Not much training when you start your role and you just have to learn everything yourself as you go. Very much a blame culture, no one looks for solutions when things go wrong they just look to point their fingers at someone!
Pros
Good company benefits
Cons
Blame culture

Salary is rubbish and so is advancing through the company. No progress anywhere so you’ll be stuck in a dead end job until you decide to leave. Would not advise working here.

In my time at National oilwell varco i have progressed to be a better machinest overall. i have learned new methods in programming as well as having a different perspective on productivity levels through continuous improvement methods and the '5s' program. I personally find my managers to be very helpful and supportive as in any tasks undertaken by myself or my co-workers.
Pros
working hours, benefits
Cons
job stability due to the current nature of the oil and gas market

mye bøying av rør og montering av hydrauliske komponenter. lært masse hydraulikk og mekanisk arbeid. min nærmeste ledelse har jeg hatt godt samarbeid med. folkene jeg jobber med har vært veldig hyggelig og jeg har trivdes godt med de. det vanskeligste med jobben er venting på deler og tegninger.
Pros
gode pensjons og forsikrings ordninger.

My time at NOV was the best of my career. I left there (Aberdeen, Scotland) on good terms to follow my dream of working in Houston. The support and backing I and the rest of the team received during my time there was outstanding. I was able to travel and improve on my skills as well as develop new ones.
Pros
Treated like an Adult good benefits and work / play balance.
Cons
Being away from family (I had to commute and live in Aberdeen during the week)
