Farc Tech AKA FUEL PERSON (Former Employee) – Fort Lupton, CO – January 31, 2016
Really easy money to make. You sit in a truck 10hours out of the day. Only time you actually have to work is when you have to go fill up equipment. Easy job easy money. Management is HORRIBLE!!! Your pay is always messed up you really need to pay attention to the hours you put in. The benefits are horrible as well. You dont really know when your working its a on-call-job so you cant really make plans since your not sure when your going to work. Management dont really care about there employees. Half of the trucks dont ever work and never end up getting fixed. They never have the proper tools we need for our job. They say it's a good company to move up with, that's a lie. I can go on and on about whats wrong with this company but long story short i defiantly dont recommend working here.

Asked to preform duties safely with you hands tied behind your back. Management only follows their policies and procedures when it is convenient for them. A typical day would be you are called at 9pm and told to be at work at 3am for a one day job, you show up at 2:30am because they want you to leave at your yard time. Then you might have to load products and equipment. You don't get paid until you get to location unless you are the one driving, which might be an hour to 5 hours away. You get to location an clocked in then you have to make sure all equipment on location is full of fuel. Might be 10 to 60 units. Might dispense 200 gallons or 4,500 gallons. On an easy site you might only have to fuel twice, on a hard one you might be hot fueling constantly for your twelve hour shift. Hot fueling is extremely dangerous, you have to fuel in between frac pumps that are 6 inches to 3 feet apart. In the summer time the temperatures range from 160-180 degrees between the pumps, oh it is quite load even with hearing protection. Then you think you are going home and management tells you that you get to stay for the next 5 or 6 days, hope you packed accordingly. If you consider this type of job, then you must love being dirty, wet, hot, cold, tired. Basically if your a tough sadomasochists this might be right up your alley.
When the market is up, more hours than you could want, 100 plus hours a week.
Constantly messing up your pay., When market is slow you might not work for weeks at a time with no pay.
well all in all been worse job ever day at work go sit in a truck and sit and sit,learned about fracing and stage timing,management dnt know they only lie and text you ,it is sad and bad part is they give no hours cause they salary and they get theres no matter what,hardest part on job is getting hours to even make money they hiring now and dont even have enough work the people they got

Upper management have no clue what the local managers are doing. General managers do not know how to manage themselves out of a wet paper bag. They lie to all the employees. THEY SAY THEY WILL HELP THEM BUT NEVER FOLLOW THRU. " IT'S IN THE WORKS" LOL THE PLACE IS A JOKE.
pay checks wrong every week, do not care for their employees. very poor managers.
I loved my job because for a time I was allowed to work and take care of business, and the customers were very satisfied, but Pilot does NOT care anything about established customers or established employees who know the business and have a clue about what is going on and how things work in the different areas of operation. The division I was in is a MESS, and the people working there have not been adequately trained. The only way this company will succeed is if someone else comes in and takes over and if Flying J injects a lot of money. The health insurance sucks.
Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 31, 2015
Terrible work life balance, false information was given to me at interview time. Was told we would work 1 Saturday a month. Not so! More like EVERY SATURDAY and several Sundays a month, mandatory 10-14 hr work days, no extra breaks. When I went to management for help or a question, they behaved like I was bothering them. Was often told to just deal with it. NO TRAINING, yet we were reprimanded for our mistakes. Those who worked hard were bullied by those who didn't do their work. Those that didn't do their work and brown-nosed were favored.

Having a Corporate office in another state that doesn't know anything about the customers in your area makes it difficult to do your job. Plus having to depend on so many others before you can complete your task is annoying when they don't have the same sense of urgency.

The management at Pilot is terrible. They are to worried about their own job to help you succeed in yours. They do not train you & when you ask questions they seem put out by your questions. You would work 12-16 hour days.
Terminal Manager (Former Employee) – El Reno, OK – August 24, 2015
I was with Thomas Petroleum for over a year before the merger with Pilot. After the first of the year they started laying off all the Thomas Petroleum employees. I was laid off because I was told the "company wasn't doing well" yet in the month I've been gone they've promoted their own and created jobs. For a company that isn't doing well you sure are doing a bang up job making sure your people keep theirs.
none since Pilot took over
current management don't know how to be honest with employees
i Move from Florida to north Dakota in 2011 and have worked in different companies, as a migrant sometimes its been difficult for me or it rather takes a longer time for me to fit in with co-workers e.t.c
In 2015 i had the opportunity to work with pilot logistics, right from the process of getting the job to the very day i started working, i was treated with respect, well accepted, and really felt for the first time that i have my career building company,its rather unfortunate that the fall in the oil prices world wide made some of us to be laid off, i will always get back to work with pilot logistics anytime possible. i love pilot logistics.it a great company to work for
equally distributed hours for all employees
The sudden lay offs. pre notification would have helped us
