Project Controller (Former Employee) – California – February 2, 2017
Working in this industry is very unstable, it does have its benefits but, they are short lived. This industry is very politically motivated with a Ownership structure that is very disconnected from its employees.

Foreman (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – December 21, 2015
I gave this company 4-5 years of my life. Ive had family members work there, and really appreciate all they gave me. I was able to go from a 18 year old fresh out of highschool to a man with a thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of the oil production industry. Was the best education Ive ever recieved. I wish i could have stayed with them forever but OIL IS NEVER A STEADY JOB and so i had to get layed off.
Crane Operator (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 9, 2015
It seemed to me that all the upper management that received bonus did not care how the equipment was keep. They wanted the equipment to run. I the AC went out they would not fix it they just wanted as big a bonus as they could and did not care about the worker.
Designer/Sales (Former Employee) – Brighton, MI – October 18, 2014
I was a Kitchen and Bath designer. I learned the elements of designing, codes and spacing. My Co-workers were pleasant to work with. Leaving my contractors that I built working relationships with was hard but I maintained some personal connections with some. I enjoy designing new spaces for families to enjoy for years to come.

Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, MI – June 4, 2014
A typical day at KSI was opening and preparing all aspects of the shift in a busy restaurant. Our management was well trained and efficient. Coworkers were mostly young people, so we tried to keep the environment light and enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was if people did not show up for their shift. I was very fortunate that with very few exception people showed up for my shift. I always remember one girl said: I wouldn't dream of skipping your shift", that where I learned that it pays to treat all with honor and respect, it comes back to you.
General Foreman/Field Superintendent (Former Employee) – Tioga, ND – February 20, 2014
Job was alright for a fly by wire operation. No organization and people are always passing the buck so if something messes up they did not do anything wrong but if it is good then it was their idea. If you know anything about quality this is not the right place for you.
