Great place to apply your skills!

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place to work. Everyone works in teams with a team supervisor. If you excel you'll be treated fairly. If you lack the requirements to appropriately run tests or can just not learn or keep making mistakes you'll loose your job.

Terrible Management

Could be a great job, but unfortunately upper management is terrible. Promotions are given out to family members and those who look to scheme and hurt others

Horrible company to work for!

Managment shout (loudly) at staff in an open plan office. I dont know what was worse - witnessing someone being shouted at and humiliated - or being shouted at yourself ! Lots of backstabbing and two faced staff! If your face doesn't fit - you'll be out!!I would give this extremley unprofessional company a zero if I could. No people skills whatsoever!!

LPG Department: I would not recommend it

Management has little to no concern for their workers health and safety. They accept more jobs than we can handle and expect the Inspector to cover it. This sometimes means you will work 18+ hours, Carry 100's of pounds of equipment when its not safe, put you at risk of being exposed to toxic chemical and other safety hazards, etc.

Pros

None

Waste of life.

Little to no training, other than learning from mistakes. Lots of time off but you spend most of that time recovering from the alternating Day/Night shifts.

Petroleum analysis is boring

If you are a high functioning autist, then this is the job for you. You must care a lot about things that do not really matter. Same tests all the time. Sometimes doing tests in the middle of the night.

On call job

If your single, have no kids or nothing tieing you down this job is definitely for you. The work is fairly easy but it comes with great responsibility. Your dealing with millions of dollars and are responsible for its distribution. There's many opportunities for advancements, you learn alot from this field of work and the pay is good along with the benefits.

Terrible

Unorganized and discriminatory. The whole work environment is everyone needing the same equipment for different jobs and there not being enough equipment. It’s always a mess. And they don’t give people with handicaps a chance

una empresa HORRIBLE

Fue una experiencia horrible. No existen turnos de trabajo. Olvidate de tu vida personal y social. Con respecto a la media, sueles cobrar mas, pero tambien ese plus es porque no pagan horas extras y tienes que estar disponible las 24 horas del dia 7 dias a la semana. No tiene una planificacion horaria correcta. en este lugar, vives para trabajar. No se lo recomiendo a nadie. No todo es el dinero.

Amerikaanse mentaliteit, veel uren voor weinig, haantjes gedrag

Werken bij Amspec is ongezond. 24/7 mentaliteit (Amspec op 1 en gezin op 2) Er is geen structuur, geen leiding en geen overzicht. ZSM geld maken is het doel en met zo weinig mogelijk mensen.

A good employer

It is a great company with great people throughout it. The life however is extremely difficult and never ending. If you have a family that needs you around then this is not the job for you. If you like the nightlife it is not the job for you. Frequent drug tests and other physical tests are required.

Petroleum Inspector at Amspec

Good pay, good benefits, very good way to expand your horizons in the petroleum industry. Formed bonds with my fellow inspectors that have been like family to me. However, the work-life balance is virtually non-existent and there will be times when you will work on your days off. Often.

Poor Management

Hindi ka makakapag leave basta basta. Marami pang tanong at kung ano pa. Pag nagkamali ka hindi mo na yon maitatama. For sure sibak ka. So many issues, backstabbers, tsismosas. Mumurahin ka sa harap ng co employees mo. Papahiyain ka. At the end of the day sibak ka.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

No increase

Not a good carreer

This job requires you to work long hours on call and be subject to harsh weather while doing physical labor. It wouldn't be too bad if it weren't for the lack of sleep that comes with it.

Technical, hands-on, interesting and relaxed place to work.

Interesting field of work, its basically an on-call position. Company makes sure you're well equipped to do the job. There's a variety of petroleum products to be quantified and sampled and observed. My supervisor was one of the best in the field that made sure I was training properly and continuously to insure my quality of work. You work independently but he was always a available 24/7 in case of any stumbling blocks. Overall the experience gained was awesome.

Pros

Great work environment, outdoors, fully equipped, descent pay, and co-workers.

Cons

No hazard pay, quarterly bonuses, and monthly gas allowance also short staffed.

Poor Management

Low pay and expectations beyond your control. The "rules" change daily depending on the person / mood in management. I would not recommend this company to anyone. In addition, they offer full benefits, but don't pay enough to use them.
