Upper Management is horrible
Accounts Payables Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 26, 2018
Sandbox was bought out by US Silica. US Silica starting firing a lot of the upper management and bringing in their own people. Once the new people came in people like me had to train the new manager and was then fired because I was a threat.

Low pay for owner operators
Owner Operator Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Karnes City, TXOctober 18, 2018
I gave them a try and lost money in the process. They expect you to dead head long distances for a load (200 Miles) and cannot tell you where you should expect to get most of your loads. As an O/O it’s imperitive to know where the loads are coming from on a regular basis so we can cut down on fuel expenses and dead head. This was unacceptable to me so I moved on to greener pastures. Maybe it’s better for company drivers?

Just awful
Driver (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKOctober 6, 2018
Had to file claims with department of labor to get my $8000 from them. Awful company to work for. I would suggest being broke and poor instead of working for sandbox

Good working environment, but possibly ending soon
Yard Worker/ Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Morgantown, WVOctober 3, 2018
Work night shift, (7:00PM- 7:30AM), workload fluctuates, depending on Manager and Field Coordinator needs.
Field is in the Oil/ Gas Industry, supporting, supporting Fracking process. Company is getting ready to close in this area.
Although, I enjoy the work, and my team members, I am forced for personal reasons, to seek work elsewhere.
Pros
Close to home, short drive
Cons
Company Stability, possible closure in the near future

Great work environment and fun to be
Yardhand (Current Employee) –  Dilley, TXSeptember 6, 2018
This job is a great job. I learned something new everyday. It’s a hands on, outside job. Love being outside and doing new things. It’s very relaxed and slow-pace for people who like to take they’re time

Great Company, Great Pay, Real Team Environment
Driver (Current Employee) –  Waverly, NYSeptember 3, 2018
Honestly a great place to work, Field Coordinators are very helpful when it comes to learning the process. Management is supportive and understanding, they invest in their employees with training. Always seem to promote from within. Safety driven company and is driven down from upper management.
Very decent salary and home every night. All new equipment, very well maintained.
Pros
Good management, great pay, home every night
Cons
Took away 40 Hour Guarantee, Clean Shave Policy

Corporate makes drivers pay for their mistakes
Driver (Former Employee) –  Kenedy, TXAugust 11, 2018
Guaranteed pay was eliminated and replaced with a bonus that drivers never received even though they met the the requirements. Expected/required to wait for a load without compensation. It appears that the company is in a downward spiral. New hires would last 1-3 days because of false promises. Look elsewhere!!!
Pros
Easy work when available
Cons
Culture of disinformation and no respect/appreciation for drivers.

it has its moments
Lead operater (Former Employee) –  oil fieldJuly 27, 2018
Started off being a good place, then it went south. Us that started with Sandbox from the beginning profited 1 million dollars in OK. Now since they got rid of all of us and scrambled positions it will never do that again.

Great hard working people
Safety Trainer/Admin (Former Employee) –  Greeley, COJuly 19, 2018
I really enjoyed working at SandBox, and only left because of a new opportunity that I couldn't pass on.

The business is relatively simple, load sand and take to well site, repeat. But like anything, there are always challenges and twists, and the management team sincerely puts in every effort to keep those things from effecting the employees in the field.

The field staff is comprised of interesting and hard working people, and the office folks are passionate and innovative. The culture is truly that of a family, and there is a monthly potluck that is really fun. If you come in and do your job as best you can, you will do well and have a great new group of people to share your work life with.
Pros
Family culture, work-life balance, relaxed environment
Cons
Would have liked a little more challenge, growth opportunity is slow

Young immature management. With minimal trucking experience.
Sand Hauler (Former Employee) –  Waverly, NYJuly 17, 2018
The waverly, ny branch is run by young immature paycheck collectors.. With minimal trucking experience. They're more concerned with puffing their chests out then actually being productive. They constantly look for the smallest thing to terminate employees. Which leads to a huge revolving door. Coordinators cant even manage to show up on weekends for an hour for shift change. They expect drivers to drive trucks with the entire dash lit up like a Christmas tree. Very cut throat management. Don't even think about trying to go third party. If they catch wind of it they will contact that third party and tell them not to hire you. Regardless if you take the proper avenues to go third party. If you like smoke blowers this is your company. Oh yea as of 07/17/18 they took the 40 hour a week guarantee away from the sand haulers. Company is joke! If your looking to haul a box I'd recommend looking into haliburton or Aeros west.
Pros
Home everyday. That's it..
Cons
To many to list..

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Greeley, COJuly 8, 2018
The job and operating the forklift was fun, yet when it came to the managment and supervisors it felt like they didnt care what you as an employee did to keep things going in full operations. So in my opinion, that place is only good for money, management is horrible, some of the leads are pretty bad as well, lazy, they want to sleep all the time and very unsafe.
Pros
No pros. Just cons.
Cons
no over time pay, just flat rate.paid almost $400 a month for benefits

Great earnings, home everyday
Driver (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 4, 2018
You can make some great earnings when things are running well in the field. There will be slow days, but overall it is a decent driving job. Their healthcare is not very good, but staying local made the job worth it.
Pros
Local, Decent pay rate
Cons
Lots of hours, some low paying days

Accounts Payable Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 2, 2018
Great place to work. Hires employees with little experience allowing transition to new fields. Management is great and allows you to cross train in new departments to learn additional skills

They don’t value bread winners. No money.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Enid, OKJune 6, 2018
Typical corporate scam artists. They don’t value the drivers who bring in all the money. You don’t get paid anything close to a living wage but management and investors are making hand over fist. Best to stay away. Should be a crime what they pay drivers.
Pros
None
Cons

This place is a joke.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Greeley, COMay 12, 2018
I left 1 star because I couldn't leave no star. The pay is great for the first week or two to keep you coming back. The management does not operate like an oilfield company. They think appearance is more important than productivity.
