I started as an equipment operator trainee (EOT) in early 2011 in Shreveport. I was then transferred to San Antonio in early 2012 and progressed through EO rankings until February 2015 when I went to Field Specialist (FS) 1 School. I completed FS2 School in March 2017. Shortly after, I transferred back to Shreveport, La.
My older brother was an FS, so he convinced me to come for an interview.
A typical day for me as an FS is managing the crew and preparing and setting up each job.
Challenges I face as a supervisor include managing up to 20 people at a time on location while running the operation.
What I enjoy most about working for SLB is the professional relationships developed throughout your career. Working for SLB, I have made friends from all over the world.
My current working environment is a fast-paced, high-stress, but very fulfilling position.
The thing I was most surprised about when I first got to the field was the amount of equipment we use for a single job.
Be prepared to be challenged.
By far, SLB will provide you with the best training in the industry.
Being an EO has allowed me to master all of the stimulation equipment in my own time.
