Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

New hires come and go

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 there are more such cases.
What's happening? Nobody wants to work here?

WHY would anyone stay after be exposed to the FACT that you have NO future within the company, its id--tic and NEVER-ending 'training" that NEVER rewards, and management that considers you expendable, and does NOT hesitate to make you feel that way.

Halliburton is no more the company of a good career. Just for exposure, yes. Go ahead.
It is just business.
The only valuable thing I have from HAL is the good people and good teammates who left/fire/layoff.

What the previous poster said about the chemistry side is almost exactly my experience on the electrical side. And joining it was the worst decision of my career too. I can't believe the difference between the expectation going in and the experience I had - "lie" is the only way to describe it. What an absolute disaster of a technology group. If you are one of the good people still left, get out. It's so much better elsewhere.

I worked at Halliburton a few years ago……one of the worst decisions of my life. I was hired in to Technology (chemistry) and found almost no real science happening…….it was to science what Taco Bell is to fine cuisine.

Such a shame as I saw so many opportunities to invent & innovate, but Halliburton wanted to do everything on the cheap, using old technology. Or even more depressing…..copying what every other service company was doing in chemistry and then to pretend that we were inventing.

To think I left the 2nd biggest chemical company in the world to help Halliburton innovate….I felt I was sold a huge lie by my then boss. I should have left as soon as I discovered this……

Halliburton is struggling big time trying to find and keep employees. If you have a CDL, you could make a ton more money than what Halliburton would pay.
They're a terrible company to work for. Steer clear of the big red nightmare!

I don't know why there would be people willingly working for Halliburton right now driving trucks for cementing/frac/wireline etc.... With a CDL you could be making over $200K per year driving commercially for many transportation companies due to the supply chain issue. This may not last forever. I would capitalize on it while you can. Your skills are definitely in demand now!

Halliburton could NOT care less IF you (especially a field hand) stay or go.

You are expendable, and they WILL tell that to your face, when management will say, "We can find your replacement on the same park bench where we found you"

There are much better opportunities out there right now than Halliburton, particularly for those early in their careers. Smaller companies are paying more and you are less likely to be a casualty of some ridiculous management decision or inane corporate metric.

How out of touch are you that you cannot know by now there's a worker shortage by now? Whatever the real reason behind it the fact is it's an employee market. Coupled with the fact that Halliburton is a dinosaur to a lot of the younger crowd it's little wonder anyone stays.

The pay is sub-par and Halliburton is still scheduling field employees to start week on Tuesday/Wednesday reducing pay further.
