    Pros

    Free shaves and haircuts every two weeks on payday!

    Cons

    They pay you nothing out of their own account. the real people who put into your check are the oilfield companies you contract to do the job for. you may turn in hours for driving and yard time , but good luck in getting a percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the piracy. hope y'all go where you need to go , but Real Soon!

    I worked at Basic Energy Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They force you to go job to job illegal so they can't turn a job down so they make revenue in this tuff oil market which pass overtime to you.

    Will have you drive on the road using off duty wellsite so you always have hours to catch other jobs on or they will make you two or three black USB chips to make yours legal regardless of what you work

    They feed you 2-3 times a day and we all usually order steak since it isn't our money

    Cons

    On call 24/7
    Took away company 401k match
    Took away job bonuses
    Took away yard revenue bonus
    Took away 40 hour guarantee

    Regardless if you have very many hours your insurance will be deducted leaving you little or no paycheck

    Advice to Management

    When someone has a wreck they will be in a lawsuit and driver will also be sued due to the falsification of dot laws

    Pros

    Good health benefits
    Its a paycheck

    Cons

    Lack of common goals, lack of recognition of good,key employees.

    Advice to Management

    With your buyouts of us smaller companies, you need to develop a sense of "unity" and common goals. Seems like we are loosing customers, is it do to field operations or the upper level lack of communication ?
