Tool Hand Superviser (Current Employee), Medicine Hat, ABMay 15, 2013
Pros: good money
Cons: not creating things, and there is no passion in the industry.
I have been working for the company for almost 3 yrs. I have moved up very quickly and the pay is great. I have learned a lot, but I have begun to missing cooking and being in a high paced environment. Most of my co- workers are great. I think the hardest part of my job is trying to fix things when they go wrong. At those times everyone is watching – more... you, plus dealing with all the top guys on lease and watching on line back at the head offices. At the same time that is my favorite parts of the job, being in the fire (so to speak), figuring out what is wrong and the high off getting it all done. – less

Good place to make a lot of money
Frac/acid. Blender operator (Current Employee), Medicine Hat, AlbertaMarch 3, 2013
Pros: could easily make up to $8000 to $10000 a month when busy and when the equipment is working
Cons: long hours, low salary that you have to live off during spring break up, have to travel long distances to get to work
Good place to work. Equipment is a bit out dated and pretty worn out.
Bonus structure is ok. Salary sucks
Most co-workers are fine to work with
Don't expect to see your family much with their 15 on and 6 off schedule. This would be a great job for the single person
You either stay in hotels (usually very nice places) or in camps.

HSE Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 17, 2014
I am not going to go into details about my experiences at Halliburton.

I did like the fact that Halliburton has a very strong safety and training program. What i experienced was the lack of follow-up support and training from the front line management.

Good company if near family
hourly (Current Employee), north dakotaDecember 14, 2014
Pros: compensation, benefits
Cons: time away from home and family
The company is fine, but being away from family is too hard to deal with. Compensation and benefits are very good, but rent in the area eats up the extra money you receive.

They need to have a dedicated trainer instead of the supervisors trying to do this and everything else.

Field Materials Coordinator (Current Employee), TexasDecember 11, 2014
10 days/nights on and 4 days/nights off. 12 hour days. Overtime makes your money unless you are not allowed overtime then the stuff you deal with daily isn't worth the money you earn.
