Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

No one wants to do 12 hour shifts constantly

I'm totally exhausted. For months now, I have had the feeling that I am just constantly working. I have never been more overworked and under more stress.
People here work 12 hours shifts for days. No wonder people are leaving more than ever.
Who can stand such pressure? Only those who have to and the ones who have no other option.

This is a constant gripe…oil and gas is a up and down swing of over working folks then laying them off..get out before that’s all your resume has on it because it’s much harder to move to another industry once that’s all your 20 year resume reads

Grinding plants are in that exact situation. Plant manager isn’t making that call, it’s been passed down from the suits in Houston. They’ve been told that plants have to “prove we need people” by scheduling 60hrs a week to the poor souls that are left on the skeleton crews. In the mean time they have offered to allow the plants to hire temps. Because temps are going to put up with the cr---y hiring process.

I agree, and also the little puppy that follows him around makes it that much worse.

You're calling out hard working individuals working 12 hour days, non stop, over holiday weekends, time away from their families, etc., and then call them peons?!? What a pos you are. You're probably that awful plant manager mentioned below, or his puppy, and if so, referring to your hard working people as "peons" is what makes you a extra special pos. If you're not, well, then you still just suck as a person, and I would be willing to bet you dont work a tenth as hard as these people.

Wondering what plant is being discussed here, I mean, just going off of the reactions to these posts, someone mentioned LMC, it got one up vote. Someone mentioned Spring, and it got 5.

I left due to incompetent management. Just got tired of the good old boy network. I'm out the Oil and Gas industry now and couldn't be happier. I would recommend Halliburton for people right out of college and then leave once you get some experience. it's not the place to work for experienced people. There are much better opportunities for those folks elsewhere.

OP, I have my suspicions which plant you work at, and if so, your work conditions are 100% due to the terrible plant manager in charge there and his awful decisions when it comes to personnel and filling certain roles, like PM&L mgr just as an example. He would be much better suited as a used car salesman. Working your people 12 hours a day as a rule instead of the exception, working your people over weekends and holidays, again, as a rule instead of the exception points directly to an incompetent plant manager that has no idea how to manage his resources properly, or treat his employees, and has no idea how to run a plant. It’s a shame to hear how you’re being treated and I’m sorry to hear your frustration. Hopefully it gets better soon.

The bottom line: you are nothing more than an H number to HAL. They treat employees like disposable printer cartridges, use them up and throw em in the trash. Hire ya and cut ya at first sign of any slowdown. Trust me, their is life after HAL! I am living proof of that….

Oh I understand you. One of the reasons why I left a few months ago. Over worked and the pay ain’t worth it
