This company lied to me the whole time I worked there. They always want you to do your job and 2 other peoples job. They treat the rig hands like garbage. They are all about you making them money but when you ask for a raise they aren’t making any money. I have been told that I was number 14 mechanic that went through that office in less than a decade.

Overall good place to begin a career . If willing to understand the oilfield industry and always a place to grow. They provide good safety skills and meetings monthly to help build a career for what you are seeking.

A very high paced job ,you got to think about safety all the time .It is room to grow to be in management in the oilfield industry. The most part I enjoy is the hard work because it keeps you in good shape.

Unstable line of work... poor management and no chance for advancement or raises. Work environment is extremely unprofessional. You have to pay $100/ mo to park and not given a choice. Would not recommend this company
Near restaurants and downtown area with a park
poor management, unprofessional work environment, no raises

Basic Energy like all large corporations has its positives and negatives. Yes there are some that are easier to work with than others, but name me one place of employment that does not apply too. The most important thing to note is the assets owned, development of, and years of expirience by upper management in the Permian Basin. These are extremely important things to consider if your are looking for a career. In the latest down turn I was working for Basic. I had two pay periods when I made under 40 hours. 90% of competing companys had almost a year or more of barely making it. I moved up in position and was able to see numbers. We where literally doing work at such a low profit margin it was just enough to keep our doors open and drivers working steady to be able to take care of there familys. No one was laid off. We set hooks in areas that had previously been done by competion because of dropping our prices. This was not a 3 move checkmate. It was a strategic move for the future when prices of oil went up. We made next to nothing company wise but kept employees and expanded our customer base. Now we are growing leaps and bounds, and that expirience by upper management I spoke of early set the foundation for it. Now smart investment is in the works. Which means higher profit margin, which means more pay and opportunity for growth with in the company. My point is, if you want a good job with a stable company in the ups and most importantly downs. Basic Energy should be on your list of options.
For those with desire to work. Plenty of work
For those with not quite so much desire. Plenty of work
Basic use to be a place where employees were valued. Over the years that I have worked for basic, the less employees were valued and loyalty did not mean anything to them. I would not recommend working for basic in this area.

Depending on management will depend on your work environment. If you have a fair and compassionate manager, your work environment will be enjoyable. However, if you have an unfair and selfish manager, you're work environment will be biased and hostile.
