Default Anyone work for Halliburton

Hi I was wondering if anyone on here worked for Halliburton or any of the other oil field service companies. I am possibly considering a move to the Casper area and am trying to find some info about what it is like to work for them. If anybody knows anything about them I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

They have excellent benefits!! Depending on what you're doing for them the pay is good but a lot of it comes from the amazing amounts of overtime. If you frac you can work 15-17 hour days for 14 days straight, then 7 off. My husband worked at the sand plant for 6 months till he got fed up with working 14 straight 13 hour days and the pay wasn't that great but frac pays better if you want to be a roughneck. There's a myriad of positions with them but a lot of it is deciding what you're willing to put up with.

I currently live in Missouri. I know the cold will be a shock but i am not afraid to work hard or for that many days straight. I spent 5 years on a custom wheat harvest crew and the most days straight we ever worked was 28. I also spent 3 months in Australia working on a custom cotton picking crew so being away from home and working long hard days should not be too huge of an adjustment compared to someone who has only worked a desk job. I am just thinking it might be a good opportunity to earn some money and get my foot in the door of an industry that I see with a good growth possibility. Any other info anyone can give would be great, I definitely don't want anyone to sugar coat anything. Thanks
