Good place to work when oil is booming.
Truck driver (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJanuary 17, 2018
Good job when oil is booming and competitive pay. When the market crashed wages we lowered and hours were cut but before that it was an ideal place to work. Supervisors and managers are really good guys and work at keeping employees happy

Quantity over Quality
IT (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 14, 2018
Very understaffed and very fast paced environment. Employees wear many hats and there is a lack of quality when there is so much quantity to work on. Employees are good people to work with but there is just a lot to do.

I enjoyed working here. But because of oil prices with the ups and downs we unfortunately stacked out our rig in North Dakota which left a lot of co workers and myself to go elsewhere for employment.

Good money
Derrick Hand (Former Employee) –  Kilgore, TXDecember 29, 2017

Pros
Great pay
Cons
poor job culture
