    I worked at Select Energy Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of hours. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    After years of service.Laid off with no notice! company chose not to even pay owed vacation or personal time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on the micro managing, treat your employees better, and you would have less turn over. And better performance and quality of work from them.

    Pros

    the field supervisors are some of the best that i have ever worked with they are incredibly good at their jobs.

    ability to advance is there

    Cons

    the company is so financially motivated that they lose track of the well being of their employees or just dont care.

    almost always you have to make a job happen on a deadline without the proper tools and equipment.

    obsurd inequality in pay between leaders and hands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your potential leaders like they matter to you and you will have a better work force

    Pros

    They do offer Bereavement , sick time and vacation and a 4% match on 401k , they provide coffee and have restrooms but no toilet paper and that's all the Pro's

    Cons

    Upper management for the Tank Truck divison in East Texas and North Louisiana isn't very credible , don't seem to know what their doing , they ride the success of the employees under them and apparently are not held accountable to anyone , the regional manager for tank trucks side doesn't work 15 hours a week , it would almost be funny if it wasn't so sad AND FORGET GETTING A RAISE , IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN !!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    START OVER WITH NEW MANAGEMENT

    I have been working at Select Energy Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    401k match to 4%, they offer health , vision & dental although it's not that great and they have coffee sometimes

    Cons

    Good ol boy system , entry level experienced locks management , poor pay , very poor wage increases if any at all , no bonuses or incentive , a culture of buck passing and just plain managers that don't care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Much much more oversight of your managers in the tank truck division and if an employee is good enough to keep employed for more than a few years , institute a decent wage increase policy , otherwise fire them , this is why moral is the lowest I've ever seen in any company and this is why Select will never grow to be a major player in anything much less Fortune 500 , in fact the company is most likely on the decline

    I worked at Select Energy Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work life balance was great and flexibility of schedule was also good. Great group of people working there.

    Cons

    The pay there wasn't the greatest in the world. But then again, it's best for a entry level job so that would make sense.

    I worked at Select Energy Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good initial experience into oil and gas field.

    Cons

    Lower management was not aware of the good and widely experienced people they had. As a result they were not open to listen to their frontline people who had experienced proven ideas and concepts from other industries. The frontline managers managed by bullying vs. leading. What was observed.... after training, and gaining some oil and gas field experience in water transfer, good people left the employ of Select Energy. This was caused directly by the methods of the frontline management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better selection of frontline managers...and their consideration and incorporation of the input from your frontline employees.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Horrible communication, poor evaluation system, poor training.
    There is just the "who you know" system instead of if you're qualified. Too many friends in executive positions who don't have a clue how to do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring unqualified managers. Train qualified people not your friends or yes men. Safety and well being of employees is first priority.

    Pros

    There are none this place is unorganized, an managed by the good o'l boy system. Hillbilly racist rednecks

    Cons

    False promises, low wages for experience. Lack of concern for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit do the world a service and get off your 100,000 salaries and head back to McDonalds more like your skill level. And hire someone that knows how to treat people and retain employees. Micky mouse operation is an understatement.
