Was a great place to work until i requested they submit me for another position in my home state allowing me to spend more time with my wife and kids. But because they didn't want to give my contract to another recruiter, they refused to allow m to to apply for that contract
Pros
Good pay, plenty of overtime
Cons
Management is only worried about their own agendas

I worked rotational work in North Dakota. It was great pay and high energy. PGE was a great company to work for and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

A company which you will definitely learn what recruitment means, fairly paid but you will not have a work life balance, they love partying and there is a huge competition. People that they have already been there for several years have a huge advantage over the newbies and trust me they are not fairly treated.
Pros
Fairly paid
Cons
No work-life balance, too much partying, it is like an heresies

Progressive Recruitment...Progressive Global Energy...whatever you may call it. A company whose ideology is that people are (and should be) interchangeable widgets and that if the correct procedures are in place, anyone can do the job. A quality company is about supporting it's employees. High quality people do high quality work.

It's about time this company starts paying their employees a livable wage in Houston, Texas (the fourth largest city in the United States).

Ten dollars an hour is not a livable wage. As the industry gains momentum, employees will inevitably leave at the first opportunity because Progressive fails to keep up with industry demands. I fear for the assets and contractors that rely on Progressive to provide quality candidates when they fail to pay their employees a livable wage.


Low morale and complacency will eventually lead to failure.


The hours are week-on/week-off 2:30AM-2:30PM. A dangerous time for employees to commute as bar patrons flood the roadways.


Whether you're a company or a contractor, I'd recommend avoiding Progressive.
Pros
Intelligent and responsive work colleagues.
Cons
Unlivable wage, corporate bullying during wage inquiries, zero room for advancement.

When I started we where having some major communication problems. They tried to brush it off on the company I was going to work for but I think they could have done much better.
After I started work I was told that if there was any problems it was there job to help me find another position. Do to some accounting errors with the company I was working with many people where let go because they lost a lot of business. Going off of what I was told I let them know and now I wait.

I have stopped receiving call backs and don't get any response to my emails so I guess they have decided not to help me.
Pros
Seem like good people
Cons
Poor Communication to the poit you just give up

Progressive is a contract staffing agency. Staff is friendly and seem helpful but are somewhat unorganized. They are not fully forthcoming with information or just don't have all the facts when asking about contracts or job placement. Once your contract is in effect and you are working everything does flow smoothly. Communication is hit and miss as you can't leave voicemails for urgent issues. Progressive does seem to be a good place to work for once you get past some hurdles at the beginning of each contract.
Pros
Pay, Placements at Good Co's.
Cons
Contract Issues, High Insurance Costs, Communication

Progressive Global Energy stopped paying my per diem and never bothered to reach out and inform me until 3 weeks later. They will promise you the world and deliver nothing.
