i herd this oil rigers talkin bout that they dont hire local people from the sorounding towns cause people only work for a month then quit after first check i think that is all bs there suppose to be giving local people jobs helping people not turning them down cause one or two people quit wats up with that so many people apply at riggs and never get called you see trucks from loiusiana,florida,montana,ther not helping people from around here they should just move out of texas cause part of all the oil fields being here is to also give local people jobs they hire few people from here but you look at the majority of oil riggers from out of state i mean the applications are stupid i no for a fact everyone in oil riggs dont have degree or they wouldnt be working see lot of oil rigg people that are also racist yall just stop people dont take to kind of that around her......got so much to say ..........n the people they bring from out of town are some real crackheads,cokeheads,potheads, ect dont no how they keep there jobs,,,maybe its cause the one thats in charge is just like them thats why lots of accidents happen suppose to be drug free work place at all oil fields.......

Some jobs require some expertise. Where do we find engineers, geologists, and consultants around here?
We can only drive trucks, so that's what we get.
Other lower jobs include working 12 hours 7 days a week,do we have interested young people? Maybe not.

If you don't have a oilfield job in this rich eagle ford shale, it's because you can't pass a drug test or your too lazy to go out and find one. This oil boom opened up many opportunities for these small towns folks. Theres no excuse for you not having a job. I can understand if you ladies are struggling to find a place in the oilfield, but it's there.
So true

There are plenty of local ppl working in the oil Riggs. You just gotta look around but on the other hand plenty of ppl aren't willing to move around just in case the job moves.to another town , city, or state

Well went they hire locals then you can talk not everyone is either on probation or fresh out prison who has to work like a dog crystal people n sorounding people do need jobs just cause one two people quit doesn't mean you have to hire people from out of state n shouldn't be so quick to judge locals

Are u stupid the boss in oil rigs is either a pot head or crack head or ect so they shouldn't care about anyone passing drug test cause they problem can't pass test them self they should just hire and stop using this as excuse why they dot hire

Companies are willing to train and let people work their way up. The problem is there are few people that are truly willing to put in a hard days work, especially the younger generation. They feel as thought they are entitled to something instead of earning it. Drug testing is mandatory, any job on a rig is considered high risk. Accountability, if you aren't gonna show up to work then you aren't gonna have a job. They are reluctant to hire people with a record because you have shown a lack in making good judgement in the past so why would a company invest in people who are going to most likely disappoint them?
