Job security, yes. Advancement, maybe
Transport driver, Dispatcher (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXDecember 17, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: good 'ol boy system
Good old boy system is pretty strong, or at least in San Antonio. Qualified Applicants are looked over for "buddies" regularly. Training is available. Pay is good and compares to other oil service companies. Work is steady as they have grown to 4 crews in this district in just over a year.

Logistics driver
logistics (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXNovember 11, 2014
Pros: no layoffs and good hours
Cons: unqualified people in positions of power and good old boy system.
The logistics department has good management. This department gives u days off when u need them and u mostly go home every night, but if you push your self you could stay out in the truck and make some serious money. Starting pay is aound 17.00 but crazy hours if u want to push yourself (best check was 4700.00 for 15 days before taxes). The culture – more... here is mostly friendly. Cement depatment is also good but they just started the department so they are starting to get work. Logistics divers average around 160 to 190 hours on a full 15 day hitch( your 6 days off affects every other paycheck). They will let u work 12 hours in yard, not like Sanjel which only gives you 8 hours in yard. Schedule here in San Antonio TX is days 15 on and 6 days off and 40.00 perdiem daily when you go to the well site. Frac is hard due to the constant work on valves and seats on pump trucks. If you are frac they always give u a hotel room as long as you live out town, not like Sanjel which gives u 30 days in holtel and after that you need to find a place to rent. They have been hiring people with no cdl's but just the permit and training them in the yard. The yard is 10 minutes from San antonio, which is a very festive city.

hardest part of the job
Electronic Field Technician (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 14, 2014
Pros: overtime and benefits
Cons: very dangerous and hazardous job
Hardest part of the job is that we work 15 or more days strait with 16 or more hours in a day. We travel 4 or more hours away and stay away for how long the job needs or until we are relieved. Job is really hazardous to your health because your exposed to many different toxic chemicals.You work around high pressure lines that hold over 1200 pounds of – more... pressure that can easily break. – less

Amazing people and great times
Electronic Technician (Current Employee), Philipsburg, PAOctober 7, 2014
Pros: hours, people
Cons: training, leadership, hours
Calfrac found me when I got out of the MArines and hired me as an electronic technician. Everyday is a rush, something new happening or changing. Oilfield's not for everyone but if you're willing to put your time in, it will get recognized.

Pros: pay
Cons: supervisors/ mgmt.
Typical Oilfield Jobs. Hard work, long hours. Decent pay if you figure it on 60-80 hour work weeks. MGT up and down. Typical Preach Safety, but don't dare let it affect job completion.

Great money
Electronics Technician (Former Employee), PennsylvaniaNovember 30, 2013
A company that definitely pays very well but at great cost to the employee. There was no schedule or rotation to speak of and an atmosphere of "work until you drop" was the norm.

I liked this job
Crew leader (Former Employee), Smithfield, PAAugust 7, 2013
This is the gas and oil field. There was something to learn everyday. While being a very physical job is was quite fascinating. The hours were 3 weeks in a hotel and one week off a month going from days to nights 15 to 20 hours a day. Although the hours and the job were very difficult I liked the fact that I was learning something new everyday as the – more... oilfield changed. I really liked that I advanced rather quickly through hard work. I liked this job. – less

Supervisor/District Trainer (Former Employee), Grand Junction, COMay 14, 2013
I love my job. I enjoy the people that I work with. I don't mind being out of town. Two weeks on and two weeks off. I've learned everything to know about Fracing. And I enjoy it. The company I work at now is cutting everything back. And have lost a lot of there work. I need something more stable. I'm the motivator at Calfrac. And as sad as it makes – more... me to leave I feel like its time to move on. – less

Has been a good experience but Im concerned about where the company is going.
Frac Hand / Level 3 Operator (Current Employee), Platteville, COJanuary 3, 2013
I enjoyed working for Calfrac for the last year and a half, but lately the company has slowed down quite a bit. Calfrac is also changing its pay structure to hourly, as opposed to a salary with frac bonus's. This really takes out the oppertunitty to make good money. Im confident that the change is going to drop my yearly income 10 to 15 grand a year.
Alot – more... of the time I feel the pump hands are standing around in the yard with no direction after all the pump maintence is done. – less
