    I worked at Calfrac Well Services full-time (Less than a year)


    Money and benefits were great. Met lots of really cool people. Lots of travel.


    Oilfield is a lot of up and down, great when it's up everyone making money, bad when it's down, (layoffs). Long hours everyday, no such thing as holidays off, not home much. Hard on a family. Working outside no matter what the weather. Sounds worse than it really is. If your used to oilfield work it's just another day at the office.

    TSIT I (Engineer In Training Year I) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Smithfield, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Calfrac Well Services (Smithfield, PA) in April 2014.


    Applied online, and got a call from a recruiter a couple weeks later. Basic questions about getting to know me (not really interview questions) just a little bit about myself, and what's my idea for the job they were offering me. Got past that and a call about a week later wanting me to go for an onsite interview, I went and it was painless. Basically just told me about the tsit program, and how cold it gets in North Dakota. Pretty much got the job, but decided to take another opportunity. Seems like a good company with a lot of opportunity for travel and seeing different places, which made it my second choice of offers after I graduated with a BS in engineering. Starting pay was noticeably low though. I think after the tsit program (2 years) it would jump up quite a bit.
