I work as hard as I can all day long until the job gets done. It gets me through the day and a paycheck at the end of the pay period. I miss home and would like to get back closer to it.

Operator (Former Employee), Mount PleasantJuly 14, 2014
Pros: make money
Cons: hours, scheduling, management, staff, unrealistic standards
In this industry, you can expect there to be a lot of competition. Many companies have come and gone with the Marcellus shale. This company has been around long before this shale was discovered. It will probably remain long after its completion. However, my experience with the people who comprise this companies backbone has been less then pleasant. – more... It was bad enough that particular divisions were comprised mostly of relatives of the boss. However, the most ridiculous aspect of this company is their hypocritical "Pillars of Business". How a company can regularly harass and belittle its employees for actions carried out on a daily basis by the management is beyond my comprehension. Then there is the pure lack of professionalism from the staff. Missed commissions, unpaid hours, and the manipulation of payroll reports. There are a lot of more qualified companies out there to work for. It is only one mans experience but I can say I am not the only person who feels this way. – less

Never worked here (Former Employee), ND, WYJuly 11, 2014
Pros: money
Cons: 12on 12 off, high pressure
I work around these guys on oil rigs, they are away from home for months. These are mwd, mud engineers and directional hands. They are worn out when I see them. Their supervisirs tell them the same story often when it comes to days off, that they couldn't find anyone to relieve them. So they are forced to stay at the rig another 4 weeks. Mind you, they – more... live in sub par conditions, sharing a bed room with a total stranger for 6+ weeks. – less

Drilling Fluids Engineer (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXJuly 9, 2014
Pros: independence
Cons: long drives
This company offers a great support system for their engineers, including supplementary learning materials, classes, and mentors. They implement integrity and other core values in every job. I learned to sample and test drilling fluids additives, make treatment plans for these additives, order and manage product inventory, and to react quickly and effectively – more... when problems arise. Co-workers are supportive and intelligent. Management is helpful and effective at problem solving. – less
