Senior Warehouseman (Current Employee), Williston, ND – January 22, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: payroll problems
Long hours which was fine with me. The training program was good but was always hard to get the training needed. I had two excellent managers above me who really cared about production but also cared about there employees and their families. I have enjoyed my time with Halliburton and was able to climb the ladder a little but I feel that I had plateaued – more... out with them and would not go any higher even though my skill set would of allowed me too.
Great company but for someone who has a little bit higher goals and wants to learn more and do more, I don't think that it was a good fit. However I have no regrets Halliburton was a great place to start if someone is considering them as an employer I would have to say they will take good care of you.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be working with so many professional people to acheive common goals in a professional environment. – less

Frac/Acid (Former Employee), Fort Lupton, CO – January 15, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: work over 100 hours a week at times
the managers would say going out for a one day job and it would end up being 3 days. you wouldnt be able to go home and you wouldnt have enough food or supplies to last more then a day. They would say theyed take care of are food and nessasatys and they only bought food three times so they feed us once a day.
Was it hard for you to get hired as an Admin Asst?

Bit Fabricator (Current Employee), Grand Junction, CO – January 8, 2013
Pros: job security when the economy falls through.
Cons: under paid for work.
my typical day at work is like any manufacturing line. you do the same thing over and over again. Thanks to this company i have learned a lot of helpful tools to further me in life, both personally and business wise. But not without forcing things to get it accomplished. Management is extremely flaky, distracted, and undecided in everything they do. – more... The hardest part about working here for me is knowing that i bust my tale everyday i come and barely get compensated for it. But on the other side everyone i work with looks to me for advice because of the knowledge i have gained. – less
Operations Assistant 1 (Former Employee), Homer City, PA – January 7, 2013
Pros: safety first, great team work, and very good communication.
Cons: being very "fatigued"
A typical day at work is knowing ur working with different people each time but were all treated the same and equal. " Like Family".
I have learned so much like operating bulk trucks and started to run the displacement on the pump trucks thanks to one of my favorite supervisors in the field "confidential name" and "Mr. confidential" which was Mr.supervisor's – more... pump truck operator in training at the time.
The hardest part of the job is missing your loved ones at home and hoping for the best for everyone including yourself to make it home "SAFELY"
The most enjoyable part of the job is when the job is successfully completed and the company is very pleased with the whole entire job and knowing no one was hurt in any way.Then we get to go home to c our loved ones get something to eat,shower, and go to sleep in your own bed at home. – less
Materials Supervisor (Current Employee), Houston, TX – January 3, 2013
Pros: training and development, networking, decent salary
Cons: advancement, career growth, work/life balance
It's a great company to get your start. They try to get the high potentials trained as time and budget allows. The big problem with that is that they are usually pushing you to the limit on time. Once a manager likes what you do and has any sort of clout with senior management then you will get locked into a position. It's all about what's best for – more... the individual manager rather than the company. – less
N2 Operator (Former Employee), Rock Springs, WY – January 1, 2013
Pros: good pay great benefits
Cons: 2 weeks on duty and 1 week off hard to get for your body to get used to
Like any oil service companies Halliburton is great place to learn the trade. Training is top notch and much can be learned there. The hours can be long 14+ hours some days, but the pay check is well worth the time in the field. Maintainance days are like a regular 8 to 5 work day. Friends can be quickly made becuase of the time spent in the field. – more... Most of the expeienced hands are willing to pass on the skills to sucede. The tasks can be challenging but not to dificult if attention is paid. – less
