its what you expect

management is a bunch of snakes that have their position from knowing people. Definitely not the most competent bunch. Some great pushers and supers mixed in with people that have no business running a rig.


money and the rotation


Its pretty much everything besides the work, If youve done it before its just a another day at the office.

The people you work with are great but,the pay sucks and the rig management sucks.

I never have the proper tools or parts to really operating the job. This company is broken and sold out because of not taking care of there business as a company the employers don’t know how to run a job.

My days as a hot shot driver.

My days usually stated at 7am. There were sometimes they could start as early as 4 am. On a day to day basis I could start my day in the yard moving, cleaning and painting equipment or it could start on the road. This could mean a local haul or I could be gone for days at a time. Each day was different so you never knew what you were gonna get. Being prepared for anything was always the best was.

Sorry management

If they don't like you they will find a way to get rid of you. They said after I left that they got rid of all the trash hands. They are 2 faced the manager is a sorry person.

The worst drilling company to work for. They do not care about their employees.

Horizontal Well Drillers is the worst company to work for. They do NOT take care of their employees and create a stressful work environment and will cut your pay if sent to the yard to work

Same ol boys culture.

Worked there for 4 years and while they do have good equipment, and good pay, the work culture is awful. The Management, Tool Pushers, and Drillers are still stuck in the 80's oilfield work culture. Newer Top-Drive drilling rigs w/ pipehandlers and no catwalk; yet the mindset is still from the "good ol' days". Appreciation for hardwork is nonexistent unless you're their "buddy".

Bad place to work

Management didn't have a clue what they are doing and they do not care about any employees that work there. The turn around rate is threw the roof. When you get hired on they tell you what you want to here and don't follow threw at all and the owner will holler and cuss you out for absolutely nothing you have done wrong. Verry shallow person.

Professional Challenge for any career

Fully thrived to work here, lots of challenge that come with small-medium organization where you can develop yourself to accomplish goals. Must be self motivated to keep you moving thru the organization.

Negative workplace

Very negative place to work. I revived rig of the month awards highest rating by all operators and got talked to like a dog. Very micro managed the job would be awesome if there wasn’t so much negativity.




Negative environment, discrimination, no sleep, can not do enough to please

Old equipment. Slow paced. Low experianced supervising

Very old half way dangerous equipment. Poorly set up rig locations very cramped and in unorganized. A lot of time and issues they had could of been avoided if they had better organization and communication.


Good gloves and free work laundry


Poor safty

High passed rigs

A smaller company that is driven to push their little rigs and crews. They have equipment designed to reduce exposure to injury. The down side is that it also requires more maintenance and down time


Good pay


Lots of work away from hom

Decent Place to work

Decent place to work besides them being almost 300 million dollars in the hole, You also have atleast 5 people telling you what to do at all times of the day, so you never really get anything completed.

Great people to work for

I have been with HWD since 2013. I thoroughly enjoy everything & everyone I work with. They are flexible if you need a day off for appts, however they let you know in advance when it’s going to be a busy period as well.


Management are great people.


Haven’t received a raise since I started.

Super Singles ONLY

the company was okay. Pay was pretty competitive compared to other drilling companies. Lower standards of hiring so there was a lot of trash there. And subsequently there was high turnover.


Good pay


High turnover, and a lot of worms.
