Don't do it.
Driver (Current Employee), Rifle, COMarch 5, 2014
Pros: a lot of overtime pay
Cons: everything, dispatchers lie, managers are horrible, no set schedule
Long hours, no set schedule and a hostile work environment. Managers write people up without investigating first. You are told the day before if you work the next day or not so you can't make any plans. Zero organization. This company is always hiring drivers and your starting wage is your only wage. They do not give raises. Horrible company. Just don't – more... do it. – less

If you don't suck up you don't advance period.
Shipping/receiving (Former Employee), Broussard,LAFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: health benefits
Cons: everything
The worst job I have ever had. Favoritism is your only way to move up. Getting a raise is non existent in that company. Have unqualified people in management positions. The positive was the health and dental benefits. Some people could get as much overtime as they wanted and others it was blasphemy to ask for overtime.

Applicant Trying to Get Hired
Can't get an interview (Former Employee), houston texasOctober 14, 2013
I applied for a HR position that I am well qualified for and can't get them to even look at me. They keep posting the same job over and over. For a Company this big it seems they would be in need of someone like me with my experience and background.

Total lack of organization or management
Laboratory Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TexasMarch 11, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, unlimited overtime permitted, and company pool bonus
Cons: no recognition or reward for accomplishments/hard work
A typical day at work varies. On a slow day, most technicians sit at the computer surfing the web for hours. On a heavy day, the same, only a few technicians work non-stop and stay past hours to complete tasks.

Management seems to have no grasp of work activities on a day-to-day basis, and is generally non-existent.

Preferential treatment (projects – more... assignments, raises, promotions, etc.) is given on the basis of: a) seniority over merit, b) gender, males over females, c) relatives of employees (nepotism is company-wide), and d) anyone from Halliburton (?).

What I learned:
1) If possible, interview or consult a current or past employee of company in same or similar position.
2) You can't always predict a really poor job fit. Paying attention to the mannerisms of the management prior to hire may give clues. IF they seem apathetic, don't count on them to be aware of your progress, supportive of your advancement, or concerned with anything going on in general. – less

Great Company to work for
Wireline Assistant II (Current Employee), Harvey, LANovember 11, 2012
Great Company to work for, being a slickline operator does not fit into my long term caree goal in the oil field. It has taught me so much that will propel me high through my career. Superior Energy Services takes very good care of there employees. They have excellent benefits. What company gives you a loaner generator and free food and gas during all – more... major hurricanes we have been through. They are the best company I've ever worked for besides myself. If you work hard and show initive you will go far and make alot of money. – less
