no hours unless you bug dispatch that before when it was Western they actually cared about you now that its pilot they could give $0.02 what happens to you hours could be 71 weekend 10 the next worst company I've ever worked for although the camaraderie with other employees on job sites is amazing
Driver (Former Employee) – Idaho – December 26, 2016
Worked 13 years for PTL as a driver. When i started this was a family owned company. Changed hands in 2007 again in 2009 and again in 2012. Pilots take over in 2012 was by far the worst. Inept mangement out of SLC and hiring managers outside of the fuel industry with no experience was a joke. Overall this company is about one thing. How they can take advantage of you and get away with it !
Accounting (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 12, 2016
I worked at Pilot Thomas Logistics since it was Simons Petroleum. This was a great place back in the day, now it is a shell of what it was. The management is the worst, the good ones left as soon as they could and now it is ran by ones who only care about themselves. Employees are an after thought and quoted "A dime a dozen." If you are looking in this industry, look at another company. There are several that appreciate the workers that keep the lights on.
Free coffee and water
Bad management, excessive mandatory overtime, low pay
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) – Morgantown – December 8, 2016
Was hired with the promise of ample hours which was the case to begin with then a few months after I was hired the hours started going away slowly at first but by the time everything was over and I was laid off I was being called off more often than I was working and rarely had notice sometimes after I arrived at the office to go to work.
THERAPIST (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – October 22, 2016
As a dispatcher for the oil field we never had a break always a busy day. Answering calls, emails, schedules for employee and much more. I've learned discipline and just grow thick skin and keep work professional at all time.
Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 7, 2016
Basically they have changed everything that I was offered in my interview. Its not better for sure.Driver moral is low. They try to be nice to the drivers but we know that we are viewed as low lifes behind closed doors. Its is starting to get frustrating to hear customers complain about the service. I worry about where this company will be in a year.
Frac Fueling (Former Employee) – Fort Lupton, CO – September 19, 2016
When I worked for pilot, it was ok. Management was slow in the head but it was still ok. Thomas came in like storm troopers and the atmosphere was like working for the Gestapo. Instead of having one Hitler, we had 10. Dispatch and everyone with a CDL was like Hitler. They only let snitches work so they would report back to the office like something was really happening on site but nothing was.
Human Resources (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – September 7, 2016
As a new employee, it has been great working for Pilot Thomas Logistics! Everyone at the corporate office in Fort Worth, TX has been very nice and work together as a team. The interview and onboarding process was very easy and so far I've had adequate training to get me started in my new position. I really like the laid back culture and atmosphere...they even have a ping pong table!
Good Place to work - Good diversity in the business
Recruiting Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 7, 2016
This is a great place to work and I have learned a lot in the past year and a half. There have been some tough times due to the nature of the oil and gas industry but that affects everyone across the board. This company has been able to move forward due to the diversity of business outside of the oil and gas industry and has been successful in those areas. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for driver positions or office jobs.
Depsite the cold weather conditions in North Dakota it was a great compnay to work for. I truly enjoyed working with management on several different levels. I would happily work for Pilot Thomas once again.
Director (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – September 2, 2016
The past 18 months have been really tough in the O&G industry and there have been LOTS of changes at PTL -- some good some not so good. Overall, I think it's a solid company with a good leadership team and we're headed in the right direction. I like that we have business outside of the energy market as I think that makes us more diverse and financially stable.
Financially stable and continually evolving to meet the needs of employees and customers.
The industry is a tough place to work for everyone right now.
Driver/AMP Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 1, 2016
I worked for this company for nearly 4 years, first as a transport driver for Thomas Petroleum, and later as a Field Service Representative for Pilot Thomas Logistics. I enjoyed both jobs and learned quite a lot from each. After the merger with Pilot, the company became a different place. Gone was the driven commitment to quality customer service and the resources to provide it. The focus was entirely on cost cutting and profit. The employee went from being an asset to an expendable commodity. The management is now centralized instead of local and the "one size fits all" mentality is an abysmal failure. I would not recommend working or doing business with Pilot Thomas Logistics.
Job was good. Management was not on top of their game. Lack of communication resulting in layoffs. Management didn't communicate with workers on a annual base. Take to long to correct mistakes that are made on their end
