you don't have to take any communications training and so they don't know how to deal with the people side of their job. Also you are away from your family most of the year, but that's a sacrafice you need to be willing to make.

    Good company

    Pros

    Good pay and good rotational schedule. They work with you on training requirements and pay for everything while at training.

    Cons

    Rig managers are either great or bad, depends on the rig and person.

    Pros

    They do get work. If your rig wasn't working, it didn't take long for them to find you somewhere to go, especially if you've made a good name for yourself

    Cons

    They won't spend money. Especially on training. That's why I left. They wouldn't pay for my fall arrest so I could move into the derrick, which was our field sup's call. I'm assuming the less money they spend the better they look. Either way, your just a number, and youre not nearly as important as their big bad drilling side.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. A lot of the guys were fun to work with. Made some good friends. Learned a lot.

    Cons

    Just like everywhere else you can get some bad drillers or tool pushers. If you work through them you will find a crew/rig you like and can make a good home. Politics on some crews was bad.
