    I worked at Parker Drilling full-time (More than 3 years)


    The Alaskan side of this company was amazing! They had awesome benefits and were just very good all around. Instead of laying me off they transferred me which is awesome


    The Louisiana side wasn't so good, all the employees said Alaskan were Teal in there jobs and basically tried to run me out of LA. Even though the company transferred so they wouldn't have to lay me off. Especially the driller "porkchop" real POS

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but try to make sure that all the crews are accepting to new people including people from another state, I felt really uncomfortable in LA.

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Parker Drilling.


    Good HR team who seem to really care about the candidates. Welcoming and overall a very good experience. The process went quickly and during the process it was easy to see how the team got along together.


    Was able to negotiate some of what I wanted, but not all.
