Management in the maintenance department was horrible. Pay was decent, benefits were good but it didn't make up for the poor environment. Even after leaving, the maintenance manager has still been spreading lies and misinformation in an attempt to damage reputations of those who have left and moved on to better employers.
Good company but they seemed to be going down a slow descending hill. They had some really good people and when layoffs hit most of them are gone. The money is a little low for a frac company in my opinion.
The culture there is well below dirt. You will never move up. You will probably never get away from doing maintenance. The crew morale is the worst i have ever seen. There are workers in positions that should never be there.the job security is 0 one day you may have a job the next day who knows. They are constantly laying off their workers if theres no job for a month or so. Constantly take take take and expect more. Over all i will NEVER recommend any person to apply or work at BJ Services.
You never know walking in the door if that's the day they will lay u off . The commuter employees are favorited over locals . Managers are useless field sups are on a constant power trip the supervisors are useless all they do is sit in the sup office the crew cabbers are brainwashed some think they are gods gift to frac even with only a couple years under their belt . Drugs are rampant.
equip whole comp
I was at BJ’s for a little over 2 years and have to say they were very positive to work for in the beginning. Management was good and approachable, the people were top notch and we were busy. Then they let go of most of the old Baker Hughes employees and began to drive there employees into the ground. 8 days on 6 days off was your shift but you were looked down on if you did not want to work more than 14 hours a day. I would not recommend going hear if you intend to be happy
Manager says that they expect you to work lots of overtime on you 8 days. Because “you “ get 6 days off to rest. So when shift is at end then they come out and say we are working a 14 or 16 hr day. Not the 10 hrs your hired for. And you are volenTOLD. Which base you will have to work at
my first official camp job was challenging at first but once you've got a routine set it becomes easier, asking questions if your dont know whats what is the best thing especially if you've never gone to camp job before.
BJ offered me a research position in their Tomball Houston research center. Although I did not accept it but was grateful for their offer. my impression was that BJ put a lot of resources to develop new technologies.
