A good challenging and fast paced place to work with different tasks to do each day and a large squad working together on large projects which was rewarding to see completed at the end.
Having a great time working here and it’s a interesting place to work, working environment is good. With a high turn over of contractors, issues do arise. Most work mates and the supervisors are knowledgeable. It’s another string to my bow.. only downside it’s only ever temporary, loving my time there!!!
good and interesting job.busy for your full shift which was good.poor organization which meant you had to leave one job and start another.management was friends of friends,some which had no engineering skills and were out of their dept.highly skilled workers badly let down from above
bonus sometimes, pension
not tooled up for the jobs
Whilst i enjoyed my actual job i believe that management had a low opinion of time served people and because of this started employing semi skilled which led to an inferior product which in turn in my opinion aided the start of redundancies and even the thread of closure which it is under now. Although i am from an engineering background I learned quite a lot about high pressure testing in relation to their product. The culture within the workforce was in general to do their job to the best of their ability. The worst part of the job was being rushed in order to get the product out the door. The most enjoyable was workmates whom all respected each other.
medical insurance & decent pension.
Management attitude to shop floor workers
Throughout my apprenticeship it has been a good place to work although with the downturn in oil happening it means there is now no job security. The working day is 12 hours although theres is a lot of time off so it creates a good job work/life balance. The training isn't always great what can make the job slightly harder at times although i enjoy the challenge. Overall it has been a good place to work but with the oil and gas downturn it looks like ill need to move elsewhere.
