    Great benefits. Smaller company. Lots of opportunity to advance. Hard work is rewarded.


    Many positions start as open ended contract positions. Lots of overtime is the norm. It's hard to really advance if you're not willing to work extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    Put a max limit on how long you can keep someone a contractor. It creates a negative environment for the contractors, and you're throwing money away.

    Negative Experience


    Had a phone interview for 30 minutes. The interviewer seemed impressed and said she would call back in the next day or two. Never called me back. Never said anything. I hear this is a terrible place to work - so I wasn't taking the interview particularly serious.

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult. The interviewer just talked endlessly about how fast they were growing - I wanted to laugh because oil is less than $50 a barrel now.   Answer Question
