Not a great experience
IT (Former Employee) –  Manchester20 June 2016
Genuine support among immediate team members & Supervisor. It was close to home and met some great people here.

There is no communication between departments and it tends to always be someone elses fault. The company doesn't seem to have many values or discipline, appears to be make it up as you go along. There is no direction from the top.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
No discipline and limited respect

Scaffolder (Former Employee) –  Shetland3 April 2016
I worked away for 3 weeks at a time,I met some good people and became friends with them.The work was on an Sullom voe oil terminal,which was, and still is needing alot of work to modernise lots of the plant and process areas.Health and safety were a top priority on this tier 1 site.Travelling men such as I worked 7 days a week for 3 weeks.10 hour shifts for 6 days was the norm only when dark nights or bad weather did this alter.I enjoyed my 15 months working there.
Pros
1 week leave a month which was paid.
Cons
working away from home is not a walk in the park

Top tier COMMA site
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Sullom Voe19 January 2016
Three years ago this was the biggest job in Europe restoring a 35 year old oil terminal to make it good for another 25 year life span. I was originally sent to the Sullom Voe terminal by Stork to set the job up a time when things were still looking good for the industry. A year later I was transferred over to Bilfinger as a supervisor and during this period we progressed the team to a more accountable and efficient manner. I have always considered myself as a good team player and I always like to plan in advance. I treated the workforce I had beneath me with respect and listened to their concerns.These are the fundamental rules put place when on a new contract and above all I take the responsibility of safety as my priority.The hardest part in my experience of the last project was the frustrating amount of time it took to make a decision, wasting valuable time in the process. The most enjoyable part of any job working away from home was when you stepped on the plane for a field break.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
twenty two days on, six days off
