    I worked at Patterson-UTI Drilling full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of hard work, I mean real hard work! In the snow, rain. Sun and any harsh weather, you are in it working really hard for long hours up to 12.50hrs or even more during rig move.. there’s a lot to learn if you have some good people on your crew! But that is never always the case... you have to be a man and over look a lot of things to survive out there.

    Cons

    Low pay for the hardwork, stay away from home for long period of time usually 2 weeks on.
