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

Warehouseman (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 May 2015
It is a fast paced environment. There were challenges each day, however it kept me motivated to make new targets each day and achieve those challenges. My coworkers were fun and allowed for the day to run smoothly and stress free.
Sales Manager - Cement Canada (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 April 2015
Halliburton is renowned as a training company. They provide superior training at the beginning and intermediate levels. This company promotes based on performance and has clear development plans for the beginning stages of your career. I would not recommend Halliburton for a life long career, but if you are looking to be trained then they could be considered.
Operator I - Frac / Acid (Current Employee) – Clairmont, AB – 24 March 2015
I love Halliburton - A few changes could be made with supervisors, but it's all good. Right now, due to low oil prices, my future is not secure here. I don't know if tomorrow is going to be my last day or not.
E-Tech (Former Employee) – Clairmont – 9 March 2015
a typical work day started with a safety meeting, then work was distributed and worked accordingly. I mostly worked on the mobil rigs programming and pre-maintance. my co-workers were knowledgeable and friendly. the hardest part of the job was the issolation I found i was working a lot by myself and tho I was able to complete the tasks at hand there seemed to be a staffing issue which lead to overworked individuals and frustration in the workplace. the best part of the job was the people that worked there the long time employees are knowledgeable and know their job well
Excellant company to work for, very good salary good benefits. Overall good culture for learning and working for them. Not very good job security
Electronics Technician (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 4 March 2015
I enjoyed going to work each day because there was something to learn everyday. A typical day involved installing a network or calibrating a mag meter, radiation meter. There was always something new to learn. Management was always helpful with any problems. my coworkers were excellent we were a tight knit group that stood up for one another. The hardest part was the extremely long hours we sometimes had to work. The most enjoyable was working with my hands and accomplishing tasks. This created a great feeling.
Field Operator/Crew Lead (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 March 2015
The amount of hours worked does not reflect in the pay. It would if the health and safety rules around hours worked were followed. For example after 12 hours of work you are to stop working. This does not happen which leaves lots of room for life threatening mistakes.
Service Operator (Former Employee) – Regina, Sk – 28 February 2015
Halliburton is a great place to work you have a lot of opportunities with learning new roles. A typical day here was a 12-13 hour shift working in all weather conditions. You had to be willing to travel I spent my time between MB,SK, and AB.
