    Current Employee - Logging Geologist III in Odessa, TX

    I have been working at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The money is great. It is not a salary gig and if you work more you make more. You get paid more for quality work and dinged for errors. The quality bonus is not huge, but it is noticeable in the paycheck and that will make you extra cautious. I have never had an issue getting time off that i requested, though theoretically there could be problems. Work always comes first.

    There is lots of opportunity to travel and in between wells is a great time to do it. The company offers and most take advantage of the Company house which is a flat 150 from your paycheck and you just stay in the company house during your time off. Sometimes its crowded and can get a bit frat like, but most of the time you will have it to yourself or with one other person. Oil field rents are in the 900-1000 dollar range so this is basically an extra 850 in your pocket a month. It is very easy to save and pay off debt living like this. My student loans were done in 8 months. You also occasionally get larger bonuses (500 dollars+) for things like the holidays and promotions which happen regularly.

    You very quickly build up a network of oilfield contacts and develop a reputation based on how well you work. This can be helpful for future employment. It is a team exercise and you want to contribute what you can and learn as much about operations as possible.

    Cons

    You get paid more if you work more, but you don't control your own destiny in this. Usually there is plenty of work to go around but sometimes you will work for a full month and others you may only have a few days a month. Spending sprees are not wise.

    There is no real work life balance. Your life is the job and it can be all consuming if you let it. Be sure to take advantage of time off and be sure to get off the rig at least once a week. Burnout can happen if you are not careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing a great job. Field conditions have improved dramatically in the last year. I think it would be helpful to have formal feedback and log review sessions once a month for new loggers for their first three months and then every three months after that for experienced personnel. Even if its done by phone or e-mail it would help in professional development. Field trainers used to do this. I'd also like to see a 401k.
