Family like environement, long day and nights
OA1 (Former Employee), Montgomery, PASeptember 2, 2014
Pros: overtime and benfits package
Cons: long days and a lot of time away from my family and friends
My day started early in the morning with a long van ride to location. Followed by a long day outside in the elements. After the day was done it was back to the hotel for roughly 4-7 hours of sleep and then back to work. This was repeated for 14 straight days and then we were given off for 7 days.
In the course of my careers in the oilfield I have learnt – more... many things about geology and the ways of hydraulic fracturing. I am a stronger and wiser person due to the labor intensive work we did during the rigging phases. I can see things as they are and I can see them in the future to know how quickly we can rig it back out or change iron if needed.

Upper management was unsupportive to the crews and employees in the field. Field supervisors on the other hand were willing to accept reality that people needed off and that we worked very hard to earn time off.

The most difficult part of my job was being away from my family and friends. Spending 14 days with the same 15 people made it easier because those coworkers became my family and closest friends. The job at Halliburton put me in a place of finical freedom and gave me the extra money needed to get ahead and provide for my family. – less

Just a day in the life of a DD
Deep water directional driller (Former Employee), Broussard, LAAugust 13, 2014
Pros: 401k, 15% of stock option, great day rate
Cons: terrible salary ( but you work for the day rate), work alot of days (life of the dd)
Well I will always bleed red. I chose the lifestyle, while not for everyone, if you want to be engrossed in your work, Halliburton is for you. I worked 240-300 days a year but I was paid for it. Long, detailed work but I was fairly compensted. Great 401k stock options and day rate. Salary sucked but I worked for my day rate which was very fair. I would – more... recommend Gulf Coast to anyone looking to get into oilfield, Broussard, LA. You will be engrossed in your work but you will also know your job and if you pay attention, alot of other peoples job also. – less

Are you smarter than a 5th Grader?
Technician (Former Employee), TexasAugust 9, 2014
Pros: average pay, great people, opportunities for advancement
Cons: lousy health benefits, middle management minions, ridiculous hse
This COULD be a great place to work if... They stopped treating their employees like they were 5th graders. You'd expect a company of this size to hire competent people to do their job, and for the most part they do. They just don't treat their employees like they are competent. Their safety program is beyond ridiculous, to the point that it takes away – more... from any feeling of competence. They waste more time making sure your safe that it interferes with the job you were hired for. They assume no one has any common sense what so ever and that makes working there not enjoyable and it hurts morale severely. They hire safety managers who have never worked in an industrial environment except to be a manager of an industrial environment. They have no clue that all rules can't apply to every area of the plant. It's depressing and annoying. Area managers will not stand up to safety managers, they toe the line like good little boys and girls. There is nothing wrong with safety in the work place, I get that, but I'm not 10 years old, I know when to use safety glasses and safety shoes, and when it isn't necessary. The only good thing to say about the safety program is the Stop Work Policy, giving anyone the authority to stop a job due to safety concerns. – less

Interview
Mechanic Technician (Former Employee), Elmendorf,TXAugust 8, 2014
Pros: asked me for an interview
Cons: interview way too long and too detailed
A manager called me on the telephone for an interview.I went to the interview and found out that all the parking spaces were taken in front of the building.I drove around and waited for about 10 minutes for someone to pull out.I got inside with about 10 minutes before the interview.I was called in by a floor supervisor.It was a two part question interview.He – more... asked me the general questions for the first part.The second part he said there was no right or wrong answer.I found out for this not to be the case.It was heavy detailed questions about diesel engines,brakes,hydraulics and a Lot of electrical.I was struggling during the whole time and the supervisor did not even try to help me.Not the place I would want to work.The whole interview took two and a half hours!Not an easy verbal test for me.I was looking forward to cross training into this field but it seems like they already want you to know everything and just go to work on the first day without any training.Not what I want.If you have a Lot of diesel and a Lot of electrical experience I would say go to the interview.If not, do not go.It was just a big disappointment for me. – less
