Great Place To Work
Landman (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 5, 2017
Oasis is a good place to work. The workload is high but manageable if you put your head down and do the work. The pay is decent but the cost for benefits is higher than other companies with similar size and structure.

Overall good place to work and I would recommend to anyone looking for work within the industry
Pros
People, Office Culture, Flexibility, 9/80 work schedule
Cons
Work load

Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 4, 2017
I worked at Oasis for 2 years, Oasis is a small company with a family atmosphere. Unfortunately they were hit by the economic downturn, but they sacrificed and tried to stave off layoffs for as long as they could. I would work there again if offered a position,
Pros
Good vacation and benefits
Cons
Could use more training

Gas Station Attendant (Former Employee) –  Howell, MINovember 18, 2016

Pros
Handling money
Cons
irate customers

Fracturing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDNovember 17, 2016
Great company overall, take care of their employes relative to other oil and gas companies.

Genuine care from the top end, that tends to fizzle toward the bottom.
Cons
A lot gets lost in middle-management

Typical tricle down blame game
Lease Operator (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDOctober 25, 2016
If issues goes down, it goes down to the lowest employee on the chain. Supervisors throw there own hands under the bus to save themselves. Cover yourself and don't think for a instance that the guys working with you, care who you are.

Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDJuly 8, 2016
Good co-workers. Not too bad to work for. Wish Management would recognize the hard workers and advance them instead of people that they know well outside of work. Not looking at the best people to be in supervisory and management positions.

Great company just poorly managed division. Also looking forward to being home more often. Time wasted in areas that could have been great team building tools. Again just poorly managed division.
Pros
Pay and benifits
Cons
2 weeks straight 1 week off. Plus no travel pay or per dium if in the shop. Adds up over time.

Oasis Petroleum Culture
Senior Drilling Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 13, 2016
With less than 2,00 people, Oasis is a relatively small O&G company. Over three quarters of the employees live and work in Williston, N.D., with a handful in the corporate office in Houston. As a whole, the company is young, from both an employee standpoint, as well as a company culture. The majority of the employees in the corporate office are still new to the workforce, either straight from college,or with only a couple of years experience in the oil and gas industry. It is the same with middle management. The culture was not what I was accustomed to in a professional atmosphere.

Compensation is fair. Pay is above average and health benefits comparable.While bonuses seemed competitive against other companies, the employee stock program left me baffled.

It is a decent company for those starting out in the industry. The only downside is that if they were to move to older and more established O&G companies, they would realize everything they learned would have to be scrapped and there would be a huge learning curve to overcome.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Culture, Employee Stock Program

Great people to work with and a fun and challenging environment.
Hydraulic Fracturing Engineer I (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDNovember 29, 2015
Oasis is pretty laid back as far as service companies go. It Has been fun learning the ways of the oil field. The days are long and North Dakota is pretty harsh in the winter. The hardest part of the job is being away form home two weeks at a time but that week off is great. The best part of the job is getting to work with a diverse group of people and hearing about all the experiences they have had in the oil field. The management can be a little coarse but that is to be expected in this line of work.
A typical day of work consists of:
-Waking up at 3 AM
-Heading to yard call
-Driving to location
-Having a JSA on location
-High pressure Pumping on oil wells for 12 hours
-Swapping out with the next crew
-Driving back to the man camp
-In bed around 7 PM
-Do it again for 13 days straight.

Up & Down Management Skills - Lack of HR skills
yard worker (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDNovember 22, 2015
A good company to work for. Management/Supervisors need to learn how to deal with employee/management issues. They do to much micro management. Definitely a lack in leadership and how to manage effectively skills. If you get lucky and work under a good supervisor who has these skills, Oasis is a good company to work for.
Pros
Good Environment
Cons
Too much micro management

Sr. Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 17, 2015
Heavy drilling and completion activity during 2014. Fast-paced and dynamic work environment. Company offers good compensation package. Poor middle management due to recent re-structure.
Pros
Youthful atmosphere
Cons
Uneven workloads due to middle management re-structure

meh
hand (Former Employee) –  WILLISTONJune 6, 2015
This review is strictly for OWS.

Unorganized. Horribly unorganized.
There are three frac coordinators and two are worthless.
Most of the frac management acts too good to talk to a regular guy.
A majority of the current field supervisors are only supervisors because of the Buddy system.
There is a shortage of equipment.
Lots of yard time.
There is no standard among the crews at all.
Operators treat equipment like sh....
There is ZERO accountability and no consequences.
If you like to drink frequently or have a southern accent you'll move up fast no matter how dumb you are.
75% of the people are just showing up to collect a check.
If you aren't Caucasian there is nothing you can do to get fired.
Short staffed on mechanics. Nothing gets fixed, ever.
You never see supervisors on yard days.
There is absolutely no training except for SAFE O
SAFE O is a joke.
The pay period is wacky.
DTA on your crew.
No one takes responsibility for anything...
The office people are worthless.
Pros
decent pay and benefits
Cons
you cant move up unless you're the cliq.

Fast paced production with team oriented atmosphere
Operator, Oilfield Services (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDJune 1, 2015
A typical day would include assembling and/or disassembling iron pipe, connecting hoses and monitoring flow and pressure. I learned how to become an efficient equipment operator for the fracturing process of oil wells and how to control well pressure through the use of various types of equipment. This job was team oriented and had a great sense of comradery. The hardest part of the job was working under extreme and severe weather conditions. The extreme cold would effect equipment not working properly. The most enjoyable part of the job was finishing the work on a well ahead of or on schedule.

compensation is good, but management works on a buddy system instead of leadership ability so you don't move up if you aren't drinking buddies.
Pros
great pay, benefits
Cons
terrible management, no advancement unless you are in the click
