It was the KINGWOOD location where they made this threat. Apparently They didn't like the things that were posted about them 2 weeks ago. Look at the post "KINGWOOD WORTHLESS MANAGERS". So those posts were discussed in their manager meeting. One manager vowed to find out who made those posts and ... read more

Did Weatherford block this site from their computers? Or are people to scared to voice their opinions for fear of being fired? Don't see to many comments on here concerning the recent report. Or is everyone in some sort of shock? Or denial? Weird.
