Senior Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – January 25, 2017
Daily operations Prepares the crew and equipment for the job. Meet with the client and organize the operations. Helping the client data analysis Job reporting and prepare the equipment for the next operation.
Worked there 2 months and had trouble getting paid every single pay period. In fact it wasn't till 6 weeks after I left that I finally got my pay. Spent the first 2 weeks "training in Pa." which consisted mostly of sitting around BSing. Even though I already had experience from another company. Had to go through the whole "green hat" humiliation even though most of the hands there knew less than I did. During my time there I never saw anyone in management who came close to having a clue.
Also they pay salary, no overtime. So of course 20 30 hour days were not unusual
Overall a good place to work with a laid back environment
Wireline Operator (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 16, 2014
A typical day at work without a job to go on is going to the shop to calibrate tools and clean truck, usually off by noon. If there is a job to go on then it's usually a minimum of 12 hours from the time you leave the shop till the time you return.
I did learn the open hole side of work and learned how it operates and the process of logging a well bore.
