  3. Overall a good experience

    Former Intern - Mechanical Engineering Intern in Odessa, TX
    Former Intern - Mechanical Engineering Intern in Odessa, TX

    I worked at Key Energy Services as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    All the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly.
    I was given everything I needed to work effectively
    Payed for my accommodation for the whole summer)
    Didn't micromanage and weren't strict as long as you get your work done.
    Would let people leave early on Fridays and allowed you to work overtime if you wanted

    Cons

    Definite lack of communication between different areas (HR, management, shop workers etc.)
    I talked to people that were frustrated because they felt their opinions and insight were not being valued.
    Granted the KTC facility is fairly new and there is a struggle to keep enough workers (typical for Midland / Odessa) a lot of effort was spent putting out fires and not chipping away at long term underlying issues

    Pros

    If you’re hungry for some horrible pay, an unpredictable work schedule, and dishonest managers it’s a great place. There are so many oil companies that pay better and treat their employees well here in Colorado so don’t waste your time working here.

    Cons

    Pay
    Management
    Lack of work
    Shady Bosses
    No promotions only demotions
    No bonuses

    Pros

    The work is easy your home everyday and the employees are helpful to new guys. The benefits are great and they understand you have a life and family outside of the job and they're willing to work with your personal situations

    Cons

    The pay could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More money please

    I have been working at Key Energy Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work with great people, have a great boss, pay is decent, occasional bonuses, flexible schedule

    Cons

    High turn over mostly due to lay offs when management has made poor financial decisions and has to cut costs... employees are usually the first to go... continuous change to bonus structure (when we get one).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to value the employees more, remember they are the ones who get the bills paid and make you your paychecks. Also when you are implementing new policy stick with it for longer than two years before trying something different and turning employees world upside down again... Key has become a bit like a roller coast in the last several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All key yards should in force the same rules and polices throughout, no exceptions.
    Give raises to employees that demonstrate skills and perform well, not the employees who talk a good game and use the work of others as there own.

    Unprofessional Job

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Key Energy Services

    Pros

    The only thing I liked about the job was being off at 11:30 am every other Friday but the rest is history.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work atmosphere. Management talks to you crazy and the trainer doesn't like to answer questions. I give it less than a week before you place a complaint against her and what will happen? Nothing. The guy manager will take up for her and get annoyed you are complaining. Management is not involved with the employees only time they are is during 5*10 minute company meetings. I hope they hire a whole new staff...very big turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be professional..need structure and need to be investigated for discrimination.
