Should not be in the oil and gas business
Sandhualer (Former Employee) –  South texasJanuary 17, 2019
Where to start I guess the fact that upper management knows nothing about the oilfield but they make these huge salaries and get these huge bonuses and they cause The most problems.They micromanage from Dallas witch again is bad because they do not know the business they love to tell you how to do your job even though they don’t have a clue how to do your job. There is no discipline in the sand fleet with the drivers they do what they want arguing with the supervisors and Dispatchers refusing loads because it’s not a conroe load.Training well let’s just say it is a complete joke the trainers for the most part have been doing sandhualing for six months or less and where poorly trained in the first place themselves and love to toss that around that they are trainers like it makes them a big deal even though they don’t know how to clear a line clug without blowing sand all over the well this is not what should be done on the Energy company’s location for every one to see but this is Stevens Standard operating procedures but that goes back to the discipline factor and lack of situational awarenes.Disparching look I know they mean well but it’s a complete joke the dispatchers are completely clueless on how sandhualing really works they still think they are still in transport dispatching frozen chicken loads and they have 1’200 miles and 4 and half days to get it there sandhualing is the Ultimate of time sensitive loads . Maintenance it is virtually nonexistent there is no regular maintenance program they do maintenance based off what the truck manufacturer recommended  more... and I can’t blame the Mechanics because there are so few of them at any shop they over worked and underpaid and when have so many lazy drivers who refuse to take care of there issued equipment by that I mean they won’t even replace a burned out headlight bulb or change a windshield wiper blades themselves instead they drive out of the way to go in the shop and start screaming and yelling at the mechanics that it’s there job and they’re going to call dallas and report them now keep in mind it would take far less time to just do it yourself but that’s what happens when you hire over the road truck drivers and not experienced oilfield operators then tell over the road truck drivers that there Special now there is some experienced oilfield operators but dallas treats them like garbage while expecting them to carry most of the workload while the inexperienced hands or the hands that have been around for a while but are completely useless get treated like royalty . In closing if you are a experience oil field operator or drillers or a Energy company Looking at Stevens tanker STAY AWAY they lie they try to ripoff the customers they shortchange there hands while blaming the customers for it management only cares about making themselves money and doesn’t care if the business goes under they just back to whatever desk riding job they had on transport side of the house  less

Extremely poor management
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Cresson, TXOctober 5, 2018
Managers are terrible. Everyday it seems like someone was trying to get you fired. The turnover rate there is god awful. They promote people based on the good old boy system,if you know someone that is running something you get put in charge of a bunch of stuff even though your lack of knowledge on the entire oil field is visible and the other employees are way more qualified for that position than the one currently running it.
Pros
7 days off away from that dump
Cons

money is good when you have working equip and active wells
Sand Tanker Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 12, 2018
Management of sand tanker division is the worst I have ever experienced. The money is good IF you have working equipment and the wells are active and you stay busy, otherwise it is terrible in just about every way. Extremely hard to contact dispatch, many times will not answer or will hang up on you, and they never do what they say they will so you have to constantly call and remind them, if you can get ahold of them. No system to keep equipment and documents in working order. poor maintenance or no maintenance is a constant issue, spend more time getting equipment fixed then driving. Very poorly run with little regard to drivers and equipment. Other drivers always complaining about same issues. 30 hired every week, 14 quit every week.
Pros
good money when equipment and wells are running
Cons
terrible management, terrible communication

Training in new field of driving
Tanker Driver (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 3, 2018
In the tanker division, training was beneficial to my truck driver experience. The tanker trailer handles differently from a normal 53', in such a way that it requires years of experience to achieve the proper trailer balance at 70 mph . At stevens tanker division the balance was achieved through proper training techniques.
Pros
the danger of crashes is more apparent while driving
Cons
less drive time

Hard work but the team made the shifts fly by.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  TexasMay 24, 2018
The work was fast paste, chaotic at times, and stressful. That being said, the team would make the best of it. There were always jokes and stories to perk up the environment. The laughter was always the best relief. Being close to the team members and working together was something to look forward to.
Pros
Family, Friends, Feeling accomplished by the end of a shift
Cons
many overtime hours, high expectations for the overloaded amount of work to be done by only a few workers

Great Place that is going to the Top!
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  El Reno, OKMay 16, 2018
The day starts early dispatching, so you need to be ready to go & full of positive energy at 5AM!

Management truly cares about the success of the company, so they are constantly asking questions & offering advice.

The most difficult part is adjusting to all the different personalities and situations you are involved in on a daily basis, but that is also the most rewarding part about the job, figuring out how to make it all fit together!
Pros
Positive Environment, Job Stability
Cons
Long Hours, High Pressure (not a con if you can handle it:)

Productive fast pace environment
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 16, 2018
This is a fast pace environment each and everyday which makes the day go by quickly . You must be able to think outside the box to get the job done at times . Being able to work a seven on seven off schedule is a big plus for me so I can spend time with my family on my week off .
Pros
schedule
Cons
We do not have enough people in dispatch

Great place to be.
Driver Manager/Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Mesquite, TXMay 15, 2018
Stevens Tanker is a fairly new division and once they work through the growing pains it will be a force to be wrecked with. Great opportunities throughout the company. Great place to be.

Great Company / Not Perfect
Driver (Current Employee) –  Stockdale, TXMay 15, 2018
Didn't know anything about working in the oilfield. Stevens was a great company for me to start with and have been here now 2 years. Very happy. A lot of companies recruit in the field and the grass isn't always greener. I've seen many drivers leave based on what a recruiter told them from another company only to come back to Stevens. No company is perfect but Stevens is a place you can have a career and not just a job. They really care about their drivers and safety.
Pros
Work, Hours, Equipment.

Great place to start off and grow with
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 15, 2018
Stevens Tanker is a great place to start in the industry- not just for a driver but for office positions as well and there's always room to grow. Family oriented and family owned. Management is patient and show their appreciation with breakfast/lunch every now and again. Pay and benefits are good. Work place can be fast paced but laid back. Everyone is friendly and always willing to help one another. Again, a great place to start off and grow with!
Pros
Family owned and family oriented
Cons

Not a great company
Night Manager Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Stockdale, TXMay 4, 2018
Typical day work starts very stressful.
Learned that even if you try too be a team player no one would help you.
Management seemed kind of racist. Always making fun of other races. Seemed like the Hispanics were not good enough for administration only for hard labor.

Crooks and idiots that leave you holding the bag.
Frac Sand Driver (Former Employee) –  Stockdale, TXApril 4, 2018
I lost days of work just trying to find out WHO to talk to about expired cab card, ins card, and ifta permit.
Dispatch didn't have a clue.
Had more lost time trying to get a pm done, 2 days, because dispatch didn't have a clue.
Harassing phonecalls from dispatch "trainees" while i was sleeping, on days off, or even unloading. They wanted updates on when I'd be ready for my next load.
Overall, you are set up to fail with faulty equipment and extremely poor, lazy, 'not-my-job' management.
Pros
None
Cons
Run by greed and lazyiness
