    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

    Customers you meet are comparatively, the best people you could ever work for or with.

    Cons

    Senior Management is disconnected with the people who actually contribute. Local managers are inconsequential in securing or retaining future business, yet are rewarded as if they contributed. Local management is needed and play an important role, however sales positions are not valued and are viewed as "non contributing" and are not rewarded in the cash bonus or stock award structure.

    Advice to Management

    They under pay based on like positions in other companies, the managers are paid bonuses while the people who actually sell the work get nothing, the people who need it the least benefit the most.
