Lead Field Mechanic (Former Employee) – Hobbs, NM – October 29, 2018
If you want to feel like a slave with no life and no time off this is the place. You stay on well site for more than 24hours a day and you get to sleep here and there 30 minutes at the time, but hey they expect you to be 100 percent fit for duty. When you get to go to a hotel they put you in the cheapest bedbug hotel there's. You never receive support from your supervisors. They are bothered every time you need to call them for support. Upper management positions are grandfathered in. They don't really look for the persons qualities to be a supervisor. Their pay is the lowest among other service companies for mechanics. There's no schooling time what you learn is what you learn on the field.
I was hired over the phone. Pay, and benefits were the best I had ever had. We had a 28/14 schedule. Enough time to make money and enough home time to make it worthwhile. Even though we were based in North Dakota we got to work in Montana, Wyoming and in Colorado. Saw some beautiful country , as well as being paid exceptionally well. I looked forward to coming to work after the end of days off.
Electronic Technician Supervisor (Former Employee) – Broussard, LA – September 5, 2018
Going into the office and being the only Electronic Tech at the facility. Teaching the Field supervisors how to use Digital Meters so I could help them troubleshoot problems on jobs. Learned how to become a supervisor and work with people on jobs that don't understand electrical or electronics to troubleshoot their problems while on different jobs. Constantly updating the equipment with setting it up and getting it ready in the shop. The Engineer, Programmer and myself built a fail safe controls for Snubbing Jobs.
New shop nice and clean.
Different calls from different jobs with problems at the same time.
Cudd is by far the superior in the field. I've been around and really actually miss the place. The downfall is like all the others. Buddy system instead of individual performance and willingness to learn. Other than that their structure when I was there was strong and full of knowledge. Dont plan on having family time tho. If you not popular your pay stay lower and u have to claw to get anywhere
Get buff and a tan! Learn about new cultures languages!
Equipment Operator IV (Former Employee) – Kirby, TX – August 20, 2018
Pay was always right on. Never any games with overtime. They were strait with me, no bologna about what I was stepping into. Real deal oil field good and bad but no crud. You better have a working knowledge of Spanish or Nigerian but everyone was professional. I got a nice tan, safety guys are safety guys some were out of control others knew they're stuff. Cover your rear driving, do a real pre trip and have enough spine to decline if not up to code. Over all good Oklahoma company that tries to do right.
Oilfied Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 10, 2018
The san Antonio management just get rid of me for no just cause, the reason they gave for my dismissal was never my fault. The reason i said it was not my fault for not carrying out company policy is this ,as a green hat on location my supervisor were not supposed to give me separate job task without a mentor but they did it made me to lose my job without given second chance ,on location i worked by myself on frac pump by doing packing and tightening of bolts of two different frac pumps which they were not supposed to do but i got fired because i obeyed my superior at the job . Again another reason they gave me was that when i started with the company at their yard they also accused me of not following my mentor and at that point in time i had no mentor and i blamed for not having mentor but my then supervisor was the one i thought that supposed to be my mentor because i new to the system also i was blamed for not having mentor when I barely understand the system. I really don't understand how they really expect me to follow order but the superior employee contradicted the company policy but i was fired for working diligently for CUDD ENERGY SERVICES AS EQUIPMENT OPERATOR SAN ANTONIO DISTRICT. I really don't want to leave the company i love the company i want to continue working for them that's the reason i applied again when i saw another opportunity in Odessa texas. I don't really want to leave CUDD i will be more than happy if i can get my job back. Thanks
