Field serive tech (Former Employee) – Northeast – March 10, 2018
Would not recommend anyone to work here if you have a family if your single and want to make some “some” money ok might be alright but for what they want you to do it is way under pay also good place to work if you love drama because most of what I seen in my years there was drama for being such a big company it is ran like a mom and pop shop where left hand doesn’t know what right hand is doing also if you love new rules and SOP every week or two a great place for that they say one thing then a week later want you to do it this way

Reviewed analyses of activities, costs, and operations data to determine division progress toward stated goals. • Implemented MAPICS business, inventory management, and cost system. • Consolidated one business unit with 3 locations into one for $2M annual savings.
Short breaks, they expect you to work 60+ hours a week and get mad when you have to take a day off to handle affairs in the real world.

I would not recommend this place as a permanent job unless you don't mind only being home 2 hrs a day, never seeing your family, don't mind others raising your kids because you don't have time to, don't mind that the pay is way under what it should be for the amount of work they expect from you, with constant changing rules (daily)
There are no pros for being an employee at this company
Poor pay, extremely long hours, really poor management
Good place to work if you don't mind working 60 plus hours a week
CNC Lathe Operator (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – February 4, 2018
Hours are 5 to 5 in most areas of the company. Sometimes you have to work 72 hours in a week. Pay is okay and you can have a lot of vacation time. There is a good benefit package in line as well as 401k.

At the interview oilstates sound fantastic, but once they hook you in it becomes a race to the bottom, management leave alot to be desired and there seems to be no definitive direction or leadership in the company and career progression is hard to obtain, lots off internal politics and backstabbing at middle management level, but the co workers are ok, feel very disappointed with the company over all and the lack off professionalism and felt I was undervalued and underpaid, hence I chose to leave, and doubled my pay elsewhere, definitely would not recommend.
I very much enjoyed working for this company. The pay was competitive and the benefits were amazing and at great prices. The coworkers were very easy to get along with, friendly, helpful and informative.
not an but kisser (Former Employee) – Watsontown, PA – September 30, 2017
People I worked with were great, very large company. Managment is inexperienced at what they do and show alot of favortism to friends. this is at the Watsontown, Pa facility. other facilities may be different. No matter how good you are at your job or what you do, the company don't really give a s**it about you !!!!!!!!!
Great learning experience and good people to work with.
Field Service Technician III (Former Employee) – Kilgore, TX – January 16, 2017
I learned a lot working here and the more I learned the more I was respected and treated very nicely, The hours kept me on the road a lot but the managers were lenient and understood that I had children so they tried to keep me close to home whenever possible, and if you needed time off it was given without question. Overall a great place to work and great people to work with.

Manyfacturing Coordinator/Warehouse III (Former Employee) – Houma, LA – January 3, 2017
Oil States is very productive and rewarding to work their. I was given opportunity to better byself in the daily operations.Oil States was committed with the safety and attitudes of the employes. I felt like a family member. Oil States gave employees free lunches and if you had to work late on a special project they would have food available also. We also had a daily safety program that a employee from different departments would walk the complex looking for safety issues. I enjoyed the work and people I met at Oil States.
