    I have been working at Patterson-UTI Drilling full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Time off. 2 weeks on 2 weeks off schedule.

    Cons

    Those two weeks you are on you basically work the whole time youre there. Hard work in the weather, cold, hot, rain, sleet. Everything. Not for the faint of heart. However, can be rewarding knowing you can do something few of your friends and family could.
