Which company would you work for in North Dakota in the Bakken oil patch , Driving ? work over?...
I am being offered several driving jobs in the Stanley area , and I am not sure who to hook up with for the best Bad Lands Training, I like you worked the fields in 80-82 and went on to start my own buisness, but the economy has put me back in the work force again and ND is Hirring....
I've not worked the Bakken and thus can't tell you much about who's best (or worst) to work for...except this: When it comes to the oilpatch, the best job you can get is with the first guy that will hire you. Once you're working, if that employer is a real pain, hey, from driving to workover roughneck work, hands talk.
My more recent endeavors (patch-wise) were in Colorado, and with a Colorado-only boss, so when it comes to North Dakota....
But heck, if you've got several offers, trust your gut. I know that works--but have never had that luxury (of being able to pick from several).
When it comes to driving, one good benchmark is always to check out their equipment. I personally favor heavily reinforced International tractors over any others for offroad work; others like Petes or even Macks....
Going back to the 80s for a moment: I found out enough about Halliburton the night before I interviewed to let me give enough of the right answers to get hired...did that by talking to a lady driver who happened to be washing her truck in the steam bay at their Glendive yard. If you can possibly get to Stanley and actually sniff around for even a day or so, bet you could get a pretty good feel for who are the big dogs and who are just...dogs.
Best of luck in your decision making.
