After my longtime colleague left, he was replaced by a new employee who lasted there only a month! This would be somehow acceptable if it was a unique case, but shortly after that another new employee left who did not stay much longer. I am sure... — read more
If you are a Halliburton emoloyee, did you get your email to submit your vaccination card today? Hearing an email came out instructing employees to submit their cards to a third party for "verification".
Anyone have any inside info on if Halliburton is planning to mandate the vaccine? With TX banning mandates by any entity, not sure how they could. Since a large part of their business is in TX they can't really do it for one location but not others... — read more
I really appreciate the new young employees and I think there are great people among them who have great ideas. Unfortunately, it seems to me that they are exceptions now. Most young people, like my new colleague, do not want to learn and develop new... — read more
This is not news, it’s their way of doing business in general
I’ve worked hard and feel like I’m underpaid for the job I’m doing and lately I’ve been thinking about asking for a raise. I know a person who asked for a raise and actually got a raise, but I also know a person who asked for a raise and it turned... — read more
I would like to get a promotion but it seems better to forget about it. I worked hard to achieve that, but in vain. The rules for how to get a promotion are fuzzy and I feel left to my own devices in finding a way to achieve my career goals. How... — read more
So will Halliburton bow to Biden's EO for all employers with over 100 employees to mandate the vaccine? Considering an executive order only applies to the executive branch and is not law, private employers would only voluntarily comply. It will... — read more
Where did all the depts and people go from Carrollton, Texas? So sad they closed the facility.
While there is all this talk about Halliburton looking for cheap labor, I found out that new hire makes more than I do. That person with little to no experience in the industry was offered more than me even though I have been in this company for... — read more
Is it really necessary to micromanage so many employees who have been in this company for years and who have always done their job well? It is no longer a matter of ego, but such an approach began to bother me in doing my job. Was the ultimate goal... — read more
I don't know how it came about, it seems like it wasn't like that before, but now there are five slackers here for every hard worker? I understand, people have lost motivation and are doing only minimally what is expected of them, but the problem is... — read more
Mark Richard is the kiss of death for Halliburton. He is a micro manager who is running the place into the ground. He hates being questioned and managers under him are required to stroke his ego on the daily. Absolutely ridiculous. He will be the... — read more
It's a joke how little senior management pays attention to the rapidly growing turnover and all the experience and institutional knowledge we're losing through it. That's something that can't be replaced by just adding another warm body into the mix... — read more
Keep up the great work!!! I have never been busier in my decade long run in the TX oilfield. Averaging well over 100 hrs a week . It’s Just too bad I now work for a competitor that doesn’t turn DP into fence posts.
With cases in Houston shooting through the roof why no calls from HAL to return to a WFH model? All we get are emails from Summer Condarco saying Vaccines are the ONLY way to stay safe.
So....is this gonna happen or what?
RUN. Run as quickly and as far as you can. You'll thank me later.
Email came out today with info on the survey results. They claimed numerous times the survey was anonymous, however, the email states "we learned much of our office based employees are vaccinated". If the survey is anonymous, how do they know what... — read more
It's obvious by now that Halliburton is done with north america so my question is what sort of timeframe do you think they have to move out of dodge? I hunkered down during the pandemic bit now I'm looking for jobs again and once I snap a decent... — read more
The vaccine survey request is NOT REQUIRED. That terminology is used only to persuade you to comply. Again, IT IS NOT REQUIRED. Having a vaccine is not a requirement of your job! You DO NOT have to answer the survey.
I have heard such comments many times, that our processes are very antiquated, which is the absolute truth. Why is it like that? Why does Halliburton want to be a dinosaur company? Is it so difficult or impossible to make positive changes in this... — read more
The Halliburton Communications email corporate sent out today was ominous. Next week everyone gets surveyed and then afterwards comes the company-wide vax mandate regardless of the results.

Does it seem to you that more people are leaving here than have been laid off? Too many people I know have left lately. My impression is that there has never been a bigger exodus from here. When someone mentioned that they heard rumor about layoffs... — read more
How long will it take to receive your 401k/retirement plan from Halliburton after leaving?
So I'm curious to know what any "still standing" employees think of the recent remote work policy and why the the sudden reversal on dress code. Thoughts?
I know, the reasons are multiple, but it’s really shocking to me that the company isn’t even trying to keep at least young talented people. It should try to keep all skilled employees, but it is one of the few companies that does nothing to prevent... — read more
What’s up with the Longview yard? I see a lot of trucks being moved out
Are there any wireline guys out of Alavrado from the Kilgore yard? I hear you guys are busy in Louisiana…you ever think the Kilgore yard will open back up?
That held a place of honor in the foyer of the now-closed Belleaire 'campus'? I thought only Kim Jon Un, the North Korean leader had an ego that big? Perhaps Jeffery had it placed in the executive washroom?
Where is Halliburton going to come up with the money to pay for focal point? Is Jeffie going to open up his purse strings? The only way I see freeing up money is to reduce headcount and use that bucket to give the remaining leftover employees a... — read more
I came to the forum to see if there were any new juicy rumors. Turns out there isn't, but I was interested in someone's post about Halliburton having nothing to offer that second or third tier oil field services company doesn't already offer, even... — read more
In contrast, the Layoff.com site for the Fortune 100 company I went to work for after Halliburton is always busy with angry and anguished posts. With good reason, I might add. Count your blessings.
Maybe the shareholders realize how bad it looks for a company to reward a CEO who laid off thousands of employees (who do the actual work) during a pandemic? Jeff Miller sure doesn't as he is blinded by greed. Article is below. May 20... — read more
What's happening in Sperry Tech Singapore?
Predictions for the second quarter are not at all optimistic. Bad results = cuts. Do you think there will be big cuts before the second quarter results are announced? Some have already started speculating that the cuts will be huge, but these are... — read more
