Line Locator Technician (Former Employee) – Wyoming – February 6, 2018
Really enjoyed my time at KSI in Wyoming. My immediate supervisor was top notch and really cared about those of us that worked under him. Upper regional management was sub part IMO. Plenty of opportunity to work and make good money when oil and gas prices are good, but like all energy companies business would slow if prices dropped...nature of the business. Usually no issue with getting vacation time and overtime was usually an option if you wanted to work more. This was 5 years ago, things may have changed since then.
Working Foreman (Former Employee) – Tioga, ND – November 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.

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.
Dont go to carlsbad if your a true operator they will waste your time
Operator (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, NM – July 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.
No lunch breaks, non safe working environment, and constant harassment

Electrician (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – June 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.
Great one on one leadership.
economy and never ending battle of the oil and gas market.
Safety Professional (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – March 27, 2016
As a field safety pro, I was tasked with everything from daily site visits to writing Pre Work Plans. I found the work to be fast-paced and enjoyable. There was a commitment to working safe and the workforce embraced the safety culture that the company and customer worked to achieve and maintain.

KSI strives to be the best contractor an every job site. They have a good track record for completing jobs with great productivity and safety. I enjoyed the learning so much at KSI. Supervisors make sure to keep work in front of you through out the day
