Always something new to learn, be ready to expect the unexpected, think of our the box, preserverance, plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. At times can be stressful especially the demand from customer and management.

I love and enjoy working at NOV. However, the culture here is that the structure of the management keep on changing and this includes on opportunity. There are many colleagues who is with very positive attitude and willing to assist you with your daily query and there is also who likes to keep everything to themselves. Due to the frequent changes of management, people are more reserved and do not prefer to share. Other than, work are good and if given the opportunity there is so much to learn from this company.
Pros
Free shuttle bus at certain location

National Oilwell Varco is the best learning to practice work ethics, a lot of challenges in my career while I was working in the field.
The management most likely able to gave me numerous chances to explore more being me as an asset and great contributor with the organizations.

I am so grateful until now that National Oilwell Varco included me before as one of their employee and frequently representing them during my deployment locally or oversea job assignments.


May God bless you all!
Pros
A lot of give away's and training's useful in my field.

My last assignment was in Batam, Indonesia - working with Indonesian workers. Leading quality team and added with production as well due to slim organization.
Learning the culture of Indonesian, delivering message from headquarter to site, monitoring the overall operation in night shift for both quality and production, enhance thge quality at all times, giving training to sub-ordinates, ensure QMS and SOP are in place at all times

My employment was under Singapore, and they are all supportive although I worked in Batam Plant.

Co-workers are cooperatiove, both Singaporean co-worker or Indonesian co-worker.

The hardest part was sudden change of plan - which need immediate action to react of changes

The most enjoyable part is team are friendly & cooperative and putting effort to complete the job
Pros
Medical benefits, housing allowance, tranport provided
Cons
Permanent Night Shift

Installation,commissioning and rectification of all mechanical equipment and with minor electrical troubleshoot. Minimal supervision and travelling to remote places onshore and offshore world wide.

Everday is a learning experience irregardless of whats the nature of the job might be.


Bosses are great as we are able to communicate openly and have only one thing in our mind and that is resolving the issues that we are facing.


The most enjoyable thing about my job is that get to meet all kind of peoples and solving issues onsite.
Pros
I love my job as it offers me places and solving problems onsite. dealing with OIM, Rig crew etc...
Cons
No cons
