What will happen if bilko gets sacked for employing his mates and spending tens of thousands of pounds on agency workers that have mostly been on training

Well I have been following this board to see if NOV will / was recovering from the oil crash. It was in my mind that maybe I would like to reapply and move to Houston in the future. Those thoughts can be put to rest now. I would never in a million... read more
I hope nobody gets hurt, buy maybe all the rain will wash away all of the stupid decisions corporate makes!!!
I just realized the truck is drilling the land well on our laptop lock screens, not the rig! Nice one marketing
One of the morning shows was showing a list if the worst run companies in the US, NOV was listed as one of the worst run!! Nothing employees didn't already know. NOV is a national joke!!!
This is how you know a scam. A company that is bleeding more than $6 a share in losses over the year, paying out a "dividend" of approximately $20 million dollars in a quarter on a quarterly loss of $62 million. That's like a car crash victim... read more
Cost is much more relevant than number of people. If 10% is a number than it will likely be total cost or payroll cost. So you can lay off quantity 5 $60,000 employees or one manager being grossly overpaid at $300,000. NOV hasn't been very effective... read more
Analyzing the situation and climate of our industry suggest that indeed there are signs pointing towards more reduction before the summer ends.
Any word on the Burkburnett facility? Are they still hiring cause I have thought about applying.

Any news on creekmont? Just asking for a friend lol.
Hey guys we hearing rumours over here regards Elmar?....any info on that?

It seems that National Oilwell Varco is gearing for more layoffs... Not sure when, but this makes it pretty clear that the last round achieved what they wanted it to, so I am guessing they will not be shying away from more... read more

what happened to the n.o.v. plant in Oklahoma city ?
So now that they have closed our facility down in Covington and laid everyone off what going to happen to the SOB's in Houston and the AmClyde and Unit product line????
What plant in Texas is closing & it's production is moved to Pampa Texas?
I understand the bitterness and management can and likely is pretty bad, however your predicament has little to do with their performance. Just like most of the textile industry in the US your product is obsolete as made in the USA. It's too cheap to... read more
What happened to 4 big bosses at Creekmont, Paul Pratt, Mani1gram, Kenneth Scott and Eliseo Perez? They got fired last week?
Top notch, quality people, loosing their jobs because the not so smart managment team in Houston refused to listen. Donkeys in suits making decisions not because they know better, but because they purchased their degrees in a vending machine.
With Oil dropping like a rock. HR is going ahead with its last Hail Mary. More like a punt and so it seems next week is booked for conferences. It's one more cut at Eldridge. So I heard from very reliable people
So what's the latest status? Are there any employees left at NOV actually reading this?
in general are things picking up orders getting placed etc? I read a few month ago that 2019 will be business as usual with a $100 barrel, I guess work will be begin now in order to ready the rigs for drilling in 2019 Anyone seeing this yet?
