    Weatherford sucks in the permian. I've heard that from many customers we work for.

    Do you know as far as hours what kinda hours theyre getting?

    Im just trying to make more money. Where i frac now the hourly pay is only 15. And they split our week with the 15 n 6 rotation.
    Weatherford does the same but they offered me more hourly per diem and daily bonuses

    I know quite a few Weatherford employeees, and they're all pretty happy. As a company, they're having some major issues and they're very highly leveraged financially, but their frac guys are still working a lot right now in West Texas/Eastern New Mexico.

    On the other hand, they laid off their ENTIRE frac division in North Dakota in one day earlier this year (when oil prices were still 100+/barrel) so who knows what might happen.

    If you're only making 15/hour now, I'd say so for it and make the switch to Weatherford. Give it a shot, see how you like the company, it it works out, great! If not, oh well, go down the street and get another job with someone else.

    I worked for them for 3 years. The first group of management was great, but they came in though in Sept 2013 and fired all management then it went down hill. Went through DMs pretty quick. The supervisor over their "blue" crew which was the better crew left recently to another company and many of the better hands left behind them. Not sure what its like now. I think they're still working for Devon and Anadarko with just 2 crews. They do just fire people for no reason though. Be careful

    I would just worry about oil being $61 a bbl. But either job is fracking why not switch for more money.
