Field Sales? (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXOctober 4, 2014
Cons: not enough room. i am not a disgruntled employee, just one who was lied to and over-worked.promices made were never kept ect.
No need really. Their HR Dept. is run by an airhead and the L.O.C. manager is a liar. With that on your plate, would you further comment?

Very good company to work for, not much room for advancement
Field Service Tech I (Current Employee), Farmington, NMSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: excelent bennefits
Cons: long hours, no family time, no room for advancement
A typical day at work is very high paced and long hours. I have learned a lot about the inner workings of pumping units and the repair of many brands and makes of pumping units. Management is lacking in some aspects but is overall sufficiant. The hardest part of the job is the hours, we work long days and dont have much time in the evenings to spend – more... with family. My co-workers are easy to get along with and some are good teachers. What i enjoy most about the job is working outdoors and the variaty of different jobs we do. It is something new each day. – less

The Titanic at Least had a Band
On my way out (Current Employee), Greenville, TXAugust 30, 2014
Pros: good co-workers, and benefits
Cons: worst management i've ever seen, hr doesnt have a clue, high turnover, over 50% chance of bankruptcy, to many lies
I have never worked for such and unprofessional company in my entire career. Horribly mismanaged, micro-managed, constantly making changes, with no better results, long, long work hours weeks on end, even weekends, not time off, un-necessary high levels of stress. Given directives with timelines and no resources to complete tasks, unrealistic deadlines, – more... Vendors very aggressive on collections due to constant non-payment of their bills. Lie to vendors to keep materials coming in for production, with no intent to pay within net terms. Management does not care about you, this company preaches one thing and does another. Horrible place to make a career, good learning experience, good co-workers, all dealing with same issues, most everyone stays there for just the benefits. But the raises are eating up with the ever increasing cost of premiums. No longer a reason to stay, Weatherford has policies in place but they only follow their own policies if it suits them at the time. I've seen a lot of good employee's done dirty, just to place blame on the other guys to save their own butts, backstabbing culture, work under fear, not teamwork at all, and not care how it effects their lives and even health, no home life, no fun, and did I mention bad management. I give Weatherford a year or less before they are forced to file bankruptcy. This ship is sinking... – less
