Sanjel Review
Electronic Technician (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDApril 25, 2016
Loved this job until I found out that there is no job left. Of course the oilfield is taxing on life in general. Would have high ratings if the company was no more. Loved the people. Practically lived at work. It was great while it lasted. Work life balance would have been a one because the oilfield can be tough. I loved work so this wasn't a big deal. It's too bad it came to an end. Not secure when it goes out of business. Was willing to stay for a long time.
Pros
people
Cons
The business is shut down

Sanjel's culture is the most enjoyable part of the job. Management encourages teamwork and gives the autonomy you need to gain experience.

Management needed training in people skills.
Cement Pump Operator (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDApril 16, 2016
I felt like I was treated like an extension of the equipment.

There was very much a lack of respect and dignity from management.

I made good money and benefits.
Pros
It was a job that paid well
Cons
The hours were tough and long in very cold conditions.

Lead Operator (Current Employee) –  Fort Lupton, COApril 1, 2016
For the most part, Sanjel is a great place to work. Unfortunately with oil prices dropping and staying low for so long, every oil field services company is feeling the pinch now.

Good Company within its peers
Manager (Former Employee) –  TexasFebruary 10, 2016
Private company with its pro and cons. All employees share the load in good and bad times. Measures under crisis mode not different than other companies or those that business guidelines will dictate.
The company provide for additional support to its employees when required and this is not typical in big companies.

A very self rewarding job....
Lead - Parts Specialist (Former Employee) –  Williston, ND and Buffalo, Wy.February 6, 2016
Always busy, multi-tasking.
Always something new to be learned.
Am going to miss a lot of people I had the pleasure to work with.
Hardest part of the job was keeping all the mechanics happy!
The people I worked with and the every day challenge of finding the 'odd ball' oil field parts!
Pros
Staying busy, good pay!
Cons
Bad attitudes of some of the people

Fracturing Data Van Operator (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDFebruary 3, 2016
This is a good company for young inexperienced people looking to enter the oil and gas industry. If you have aspirations of being a 'Company Man' or consultant for an Oil Company this is an excellent place to start.
The lessons learned about working as part of a team and what you can learn about yourself are invaluable.

The guys out in the field make the company
Fracturing (Former Employee) –  Cibolo and Odessa, TXJanuary 1, 2016
The guys out in the field making the money have been asked to carry a heavy burden as the industry changes and have done so admirably. Amazing safety record thanks to the efforts and care of those on location. This is completed all while dealing with an often times inadequate and occasionally inept management team. Middle management is awful. Nepotism is how you will move up. Poor planning resulting from a break in communication between office and field personal. Unqualified individuals in certain positions cause work/planning to be more difficult than it should.
Pros
Safety Culture
Cons
Nepotism, Favoritism

Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Corrizo Springs TxDecember 10, 2015
Good place to work when that are rigs to drill but a bad place to be when the drilling stops because then the work stops and that's when the money starts to go away and then you get laid off. But all in all it was a great experience and I've learn many things that will build my knowledge base so that I'm more marketable down the road.
Pros
Good money when rigs are drilling
Cons
No money and layoffs when there is no drilling

Lube tech/ shop hand (Former Employee) –  Cibolo, TXOctober 26, 2015
Safety is number one thing with this company. But when it comes to moving up, its hard if you don't hang with the crowd. They will rest you are going to be out for a long time. This company will also not work you hard.
Pros
Safety
Cons
expensive healthcare

Great place to work.
Frac Crew Driver (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDApril 27, 2015
Long hours. Inspected bus before each run for safety. Drove frackers from man camp to shop then onto job site. Returned frackers that were at job site to shop then to man camp. After dropping off the frackers returned bus to shop to wash inside and outside of bus. Fueled bus and completed a post trip inspection.


The coordinators were awesome to work with. When the ice rain fell and no one could walk much less drive they agreed not safe to drive and told us to stay at man camp.

I enjoyed driving the guys out to the site. They were always excited on the last and first days of the shift. So, would stay awake and joke around. Made the trip go really fast.
Cons
Had to cut pay due to oil prices dropping.

Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Odessa,TXApril 23, 2015
Just an all around great place to work. The Odessa yard is where I was out of. Good people to work with for the most part. Had some issues with management. Didn't really appreciate the work that was being done from one of their Supervisors.

Do to the drop of oil layoffs and workers quitting it's sad to say it's an everyday thing .I here the money use to be good only bringing 2600 a month yes 2600. The stress levels here have taken lead man going paranoid rest of the other guys are ok to get along with the office staff are willing to help now that there job is at stake is use to be worse, safety wise they preach about it at the end the attitude is get the Job done safety goes out the window.

I hope I get laid off soon no hard feelings I can make the same on unemployment almost .600 A week here in ND and search some where else plenty of work still out here just need experience in truck driving witch I don't have. For what it's worth good experience for me.
