i learned to always get along with the people you work with and always have good communication about the job at hand. became very familiar with safety procedures and how to work in a safe manner. the hardest part about the job was only being home about 6 days a month and not being able to see family.

Good money but management puts you in unsafe situations
Solids Control Technician (Former Employee), Mandan, ND – March 7, 2015
Pros: Company truck, pay, benefits
Cons: Lack of Management, Safety is a joke, Supervisors
The job was great . The supervisors are lazy and have no sense of leadership . Most of the techs were really cool and easy to work with . The rest were lazy pigs . The contractors BOS hired were mutants – more... that took up space and got in the way of good techs trying to get the job done . 20 and 10 schedule was perfect in my opinion . If you got put on a good rig life was good . If you got put on a bad rig you were left for dead . – less
Solids Control Technician (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – February 7, 2015
Pros: good $, great healthcare, company truck
Cons: work alone, weather always a factor, safety first (laughable)
Typical day you will be on your feet all or most of your 12 hour shift, you will be mixing chemical and balancing the exchange of water to and from the rig while drilling ahead. The best/worst part of – more... the job is the same thing; you work alone, no supervisor, no other coworkers, just you. It can be overwhelming when things breakdown, it also allows you to manage your day as you see fit, as long as you meet the needs of the rig. – less
Field Service Technician (Current Employee), Rio Vista, TX – January 8, 2015
Cons: inexperienced supervisor
Overall good company, but lacks support in the area I am currently working in. It is very difficult to get needed tools and other equipment needed to perform the job correctly and inexperienced supervisor.
Lead Field Technician (Current Employee), Smithfield, PA – November 2, 2014
Pros: salary and benefits including a work truck and gas card
Cons: very long hours. very little home life. promotions and raises
Bos is a good company to work for. The balance between career and home life can be difficult. compensated very well for the work being done. The only issue I have is that the company doesn't follow through with many of its promises. mostly referring to raises and promotions.
Cons: working directly with houston's hr department is a mess!
If they could get rid of 1 person, I think it would be an Ok place to work. The person who call herself the HRIS/Payroll Manager is a liar and a manipulator. She also does not know what confidentially – more... means. She does not understand how to team play. She wants to be the only person that gets gloried and if she's not.....beware! Although the HR Director knows about her lies, manipulation and fraternizing with employees, she does nothing. She has the HR Director wrapped around her finger. – less
