It is really fun to work with our colleagues on mega tenders and projects. Weatherford is willing to fund and train employees to achieve the highest level of competency, and believe in their own employees. Management is not overly well organized.

I started work with the morning meeting (tool Box Talk) with all operators and helpers. Start a quick rounding of all along the shop floor and identify any problems and stoppages. During the problem solving , I mentally prepare next job planning for the machines. Have a short meeting with the big Boss and make him happy with the late night out put and the upcoming planned jobs and a passage of ideas on any critical and urgent parts. I learned a lot from this company to accomplish a good working atmosphere and grab a good efficiency. My co workers was very well behaved and was competitive. Hardest Part of the job was to allocate job for each when there is very less work and make the work shop busy. The enjoyable part was to develop new parts, new licensing and getting finished the very urgent jobs when there is already have no space in the machine planned hours.

WFT is a good company to work with but there is not criteria for career progression. If you know someone up in the food chain you get promotion or else get stuck at the same place.

case to case and situation basis, on issues, such as late deliveries, non conformance, etc.There are high's and low times, Learned to be flexible on any situatin, adopt and resolve issues and/or concerns. Co-Workers are freindly and helpful, but there will always be co-workers that are hard to please. Hardest part of the job is when a particular part of Job or order are delayed, either from any root cause such as deliveries, non conformance, etc. Mos enjoyable part of the Job is when you deliver customer orders in time which means a revenue for the company
Pros
Mostly friendly people
Cons
May need to work by night due to location and time difference and urgency
