Administrator (Former Employee) – Gillette, WY – April 6, 2017
Fast pace and was exposed to unethical practices among management and field workers. Management was not qualified to be running a division office. Unacceptable language, alcohol & drug use. Not a company I would consider working for again. Home office was amazing to work with and some of the co-workers in the district.
Good Insurance, no limit on hours worked, good pay.
I landed a job with CUDD after taking a layoff with another company. I can definitely say that you will lean a few things working here. You can do everything from fracking to coiled tubing. There are quite a few people with a long amount of tenure, with that said there are also many more employees with little to no experience at all. CUDD will allow you to get your foot in the door of the completions industry but advancement is up to you.... If you are prepared to stay awhile. It is very difficult to incite change at this company as many things are done in the name of repetition or tradition rather than being grounded in logic. The initial instruction and training is adequate, but follow up is oftentimes poor. It is worth noting that employee compensation is fairly low, but you will get plenty of overtime. One of the most impressive features of CUDD is their financial stability and their retention of various markets even through the downturn. With that said much of the equipment is worn and extremely outdated. The various districts tend to play well with each other and the management is attentive. If you are looking for a company who will fill your career portfolio with experience, than you have found the right place.
Good experience, and a decent customer base.
Aged equipment, reluctance for proper maintenance. Nepotism
Corporate Engineer (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – February 11, 2017
- Worked well at first, but then manager stopped checking completely. - No direction or guidance to create a career. - Projects were interesting, but no support or guidance on how to handle. - Enjoyed my co-workers, but not the management. They should focus on empowering their managers so they in turn can empower their workers.
Perks of company truck, cell phone, lap top
Managed by fear and did not inspire collaboration or development.
Snubbing Operator (Former Employee) – Rock Springs, WY – January 15, 2017
Worked in Rock Springs, Wyo. From 1993-2000. Loved working there. Management at that time couldn't be beat. Was able to work alongside Bobby Joe, Doug Finley, George Hill and other greatly talanted people. Met others like Steve Winters, Ronnie Roles and others. Was never treated like a number, I was treated as an individual. I had some of the most memorable experiences of my life here. My only regret from here is that I quit to move back to Pa. Wish I would have known the oil and gas industry was going to come here. I would have still been with them.
Best money I ever made, great co-workers, good honest days work.
I was single, so I really don't have any. But others said the hours worked, with no time off
Like a lot of companies they train a lot on safety but after that you get to the field and it's all out the window. They hire no experience guys which is good to give people opportunities but they pay real low as well. Make sure you negotiate the pay before accepting the offer letter.
They don't have debt so that's good.
Basically they want you to dedicate your life to them and don't wanna pay the price for it.
the typical day was long depending on the job but most of the time it was long but u got to be with your coworkers and get to know them more they became your family and nothing was hard everyone worked together to get the job done
