oft,..really ladies – Re: oilfield trash...
c'mon ladies are ya really going there. by all means correct me if i am wrong. if it were not for oilfield trash your "department" would simply not be required. i think i speak for everyone when i state " office staff should be more aware of what takes place out on location befor the hr department for orion drilling llc labels its hard working hands "oft". its seems apparent another apology is in order. on another hand, you ladies really do have great people skills considering you deal mainly with hispanics. this company will continue going places with or without the hr ladies. after all, all the oil and gas drilling rigs need is a few real roughnecks.
put the women and children to bed. its time to go work nites!!! you had it i got it...
Re: Rude HR – Adam:
I would like to address your comments about your opinion of our HR Department. You were hired and under federal law you are to have furnish proper documentation. You were told to report to the office in the morning to present those documents to Michelle so we could be in accordance with the law. You failed to do as told and you went to work. You may not understand the importance of paperwork but my department does.
Michelle’s office is next to mine and I over heard the conversation that took place. She was not ‘rude’ nor did she ‘laugh or belittle’ you. She clearly stated again what was expected of you. You may not be accustomed to a young lady being stern with you but clearly you disrespected her when you failed to follow her instructions on your 1st day on the job. I apologize that you felt this way but in my professional opinion you took her directness as an insult. She gave you the option to go home to attain the documents and return to work. Instead you quit. After having a conversation with your supervisor she even called you to apologize when she heard you felt offended.
Adam, you must understand there are many things we must follow and lots of paperwork we must complete due to federal and state laws. You wouldn’t present to proper paperwork nor did you follow instructions. Michelle is a very sweet, intelligent, professional young lady but stern when she has to be. I did address your comments with her but no discipline actions will be taken. You are responsible for your actions or lack of actions.
We are sorry your employment at Orion Drilling wasn’t more then a few hours and you felt my department was rude but I stand behind the actions of Michelle. If you would like to discuss this situation further you may call me directly.
Rude HR – I just wanted to let everyone know how rude the HR personnel are..but as I see everyone this is not the first time this has happened.
I applied with this company and got hired on..but when completing my paperwork the woman in HR Michelle was very rude to me since I did not have all the proper documents that I needed. She continued to be rude, laugh and belittle me in front of another female employee.
I read that most of the employees at Orion are Hispanic..well..Im sure they did not have to deal with the very rude and disrespectful young lady in HR dept.
I hope that she is held accountable for her actions..but as I continue to read some of the reviews it hasn't and she's probably the one that everyone is complaining about.
When will something be done? I guess never and that this behavior is allowed..must be nice to treat people like crap...
I worked with this guy – I just wanted to comment on Mr.contreas i had the opporunity to work with him and had an input on his evaluation.First of all race played no role in his termination and further more the H.R. is right 90-95% of Orion is hispanic if anyone can cry racism it could be me.Dan moeller is by for a raceist usually if we look into the mirror we can find the problems that haunt us.For someone with three years exp. he didn't display the professinalizem you would exspect from a three yr.vet.It is unfortunate that he didn't make the cut and also every thing happens for a reason.We all go though trials in our lives accept and move on.
