Frac Pump Operator (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 9 January 2019
If you're not one of the ball suckers then you don't get the jobs with the good bonus attached to it. Low base salary that's barely minimum wage, the money is in the job bonuses. Really great benefit package. Most of the guys are ok, but there are several "typical" oilfield workers who think that they're "god's gift" and who party all night and try to be "safe" all day.
Benefits, all training including class 1 driver's license provided
Senior Regional Manager (Former Employee) – Kuala umpur, Malaysia – 1 April 2018
Halliburton is a very large global corporation that serves high volume latest technology oil & gas services throughout the world. This company has literally hundreds of positions available at any given time from entry to upper management levels. Hard work is rewarded here and compensation benefits are normally of a high standard. My career spanned from Lab Technician to field engineer to management over a twenty one year span. In my latest years with the company certain philosophy changes and work ethics were not in my opinion a reflection of the early years.
Plenty of new opportunities, good remuneration, solid company
new directives and philosophies may have eroded company ethics

I so much loved my job at Halliburton unfortunately I just happened to hit it at the wrong time during a down turn in the economy and unfortunately lost my job however they pay well treat you well and as far as the work environment it's like family.
Operator (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 20 May 2018
Has no work/life balance. Management is not open to employees and not willing to communicate. It is the worst company I know. Pay was not good. Not willing to provide training. Not ethnical, culture was not good.
Tubing Conveyed Perforating Operator Level 2 (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 19 November 2018
like the title says, it's Halliburton. They train the oilfield, you'll be a number amongst thousands. really not much different than the other large service companies. If your looking for a job, chances are good you can get on with them.
PE Business Development Technical Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 November 2017
Looked forward to going to work every day, for 20+ years . I learnt that limitations where what I put on myself, but would be suportted if I wanted to push the limits. The most enjoyable part of my job was deal with internal and external people in the industry.
After being hired within 1 week they gave me the warehouse manager position because they felt i had great work ethic and was very supportive in my handling off all duties including procurement and dispatching of drivers. wish they never left Estevan i might still be employed by them.
Halliburton is an interesting place to work. You can acquire huge experience in working on halliburton equipment.
Mechanical Technician II (Current Employee) – Rivers – 11 June 2018
Working at halliburton Nigeria gave a lot of exposure in my area of specialization. These includes but not limited to hydraulics, pneumatics, safety, documentation, preventive and unscheduled repair on engines from different manufacturers. Employees development comes once in a while but worth a lot if it does come. Safety is part of the business without safety no work. Most enjoyable part of the job is employees cooperation. There is this zeal to assist fellow employee when the need arise. Hardest part of the job is coping with low income.
