Atypical work day in the oilfield is hard work yet enjoyable and exciting. I further gained leadership experience since being employed here. the hardest part of the job is working in the elements and working away from home.

Drilling rigs
Floorhand (Current Employee), Pearsall, TXSeptember 15, 2014
A typical day at work would be doing everything your supervisors expect you to do. I have been on drilling rigs for about 8 years so I know a few things. Our management is ok. The hardest part of the job would be working in the winter time. The best part of my current job is I work 14 days and get 14 days off.

Good pay, but hard to be away the family for 7 days at a time. Nice to have 7 days off at a time. Nomac will keep you working. I do have to work in rain, sleet, snow, etc.

Pros: had a great crew to work with
Working with others in the workforce I have learned patience, comardery, knowledge of the job i am doing, I love work to and am not afraid of hard work. I can be depended on to show up on time and complete every task.

I enjoyed working for Nomac and it was needed experience that I had not really acquired in the past. I liked the people on my crew.

Lead Floor Hand (Former Employee), Mount Morris, PANovember 8, 2013
Pros: benefits from med, dent plans and everything else you could think of.
Cons: health care and safety on the job classes
I was always taken care of working for NOMAC under the umbrella of Chesapeake Energy. Very good people and completely believe in what they preach. They're safety program is one of the best in the nation along with their entry level training courses.

hard work, though good work
Chain Hand (Former Employee), Mount Morris, PASeptember 1, 2013
a typical day at work consists of a lot of hard labor, very fast paced and nonstop. at the end of a 12-14 hour day i will be wore out but ready to get after it again the next day. i normally get along really well with all my coworkers, we are all there to get the job done safely and efficiently. the hardest part of my job is being able to push myself beyond my limits to make the job of my coworkers easier and the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work with good people who want nothing more than to be able to work with me and go home with all appendages and digits that we came to work with.

Floorhand (Current Employee), Clinton, OKJuly 14, 2013
Pros: lots of time off
Cons: sometimes management could relax, they add stress for no reason
Some of the best people and worst people you could imagine work for this company and it kind of makes it even out. If you have never worked on a drilling rig before Nomac will teach you what you need to know. You work 7 and 7 or 14 and 14, 12 hours a day.
