Great place for a start off but overall the schedule is NOT flexible, some weeks you work 7 days some you work 4 problem is they love to change the schedule 100 times a month. Been here a year and I can’t tell you how many missed events and plans I’ve had to cancel last minute due to all this. Then they wanna get mad at you when you miss to many days?
I started at Boomerang Tube, Liberty Tx Plant, in May of 2017 so far the pay hasn't been bad I've been getting 60 plus hours a week and we do get quarterly bonuses. After Hurricane Harvey they gave all hourly $500 gift cards and if you had damage they gave you another $500, we were back to work in less than two weeks after the storm. I've seen a lot of reviews that talked about how some of the management was not up to par, we are an oilfield supplier, most of the management team are experience with the division that they are in. Management with me has been very professional with me.
Good place to get your start in the industry, with great benefits.

This is a fairly new company that has struggled to keep afloat with the recent oil plunge. That being said, considering the hardships the company had endured with this, they are still here and running pipe daily. That shows they are doing something right, customer satisfaction is always met. The hours aren't bad, but the scheduling could be planned better.
A typical day at work usually starts in the lunch room. show up for daily orientation and safety meetings followed by shift change. Complete tasks at hand while working safely.
Prior to on the job training employees must complete some osha industrial safety courses. I learned a little bit about mill machinery operations, how to visually examine industrial tubing for flaws and how to do some maintenance to mill machinery.
Management and staff is always helpful.
In my opinion the hardest part of the job is the amount of fatigue a person must experience when working long hours.

This was one of the better jobs for me as the hours were abundant. I was always asked if I could work an extra shift, or stay over or come in early. The infrastructure of this company was very well established. The only downside is that aside from management, supervision seemed to have been hap-hazardly chosen. I have seen supervisors that deserve to be management, but maybe one or two. All of the management I encountered were extremely knowledgeable and experienced for their positions. Supervisors however often knew less than the employees, and were in place as task-masters for lack of a better word.
1 hour paid lunch, immense amount of hours when the market was up

This was one of the worst places i have ever worked. they only care about their bottom line. they will tell you that safety is number one then quality but its not its all about the production and safety is the last thing their concerned with. and they dont really care about their employees.
Management ruined what could have been a great place to work. The maintenance manager would not allow promotion from within and would go so far as to lie about positions. The production managers allowed poor work practices to continue and would not bring accountability to operators tearing up equipment. As long as you are a buddy of the supervisor, you could do whatever you want but if not, don't even sneeze wrong. Equipment is falling apart due to management not getting parts needed for proper repair. The company seems to be run by people that either don't know or don't care. Finally had all I could take and jumped on a better opportunity. Seriously consider not working here if you have ANY other option.
Worked at Boomerang since its inception in April of 2010. I learned an awful lot while working there. There are a lot of good people that work there that are very dedicated and great to work with. The best part of the job was that I truly loved working there.
