    Good stepping stone for someone with no experience

    Will hire with no experience. If you are new to the oilfield you will make pretty good money. You will always have work.


    No truck allowance, No gas card, Low pay rates, Working 300+ days a year. The max you will make is about 120,000

    The money was pretty decent. In line with some other oilfield jobs, you're paid to be away from home; not by the amount of actual work you're doing.


    You're constantly away from home, and won't have much of a social life. A lot of the management seemed inept. No one seemed to really no what was going on.

    Horrible Owner, and Horrible Bosses on the MWD side.

    Apr 3, 2015 - MWD Field Operator in Midland, TX
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    For Directional Drillers, the pay was great, and the Directional Management was awesome. For MWD Field Operators/Engineers/hands, they will hire anyone, so it's easy to get your foot in the door. If you are looking for an introduction to MWD, apply at every company you can, and if no one else will hire you, Leam probably will. Learn the job, and after 2 months, start reapplying at all of the other companies, then jump ship as soon as ANY of them will hire you.


    The owner is infamous for saying 'We can train anyone, even a monkey, to do the MWD job,' and he pays MWD hands accordingly. The MWD pay is the absolute LOWEST in the entire industry. MWD Supervisors, 'coordinators,' almost without exception have less than 6 months experience before they are promoted, which means they know far less than their average employee with 1 year of experience or more. Add that to the fact that they likewise have no prior managerial experience (except maybe a bar or fast food) and the Comedy of Errors never seems to end. Daily/weekly emails with contradicting instructions and consequences are a normal thing. When there is a problem in the field with an MWD tool, the techs call other least, if they want a realistic shot at fixing the problem. Add that style of management with the owner's refusal to take care of long-term maintenance and upgrades of their MWD tools, and Leam has a HUGE problem with MWD tool failures, which translates into continuously losing customers, which then translates into a severe cycle of boom and bust almost completely independent of the price of oil. Leam is known in the rest of the oilfield for 1)it's poor MWD tools, and 2) it's horrible MWD management.
