Homework:
1. You cannot get into Conoco any other way then through PAC, and you have to be an employee for at least 90 days (which usually ends up to be more), AND...you can only get in if there is a position available.
2. PAC actually has better "health benefits" then Conoco if you compare side by side (believe it or not).
3. PAC pays EXTREMELY LESS then Conoco.
4. 100% AGREE, "PAC is not a good thing, especially their management!!!!!!!!!!"
****I'm on your side kma. Not trying to be against you, but the information I noted really is the truth. Speaking from experience.****

Oh the babblings of the mis-informed! PAC people are NOT ex ConocoPhillips People. Conoco Phillips people do not hate the PAC guys, PAC people take care of the probationary periods and lots of them transfer to employemnt. The people working with PAC who have no benefits are the "rig consultants" and these people dont have benefits where ever they work, PAC is based in Houston, and is a Wood Group Company.

The post was a direct quote from their company website, hence the wording. I have no idea who the local managers are - if you do, please list that info.
