    "Don't get shorted on MWD Pay decreases"

    • Comp & Benefits
    Former Employee - MWD Field Engineer in Oklahoma City, OK
    Former Employee - MWD Field Engineer in Oklahoma City, OK

    I worked at Halliburton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Can break into oil and gas
    *Have good people in OKC office and most other offices.

    Cons

    *Drastically reduced MWD pay over the last 18 months.
    *MWD pay is no longer competitive vs other companies
    *Don't work offshore. They pay the same as land jobs but you do a lot more work and there's more stress.
    *Don't work for the Houston office. They treat their MWD's poorly. Most other offices are pretty good to their MWDs

    Advice for potential MWDs looking for work with any employer, not just Halliburton:

    You work 90-100 hours a week and are often gone weeks at a time. You are on all 24 hours a day. I don't mind that, but you need to be compensated for it. Look around at several companies and do not accept low ball offers or reduced pay. Before you hire on, thoroughly understand pay and total pay (per diem, salary, vehicle allowance, tool bonus, hourly pay, overtime hourly pay etc). Ask questions - ask what the pay structure is and how raises work. Find out what has to be done to earn a raise.
    A competent MWD should be making at least $10-11k a month after 6 months (based on 30 day work month) and experienced hands command $13-16k a month (based on 30 day work month, vehicle, salary, hourly, per diem etc). Know what the market pays! look around!

    I have no comments on or advice for senior management as I never worked with those areas.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good money if your willing to work a great deal of hours.

    Cons

    Low hourly pay but pretty much work all the hours you can stand. 90-120 hrs a week.

    Advice to Management

    A housing allowance would allow your more dedicated employees the opportunity to relocate locally.
