Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 4, 2018
Some guys were easy to get along with. But the ones that been there for a while act like there you know what don’t stink! They won’t teach you or show you anything and I’m sure talking to upper management would just get you fired. There was only one guy there that was really awesome as a supervisor. They won’t put per diem all on one check. They try to split it up by how many days you worked. Unless you agree to get it at the end of your hitch which makes no since cause I need the money out on my hitch not when I’m home. I just wasn’t impressed at all. Equipment is junk like everyone else. They bragg they the best company around but yet all last week guys were off cause of no work lol. So good luck if you try calfrac. It just wasn’t for me

Like every job you have to bring a go to attitude or it can be a hard days work. I enjoyed learning as much as I could and always doing the right thing. There is always going to be those people that back-stab, push and bully others to up there position. If you work hard and stay away from that it will always be in your benefit.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Calfrac and would highly recommend Calfrac as an employer. Calfrac was always a fun place to work, even during the down-turn. I loved my colleagues, employees and management.
Don't speak up and just become good friends with certain people to move up not hard work it's a buddy system. This company would be great if there could be able to offer more home time or at least be more family oriented
Good guys you will work with and become like brothers

Calfrac was a different breed of its own. very fast paced some days. production goals often trump safety, which isn't good in the gas and oil industry. But if you watch out for your own safety, you should be alright. it takes a lot of common sense.
Field Electronics Technician (Current Employee) – Williston, ND – December 1, 2017
It was a great place to work, and the work environment was great. It was a great company to work for and the employees are very welcoming. I never had an issue there without it getting resolved with all parties getting the results they wanted.
Maintenance Mechanic II (Current Employee) – Williston, ND – November 27, 2017
Overall it's not a bad place to work. There are some slow times and some fast paced times when we get our crews in from the field and we only have 3 to 4 days to get the services and repairs done. Work at your own pace and be safe. Of course with any job you have you'll have a bad egg but for the most part everybody gets a long with everyone. Upper management is great but some of the middle management could use some improving. Mechanics go to Denver for training for 6 days where the frac operators and drivers go for 11 days. The normal rotation is 15 on and 6 off. I've heard rumors of them trying to change it to an 8 and 6 in the shop.
Make good money at the cost of having a job you hate
Operator (Current Employee) – Red Deer – October 16, 2017
They preach communication is key but can't even tell you if you are bringing your clothes bags when you head to location. You tend to get more information from your hotel staff then your supervisor and or crew cabber.
You can make good money but it is not worth the stress. Does not feel like you are working with a team of guys more like inmates and treated as such.
They are very close to losing their license to have trucks on the road. Which is understandable considering they have no issue making you drive over houred way too regularly and not just by a little.
Plan and simple it is just a very negative work environment.
Being over houred, treated like you are worthless reguards of your experience, the list is just way too long to fit in here... Just stay away
