Front Line Leader/Field Safety (Former Employee), Canton, PA – August 6, 2015
Pros: Company truck
Cons: Not enough sleep
Typical day is a minimum 12 hour shift with about 2 hours of total drive time. Hardest part of my job was to have enough safety gear on hand. Most enjoyable part of my job was teaching the importance of safety to young workers.
loved the type of work, disliked being away for so long and bad management.
BULK PLANT OPERATOR (Former Employee), Williston, NORTH DAKOTA – July 18, 2015

bad management learned a lot about bulk plant operation i enjoyed having so much overtime and long hours disliked how supervisiors didn't do job correctly and expected things but didn't set an example and follow rules
Well Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Houston, TX – July 10, 2015
Pros: per deim & bonuses
Cons: working in the weather
A person willing to work hard and learn can go many places with this company. I learned more than I could ever imagine about the oilfield here. Management always answered questions and helped. The hardest part of the job was the time away from home.
equipment operator (Current Employee), Williston, ND – June 29, 2015
Pros: typical oilfield benefits
Think Cudd is all but done in the Bakken. To many upper management mistakes. Employees never get raises, and now they are starving them out with no perdiem, no job bonuses and only 40hr work weeks. Guys are leaving quick hardly enough men to do a job for frac or coil now. And takes forever to go through hiring process. 3 months if your lucky.
EO (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – May 7, 2015
Pros: Co-workers are like family.
Cons: Management is not professional
If you are not part of the Good ole boy system already instituted their, your out of luck. You will be worked thin with the promise of days off only to be told last minute that you can not go home. They believe that they OWN you!
Operator 4 (Current Employee), ND, WY, CO – April 9, 2015
feast or famine type of job... management typically makes terrable decisions but the crews are great to work with. Generally speaking you travel quite a bit to work so the family/wok ratio is a little off.
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Odessa, TX – April 7, 2015
After realizing the outside work was not for me. I am now in dispatch for a Frac company. I am very knowledgeable about frac non the less. Here we are required to set up frac jobs as far as equipment and operators who will be on the well site. Any time a piece of equipment needs to be replaced we have to get the process going. Just recently I was told by my boss that he will be leaving soon and he would like no one other than me to take his place, because I am the most qualified of the 4 dispatchers, only having been working here since October 2014, but I too am looking for a different opportunity of work at this time.
Very Poor upper management. It is what can CUDD do for them
District Manager (Former Employee), Kilgore, TX – April 2, 2015
Pros: Awesome company in the 90's
Cons: Headed down a bad path
In the 90's Cudd was a good work place that took care of there employees and help and wanted all to be promoted, since mid 2000's it is more about what can I get out of CUDD be it illegal or what ever to better myself.
Technician/Truck Mechanic (Current Employee), Canton, PA – March 28, 2015
Working for CUDD has been a great experience for me. I have traveled around a bit and met many new people. The Management and superiors are great people and have always answered my questions and concerns. I have enjoyed working for them these past 4 years. Typically I Work on the BOPs and occasionally I help other guys with their work. I sometimes have to run after parts for equipment, which I use company trucks for. I also fill out paperwork related to my job.
Best company I have ever had the opportunity to work for
