Not Good...No Job Security...No Communication in the Office!!
CDL Tank Wagon Driver - Fueler (Former Employee) – Tioga, ND – March 24, 2014
In training everything sounded Great....I thought i was going to work for this company for years to come, but after Training and you get on the job...everthing goes out the window! I Took my 1 week off that was coming to me (which they complain about) and it was during this last Christmas! I had a return flight that was cancelled! i called a let them know!! The next schedulled flight cancelled also due to snowy weather...I let them know agian and got a text telling me that i was terminated, because I abandoned my job...when clearly I was trying to get back to North Dakota from New Mexico. I still had to go back to get my things and my car! I tried to get my job back and was told by HR that i would get it back..i emailed,text,called...did everthing i could do, but not one person called me back. Go make your quick money and get out!! Do not let me get started on the man camp and your sleeping situation..Child size bunkbeds...2 men to a room...8 men in each trailer...sharing the same fridge!! Not Good!!
You can make some good money.
There is no communication in the office...NO Job Security!!!
Regional Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – May 30, 2017
PLS was a great company, the merge with Thomas changed a lot of aspects that the employees saw as negative which caused turnover. The price per barrel in oil & gas forced the company to make negative changes.
A typical day at work was driving out to the frac location, logging into the computer system and taking inventory before fueling. I learned a lot about safety and being safe. The management was caring and responsive to their work force. The workplace was to work as a team making sure the job got done in a safe manor. The hardest part of the job was work 90 hours per week. Was working with my co workers and joking around
Frac Tech Fueler and warehouse (Former Employee) – Rock Springs, Wyoming – April 22, 2017
The managers will cheat you out of money and pay. They also try to have you drive past your time limit for CDL and blame it on you if your pulled over. Lube manager in Rock springs, wy. is a dirt bag and a liar who is lazy and inconsiderate. Beware of this place. They will hire you then fire you if the oil field slows down.
Logistics Coordinator/ CSR (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 28, 2017
The work morale is low because management isn't very stable, constant change doesn't help employees feel at home. Accountability would be the thing to point to why the frequent turn over. Compensation is great and so are the benefits I would say.
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.
