Working Foreman (Former Employee) –  Tioga, NDNovember 6, 2017
A typical day at work was usually a very busy day. I learned a lot of various skills with the company. Management was very organized and good to be around. Work place culture is very strong. Most enjoyable part of the job was the people.

Roustabout (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAAugust 29, 2017
This company is not a fair company to work for to be honest. On several occasions I have seen people get promoted only to be demoted for no apparent reason only days later.

poor management
SAFETY SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAAugust 15, 2017
poor management, supervisor was not suited for his position. to much back stabbing going on. the crews in the field were a joy to work with. the foremen if they didn't know about something or were unsure they didn't hesitate to call for help.
Pros
had a company truck to drive.
Cons
the guys in the field were fun to work with

Dont go to carlsbad if your a true operator they will waste your time
Operator (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, NMJuly 26, 2017
They will lie to you on the phone tell you they need experienced operators and when you get there you will be doing labor work 90 percent of the time and operating 10. They have a bunch of Inexperienced operators who claim to have operated for years and but can't figure out where dipsticks are to check oil and have never seen a grease gun. No room for advancement as management hires all of their inexperienced buddies. Save yourself the headache don't go to Carlsbad and don't work for Ksi.
Pros
Per diem
Cons
No lunch breaks, non safe working environment, and constant harassment

Electrician (Current Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJune 20, 2017
Great Start to a new and up coming electrical department of a well established mechanical company. Due to the unfortunate price in oil and surrounding areas not much work was awarded. Great work atmosphere and great supervisory leadership.
Pros
Great one on one leadership.
Cons
economy and never ending battle of the oil and gas market.
