Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Broussard, LA – 5 July 2016
New management as of April 2016. Old management was fantastic to work for. Everyone was like family. Great teamwork. We worked hard and we played hard. Best job ever, the only reason I stayed nearly 22 years. Downside is, the oilfield is unreliable right now.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Yukon, OK – 11 January 2016
Great place to work. Unfortunatley with the price of oil and gas, I have recently been let go. I would definitely work there again given the opportunity. I started in the shop as a shop hand and after just a month was promoted to Dispatcher. Dispatchers duties are as follows, taking orders over the phone or via Email. Getting jobs together and ready for shipment. Shipping and receiving. Forklift and overhead crane operating. Keeping up with and maintaining inventory. Whether it be by getting tools reworked by machinists or ordering stock from other locations. I learned a lot at Stabil Drill about the ins and outs of Bottom hole assemble. Working with customers to make sure they get the correct tool on location on time. The co-workers there were great, I got along with everyone. Hardest part of the job was the on call weekends, but that's just part of the job. The best part of the job was the guys. We all got along well and cut up and told jokes. Good working environment when everyone gets along.
Occcasionally vendors would bring in free lunches or Stabil Drill would do cookouts
Since the oilfield has slowed down, times are tough. This job was not the worst I've had, but has shown no signs of improving anytime soon. Upper management has been really good to me, although there is no room to advance in the local company branch. Good experience and good pay when you can work a full time position.
Shop Hand (Former Employee) – Minot, ND – 1 May 2015
Stabil Drill is a company that respects it's workers and treats them like they are valuable and essential. I enjoyed my job there a great deal. I had a wide variety of tasks to accomplish and each one was worth doing.
Welder (Former Employee) – Broussard, LA – 6 January 2015
We would get to work at 6a.m. heating tool up to be worked on. Then prep the station we will be working at, once the tool has been heated to desired temp I would begin the welding process that the work order calls for. The co-workers are amazing its like a family they show love n respect to everybody. The hardest part of the job would b getting started early in the morning, having to adjust to the weather and all that. The most enjoyable part would be working with those guys and also payday.
Private Baseball Instructor (Current Employee) – Lafayette, LA – 20 May 2014
Learned to work and sell in a great business setting. The management staff helped us learn things that normal employees would not need to know. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that I was learning on the go and having a great time doing it.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – 7 January 2014
My day would start at about 3:00pm. I would get to work and that was the most busiest hour of the day. I would start loading and unloading trucks. Then after I had got all the trucks out of the yard then I start to sort through the tools that had came back from the oilfield. The ones that were used went to inspection and the ones that were not used went back on the racks by sizes. I would sometimes finsh about three in the morning so I would and help paint, or grind tools that needed to be finshed. The worst part of the job was staying up so late and by the time you got home the sun was shinning in your window.
