Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

Offshore uk

I work for contractor and visit many rigs both offshore & onshore and stood over and watched a division of halliburton baroid dealing with cuttings waste material which is very hard work all round and to me makes the job even harder for the guys as it seems they lack correct equipment moving forward ie lack of investment as they say there is equipment on the market which comptetors have to remove high risks and manual handling these guys body's shall not last no time at all as potential to cause health issues.

I did speak to 1 guy asking if ever job is run like this and his reply was it does not matter what job or rig your on it's more or less the same very hard and after 3 weeks doing this and other dutys not only am I tired but the hole crew.

I felt terrible how these guys can keep up but also the salarys they receive along with day rate whilst offshore.

Surely a large company like baroid hallburton should be taking there workers on and act on these concerns that crews have / pay increase along with day rate would be a good start then look at purchasing equipment that helps to do job correctly you cannot be safe if the investment is not there

Don't work for Baroid abz as I did and what I seen was shambolic from office to offshore pay and laughing offshore day rate poor from top to bottom

Equipment out of date for clients requirments

Ppe provided cheap what a penny pinching company

I have also seen these boys operation offshore and I must agree these supvs and operators are run ragged with out dated equipment no stop operation boys keep going like this then this will lead to early retirement due to health conditions firstly arthritis with no cure.

Totally shocked by way boys are paid salary along with day rate/ upper management should be ashamed of this along with equipment you want people to operate

These men deserve better and I am sure many will move on to company's that are better equipped and pay people correctly

My opinion would be this company shall lose plenty contracts before they win any.

GET AWAY FROM BSS

by | Post ID:

Poor performance from management along with tp s for bss aberdeen unless your 1of the offshore favourites plenty boys stuck at home as no work offshore as the market goes to other companies whom have better investment.

This is why I left for better wages but most importantly investment going forward.

I would not think to long before more pay offs

These HAL offshore numpties think you catch a bus to go offshore. They need to hire people with more intelligence.

by | Post ID:

No wonder you offshore grunts can't get a pay rise you're thick as mud and daft as a brush and should be in a loony bin.

by | Post ID:

See you thick bean counters about buses it's about time you wise up as you've missed your stop a long time ago

by | Post ID:

What bus do you catch for offshore

by | Post ID:

It seems that the guy with the last comment yet again has no clue as he is getting confused regarding buses they are run by first bus and not aberdeen city council if he is unsure check it out.

It could be that this complainer that he has been on many buses but got caught licking the windows as it seems he knows it all

Are you yes man for halliburton and scared to ask for benefits that staff are entitled to

by | Post ID:

No wonder the company won't give you a pay rise you're thick as mince. No-one said anything about driving a bus offshore. Aberdeen city council are looking for bus drivers you clown. Next time you're driving behind a bus look for the advert displayed on the back of the bus.

Total shambolic halliburton let's see in this world you don't have to be university education what people need is common sense

by | Post ID:

Well I'll tell you clever boy there is no buses offshore it might be the case that you are a fake bus stop thick as sh--e you should change your worzle gummidg head as the head you have is past its sell by date you plank.

Speak sense loud mouth are you a ex halliburton bss employee or may be you have qualifications of a manager thick as f---

Success is not all about money would this be the honest words of our leader jeff miller.

If it is not all about money why would it be that Baroid solids control are lacking when it comes to new technology as we are well behind the times when it comes to major contracts.

What we need is changes all over Bss

1st changes to level management

2nd new investment on equipment

3rd. Big improvement on salary along with offshore day rates.

And finally listen to the world force

by | Post ID:

We don't want massive pounds just want paid correctly as we lack when it comes to wages along with day rates and out dated equipment we operate

by | Post ID:

Lack of equipment that does the job to remove manual handling risks also stops bss offshore staff having there body parts worn down.

Mi have the correct equipment so why does Bss not have the same equipment

I will tell you why as halliburton do not care about staff nor how long your body lasts

by | Post ID:

Treat staff like dirt disorganised all round cannot even get offshore as not 1 off the favourites it's like hide & seek

by | Post ID:

The North Sea is dying and the only future for it is decommissioning old platforms. Those still working on North Sea rigs are the losers in life earning small change. The days of earning big bucks offshore are long gone.

Its so quiet in uk offshore the boys cannot get offshore such a massive company but no thinking make the use of the guys at another division so that they get days offshore as salary does not keep up with cost of living

by | Post ID:

I have worked many years ago for this baroid team and I agree that they pay guys little and bosses cheat the working man unless your 1 of the favourites Shocking

by | Post ID:

I agree with these offshore aberdeen boys hard work lacking on equipment

Poorly paid in this day and age its these hard working people that are let down by so called leaders. That line there pockets in bonuses

by | Post ID:

We need you offshore people to work harder and faster now get back to work so I can make a bigger bonus.

by | Post ID:

How does this help working people answer nothing this company is greedy all round treat staff like sh--e managers out of depth but still picking up bonuses

I work offshore uk and support these hard working men is it the case that people over in the states don't like to talk but only eat hamburgers that is why you are all unfit for dutys

mhg - Go get an education you idiot.

by | Post ID:

Why would Halliburton spend the money to make the field hands job easier? Hell, if it was good enough for Old Earl P., it is certainly good enough for you, so quit your b--ching.

Nothing wrong with digging thru the trash skips, or begging a tool from the rig mechanic so you can do your job, management's philosophy is that IF we bought you the tool, YOU would just lose it, or break it, because YOU are such an incompetent a--, and anyways, ALL you do is sleep, eat, and look at p--n while you are offshore.

Do YOU really think that management gives a rat's a-- about YOUR working conditions, after all, money spent means less bonuses.
