Productive
Service Supervisor (Current Employee), Duncan, OKMarch 29, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
-A typical day at work consists of running the job from the tech command center which includes monitoring pressure, chemicals, and amount of job proppant used. Attending and facilitate safety meetings, complete job safety analysis documentation, and ensure the location is properly rigged up/down in a safe and efficient manner while making last minute – more... decisions with safety procedures and protocols in mind. Operate and maintain quality assurance which includes accurate job tickets and correct stage totals according to the job proposal.

-Things I learned :Job Site Safety Leader (JSSL). For each location, I was required to complete job safety analysis documentation (JSA’s) – making notes of and listing methods to avoid various hazards.
I also managed the well site area to guarantee that all tasks of the well audit checklist were met and done correctly.

- (Co-Workers) Because you are with these guys more than you are with your own familey, you develop a bond with the guys you work with. Because in the end they are your familey aslo.

- The hardest part of the job is: Rigging up and Rigging down a location, but once you learn how to swing a hammer the right way its pretty easy.

- The most enjoyable part of the job: is the different things you can learn to do. – less

My Time at Halliburton
Service Operator II (Former Employee), Duncan, OKMarch 25, 2014
Pros: great benifits
Cons: poor direction from upper management
At Halliburton I was on a 4 week on and 2 week of schedule which was different at first but I came to enjoy it. I learned a lot about the oil field and high pressure pumping during my time there. I did not find the job was as physically challenging as some had said it would be. I always enjoyed the time I spent working along side my co-workers, I have – more... always been a very social person so that was probably one of the best aspects of the job. Probably the most difficult part of the job as I was a member of a group that traveled from crew to crew as a special service division was dealing with second set of supervisors, first being our supervisors in Duncan OK and the supervisors where we have been sent at the time which the two groups never seemed to see eye to eye and we were always caught up in the middle. – less

Working with state of the art systems
Cementing - Bulk Plant Operations (Current Employee), Zanesville, OHMarch 21, 2014
Pros: top of the line systems for loading/unloading bulk materials
Cons: old school and not working towards world class management systems
Technology is state of the art but very limited in advancing based on my knowledge and abilities. Internal systems is based off the buddy system and not what you know or have to offer for the company.

Cement crew (Current Employee), Zanesville, OHMarch 20, 2014
Pros: benefits and as soon as your hired benefits start.
Cons: you tend to feel you have to walk on egg shells at all times.
Usually get called in anytime during a six days on rotation. When you get called in you respond to teh yard and pre trip your vehicle and then meet with the supervisor your going to be with for a safety briefing. Once briefing is complete and a determination of who is doing which job on th elocation we are responding to. Then we drive to location and – more... once the rig is ready we drive on and set up our trucks to pump cement into the well. We rig up with 2 inch iron pipe and 4 inch water lines to from the pump truck to the rig well. Then when ready we operate the cement bulk trucks and send powder form cement mixture to pump truck. Once job is completed we rig down by removing iron pipe and water lines. Then we drive back and post trip our vehciles and clean them. – less

very busy environment, quick learning, no free time
Sr. Materials Control Specialist (Former Employee), Brighton, COMarch 15, 2014
Pros: can learn a lot, great benefits
Cons: thankless job, no free time
I learned quite a bit a Halliburton. One of the jokes that we used to say is that 1 year at Halliburton is equal to 2 years at any other company. This company basically 'throws you in the fire' when you first start and you never look back. Halliburton is perpetually busy and you feel like you are never ahead and always struggling to keep your head above – more... water. Many of the departments are understaffed and everyone does what they can to get by. I worked in the corporate offices in Houston, TX and traveled a lot to the field and worked in the field camp in Brighton, CO permanently. The culture of Halliburton is definitely work above all else including family and personal life. It makes you feel important and that your job is worthwhile, however, I personally do not believe you should live to work. I think one should work to live. Everybody at Halliburton honestly does get along for the most part and is nice. It seems like a massive family and you can ask questions with impunity, b/c that's a great way to learn. Halliburton was very enjoyable when I traveled with the company and got to meet many people and taught people. The toughest part of working for Halliburton was that working in one of the busiest field camps in the nation, if not the busiest in Brighton, CO. Having been to many other field camps, Brighton was always struggling to stay afloat in all departments. Halliburton tries to corner the market and take on more work than it can maybe handle. This is a very good problem to have, however, it takes a huge toll on the employees trying to ensure the business does not suffer. This especially is on display among the Support Staff. – less
