The interview process was 5 star. They laid out the red carpet. They made you feel excited to work there. But it was an awful experience and generally you were very unhappy you chose to work for them. When I got hired, there was maybe 5 veterans that got hired on at the same time and we had all left within a year for much better jobs. They had very bad Managment. They would keep the worst workers that could not perform their duties because pay was not competitive for the areas. Their was zero potential to move up or even get a mediocre raise. I would advise to look elsewhere for work.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything about the place.

Management was horrible said there wouldn’t be retaliation for reporting but as soon as something is reported they start pointing fingers and firing. Training was a joke. There was no consistency on which rig you were on always getting bounced around. If I could give it a no stars rating I would. To them your just a number.
Pros
I liked the Motus program because there pickups are way run down
Cons
Pretty much everything you could expect from a big corporation

Work itself was not difficult. Guys are okay to work with but the way they run things is just terrible. Management doesn't care about anyone and only promote their buddies regardless of job performance or seniority so if you're looking to promote you can forget about that. Work culture claims to be safe but it goes out the window once you walk out of the safety meeting. Don't expect to trust anyone here simply work and go home.
Pros
Schedule is standard and benefits
Cons
Terrible management starting from the top guy, layoffs, lower pay

At the time when things were busy their were alot of good people who worked out of the Woodward Ok fishing yard. The downside is that they were doing it for less than everyone else in the patch, unless of course they happen to be related to management and then their pay was above average. The overall job culture throughout the company was a safety at their convenience type of attitude, using their safety program as a way to duck & dodge liability more than anything else
Pros
Good guys in the field
Cons
Nepotism, Safety at their convenience, Always behind on reimbursement of OOP, below average pay, 55-60 yours a week required in the shop when not out on a job, no overtime pay

If you ever have a problem with your rig and it needs or should be fixed. Good luck because management will tell you its just fine and you can work without it and thats just the start.

I had an ok experience there. Management was mediocre at best, but always had something to do. They put you threw school to get the proper training, so that was a plus.

● Work-life balanceMost people in the oil field work 12-hour shifts, and you there to make money. key energy was really a safe company to work for too.● Pay & benefitsThere's always a company that will pay more in the oil field.● Job security and advancementManagers are always coming and going in the oil field so do your job well and you'll be next in line for promotion.● ManagementSome old school, some new school, some bad, some good● CultureThere's a safe way to get it done, you're getting paid by the hour so do it safe not fast.● OverallKey Energy was my first job in the oil field and I think they did a great job in training the newbies. Key really promotes safety as number one, a lot of companies out there put it at number two or lower.

If you are not liked then management will treat you badly and do everything they can to run you out of the job even if you are good at the job. You get little training and written up for messing up. Management will talk about you behind your back. Not a good work environment

There are no repercussions for wrong doing & no reward for loyalty, dedication and hard work. No one there cares about moving the company forward, performance, ethics, policy, procedure, customer service, employee rights, etc. You're told to do more with less. They do not value good employees.
Pros
You can do whatever you want as long as you just show up everyday.
Cons
Safety is just something they talk about in meetings.
