Way under my expectations.
Throughout the 6 months I worked there I was busy and made descent money only for 2 months the rest was a joke. Poor communication. Long stay at hotels paid day rate only 146$ gross with no meal allowance. Had to pay for my taxi every day to and from the shop.
Dispatch and most of the supervisors poorly communicate and have poor leadership skills. They despise rotators and if you’re not part of the closed circle of people they won’t event say hi to you. Some of them are convinced they have a godly mission. It wasn’t worth the money to stay away from your family. They bomb you with emails regarding security and lots of bla bla but on the field nobody cares about you. I was asked to do things I was not trained for and when you refuse they’ll bust you. Equipment is beaten up. Too many variables at work for it to be profitable. If equipment don’t break down, if coil tubing or wire line doesn’t screw it up, if weather conditions are ideal, if consultant has no other objections, and if and if and if , MAYBE, you’ll make some good money.
They have one big job Every once in a while but yet you’ve gotta be in the lucky crew dispatched over there. The majority of the jobs are small ones with low daily bonus and often they are far away 6-7 hours drive. And I almost forgot As long as you stink of alcohol or look high as a kite at work, that’s fine.... until you provoke an accident but until then you can waste yourself no worries.
