Excellent Training Horrible Workplace

Field Engineer (Former Employee) Kilgore, TX

ProsThe pay is good with per diem etc. and benefits package

Excellent training if you can make it through their military regimen

ConsPay does not reflect long hours nor competency they squeeze anything and everything out of you...

You will never have quality nor a work life balance as long as you work here...

They own your life when your there. You can never give enough. The first couple of months you think its attitude..., but you begin to realize your a pon. A means for them to make more money. In fact in training I was told they hire engineers so field mistakes could be solved by laying blame. Their is no need for engineers out their. Everything can be accomplished form base and in some locations it has been tested...

They say you have rotation of days off lol... they will call you in...trust me...

They preach one thing about safety and do another... They show they don't care...

Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up. No one should ever have the mindset live to work, but work to live. Make the work surroundings more enjoyable. Family always comes first. If my were preparing to have a baby understand I am going home to see my wife and new child. If my wife or family member is sent to the ER I am leaving the field to meet them. I was told by a manager that my family needs to understand the requirements of a field engineer. Missing my baby being born and my wife being sent to the ER are not sufficient excuses for leaving work. Grow some integrity and morals...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Halliburton


    Pros: Working with hard-working individuals Superior Technology Decent employee benefits and 401K options High… Cons: Horrible Pay 100+ Hour work weeks Cut-throat management and employees Excessive Micromanaging Say "Goodby" to your personal life Halliburton comes first, you finish a distant second Promotions are awarded based… Advice to Senior Management: The employees have to be treated better. We are all physically and emotionally drained from the work-load you are throwing us into. Hire more… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
