Has gone way down hill with changing pay and taking bonuses away. Now they are changing schedule to 16 on 5 off.. Management has really messed up ND district.. They think they can hire locals paying $14.5hr to start!! LMAO.. Walmart pays 20+.. You dont like the schedule leave, they dont care how many experienced hands they lose.. They also cant figure – more... out why they are having more injuries with all the experience gone!! Just a matter of time before they blow someone or several up.. – less

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

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

Cons: getting laid off
I really enjoyed working at Calfrac. They helped me obtain the certifications and would have helped me get more certifications for the betterment of the company and myself. It was an awesome, trusting working atmosphere
Has been a good experience but Im concerned about where the company is going.
Frac Hand / Level 3 Operator (Current Employee), Platteville, CO – January 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
Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Red Deer, AB – December 11, 2013
Pros: good company great benefits
Cons: well less money and a lack of job security
Great place to work the company does some really great things for their employees. When it comes to actually going out into the field... well just don't expect to go out in the field very much. Which means no bonus and less money in your pocket and if it keeps up expect lay offs.
