Tubular Cost Analyst (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, LAOctober 19, 2016
Frank's International is a great company to work for. Franks before the downturn in the economy was very busy. There was not a day that went by, that I didn't learn something. Frank's gave you the opportunity to learn all you could, not only with your particular job, but with other departments. My co workers were always friendly and willing to help others complete their jobs successfully.
Pros
The benefits
Cons
short breaks and no over time

I was very fortunate to watch Franks transition over the years. It went from a "mom and pop" operation to a public company. Working for Franks International, I was able to be exposed to different aspects within a company. Starting in the shop managing shipping and receiving to assisting their legal dept. Franks International has amazing mentors.
Pros
Great mentors, ability to learn different aspects of the business
Cons
Oil industry is not predictable

Payroll Clerk (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 2, 2016
The company is an enjoyable place to work at. It is a high fast paced environment. Keeps you on your toes. Co Workers are always pleasant. The hardest part of the job is making sure at the end of the day all your work is done. Most enjoyable part of the day is knowing you have completed everything and everyone is satisfied.

Mechanic/Torque turn technician (Current Employee) –  Cheyenne, WYNovember 16, 2015
Employees are always on call having to be ready in a moments notice. I learned the different types of casing and thread types as well as torque values for them. Managers were always willing to train me on different tasks and flexible with time out. Co-workers are great as long as you are doing your fair share. The hardest part of the job is working long hours and driving to different locations with little or no sleep. The people I work with make the job fun and educational.
