Worked in TATA steel, hard work and long hours but due to this the pay was good. Only working on temp basis but got a good understanding as what it would be like to work for, definitely worked for worse.

Great place to work

All round great company to work for, although long hours and it can be dirty work very rewarding company with good rates of pay would recommend to any one looking to work for them


Good rate of pay


Long hours on shut down

Stressful contract

Add together: a contract so badly set up there was little profit in it, Key positions performing 2 roles, widespread lack of process awareness, stressed management due to bullying style client management, a permanently stressed atmosphere everywhere you looked. Not a nice place to work. My guess is that top management Altrad allow this to happen because they don't care or respect the workforce.


Salary OK


Bad atmosphere

Ok to work for

The pay needs to be better so the turn over there won't be so much as the outside world pays better.


Long hours in the outages

Not a good place to work

Everything so unsure if you are to have a job next week or next month. Management is non existent there is no feed back being fed back to employees about contracts up coming or even present contract.

Not a good company

Pay is bad, poor on ppe, management can't manage good, poor people skills, the kit is old and they lie. You have to put safety observations to get uniform.

In all fairness good company to work for.

Good company to work for. If you are interested in climbing the ladder there are always jobs advertised on the online portal. Has well as advertising jobs on the online portal, you can see your wage slip which you get to know what you will be getting paid every Tuesday as wages get transferred to banks every Thursday.

My Altrad work

Altrad was a good company to work for and would work with them again if the opportunity arose. They are a good fair company to work for. I only left because the contract came to an end.

Very good company to work for

Although my tenure was very short, it was a pleasurable and enjoyable time. The work was varied, and supervision were friendly and approachable. The whole system for new starts were easy to follow, and inductions were interesting, and informative. Problem reporting was very simplistic

Good Team

Review Priorities. Preparation of Permits and scheduling site visits for all Fabric Maintenance work scopes. Ensuring that the Work Control Certificates (WCC’s) required for the upcoming 12 hrs are listed and the appropriate Area Authority notified. Maintaining a E-Cow Competency register Assisting the Control of Work Competency Assurance Assessor in the PA competency process. Being the focal point for the administration and co-ordination of all permits, including those permits that are suspended, but where the work is not complete. Supply accurate data and reports regarding PTW status to the offshore and onshore management team.

amiable and easy

Arrive at workplace and given days tasks to complete. I found teamwork helped. The management where there to give guidance when required The different cultures where quite easy to learn. The hardest part of the job was getting to the workplace itself. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting so many new people.

Was this review helpful?

Very experienced Management team who where available to help if needed.

Ideal Platform to work being on a 12 minute flight from the beach to the platform. Opportunities to shuttle to different platforms on a daily basis during the 2 week rota made it more interesting whilst being there.


Short transfer flight to / from platform.


Uncertainty over job future with problems at Barrow.

good workplace

Good workplace, worked well as a team and communication was very key when it came to the job. Always got the work done and out on time as requested. Office and yard staff had to communicate in order for work to be successful.
