    Pros

    Company will typically pay very well and give out good benefits. Vehicles and gas cards are provided for all supervisor positions.

    As with all service companies, when oil prices fall, jobs become very unstable. Some supervisors are very hard to work for but that is to be expected.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. The pay and the time off are definite perks of the job, but the skills learned are also very valuable.

    Cons

    The oil and natural gas industry is a very volatile industry to work in. Job security is not always guaranteed.

    Try to keep policies a little more constant. One of the most difficult parts of the job is simply trying to keep track of what you'll get in trouble for.
