Good place to work as long as you don’t mind hard work. Pay is good. Rewarding if you enjoy hard work. I quickly advanced but to do so you have to not be afraid to get dirty and sweat. A lot asked of guys on the bottom of the totum pole. Keep your head down and work hard and you’ll have no problems.
I enjoy my job. There are good people here and the oil field pays well. You just have to understand that this is the oil field and the work availability will fluctuate. Volatile industry at times, that no secret.
Good pay, benefits and people. Great safety culture
Oil field is an up and down industry
Nabors was a good place to work. Like many large oil and gas companies, there are days you enjoy your job, and others you don't. Overall, I enjoyed the work. The only downfall is the volatility of the industry. That creates a lot of conditions that make the work very difficult to manage.
I worked for Nabors drilling for about 3 yrs in wyoming, you work in all weather conditions 24/7/365 depending on where your schedule happens to fall. I've been out there on Christmas Eve and left the rig at 6 am Christmas morning. I've also spent thanksgiving on the rig. It pays well but family is second in this industry.

Absolutely will make great money but your away from home two weeks at a time. The oilfield is very unstable so save those paychecks and don't go hog wild buying a house a monster truck and every toy you have ever wanted. Seen so many guys lose all there stuff including there wife's when things go bad in this field.
Money and the schedule can go either way
After lengthy employment, I can say Nabors is a great place to work. My experience was great due to working with the right people. Work-life balance can be difficult but that's a known factor in oilfield work as is to be expected. Consistent work and pay were competitive.
Nabors was the best job I ever had. Worked for them about a year as a roustabout and then moved to west Texas to work floors. The pay was fair for the job you were doing. I wish I could still work for this company but unfortunate things like coronavirus and oil price crash screwed that up. Was laid off and never got a call back.
Fair pay. Off 14 days
Oil based mud and dangerous environment
I loved the team I worked on. Everyone was very helpful. My manager and supervisor was extremely easy to work with. I'd still be there if it weren't for the pandemic.

Lots of work and overtime
Loved the guys on my crew for the most part. Pushers were pretty cool. Upper management took 20% of bonuses so we receive them quicker & didn’t get them for another 6 months. Also split weeks suck and pay scale is lower than most other companies.
Great group of guys
Upper management screws you
Being a operation manager I was a easy out for other people’s issues never any support or time off, equipment was second hand left over from bone yard and I had to make sure it all produced and performed daily! It didn’t
