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.
Enjoy the people relationships within the organisation, travel and the challenges that comes
National Oilwell Varco provides a lot of learning and growth opportunities for any aspiring professionals. I had the privilege to undertake numerous training programs and complete my MBA sponsored by Company as part of its elite Leadership Program.
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.
I have been with NOV for 14 years and this has been my 1st career job ever since I left National service. NOV has develop my career steadily as a kid who just graduated and to a man who knows what he wants in life.
NOV has an excellent management system whereby I was lucky to have the opportunity to experience many different roles.
this was a career experience that I surely appreciate.
As am doing Sales, and technial support as main fucntions, repsonding and solving issues, quotations, and working on emails is a typical day at work.
Making Sales call to customers, and site issues review or visits are mostly the second part of my day.
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!
A lot of give away's and training's useful in my field.
Yeah there is a tendency that i need to work long hours, but all those efforts were compensated.

Welder (Current Employee) - Singapore - May 31, 2016
I worked with my co-workers with passion. I enjoy doing the job even though there are difficult part of it but I can always find ways to do it. My boss has confident on me as a welder so there is no need for him to supervise me every now and then.
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.
I love my job as it offers me places and solving problems onsite. dealing with OIM, Rig crew etc...
