    I worked at Alan Ritchey full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The most awesome people i've ever worked with from my co-workers to the management.

    Cons

    It was just a seasonal position and ended to soon.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you so much for the great opportunity to work for your company.

    Pros

    Ability to perform job with minimal supervision. The actual work is not labor intensive. Local driving with daily home time.

    Cons

    Agriculture position means no overtime. Insurance for a family is practically unaffordable. Also because of it being an agricultural position it is seasonal work.

    Advice to Management

    Better mapping systems, overtime pay, and insurance should be more affordable. The insurance is the elephant in the room, other that that, great job.

    Pros

    The management crew that ran the Clackamas Annex (Portland Metro area) were very pleasant to work for! They cared, they made changes happen when needed, they put faith in their shift supervisors and gave them a chance to shine through their work. I was promoted to shift supervisor simply after doing what I felt was just common sense. Even as a seasonal employee, they still took time to recognize the people that stood out. It was a fun experience, and will be sure to come back again next year if the contract opportunity returns. Thank you Dan, Dave, and Ron! You were a great example of what every company should look for in a manager! You made work fun, cared about every person that walked through the door, and appreciated every effort each person put forth! I sincerely hope that if Alan Ritchey, Inc. gets the Portland contract back again next season, that you three come back too!

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Bring Dan, Dave, and Ron back to Portland, Oregon again next year!!

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the system you have going now.

    Pros

    The employees are amazing. They keep the company running in spite of the best efforts of the board. They have decent facilities and potential.

    Cons

    The board is all family. They hire consultants from time to time but fire said consultants in mid stroke when the cuts affect family. There is no clear objective at any given time. They continue to run the same tired plays et nauseum.

    Advice to Management

    Mail is dead. Freight is cheap. You will not be able to dig yourself out of this hole that you dug for yourselves. Hire someone who knows the business and be clear as to what you want them to do.

    I worked at Alan Ritchey full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The compensation coincided with the yearly increase in inflation.The company had very good benefits.The percentage of promotion in my job title was limited.

    Cons

    The corporate company was located in texas.Plant was in mass.The corporate heads rarely visited our location. When they did visit they rarely asked us about the job.

    Advice to Management

    I felt that we had a lot of input that went unheard because of the distance between our plant and corporate.

    I worked at Alan Ritchey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met a few good men! They'll rent you a fema trailer if your single an needing a place to live! They offer a good sign on if you can make it that long! Since there's no real management or time clocks to punch you can work as desired! There in such dire need of professional wheel holders you can pretty much work whenever you need to starting at what ever time you feel suites your schedule! They even pay you on a con data if you don't have a bank or credit union!

    Cons

    Long hours = little pay there structured pay is a similar structure to the big oil hauling outfits like Sunoco marathon plains by the loaded mile and 25 a reject! Due to being a third party hauler there work will float in certain areas so don't count on a steady job at one set location or city! You couldn't buy a house close the yard I mean unless you don't mind being gone all the time! If your just breaking out in the oil and gas industry this company might get you the experience you need to move on to better more stable companies that can weather fluctuating oil prices! Remember the closer you are to the wellhead the better odds of having a stable consistent check! So if stability is what your after then this wouldn't be one to move with!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the you feed the hands that feed you! Go get you clean hands dirty an see for yourself the true faults within each yard! The high turnover, revolving red door on the floor should be you number one priority! Don't make excuses, get real results based on numbers! Men lie, numbers don't! Stability, stability, stabilty, consistency, consistency, consistency!
