I had an internship summer of 2015 with H&P as a Floor hand and it was the best learning experience. They care about the safety of their employees and provide all the training needed to ensure a safe environment. Staff was amazing and kind and very patient and will answer all questions.

Used to be great
Rig Manager (Former Employee) –  Seguin, TXMarch 22, 2016
This used to be a great drilling company to work for. they cared about employees, not the bottom line. Now it's the other way around, still better than most but not as good as it used to be.

High paced world of the Oilfield Industry. H&P Rocks!!
CRT Tech (Former Employee) –  All over Colorado, and WyomingFebruary 9, 2016
As big as H&P is, its a close knit, almost family environment. They care about the safety, and the welfare of their employees. They provide for almost everything you need to do your job, and to do it as safe as possible. The upper management actually knows what its like to be down in the belly of the beast. They know, because most of them started out at the bottom, and were promoted from within.
H&P was one of my best job experiences, ever!
Pros
They provide your FRC's, pay for your phone, your laundry, provided me a truck and all the tools I would need to perform my job.
Cons
A lot of time away from home.

productive and great place to work
Derrick Hand, Floor hand (Former Employee) –  Alice,txOctober 19, 2015
Working 12 hour shifts a day and putting in hours of team work. Learning new things everyday. Meeting great people and having great leaders to show you how and the best way to get work done. Hardest part of the job is being away from your family and missing many important things, holidays, and birthdays. The great pay and benefits is definitely worth all the hard work you put in.
Pros
great pay and benefits
Cons
being away from family, working in all weather types
