Lack of communication DON'T WORK HERE
Derrick Hand (Former Employee) –  San Angelo, TXOctober 11, 2018
If you plan on working in San Angelo don't count on it they will transfer you out of town and have you working there for weeks at a time without a vehicle and without funds to cover your stay there. You do not get your per diem until you get paid. They lack communication and do not care about their rig hands. I told crew I had strep throat and boss called while I was asleep said two days later I was a no call no show so I was fired. The company only cares about certain employees and they talk to the rest of the hands like their trash. Also there are weeks you will work 5 days in a row and other times you'll be off for a week and a half with no work. I don't suggest anyone work here.
Pros
Good pay/insurance
Cons
Not enough family time poor management

Very high employee turnover
Sand Hauler (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXSeptember 27, 2018
They don't care about their employees safety or wellbeing, only how much money you made them today ( I was told this by a manager). The trucks are all old and not maintained properly. The mattress in the trucks are old and have stains and bedbugs. They put you in a truck and expect you to clean it out from the previous 10 drivers. They want you to sit in the mancamp and wait to be called to work. Which means you could be sitting for 3-4 days with no pay. They say the hourly wage is based on driving experience but would pay drivers fresh out of CDL school with no experience more than a driver that has been with them for a year. THEY WILL TELL YOU WHATEVER YOU WANT TO HEAR TO GET YOU IN THE DOOR. MOST DRIVERS QUIT BEFORE EVEN GETTING THEIR FIRST PAYCHECK.
Pros
A week of home time (If you can afford to go home)
Cons
No guaranteed hours per week(70 hours one week and 25 hours the next), old and worn out equipment, bad management, low pay for CDL driver

Shift Manager/Material handler/Bulk Plant oporator (Former Employee) –  Jane Lew, WVSeptember 23, 2018
Great group of people work here, but due to poor management there is a shortage of coverage. Which made it difficult to meet deadlines or have a home life.

Great co workers but too many changes
Logistics Coordinator Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Midland, TXSeptember 21, 2018
The co workers are awesome to work with. The upper management is always making changes about every 6 months and can't make up their mind on what they want to do.
Pros
Great benefits, Good workers to work with
Cons
Pay is low compared to industry and they have no problem lowering pay with no warning

not taken care of
Service Operator 2 (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton, TXSeptember 20, 2018
some supervisors will not go above and beyond for their employees , everything is just go go go , rush rush rush. There was no brotherhood in the crew , they called us family but sure didn't feel like it , i felt super underpaid for my experience. the crew i was in was not a very motivation crew at all, call you out on mistakes and bash you for making mistakes a lot of degrading and not much support from supervisors
Pros
job was easy
Cons
environment was not cutting it

Stay away!!!
Frac Sand Truck Driver/ Vacuum Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXAugust 25, 2018
The company cares about making corporate money more than spreading it around to the drivers. They have more than 1 well site but for some reason if that well site goes down I stead of sending you to the other 1 they would have you sitting at the man camp for like 3-4 days with no work. No supervision at all. To many chiefs and not enough Indians. They under pay you. No more money for sleeping in the truck, plus you are under paid for all the work they want you to do.
Pros
None
Cons
Pay for lunch, barely working hrs, no leadership

Sand hauler
Sand driver (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXAugust 8, 2018
Wouldnt recommend anyone to go to be a sand hauler they will not give you the hours apply for frac, cement or wireline those guys get paid well.. the sand drivers are treated poorly there is no per diem they dont feed you at the man camp lots of drivers quit before actual training begins.... management is garbage dont let them talk you in to being a sand driver if you applied for something else they will try to use you and keep you there and tell you that you have to work for 6 months C&J sand division is thd laughing stock of tge oil field $1200.00 dollars in 3 weeks is a complete joke!!!!!!
Pros
Good benifits and pay in other divisions
Cons
Sand division sucks, dont apply for sand driving, they need to fire management, or just do away with the sand hauling

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 7, 2018
I was a Cnc maintenance tech II the actual job was slightly easy. Culture of this company is unique. Management at this company are a bunch of scattered brained individuals whom took over after bankruptcy. No working capital and I would not recommend this company to anyone.
