Great company when there is work.
Frac Pump Operator (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB9 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.
Pros
Benefits, all training including class 1 driver's license provided
Cons
Low base salary

It is a diverse and every challenging company to work for. There are no limits to the heights you wish to achieve, and is no different from any other large graphically encompassing company.

Halliburton is an interesting place to work. You can acquire huge experience in working on halliburton equipment.
Mechanical Technician II (Current Employee) –  Rivers11 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.
Pros
Free medical you and family, housing up front
Cons
Working seven days a week.
