    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Halliburton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Just get the 3months-1yr experience and start looking for something else. Medical was a catch but getting expensive now

    Cons

    Stay away from the Interwood Houston district. Management is going to be against you if you call them out on any safety issues. Instead of concentrating on the job, they make you drive to another rig to pick tools/equipment to use for the job, instead of using a hotshot truck. Their job description is a fraud. Don't work here, they never seem to keep employees due to poor Coordinators/Management They reject... overtime but still wants you to work overtime For some reason, they tend to miss paychecks a lot. You can't change from MWD to DD if you want to (a colleague told me they favor the whites more in crossing over to DD than the blacks- Yes, the is Racism too) You get a lot of sleepless than and expect to carry out the job. Coordinators lack communications You don't get parts for the jobs on time They cut bonus and paychecks every 6months They hire a bunch of trainees and expect you to train them without incentives The moment you go against the coordinators, they will find some time to fire you. You work 24/7 but they only pay you 12 hrs for being gone and whatever months the jobs take. You are allowed to charge 13hrs per day being away on the job, anytime over 13hrs they reject it or question you why the overtime. Please, imo stay away. Look elsewhere for oil n gas field experience. Just not the office. This place is where you call the 'Toxic work environment'. No work-life balance, even when at home, you are on call No career growth here. Management can put a thump on your job growth

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good training

    Cons

    Lowest pay of all service companies. Severance pay upon lay-off is absolutely pathetic. 1 wk of pay for every year you’ve been there. Get laid-off at 11 months 28 days....sorry, you only get 1 wk pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it. So many ways to cut costs. Stop treating employees as numbers.
