MWD/LWD Level 3 (Former Employee), Casper, WYMay 13, 2015
Pros: Excellent Trainning and safe work environment.
Cons: None to discuss at this time.
My tenure at Weatherford Intl was cut short due to the falling prices in the gas and oil industry. With experience brought with me from Baker Hughes INTEQ, I was brought in as a Level 3 MWD/LWD in December of 2014. Spending December and January in the field, I was asked to attend schooling in Houston through out February for their Resitivity, Neutron Density and Hazardous Environment Logging (HEL) tools. Making it through the first 2 rounds of layoffs, the time finally came on the 7th of April to join the unemployed due to lack of rigs working.
In closing, I'd like to say the time spent at Weatherford Intl was professional and knowledgeable. I only look for the industry to become alive again.

The oil and gas industry is by nature unstable. It's chicken one day and feathers the next. But we get the chicken with all the trimmings!

Working for Weatherford was very exhausting, and local management was very poor at their job, but it paid well and benefits were great.
CML/Senior Field Engineer (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAApril 29, 2015
Pros: Pay, Benefits, Sense of accomplishment
Cons: Work Hours, Time away from home, Local Management
Working for oilfield service companies is very stressful, and often requires long hours/days away from home with little to no sleep. The pay and benefits are good, but for people with a family, this is often not enough to put up with what you have to put up with. Local management was quite horrible and was not proactive in any way, which made things quite stressful on top of the normal.

INVENTORY COORDINATOR (Former Employee), New Iberia, LAApril 27, 2015
Worked 10 hrs. a day Monday thru Friday. On call every other weekend. I learned a lot about Liner Hangers with Weatherford in the last 16 yrs. with them. I'm going to miss a few of my co-worker which are very good people to work with. Hardest part of my job was mainly the long hours I had to put in, but it was all good.
