Great company to work for however the lady I was working under believed in smoking every 15 min and that is annoying when trying to quickly complete tasks and have to stop for approval from her.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Personnel issues

oh lord what to say...

Great learning experience of the Oilfield life style. At home for a few hours and get a call that its time to go to work. On call 24/7 the call outs are just when ever they get notice hints 3am at times or 10 pm. I will say you are paid for every moment you are at work. But don't think your getting paid one rate. Shop hours are $10.00 an hr. Drive time is 10.00 AN HR. LOCATION IS DEPENDING ON POSITION. And overtime is as they call blended. Even though you get $20.00 an hr does not mean your overtime is $30.00. I have seen many paychecks of over 140 hrs for one week so be willing to leave the home life. And when your home don't plan anything ahead of time. And if you ask for vacation time dont be surprised when they work you till 12am that day and don't even give you the hole day. But it for the most part a safe place to work as long as you watch your surroundings and understand the risks.

Pros

Good training, Good Coworkers.

Cons

No Home Life, Blended Overtime

Monopoly

The company has only 1 group in my area who are all related to each other getting most of the jobs while others are sitting around for days waiting for work. The scheduling needs to be revamped by management to be fair to all employees or at least be up front with new hires.

great company if you know someone

this is a typical you can get a job at if you know someone is more of who u know than what u know.. the company as many others you're just a number making money for them while you make a check salary isn't that bad hours are alright but they have so many internal *** that all they claim on training as soon u step a foot in the reality is gone!!

Pros

paycheck

Cons

management
Was this review helpful?

Toxic work atmosphere

You WILL get yelled at at least 5-10 times a week. This is their preferred way of management across the board. You feel as if you’re constantly walking on thin ice; one mistake and it’s thrown in your face. Management is very cliquey with certain people in dispatch. You will get “thrown under the bus” many times. They over work their crew haulers and techs...they are always understaffed and expect things to miraculously get better, but the management team doesn’t want to take time to fix things where they count the most. There is no such thing as praise for your hard work efforts, only ways can get blamed for something you had no control over. The list goes on and on and on... lots of favoritism...

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Everything

Bunch of little girls in elementary school.

Nothing but unnecessary drama with the management staff in the dispatch office. The insane part is they tell you on the first day, "If you can't handle drama this is not the job for you."

Pros

fast paced, lots of hours

Cons

incompetent staff and terrible internal communication

Out of business in my area.

Express was a very fast paced place to work. You could work as many hours as you wanted but it didn't pay very well. The company disappeared just as fast as it came into my area.

You better save up everything you can if you are going to go career in the oilfield

I learned that this industry is the epitome of hard work and takes no back seat to any other job when it comes to giving 100% effort in everything you do. Every person on the job is important, so there can no weak links or the entire company can suffer.

Pros

compensation

Cons

bad management leading to major downsizing

Hard work with great pay and benefits as long as the oil and gas business is active.

Long hours, hard work, dirty, constantly moving from place to place. Great pay with overtime and great benefits. You have to be very safety conscious and dependable.

Pros

Consistent, great pay and benefits, lots of overtime and hard workers.

Cons

Very little time with family.

Pros

Flexible work outs.
