I wasn't there for very long so I don't have much to say. they got me the training I needed to get to enter into the oilfield including my class 1 and after that I moved on to more competitive companys

Completions Engineer (Former Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – 28 September 2017
I worked in completions as an engineer. I started after a short stint with an oil company, and moved here to pursue a career with more field work.
The training is top notch. Halliburton gives you the tools to learn and succeed in your career.
The work is technically interesting, and in my small office it was diverse. It was demanding at times, and time in the field is often non negotiable and unexpected.
The culture wasn't what I expected. Hard work wasn't rewarded and it's easy to burn out given the work thats required. Most people I knew were always talking about a way out, moving to another company or career by taking the skills they had learned from Halliburton.
When the industry took a down turn, my office did little to help it's employees. There were widespread cuts, and questionable layoffs for months.

Horrible working conditions. Expected you to break laws and regulations on a daily basis. Very dangerous conditions. Management would deny this and threaten job if not complied with orders. I quit due to this.
