Crane operator/ mechanic (Former Employee), Montgomery, PA – May 23, 2013
I worked in the maintenance shop of the Muncy PA location. I learned that if you arent friend with people who get moved in from other locations on start up. Just quit. After being threatened and defending myself, I found myself having to see a counselor and the guy who threw a hammer at me being promoted. Must be nice to live with the boss.

A typical day for me went like this. I would get to the office around 06:30 and would take calls and build jobs and coordinate all of the crews and support personnel to make sure everything was where is needed to be when it was suppose to be there. It was intense and never ending. i enjoyed the rush of it and the sense of accomplishment it gave me. – more... to succeed and make the impossible come to life, with no safety issues and following Halliburtons best practices. This job was rewarding and very hard to. the phones never stopped and you worked a 24/7 schedule. As we all know the oil field never sleeps!

This was and is to this day the hardest decision of my life to leave my post at Halliburton. – less
