yard closed and no longer work there. Was a good job liked the people I worked with. Think the yard should have stayed open would return if yard opens back up

You never get a good start time, and they always want to overload the tanks. Nothing is hardly in order and they expect miracles. Way too many stops and pickups for the time frame that you are given. The whole place is micro managed by the fleet manager.

I believe this place used to be one of the better places to work but went downhill over the last 10 years. The health insurance is great and every position offers paid time off accruing from day one. However the lack of job security, few raises, and uncaring management made it a difficult place to work long term. It’s ran as a typical Corporate company where employees are just a number. All while upper management and executives rake in large bonuses and high salaries, the field office employees take pay cuts and rarely receive raises. There is no sense of family within the company at all. Everyone is out for themselves and only themselves. That mentality is really hard to be a part of for very long.

the pay was good but you never knew when they were gonna close down the yard you were working in. I was offered another position but it was over an hour commute one way and the pay wasn't worth it.
Asset Coordinator in Belfield, ND

Coming from company acquired by Basic, the last year has been difficult. Local management is great, however the directions from the corporate level are hard to interpret. Sell, sell, sell all your equipment seems like a strange direction to go. Granted the acquisition took place at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and oilfield bust, I have been through slow times before and this was by far the worst. I was stripped of all computer system access, yet still expected to provide detailed information in extremely timely fashions. Not to mention, sales of equipment were handled at the corporate level with no direction to the field level employees of when the buyers were going to pick equipment up. I better shut up in case I am recognized and put my job on the line....
