FIELD SERVICE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Hobbs, NMAugust 7, 2018
I enjoyed working here at first. Was promised a promotion. After I uprooted my entire family, no raise, no promotion. Eventually, I was fired for taking the wrong piece of equipment to location.

Good company
Wireline Engineer (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXSeptember 30, 2017
Liked it. It paid the bills. They used you and abused you sometimes. When they could they would allow you to take care of family issues. It's a tough job and is not for everyone.
Pros
Pays the bills
Cons
No family life

Loved the job, just hate it had to come to an end after they sold the company and relocated on very short notice which landed a few of the employees in a bind.

Operator (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXApril 17, 2017
Possibly a good company to work for, management can't or won't give you a straight answer on anything such as: your shift schedule, what crew you would be on and when you may get out on location with said crew or how per diem is paid out.
Pay is not enough to leave home and pay for your own apt and living expenses.

Great pay, no life and employees are expendable.
Operator - Wireline (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXJune 18, 2016
Great pay doesn't make up for the fact that management is comprised of family and buddies most of which are incompetent. Hardest working employees are let go and buddies are promoted. At one point company had a lot of great field employees but they have all been let go. If you enjoy kissing up to management, having no life outside of work and the constant threat of losing your job this is the place for you. Look up all the labor lawsuits for not paying employees overtime.
Pros
Great pay and benefits.
Cons
No personal life. Incompetent upper management. Constant fear of being let go.

Takes care of their own.
Explosives Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXMay 16, 2016
The company likes to promote from within and it truly recognizes the people putting forth effort. Whether it be a plane ticket away for a week while paid or an extra chunk of cash in your pocket the company takes care of the people who work there.
Pros
Pay and benefits, Management cares for the people under them.
Cons
Long hours can overtake life.
