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
