Has potential..But Management is the problem
Wireline Operator (Former Employee), North DakotaOctober 6, 2014
Pros: nice equipment, lots of hours
Cons: incompetent management no real hr or safety support
Worked with the High Plains Wireline...Would've been a awesome job but....But good ol'boy management that lacked true leadership was incompetent at best backed up with cronyism, nepotism and lack of training for anyone other than a one of their kids or buddies..made it a nightmare. .Don't get me wrong if you get in a click you're gonna do fine..maybe – more... until someone in management wants to get a family member or a buddy a job.... – less

For Some People
Water Transfer Tech (Former Employee), Killdeer, NDSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: compensation, hours
Cons: sleep, housing
Where do I start?

Job:

It's a heavy manual labor position. Unfortunately, MBI Recruiter failed to state this. Was hired on as a CDL driver, but I have only driven one time. The rest is heavy labor. Work hours are typically 15 hour days, which is fine. However, they house you in Dickinson, which is a hour drive from the yard. By the time a day is finished, – more... with travel time, you only get about three hours of sleep. How can anyone operate a Commercial Vehicle safely with three hours of sleep? Three hours of sleep for three weeks straight does not equate to a safe working environment.

Training:

There is no training. I was sent into the field and given little to no direction. The foreman would not say a word to me. I finally asked him if there is something I should be doing? He advised me to just observe. There is no direction whatsoever. There was no explanation into how and why things work. If you are rigging up or down, you'll just be doing hard labor, which does not require any training. It's self explanatory.

Management/Supervisors/Leads:

In the Water Transfer Division there are several Supervisors/Leads (Foreman). Most of them grew up together in Minnesota, and they are extremely cliquish. They openly talk down about the new guys (Green Hats), instead of properly training them. There are many days where returning to the yard at the end of shift that some of them smell of alcohol.

Coworker (Green Hats):

Most are helpful and will explain how to do things since trainers/foreman won't. However, there is quite a few bad apples who take on the trainers/foreman's point-of-views. The don't want anything to do with you because you are a brand new green hat. These bad apples are typically the green hats that have been in the department for three months. – less

SAFE Team Member (Former Employee), Ross NDSeptember 9, 2014
Cons: everything
Long hours,horrible management, little or no trainning before your sent out in the field. Terrible leadership and management.

I would find another place to work, no time for a life working 100 hrs a week, little sleep.

Housing assistance was okay, just not quiet enough to cover cost of living or ease of access to businesses.
Human Resources Liaison (Current Employee), Ross, NDJuly 14, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: housing
Housing was assisted but no quiet enough for the cost of living in Ross, ND. Ease of access to grocery shopping, renting movies, getting internet and television very difficult with the rural location.

Production Water Driver Class A (Former Employee), belfield, ndApril 7, 2014
shasta county is like any other government agency, they are more worried about what you might do to get them in trouble than actually taking care of and keeping great employees.

Lacks growth in some areas
DISPATCH (Former Employee), Charlotte, TXDecember 26, 2013
Pros: good benifits
Cons: plays favorites towards family and friends in the company
This is a great company to work for in the N.D. Area but as far as other regions it is by far one of the most mid-managed companies in the oil field.
