Great for newbies to the industry.
Doc Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 10, 2017
A typical day working at Dril-Quip was like high school. I worked in a department with predominantly female workers. Some were childish, easily intimidated and highly competitive. In the time I worked there I saw about 35-40 people come and go. It was worst place I've every worked. The atmosphere was boring and slow. Management was horrible and lacked knowledge to lead and manage resources. The supervisor lacked leadership skills and knowledge to assist employees and rarely held those who did not perform well accountable.

Majority of the workers had poor work ethics, couldn't get to work on time or had tons of excuses for why they could not do their jobs. As result, the hard workers had to pick up the slack.

Most of the tasks are so simple, a child could do them, but they made things so difficult. Team work was sometime impossible. There was very little training besides weekly safety training. No standard operating procedures to follow, majority of training was hearsay.

If you have good work ethics or standards, don't work here. If you do, get your knowledge, experience and leave. Quickly!!
Pros
HealthCare, 401k
Cons
Short Lunch, Horrible Lighting, Poor Management, Terrible Pay

Good place if you have a good manager.
Sales Administration Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 6, 2017
Can be a good place to work if you have a good manager. Offers good benefits. Job security isn't the best in oil and gas right now, but it's a cyclical industry.

Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 15, 2017
A lot of work offshore and you lead yourself. I've learned a lot of drilling tools and how to run subsea wellheads. Always offshore never in office. Being away from home is the hardest part. No one is hassling you on a daily basis as long as you do your job you have nothing to worry about.
Pros
Independant work enviroment
Cons
Not alot of days off

Productive & peaceful place to work
QC LAB PREP TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 28, 2017
I've been with the company going on 5 years, I have learned a lot, and Dril-Quip is a great place to work. There have been so many layoffs recently & a pay reduction for the employees remaining, so this makes you put life into perspective. But I am still grateful & thankful to be here.
Pros
Early mornings & early afternoons (5:30 am -4pm shift)
Cons
Short breaks

Good place to work but laying off alot
Document Review Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 26, 2017
I worked there for years and they put a raise freeze and have been laying off people a lot. They also have cut employees 10% off their pay. They are not a good company to work for at this time, there is no job security.

Great Company
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX 77041March 1, 2017
Great company to get your career going in the oil and gas industry. I was giving the opportunity to train on a cnc machine. Management was average and favoritism was obvious.

Good place to learn and be trained in the oil field
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 3, 2017
Dril-Quip is a good place to work and learn information on oil field products. You have oppurtunities to transfer to different departments within the company which also helps expand your knowledge.

A good place to get your foot in the door of the oil industry
Inside Sales Assistant Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 25, 2017
Dril-Quip is a global company that is more product driven then it is employee driven. They offer 401k, and mediocre health care package. The management in most departments is good, however there are some that leaves one wondering what in the world was HR thinking. If you happen to be of the male gender the sky is the limit at Dril-Quip. However the same can not be said for women, I hope you enjoy clerical.

Every department had their own agenda.
Production Expeditor (Former Employee) –  Houston, Texas 77040January 6, 2012
Cooperation from personnel, within departments connected to the Supply Chain, proved to be difficult at best. Passage of material to be received and passed on to Q.A. a hassle. As an Expeditor, any promise of completion of a task on a work order, was superseded by Management. Each month orders were scheduled by master scheduler. There was a plan indeed. Only to dissolve in a week or two. All it would take was a phone call from a well known customer off shore, to the V.P. of the company. All machines would be dedicated to the project and worked on two ten hour shifts. Deep water drilling and on shore wells are demanding and will suffer into the Millions of dollars per day. If they do not receive their equipment. Time is always of the essence. It's the nature of the beast.
Pros
nice clean lunch areas
Cons
safety osha rules ignored, by ill tempered supervisors.

Staff Accountant (AR, Collections, Cashflow Mgmt) (Former Employee) –  Houston Corporate OfficesOctober 21, 2011
Excellent company on the cutting edge of technology in the Oil & Gas Industry who values their employees with exceptional compensation and benefits and promotes from within. I was told when I left, (after three (3) going away parties!) that I could always come back but there would be no more going away parties for me! LOL It really is a great company with many good people!
Pros
annual company picnic, annual chritsmas party, involvement in community, softball league, volleyball league
