Disposal Well Operator (Former Employee) – Diamond, OH – October 10, 2016
This company ran itself into the ground just to get rid of a union that the drivers voted in. The well operators did nothing wrong and we still payed the price and lost a good paying job. Do Not Work For Them. The pay was good but they treated us terribly.
Discipline is non existant among the drivers and their poor performance will eventually destroy the company.
Dispatcher/Driver (Current Employee) – Masontown WV – April 23, 2015
I do not have anything pleasant to say about working here, there is poor management, and the lack of leadership and discipline will eventually be the companies undoing. Stress for those who care about their work is extreme.
lowest pay scale in the area, total lack of discipline among employees.
Disposal Well Operator (Former Employee) – Diamond, OH – February 10, 2014
Great teamwork concept, supervision very supportive at well sites backed employees with policy and procedures. The hardest part of the job was the slowdown of truck traffic along with being sent home for lack of work.
Safety bonus each quarter.
Compensation is not up to industry standards, expensive healthcare.
Great opportunity for earnings IF you can keep a truck running
CDL A Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Watford City, ND – November 15, 2014
Hauling fluids in the oil patch. Bad roads. No...horrible roads If it isn't cold and windy, it's hot and dusty, with 2 days of perfect weather per year. Great training and education from very knowledgeable and experienced co-workers. Dispatch is very good about keeping you busy. Potential for earnings is great if you are willing to stick it out long enough to be assigned your own truck. 3-6 months depending on availability.The equipment is among the best in the industry when it is operational. Therein lies the biggest problem with working here. The shop foreman is unqualified to run a maintenance department. The repairs are only quick fixes to get the trucks on the road as quickly as possible. This has led to good mechanics either being shown the door for not being "team players" or finding it themselves for refusing to compromise their standards. There really is no "system" in place. Pre trip inspections are ignored and filed. You simply have to try to find a mechanic to help you out. There is a top notch facility, it's just sad that nobody seems to know what to do with it. Management shows absolutely zero interest in employee opinion. Generally speaking, apathy is high and morale is low.
nice housing at decent price when you can get in, earning potential higher than peer companies, standard insurance.
401K matching is in company stock, maybe that's a pro if it ever climbs out of the toilet, or the company doesn't go bankrup, . no leadership, no communication from management.
Driver (Current Employee) – Towanda, PA – March 12, 2015
Nuverra will be out of business by the end of 2015. Their stock has lost 95% of its value in the last year and will drop further after 4th quarter results are released. They are burdened by an enormous amount of debt that they will not be able to overcome and will soon lead them into bankruptcy. When you call the 'anonymous' HR line to report a problem, you are always sold out, as the managers are told who called. Then the caller is retaliated against and often fired. If you are looking for a short term position working for a company that treats their employees like used kleenex's, this is the place for you.
Provided with $2000 worth of equipment when you start.
Well management as ok. All the co-workers seem to be friendly enough. The pay wasn't great. I was told I would get 16 an hour but you really get paid per load and if your a new driver and don't know where all the well pads are it makes it a little tough at first.
Dispatch/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Tioga, ND – July 18, 2015
nuverra was a terrible place to work. management is untrained and unable to handle various situations. there is no training program, extremely high stress level, no managerial support, and low pay for the hours and expectations.
Regional HSE Manager (Former Employee) – Ardmore, OK – March 30, 2015
Senior operational management at corporate level was severely disengaged and mismanaged the basics of the company. I learned a good bit about operations in the oil & gas industry and spent a great amount of time dealing with transportation and environmental safety. The HSE standpoint was exceptionally managed and the programs we developed were well beyond the standard.
Accounting (Former Employee) – Spring Texas – June 28, 2014
Central location in spring area but disorganized. Pay rate not that great. Only two weeks pto total. Health insurance pricey. Lots of changes in software database. So lots of issues & changes. If it's close to your home it's not bad but not worth the drive. No room for growth & low pay scale.
