Floor hand (Former Employee) – Williston, ND – June 14, 2018
I liked it and want to get back to it. I wasnt prepared for some of the uncivilized people but now I know when I get back there things will be fine. I was there 1 1/2 years. We would start at 5oclock in the afternoon or 5 in the morning and work until 6.

Trip pipe, clean rig, maintain equipment, & move rigs. Can't say they taught me much at all. The Management seemed like they were incapable of making a decision on their own. My way or the high way. The hardest part was not knowing where I was going to be moved to next. Was able to work with a lot of good people in a short time.
There are a lot of nice perks working for Nabors including an on site: gym, coffee shop, and cafeteria. But the company itself treats its employees very robotically and does not fairly compensate tenured employees outside of upper management.

A few things I liked about Nabors was their work environment, it was fast paced but very knowledgeable at the same time. They are keen and up to date on safety and procedures which was also a very positive thing. They take the time to thoroughly train you before putting you to make so that you understand the jobs and tasks at hand.

The management is poor everything goes through HR. So if you are one of the best workers in your department and everyone sees it, it doesn't matter because HR doesn't think you deserve what you are asking for. There's guys that been leads for 3 years and haven't got a raise. For an oilfield company they try to run it like a fast food restaurant. nobody joins the oilfield for 40 hours. Managers have no experience with tools or in this field.

didn't like the job of floor hand that i was to educated for and couldn't get promoted to motorman because the boss and the motorman at the time were best pals even though the existing motorman did very poorly at his job he was still secure in it
