Project Manager (Former Employee) – Louisiana – June 11, 2018
I have never experienced more gender bias anywhere. I was a female Project Manager and was treated very unfairly. The men were very jealous of my position and they were continuously trying to cause problems. If I needed to talk to my supervisor regarding any gender bias it was "blown off" like it was nothing. The men in upper management finally "ran me off". It's hard to work somewhere knowing that you have no support. I moved on to another company, a large oil company, and I have been happy ever since. I wouldn't recommend working for Danos to anyone....especially if you are female. The best part of this day was hitting the clock and going home.
This company was great to work with, people were somewhat friendly.

The forman was not the greatest, but i was just there to do my job, not to make friends. Other workers made the job bearable until completed. The work environment was totally different because it was my first time on an offshore rig. Definitely a job to remember.

On any other job offshore I've been on I've made on average $4-$6 more per hour. Was paid mileage and drive time, would get paid 12 hours a day on days coming and going from platform, etc, too many bass to list, don't work for them unless your desperate. Oh and they treat you like you don't know anything. Ready to leave.
Ballast Control Officer (Current Employee) – Gray, LA – January 7, 2018
They keep most of the contract money and low ball you on your check. They promise this and that but if you do happen to get a raise every 4-5 years its only going to be a few cents to a dollar. My wife had to go to 6 different doctors just 3 days ago to find one that would take our insurance. I got sick one time (something that was totally out of my control) and was threatened to be fired by the project manager because of it. I was sent 200 miles one way (3 hours) to take a physical and was promised a hotel room once I got there because I had to be at the heliport the next day to catch out. Once I got done with the physical I called and asked if my hotel room had been set up yet. At that time I was told that I wasn't going to get a hotel room nor was I getting paid for driving down there. I had to drive 3 hours back to the house to get a couple hours of sleep and then drive right back down there to catch out the next morning and work a 16 hour shift. That's 12 hours on the road without a dime or any consideration for safety. Its not worth wasting my time with them anymore. Plus I am tired of being lied to and treated like an inmate. Last time I checked I wasn't in federal prison. I have about 10,000 more complaints with them but I'm just going to save it. Go to work for them and you will find out for yourself. It will start off kinda decent but will quickly fall apart once they get you settled in.
Management, The actual work is garbage, Treated like an animal
I enjoyed working at danos they cared about their employees and made person want to come to work veyday they gave you the proper training you needed to do your everyday tasks you needed to do to make your job easy and made your job enjoyable a place to make you want to go to everyday

Danos hire people that come to work for a check and can careless about putting in the hard work. People are quick to talk without listening to the problem. Management brush you off when you have a problem with process put in place are broken. Communication is about 100% of the problem with about 80% of it's employees It seems like management can careless what's going on as long as they get paid from their contracts.

More of the negativity can be blamed on the company I am contracting for which is OXY, but Danos is also heavily to blame. Thee way we work is at minimum 84 hours straight over 7 days, but they have it slit in the middle to keep you from getting paid overtime. No bonuses... The equipment provided has tons of problems and are constantly in the shop because it's all warn out junk. Tools are generally hodge podge old rusted junk, and it's similar to pulling teeth to get what you need for the job. 90% of the time we are in spare trucks without tools due to trucks being in the shop. It's just not a good environment...
The first thing in the morning, I drive pad to pad doing daily operations, checking over units, checking pressures, walking pads to check tank levels, getting numbers for 31 day books, and any repairs that need done.
Welder (Former Employee) – Amelia, LA – May 25, 2017
Danos was a great job to work at. I had no problems with co-workers are supervisor. Working there was a great experience for me. Owners were very nice to work for, they really treated their employees very well and with the upmost respect.
