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.
Good training, Good Coworkers.
No Home Life, Blended Overtime
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.
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
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!!
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...
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."
fast paced, lots of hours

Jobs at Express Energy
Express Energy was a awesome place to work. I enjoyed the environment, the staff and management. Working here I was able to use my own judgement and was included was if I was permanent employee.
Half a day fridays once a month.
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.
bad management leading to major downsizing
Good company to work for when oil prices are good. Upper level managment had to make tough decisions when oil prices plummented but they tried to be fair on tough decisions.
Good pay and little upper level supervison if you take care of bsiness.
Bought by holding company that had little experience in O&G. Not matching 401K plan.
Upper management great at helping sales staff secure work, by being great team players. Hardest part of the job, 6500 miles per month to secure work.
driving 6500 miles per month to secure work!
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.
Consistent, great pay and benefits, lots of overtime and hard workers.
Very little time with family.
My days were filled with challenging and new on the job work experiences. I looked forward to the opportunity to work with as well as learn from a diverse group of people from different levels and companies. I am grateful for the opportunity given to me to be able to a part of their team and posses the knowledge i now have in oil and gas.
great benefits, great pay, a safe enviroment
being away from home
