Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – New Iberia, LA – June 29, 2016
I seen first hand if your not part of the click then your just a NUMBER!!! They put procedures in place to be followed only when it benefits the managers!!! Asked several times for things to be changed, so I make the change to accommodate what equipment is needed and get canned for it. And the sad part is that I was not the only one doing it and management knew about it!!!
Good hard working Employees
MANAGEMENT and Employees not giving the recognition they deserve
-- (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 11, 2016
For the most part this is a pretty great company to work for. They really do care about their employees (at least it seems as much) and they promote the family atmosphere. However, when it actually comes time to paying a competitive wage, they'd rather beat you out of it.

For what there looking for the pay scale is too low you might get $20hr to start but you won't be getting any raises .
The corporate office should really take a better look of how this company is run all the management in this facility are all school buddy's or close friends this management personal lack the ability to run any company . They always layoff all the wrong people which that is definitely in part of the buddy system they have it was like working with immature children!! this place is poorly managed and will likely get closed down when corporate gets tired of losing more money on a facility that can't figure out how too run efficiently
guys running machines were fun to work with
This facility is poorly managed and they lie too you from the start

Management only cares about them selves. You will get laid off at some point. Very poor communication. If thing are good they love you to death. When they are slow you get treated as if you are a bourdon to them . Lots of dead weight.
Back stabbing people. No raise in 2 years. HR is joke.
I enjoyed working for this company. Many of my coworkers became good friends. I felt like I contributed to the success of the company and that management cared about the employees. They provide a good work/life balance, and are willing to develop their employees to help them succeed.

I would have retired from their if it wasn't for the lay off. The benefits were awesome. I enjoyed what I did for a living. Working on cranes was like a dream come true. All I thought about was cranes.
Pay, benefits and doing something that I loved to do.

Sr. Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Houma, la – July 8, 2015
I learned that no one customer wants anything the same. Every crane i designed was completely different electrically. The employees are some of the best i have ever worked with. The hardest part of the job was trying to meet the c=impossible schedules. Meeting the people that i got to work with and learning new and exciting things.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – January 25, 2015
The work is easy and the heat wasn't to bad. The problem with the company is you are not nobody unless you are up top or family. Its like the saying goes its not who you know its who you blow. Management sucks and so does HR.
Vast resources, structured environment, many different divisions for business expansion. Opportunity to grow or move between companies within Oil States International. The hardest part of the job was response times to customers needs was hindered by management channels.
opportunity to move to other divisions
response times to equipment deliveries and quotations.
