Pros: if you worked holidays they would cater with holiday spirit
Cons: having to live with 4 different men, not very much privacy.
It all depends on where we were at in the well, whether we were drilling, tripping pipe, or running casing. If we were drilling we were able to get more stuff done, tripping pipe was fun but dangerous you don't have too much time to eat or really even drink water depending on the driller, same with running casing. The management depended on the manager, some are real strict or not strict at all, which can cause confusion at times. The co-workers were nice for the most part. The hardest part of the job was being away from home for 2 weeks out of the month, and having to live with 4 other men from different parts of the country, not only on the clock but off the clock as well. That can get pretty stressful at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to learn and experience how different people can work together as one.
