Fun and safe

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Norton energy is a great place to get your foot in the door for the oilfield (drilling side) safety is number 1 , the bond you get with your coworkers is awesome just don’t be lazy and you shouldn’t have a problem with your crew and make a hand! Always help out! Could up the per diem though! Home every night (on certain rigs) there is definitely room to advance up

Cool place to work for cool people, if they put you on the right rig. Seven days on and Seven days off not too bad. 12 hour tours and has a man camp for employees.

Good job to work with a family

The tours were only 8 hrs a day, with a 12 on 4 off schedule which benefits anybody with a family and a set schedule. Good pay for 8 hrs a day. Work location is also not far from home.

Poor management

Could not ask for days off Or pay for driving to work . Over 2 hrs away sometimes . We couldn’t train employees the way they needed . Also bullied in to treating new hires differently to get them to quit . Humbling to work there .

Fast paced but they teach you a lot and never leave you hanging.

It was a really good job starting in the oil field industry. It’s a little rough in the beginning because it’s like learn on the go, but when it’s slow drilling there is a lot that can be learned.


Good money and overtime


Being away from family

Over all 2 stars

I m still currently working here..even though the oil per barrels low the owner manages to keep us working! However the long hours plus the cutthroat management an backbreaking labor will eat at your is good though

Hard work that pays big

if you enjoy hardwork then roughnecking is the right job for you, I enjoy the people I work with and have learned so much in the 2 years that I have been in the oilfield, I previously worked in retail and was management and just thought that I understood what it meant to work hard on a daily basis. Well I was wrong, but in the 2 years I have kept an open mind and remained positive to ensure that I continue to better myself and learn as much as possible. This has always made it easier to continue to learn because the people see that I am open to learn and they like to teach me new things.


good pay


long days and away from family alot
