My original direct supervisor and her manager were great.
They hired a new supervisor under the manager I worked for and it did not work out for a few of us. I was laid off when the oil and gas industry at the time took a dive. It has been known as a volatile industry but I would like to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry despite that reputation

Smoke and Lies
Have been fed nothing but smoke and lies since I got to my district. All loyalty to the company is gone at this point as I was recently informed that what I was told previously doesn't matter and they have to what is best for the company. You express the reason for frustration and they try to offer EAP counselling because they think you have personal problems when the job and inconsistent schedule is the problem. Get told one thing and find out something totally different is happening a week later.

Hard company to work for.
Not much room for advancement. Stuck on same equipment forever.
Terrible supervisors.

They make it mandatory that you get your cdl to keep your job. Then there is the constant threat of getting fired over stupid stuff that is out of your control!

Your just a number !
The management there looks at employees like cattle. The arrogance of management is like nothing I have ever seen. I thought going in that this company would be ok to work for, but I am looking for another job right now.

Oil and Gas
The company is great. Excellent pay, benefits are outstanding.

Realize this is the oil and gas industry. Jobs come and go at the whim of the market, not the company.

You’ll work hard for your money
The money was never a problem, it was everything else. Not a good schedule if you’re traveling long distance to get to where the work is. Management isn’t bad, equipment is old, having work is hot and miss sometimes.

Great money and great co-workers
Unstable due to poor maintenance of Pumps, constantly losing contracts over it. Upper management loses focus and cares more about bonuses then quality of work.

By far an outstanding company to work for.
Have worked for Calfrac for 6+ years. As an oil service company they take care of there employees. Calfrac gives you more hours than you can handle but the pay is the best.

High turnover rate
Orientation in Broomfield Co. Great training and accomodations from cooperate in Calgary. Then in location in Williston you are on your own as a transport driver. If you don't take a vehicle..lol learn how to walk.. disoriented from the beginning...loss of direction to complete the process of getting equipment moved.

Experience
Overall my 3 years at this company have not been terrible. Though the original yard o started at closed, and we were moved out to Smithfield. I feel I've had ample amounts of growth within the company but have possibly reached the end of that growth with things.

Best frac company I worked for.
Show up, do your job and go home. Easy as that. If you show them you know what you’re doing and can do it well, you will be paid well. My time there was awesome although cut short. Mainly because I had a disregard for management. If you can get in here at the williston shop. Stay there until you have your bills paid and start saving that bank

Volatile industry
When the oil market is good, all is good and vice versa. Great culture and colleagues. Enjoyed my time there. Technology within the company is improving.

Great team and fantastic company culture
I loved working for Calfrac. It has a great company culture and I was treated with trust and respect. The Oil and Gas industry is fickle, but that is beyond Calfrac's control.
