I had a wonderful time working for this company for 14 years it was a very family company
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Lafayette Louisiana – August 28, 2017
But I can say that I had a good time you had good days and bad days but we had a very good times everyone got along. Frank's International was a family company everyone was treated as a brother or sister
Frank's is an interesting place to work. Then again the oil field in general is, I suppose. The pay was good when there was work. Work is dictated by national oil prices and fluctuates often. Management at my particular office was poor and cut every corner possible to make the most profit; sometimes at the expense of safety.
Office Manager's Administrator (Former Employee) – Rock Springs, WY 82901 – June 13, 2017
Management downsized our location. Otherwise we had a low turn-around rate and dedicated employee staff. Administrative staff and payroll administrators were professional and respondent to the organizational reporting processes. Location management was easy to communicate with and understand job completion requirements. We prided ourselves with a high rate of productivity and safe environment.
Electrical Engineer III (Contract Project Manager) (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – May 2, 2017
My only regret is that I would have joined the team sooner. That way I could have more time with the company. I would have felt more comfortable during that lay offs so that I could have "sweat it out."
Production Drafter (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – January 17, 2017
This job was by far the best job I have had , very good work environment . Frank's International was a very good place for starting my career in the drafting and design field, very good at teaching you new people to help exceed goals.
Opening the shop, answering phones, taking job alerts for crews, entering invoices communication between other companies per e-mail and phone, time sheet corrections, dealing with vendors, ordering supplies needed for the shop and office. Created requisitions for purchase orders. Fax paperwork. Communicate with all employees daily on what is needed that day. I learned communication is very important in any job. The hardest part is when phones go down and there is no way to communicate. Most enjoyable part of my job was going to work daily and working with the people I worked with I loved the company and the people I worked with.
Being able to make my own schedule. They were very understanding.
There is nothing bad i can say about working there.
Machinist level III (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – November 10, 2016
I started at this company as a shop hand. In 3 months I was promoted to a manual mill machinist. I cut stabilizers on the mill. When we didn't have work on the mill, i prepped parts on the lathe. The job was a good job to learn from. The supervisors were really hard to work with. The hours where very long. We work 10 hours a day for 7 days. The next we worked 10 hours a day for 5 days.

Managment (Current Employee) – Lafayette, LA – September 21, 2016
This company is over 78 years old but over the last few years is going though major changes. The company was privately owned by a great family for 75+ years before going public in 2013.The transition from private to public has impacted the company and its employees greatly. With the down turn in the market, the moral is very low. Upper Management are all individuals from other companies who do not understand the Frank's way or the values that made Frank's such a strong and successful company.
A global leader and provider of casing core services with respect to well construction and well integrity.
Average employee tenure was 20 years under the private ownership and leadership of Mr. Keith Mosing a 3rd generation family company.
Company decided to go public and the transition from private to public completely changed the rules of engagement under a new CEO & CFO. The wall street process eroded the previous employee tenured opportunity and family atmosphere which resulted in changing the company's overall culture.
