Derrick Hand (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, TX – November 20, 2018
I loved working for this company. I had so many chances to advance and become better at my job. I moved up very fast. It was very hard laborious work. There wasn't a day I didn't come home dirty and tired. The company paid for everything when we worked far out of town. They gave me my own work trunk after six months.

Hard typical day of work depends from the current operation. Most of the time you learn to be resourceful with the little support you have. Management have a fair share to provide assistance sometimes very slow and unprepared. The workplace culture amounts the workers are very good. The hardest part of the job if there a lack of management support when major issues occur. The most enjoyable part is when the crew all work together to achieve a curtain goal.
I worked for Nabors after the acquisition of Tesco Corporation. I was a contract employee for the organization, and as the the need for my position came to an end, the work pace declined steadily. The management was very helpful and communicative, the pay was competitive. My only true complaint was that there was no chance for advancement during my time with the company.
Friendly coworkers, competitive pay, understanding and communicative management
No benefits, no advancement opportunity, contract employment
Floorhand/Roughneck (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – November 11, 2018
hard to move up unless u know people in upper management, just anther number to this company. pay was decent and competitive but Nabors would stack a rig over 1000 day rate instead of keeping the rig working and having jobs.
Nabors offers great people to work alongside. Everybody works with and helps one another to get the job done. There are some long hours and sometimes some difficult travel, but a really enjoyable place to work

If you don't want to work this would be a job for you, the pa district that does casing does not give u no more than 20 hour's a week and never get a raise. Only get paid 15.50 an hour. I'm not sure about how their rigs run or whatever but don't run casing thru nabors. Run away! If they want u to work at the nabors casing in Pennsylvania
Motorman/Floorhand (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 21, 2018
way overworked! work was Monday-Saturday with no knowledge ahead of time if you would even have Sunday off. Your job title did not reflect pay. Roustabouts got paid Trainee pay, Floorhands received Roustabout pay grade, so forth and so on. Horrible management and stressful, no time for family. All this place cares about is getting rigs built!!!

The company is great for those without a family or even those with a family and needing the income. The pay is excellent and you generally work one week on, one week off or two weeks on, two weeks off.

Nabors definitely took care of their employees as far as health care and life insurance they matched your 401k 75% their pay rate wasn't bad either they also took very good care of their equipment as well
