Trainee plant operator (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie – January 15, 2018
I worked in Grande Prairie along Highway 40 at one of Secure Energy facilities between 2014 t0 2015.They had this new unit which we were being trained on as a team.Team selection was ridiculous.Some team members had no idea was going on..and a result,with many other factors and reasons...some people left..the good ones laid off..Safety was questionable at the plant....
Good experience from the expatriates while working on state of the art technology
Long hours..heavy traffic to work..dangerous driving and low regard for safety at work

Fast pace work environment. This company just wants more from its employees well they give you less. You can have 2 - 4 years experience and you will be making the same hourly wage as the new guy your training. There are zero incentives. Management is a joke. The managers and leads get those positions because of who they know not what they know. Overall if this is your first oil patch job take it for 6 - 12 months and learn what you can then move on. There are to many good paying jobs in North Dakota so there is no reason to work for a cheap, cutthroat company like this.
7 on 7 off schedule
No overtime, No advancement, No incentives, Very cheap company

Secure is a good place to work if you can / do work. There is a lot to know and lots of valves and pumps that you have to know what they do. You work 12 hours a day min but we work 1 week on 1 week off so you get a good balance with personal life especially if you don't live in North Dakota. We have 2 leads with a combined life of 44 years. You get very dirty on a daily basis and I walk/run on average 13000 Steps a day and around 300 flights of stairs a week. Pros and CONs good pay however they took away our OT with inventive scheduling we work 7 12 hour days and get 4 hours of OT instead of 44 hours we should. Ok benefits. Life insurance. Working with things that a dangerous such as H2S, Benzene and oil slop

Business is booming and has been because they handle production water and waste. Expect them to continue taking from employees. We've experienced cuts in pay, in benefits, poor schedule, overtime taken away, no advancement, poor management, no bonuses, no housing although some guys are grandfathered in and do get it. A greedy company with no ethical standards, low moral, high turnover.
hotdogs always on the roller, get to take our guns to work
It's nice to get every other week off. You work 84 hours Wed- Tuesday with only 8 hours of that being overtime. As they have your start week in the middle of their pay week. There is no 401K. No room for advancement. Management likes to hire friends. There is no pay raises, no yearly reviews.

I miss working for Secure Energy services, They had great management, IT team was fantastic, employees were like a family. I couldn't of asked for a better company. Unfortunately the industry was the only down fall for them. I would go back any day!
ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) – Williston – September 29, 2015
Management and co-workers are great to work with. Great environment. They provide classes for professional advancement. Salaries are competitive, they like to hire from within and give opportunities to advance within the company.
1/2 paid fitness benefits, in-office gym, fun atmosphere, opportunity to advance
Lead Facility Administrator (Former Employee) – Keene, ND – June 5, 2015
Secure Energy Services is a Canadian based company that is highly professional, employee oriented and truly does what it takes to keep the customer base that it has obtained stable and concrete.
Since we were in the oil industry our days were very high volume; sometimes processing truck tickets for 150 trucks within a 24 hour period. This included verifying all wells and all the information provided by the driver, information that was inaccurate would need to be re-verified through the State of ND. Once verified and accurate this information was entered into the database used for billing purposes.
Management was wonderful; I had the opportunity to visit an Administrative conference in Calgary, Canada where the owners each gave presentations of their own; disclosing information on how Secure Energy began and where there were going in the future...
I worked with some of the greatest people in the industry; the most rewarding was the professionalism each of my co-workers conveyed to each and everyone.
I did not consider anything hard about my position; it was a nice challenge for an industry that I knew nothing about.
The most enjoyable part about the job was going to work everyday and learning something new...
Annual 10% bonus depending on how well the Company did.
The dangerous drive as it was a great distance and not so well developed roads.
