Data Van Operator (Former Employee) – Williston, ND – September 4, 2015
I used to work an average of 110 hrs a week when we were fracking and made crazy bank.The management at the top was more detrimental to the work than anything else. They were completely short sighted and out of touch with the reality on the ground and they had many chances to correct problems and did nothing.
Front Line Leader/Field Safety (Former Employee) – Canton, PA – August 6, 2015
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.

terrible management, lack of communication between management, lack of safety
Well Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 10, 2015
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.
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.
