Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ft. Lupton, CO – December 19, 2016
Company failed financially. Was unable to withstand the industry downturn and in turn filed for bankruptcy. Upper management was not the best people for their positions and the bankruptcy was what followed.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – September 19, 2016
The work environment here changed on a day to day basis. It was difficult to work with some of the upper management since everyone was on a different page. The employee's are great people but I can't say the same for the office personal different agendas and buddy buddy system was a big factor here. Over all the company it self was great to work for aside from a few differences
This was a great company to work for. Only company I could walk in every morning with a smile on my face knowing I got one of the best jobs and leaving the same way. My immediate supervision was great they always had our interest first priority. There was definitely more work then family time. Good Safe Job culture and we watched each others back. Great Company.
The bad, It was very top heavy. They didn't take care of problems they knew were problems. Mostly in spending money, hence why we are bankrupt now.
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.

Manager (Former Employee) – Texas – February 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.
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!
Fracturing Data Van Operator (Current Employee) – Williston, ND – February 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.
Fracturing (Former Employee) – Cibolo and Odessa, TX – January 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.
