no words needed this company only wants to you do as they say to many chiefs no Indians all on your back even if your right your wrong they tire you out as you don't fit in the gang bosses are up each other so you don't fit in to there agenda
no free breezes
very long hour's
Management never seen, supervisors who barely speak to you and don't know the tools, only in a supervisory position because they came from a company that was bought over. No direction or leadership, can do what you want. Not treated very well, no infrastructure to help you do your job. Never seen a place where everyone is out for themselves more than here. I have always heard terrible things about NOV but didn't believe it until I seen it for myself. Please take my word, do not work for NOV, its reputation for treating staff bad is well merited.
Management, attitudes, a ship adrift at sea.
Sounded great, all the standards flaunted but management and customer relations below levels expected. Engineers treat awful. Seem unable to learn from mistakes and change. Old school thinking. Need new blood to implement changes.
from my experience the only way to succeed at this company is to have no idea what your doing at your job. management at Dundee once all made car tires at the same place over the road, some very nasty vindictive senior management in that particular office dead set on ruining anybody that dare to question there knowledge or ability.
Really loved working for NOV and was devastated when the redundancies forced their hand. no two days were ever the same i have the opportunity to travel and worked with some of the smartest people in the industry. our small team was extremely friendly and i enjoyed just being in the office. Management took a grown up approach to its staff and allowed them to work unhindered. which made the redundancy especially difficult.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

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
I have enjoyed my time at NOV and will be sad to leave as the company is downsizing and relocating back to America. I was in control of the stores and my main responsibility was to ensure all stock was delivered correctly to the relevant builds. my other responsibilities included cycle counting, booking in deliveries, returning faulty/ wrong products. checking of all forklifts to ensure they were safe to drive, I was also a trained first aider and fire Marshall work at NOV was sometimes frantic and deadlines had to be met, Management were approachable and listened to any concerns. It is unfortunate that the oil industry is going through this slowing down period but if it ever picks up I would have no hesitation in returning back to NOV
Close to home, friendly and hardworking staff
oil prices dictated work
