Apprentice electrician (Former Employee) – Rock Springs, WY – December 4, 2017
We would have to leave Rock springs at 5am, and drive 45 minutes to wamsutter, where the gas patch was located. We would have meetings after briefing every morning. We would always rotate who was with who and the different jobs we had so that all of us had the skills to do all the jobs. Mostly maintenece on existing sites, and new site construction builds where you could be there for up to a month depending on the size. Everyone that i worked with was more than helpful and it made the work go by fast.
BHI was a terrible place to work, you never know for sure when your supposed to come into work because even when the supervisor told you a time he would often show up 30min-1hour late and then not know what was going on that day.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Vernal, UT – May 2, 2017
Wake up before the sun, go to work, stretch, safety meeting, work tell lunch, half our break. Put in my 10 hours, then go home. Hardest part of the job was communicating with other employees, not a lot of English spoken.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Vernal, UT – June 12, 2016
I love work at BHI there are not so much pressure about the job. The owner treat employee like family. The hardest part of the job was the upper management didn't ask clerk opinion when they want to change some work flow, which sometimes it's not easy for us.
Good pay and benefits
It's not easy to grow, except if you close to the upper management
One of the lowest paying construction companies there are out there
Former journeyman (Former Employee) – New Town, ND – June 12, 2016
The work was typical oil field work , but the fireman's, so called , have never stumbled into MC-HL cable , in there supposed had 8 years in the trade. Also , foreman brought in a lot of his apprentice buddies from Colorado that didn't know anything . They Didn't care about journeyman that actually are well rounded & have been around. The foreman tried to intimidate people with his size , but mental capacity was very small.
Project Manager I (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – December 12, 2015
I have been in the oilfield for twenty five years, I have been through six slow periods, they seem to happen about every 4-6 years. and because I left my last company. I was put at the top of the list for the RIF. Experience had nothing to do with it, just time with the company. I am a little bitter about that. saw BHI place 5 persons the week before I was let go. Baker needs to spend some money on their equipment. It usually takes 2 or 3 days to work the bugs out then everything from there goes as planned. This is managements problem, there are persons in positions that have no reason to be in those positions. The hands really tried to be successful but without the backing of the yard, they didn't stand a chance to be good. the hardest part of the job was watching a frac crew struggle because of managements decisions. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping these young men and women develop into a cohesive unit and successfully finish an assigned job..
Lead Man (Former Employee) – Vernal, UT – October 25, 2015
This company was a good company to work for, but there was room for improvement. The workers were just a number. The owners just cared about money. As a worker I worked as hard as I could to help build the company. I liked the people I worked with.
An Average day were Answering phones, edit resumes for Client's Filing & Assemble Training Manual. Purging files we save to storing unit & this process was scanned files for storing. We Mailed out employees contract.
Management was great leaders
Co-workers were easy to work with.
There was no hard parts
The most enjoyable part was our boss always made sure we were ok. he would even treat us on Friday, by providing lunch.
Average contract company working for a large AE company who was working for the client
Procurement Engineer (Former Employee) – Spring City, TN – August 14, 2015
A typical day included getting a requisition of what is requested for procurement with the item not being adequately identified with no design output document or end use identified.
In order to resolve these problems, you had to talk to various individuals to determine what is really required and why it is required and get a design output document which specifies this component for a specific application. You then need to determine if the item was safety related or non-safety related and what quality and technical requirements needed to be imposed on the item based on the end use application including applicable code requirements, if appropriate.
The best part of the job was starting from not having a complete input to producing and outstanding technical and quality document.
