Oil Field alot of hours but i enjoyed it
Pump Operator (Former Employee) – Victoria, TX – September 9, 2015
As a pump operator I was responsible for pumping fluids down hole. I also kept track of where the fluid was located down hole. I would get to location, put on equipment, rig up the iron to the well head, and pressure test everything before starting the job (pumping fluids down hole.) may run anywhere from two days to three four weeks. I would train many crew members on how to run the pump, as I trained to be an upcoming supervisor. Kept up with DOT logs, Lead safety meetings explaining our procedures and the schedule of how we plan to go about the job. Identified potential hazards and made sure everyone had communication (headsets) Finish the job, rig down, and back to the yard to perform maintenance. 16-18 hour shifts.
Great money, amazing team work, and room to grow within the company
Oil field slows down and there is no job securtiy.
