Exhausting and Underpaid
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Sweeny, TXDecember 4, 2018
Management is very poor, you are expected to work in rough conditions rain or shine heat and cold, you are constantly being rushed and then to slow down and be safe, they will work you to the bone one week and then give you 20 hours the next week.
Pros
Good people to work with
Cons
Inconsistent hours and management

Unfairly Paid
Technician (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXNovember 25, 2018
The work part was easy. However management would not always be organized which would cause conflict and frustration from employees. They also did not fairly. If you had any infractions on your background they would not give you a raise and make you feel like you should be paid less because of that. New people would get paid more than experience workers, who would also have to train them. And when I say more, I mean $2-$3 more. No one should be demeaned to feel like they deserve less because of mistakes they made years ago. If you work hard as everyone else you should be entitled to fair pay like everyone else.
Pros
Received Per Diem
Cons
Never actually knowing when you will get to go back to work once you're home

Decent place to work
Administrator / Operations Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Deer Park, TXNovember 19, 2018
Good place to work. Once you prove yourself, management will take notice. It can take a while, and there are definitely cliques, but one can advance. :-)

Pros

Benefits and management are really bad. Bad equipment

Bottom scale pay
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Deer Park, TX 77536November 15, 2018
There is opportunity however it doesn’t pay for the technicians in the field doing most of the work. The pay could be considerably better considering the jobs done are the dirtiest and most dangerous at times
