Good stepping stone into the oil and gas industry. Stork has a culture of who you know rather than what you know. If your face fits and you have the right post code you should do well.
I received plenty of training whilst at stork and very good money but they have no loyalty to staff and have helped create the culture of been paid off after each trip rather than been held on the books
Good money, good training good stepping stone into the north sea
Bad management, paid of regular, just a number culture
Sheet Metal Worker / Insulator (Current Employee) – Offshore Aberdeen – 18 December 2015
I have worked for Stork for 13 years, but with the down turn in the price of oil we have had to take a pay cut and been moved to 3 on and 3 off rotas, the 3 weeks away are taking its toll on my home life so I feel it is time to look for something at home.
Proposals Engineer (Current Employee) – Aberdeen – 25 November 2015
Being a Proposals Engineer means a typical day at work can be considered quite busy depending on the level of tenders/quotations that have come in.
This would mean juggling high volume work within restricted timescales without compromising on the quality of work. However this is made easier by excellent members of the team who would come together during periods of high workload and give each support and encouragement.
Excellent organisational, communication and time management skills are essential attributes and can take you a long way.
Even though at times it would be difficult to enjoy a work life balance, getting key results by winning tender's and opportunities for the company will make all hard-work and hours put in worth it.
Development of communication and team working skills, confidence to present ideas and proposals to the Business Board, Brilliant colleagues
There are times when you would work very long hours
I have enjoyed my experience while working at stork. It is a great place where i have met lots of wonderful people. This is the company where you could definitely develop and climb the career ladder. Office location is one of the disadvantage.
Stork was a great place to work (staff wise) I really got on with all my colleagues.
Scaffolder (Former Employee) – UK seas – 8 October 2013
Stork was an ad hoc position where the staff and culture was great. to be honest I enjoyed my time with Stork but the ad-hoc was proving to be a bit straining on my financial side of things and I needed to look elsewhere.
