Good place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's simple; if you are familiar with the oilfield culture and that some jobs do require living away from home for 7 to 14 days at a time and everything in your life is in order, go for it.

Pros

One can earn a sufficient enough living here to raise a family within their means

Cons

There will be times of elevated stress dealing with hazardous conditions and unpredictable events, lookout for your fellow worker and they will do the same for you

Overall horribly run

The culture is show up and collect a check. No one cares. Management lacks organization/process/leadership. Hard work is unappreciated. The hardest working guys never get raises, or promotions. In fact they get laid off first. Promises for training and advancement lead nowhere.

Pros

Better than being unemployed.

Cons

Non existent training, bad supervisors who sit in their trucks all shift, anyone who works hard is viewed as a threat and laid off first or not promoted or trained.

Good company, tough market

Thoroughly enjoyed my time with Pioneer. They have a solid management team and treated me wonderfully. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and subsequent massive decline in oil prices, they had to eliminate my position.

What I learned

Pioneer Well Services is a great place to work. I enjoyed 7 years of my life working hard for them. The management was among the best I have ever worked for.

Money is good, Wireline division has poor management.

The wireline division has poor management and makes decisions based on what is best for them personally. These decisions are bad for the company and bad for the people who are out in the field generating the revenue. The only reason people continue to be employed in the wireline division at Pioneer is because the pay is good.

Great people to work with

The oil & gas industry is a up & down field to work in & after 16yrs I was laid off because of the economy. I moved from accounts payable to staff accountant to tax accountant in my 16yrs there.

A typical day at work

Required to be at the shop on time and begin working on any project we have going on in the shop at the time. When jobs call in you would go get the correct tools ready for said job. And get them loaded on a truck and be ready to leave for the job at specified location and always on time
