my time at Nabors drilling was a fast-paced three years where the company commissioned over 150 new-build drilling rigs. Everyone in the company from engineering to operations played an integral part in making task succeed.

The pay and scheduling is perfect for the working familes needs. The health benefits are well suited. I should never have left. The only negative is Oil and Gas based industry is a poltically charged job security.
Plenty of overtime, Great schudeling
Co-Workers can be cut throat and oil and gas based business lacks security due politics

Pay Checks were never the same. Management never listened and always had an excuse. I would never work for this company again. They always took short cuts leading to my friend being stuck in an auger for 7 hrs.
Crane Operator (Former Employee) – New Iberia, LA – March 23, 2017
typical work day starts with JSA and letting roustabouts know what the daily activities are. With this company i learned what the different tools are and how they function. The management was good at keeping the rig supplied with quality people to get the job safe and effectively. The workplace was a safety culture place. The hardest thing about this job was being away from home as with ant job. The most enjoyable part of the job was operating the crane and doing the work safely.
Working for Nabors was one of the best decisions I've made. The team was awesome.Yes, you do work hard. But the bond you form makes it totally worth it. If there was a disagreement it was quickly resolved.

Nabors is a field operations oriented company. When based out of a regional office you are on call 24/7/365. Safety is the number one goal set by the company as a whole and developing a safety culture is part of the package. Management is alright but can seem to be entrenched. The hardest part of the job is realizing that unless you are related to someone higher up there is no advancement. All upper management jobs are filled with outside personnel to promote 'innovation'.
