Warehouse Materials Specialist (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – July 17, 2016
I have learned much from Halliburton.Inventory control, Procurement, and Logistics are areas i was not familiar with before coming to Halliburton. Co-workers are the heart of Halliburton. they have fantastic people there who share knowledge and are willing to help other out, Management as at any job have their ups and downs. i was very fortunate to have an awesome Manager that believed in his team and backed us up when necessary.
Hardest part of the job is trying to get further training. We usually had to learn on our own. Most enjoyable part was the people and all the team events we held.
Great benefits package and fantastic people to work with

I think halliburton is a great company for people that want to get there foot in the door and make a bit of money. The only reason im leaving is i would like to be home ever night if that wasnt and issue i would not even consider leaving the company.
long hour and away from home for extended periods of time
Working in the Halliburton R&D facility was an enjoyable experience.
Technician-Mechanical (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – October 2, 2013
It's a great company to work for. One is taught how to work safe. Co-workers are good in general. Everybody respect each other. My job there as a mechanical technician in the R&D facility was great. I learned new things and most of the time there was something new to do and to learn.
MWD Assistant (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – December 29, 2014
-Before you do something we need to make sure everything go smoothly for instance no injuries. - I learned a lot about field work and how they work - Planning and execution was greatly stressed upon workers at the field
This company from the outside looks like it can offer you a bright future. However when they do the interview process and the new hire process they roll out the red carpet and treat you like a king. However in a short while later you realize it was all fluff. There is no team moral boosting, if you want a raise or to try a different task you have to fight for it for a full year before they even consider it. Too many managers contradicting other managers. However this place has great benefits and pensions. If you can work for a sub-par wage, and great benefits, fighting for your small raises and work in a place that recognizes you faults before ever acknowledging your successes, then go work here. Oh and they say that safety is number one but they try to prevent employees from seeking medical attention so the managers get their safety bonus at the end of the year.
demanding enviroment with little rewards, no yearly raises, have to fight for raises, poor company morale, too much red tape
An excellent working environment and awesome boss.
Material / Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Nisku, AB – April 11, 2013
A typical day at work starts with a Tool meeting where someone from the team is expected to share their value or safety moment. The rest of the day just go bye quickly because there is always something to do.
Good employees and team members with mutual respect and good work environment

Electronic Technician (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – September 9, 2013
I started at Halliburton when I finished Lambton College as a Electrical Technician I was responsible for the units in the field while I was on site as well as the repairs to the units when the got back to the shop. The shift work was 10 days on 4 days off of 8 hour shifts but while in the field shifts could last anywhere from 8-16 hours giving a lot of opportunity for overtime. The management that I answered to was very knowledgeable and willing to help whenever it was needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was different all of the time and since technology is always changing and upgrading there is always going to be more to learn. The hardest part of the job was in the field when there is no cell reception and needed to ask a question you would basically be stranded until you figure it out.
Heavy duty mechanic (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – April 22, 2014
the last 2 and 1/2 years have been great up until recently. Currently we do not have a shop foreman and they do not care about hiring new employees to replace the currently understaffed mechanic's shop.
Cement Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – June 9, 2014
Typically I will complete any testing that needs to be done first thing and then work on results and anything else the customer requires. I have learned the processes of how a well is cemented and how much work actually goes into it.
