Logging While Drilling Feild Engineer (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 22 February 2018
You work according to their schedule. Family is zero priority to them. You are regularly threatened that you could be fired if you don't work your tail off. You do get paid well. You are treated very poorly. I would never return to Canada district. UK district, different story. I would go back there in a second.
Interesting, lucrative, but no loyalty to employees
Completions Engineer (Former Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – 28 September 2017
I worked in completions as an engineer. I started after a short stint with an oil company, and moved here to pursue a career with more field work.
The training is top notch. Halliburton gives you the tools to learn and succeed in your career.
The work is technically interesting, and in my small office it was diverse. It was demanding at times, and time in the field is often non negotiable and unexpected.
The culture wasn't what I expected. Hard work wasn't rewarded and it's easy to burn out given the work thats required. Most people I knew were always talking about a way out, moving to another company or career by taking the skills they had learned from Halliburton.
When the industry took a down turn, my office did little to help it's employees. There were widespread cuts, and questionable layoffs for months.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Distrito Federal – 12 September 2017
It is a great place to work, although you would need to establish your goals clearly before or once you are on the job, for instance, you will be away from home for long periods, so compromise and commitment from your part should be a must.
Good pay rates
Being far from home and cities for extended periods
