A typical day at work would be to attend daily planning meetings, organise the staff and prepare target cost assessments for clients.
I found the hardest part of the job was to make staff redundant at the end of contracts, but I kept in contact with them and had the pleasure of offering work on new contracts when awarded.
I learnt management skills and the importance of being a team player
Safety was always the No 1 priority, and always keep the clients requirements to the forefront of the business.
Being with stork has been a real blessing, the people are great, and management goes above and beyond to make sure everyone stays safe, and informed about all events going on within the company/ facility.
Management on site runs the job like if it was a drug cartel or something like that. Management taking advantage of their position to sell their goods. If workers don’t buy from them, they get them out from site.
I feel if you have a good team then any where is a good place to work.
I like the challenge and diversity and training opportunity.
The culture can be a bit unfair especially dealing with difficult co workers which can effect the whole dynamic of the team.
I feel as long as you are supported have good leadership opportunity and can trust and rely on your team mates it is a very good experience.
They do have excellent teams and welfare is always going above and beyond to make it a great place to work and be cared for to take your mind off being offshore as it can be difficult when you first start getting used to being away from home and missing events such a Christmas special birthdays ect
working for Stork was both enjoyable and rewarding. the management made regular visits offshore and tried with there limited time slots to hold a mass meeting with all workers and have a Q&A meeting where possible
10.5 hour day, reasonable pace
Always learning safety culture
Hardest part was driving out into the dessert.
At the end of a day you are not far from your Digs and time with colleagues is always worthwhile
Excellent company with great opportunities. Would highly recommend. Great benefits, including flexible working and 1.30pm finishes on Fridays. My job is fast paced and reactive as with most service companies.
