I used to work for Weatherford. I actually enjoyed working for them when we were busy and I made decent money. I left on 1/7/19 because I had the gut feeling layoffs were coming.
I was right. Last week they fired the district manager and laid operators and engineers off, but of course gave the engineers an option to transfer to other districts. This follows them closing down the wireline shop in Liberal, KS.
Typical oilfield. The guys without a degree get screwed first. Can’t say I’m not hoping Weatherford wireline bounces back. I had a lot of fun working for them.
