The leads and management are never satisfied

I got left alone to do a 5 person job and it looked better when I was done working a week by myself then it did when the other workers would go on days off. I have always been a valuable employee at every job I have worked at but the people that I worked with here hated me because I made them look bad. When I got hired I was told I would be on my husband's rotation and they ended up putting me on the opposite schedule and I tried to work something out for 6 months to get on the schedule I was promised and they were not accommodating. The people that watched me work from the other departments were also confused why they treated me like garbage and talked bad about me because they seen that I worked really hard.

Pros

There's no pros working for a toxic environment

Cons

Toxic people around

It's a horrible place

Don't waste your time and energy working here. This place doesn't care about employees, it's just a place that will find another one when you leave.

Opportunities to Grow

Worked many hours and was given many opportunities to grow and expand within the company. Management was supportive of growth and work/life balance. Enjoyed everyone I worked with.

Good place.

Good place to work and learn. Pay is not too bad, more on the good side. If you land on the right crew, you can definitely learn a lot. Good people to work with

Good hiring process

I had a pleasant hiring process with the company. The company provided a very detailed offer which made me analyze if the job was something I really wanted to experience.

Great company to work for

The pay and benefits are very good. The 401k was excellent. I would have retired at 60 years old. If I hadn't been laid off. There was a company annual raise. Plus you could get step raises by doing company courses on line.

Good work

Oilfield work so it's long and hard, halliburton had great opportunity to move up and make it a career, it can be hard on the family since your working and gone a lot but it's what you make of it.

Great manager/employee atmosphere

Direct exposure to department management was refreshing. Work atmosphere was in general a fun, laid back experience. Freedom to get my work done at my own pace and structure.

Job Function Not Defined

Let's just say what your job function is vs what other roles you have to do are two different things. You have other peoples job to do on top of your own. People have left and there has not been any backfill. The ones left over have more roles to fill and management doesn't care sitting at home as we call it "WORK FROM HOME" lifting their remotes and 40 ouncers.

Very little down time and decent pay

Just a stepping stone for experience and knowledge in the oilfield. Shows a lot of favoritism no matter how hard you work if you’re not in their “group” no raise for you.

Pros

Plenty of overtime

Cons

Politics

Easy work and good pay

Halliburton is a good company to work for especially if you’re new to the oilfields; great benefits and decent pay. It’s rough at times the hours spent here, but you’re warned before hired. The work is fairly easy I believe.

Hard labor

Great if you’re not lazy and wanted to come in to just collect a check otherwise you won’t last when it comes to rigging up and rigging down. At the end of the day your just a number to the company but if you do your job you don’t have to be worried about getting let go first when it comes to layoffs.

What is the best part of working at the company?I have been with the company for about 4 years on and off for about 7 years and unfortunately it has changed for the worse. Leadership is unprofessional, HR only looks put for the company and not for its employees. Safety is basically non existent regardless of what they preach. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Time away from family while barely making 60k a year What is the work environment and culture like at the company?There is no culture you are just a number to them.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Wake up work, get home and prepare to work the next day. On your days off then you stress about going back to work.
