    Pros

    Mud logging is a right of passage. Embrace the suck with a smile on your face because you will eventually be in the office making those big bucks. This company and this job will provide you with an opportunity to learn everything you can about the drilling operation. You'll get to network with geologists and if you take pride in your work, they'll request you and you'll get to follow a rig. Don't be shy, ask them if they want text updates in between reports. Also- keep the directional driller and the company man updated on your oil shows when you're in the target zone.. you're all a team on site. The more you embrace the team mentality, the more fulfilled you'll feel.

    Cons

    Lowest pay in the industry. Floor hands make more than us and they get a rotational schedule!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More conference calls, start doing team conference calls, give the employees assured time off every quarter, and give your good loggers improved situations. If they want to work on a certain rig and they haven't asked for time off in 6 months, why shouldn't they get the rig they want?

    Mudlogger Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email requesting a phone interview 2 days later. 90 minutes after that phone interview I received a job offer email, in which I had 3 days to accept or reject. I originally accepted and was told to purchase a plane ticket to Tulsa, and I would be reimbursed. I did so and attended training. Horizon paid for a motel for you to stay at and you are in a run-down motel room with a roommate and one full size bed and a couch. Day one of the training, you are escorted to a lab for a drug test. Then there is classroom training, safety training and mock rig training when you are in a trailer analyzing samples. This was not difficult at all, but after seeing the trailers you are expected to live and work in, and learning that getting days off was more or less a lottery, I decided not to take the job. I got a ride to the airport and no reimbursement for my flight as promised.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were if I knew what a well logger did, questions about previous employment, why did I want to be a mudlogger, how well did I do in sed/strat. I was asked about my skills in identifying minerals and rocks. Nothing really out of left field.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Salary and working conditions was not high enough to justify relocating to Oklahoma.