iwas hired on the spot as a floorhand – i worked for a week and then was "layed-off" turns out the guys on the rig didn't like beaners.. the toolpusher, dan molar, is an arrogant, ignorant, close-minded j3rk. make no mistake, i have experience and i made sure to bust my @ss that whole week..didn't want to give them a reason to run me off. ( i have a 1yr old daughter with epilepsy and need the insurance and money), especially since i just got layed offfrom greywolf last month.my point is be careful applying there or working with those guys, it doesn't matter how well you perform, just your last name is what they're interested in. mark GUERRA, ignored me all week,the driller for orion called my wife and told my wife that"the rig is laying him off." & then hung up. didn't ask to talk to me or anything i called back immediately to see what the problem was.i couldn't get a straight answer.one guy said i wasn't cutting it & i asked for an example that i wasn't doing my job 2 the best of my ability..the reason suddenly changed to" we need somebody with more experience". i have over 3 years experience &take pride in the fact that if i was hired to clean a toilet that would be the cleanest toilet anybody ever saw. they R full of sh*t not to mention r@cist, judgemental and unprofessional. i have been raised around oil field trash.i know some big @ssholes.but these guys beat them all! i went into the office to make them aware of the situation &the company guys basically told me tough sH*t. couldn't get transferred to another rig or anything. they said that if i used them as a reference they would give me a good review so what the hell? maybe if i told them my wife is a rich white girl they would have at least given me a chance to prove myself.their loss....oh yeah mark guerra is chickensH*t for not telling me that i was lay me off 6hrs earlier when i was the ONLY GUY TRIPPIN PIPE FOR HIM. WHAT A AWESOME DRILLER, RIGHT? THIS COMPANY IS HEADED TO THE TOILET IF THESE GUYS ARE ANYTHING LIKE THE GUYS THAT ARE RUNNING IT!
In response to... – Dear Mr. Contreras:
Yes I remember this situation. We sat down with you and discussed the issues with your Rig Super, an Ops Manger and me (HR Director). We take issues seriously here at Orion and so we agreed to speak with you on this matter.
First and foremost I understand you were still angry when you wrote this review about our company and I am sorry you could have made a home here with Orion. But please don’t use race as a factor of your termination or your family life. Here at Orion, as well with most of South Texas, we are approx 90-95% Hispanic. It doesn’t matter who your wife is or what your family situation is (although I am sorry we couldn’t help you obtain health insurance for your daughter.)
We hire based on experience and job loyalty. You received and opportunity here because you had 3 years (but only just made the 3 year mark). But we gave you an opportunity but it’s your responsibility to keep your job. In our meeting I gave you your reviews about your performance so there should be nothing stated here. It is our common practice not to move people around due to a conflict because history shows the conflict will follow the employee.
Our management staff on location has been trained to expect the best out of your employees and see if a new employee might become a potential safety factor. Now I will admit that our company isn’t perfect and sometimes our hands are unprofessional, but they are not office staff - they are as you say OFT.
I do apologies how you were informed your services were no longer needed but as I say we aren’t perfect and we learn form our misjudgment. Good luck in your future job search.
In response to Rude & Crude
My last apology was deleted by accident.... but I apologies for your experience with either myself or my staff. I hope that future applicants understand that we, like everyone else, do get overwhelmed and have bad days. But that is no excuse for rudeness. I have addressed the issue and hopefully we can be more willing to help with all phone calls.
The reason why we dont send applications or request applicants to come in to fill out and application is if we have an opening and you qualify we hope to put you through the hiring process and get you out to a rig so you can start work.
Again I apologies for the event.
CRUDE AND VERY RUDE – I SIMPLY CALLED AND ASKED FOR A WEBSITE IN REFERENCE TO POSSIBLE EMPLOYMENT ONLY TO HAVE SOMEONE IN HUMAN RESOURCES VERY VERY RUDELY ASK ........DOES IT NOT SPECIFY IN THE AD APPLY IN PERSON? A SIMPLE YEA OR NEA WOULD HAVE SUFFICED IN THIS VERY "UNIMPORTANT" SITUATION. RUDENESS AND UNPOLITENESS SEEM TO ABOUND IN LARGER CORPORATIONS WHERE TOP MANAGEMENT RIGHTLY ASSUME AND EXPECT "PROFESSIONALISM" FROM THEIR PERSONNEL WHO ARE MORE APT TO COME IN CONTACT WITH THE "AVERAGE" PERSON AS MYSELF SIMPLY ATTEMPTING TO STAKE OUT AN HONEST LIVING. I REPEAT, HONEST........MY CALL WAS MADE ON 02-22-08 ON OR ABOUT 11:50 AM FROM MCALLEN, TEXAS. I PERSONALLY DON'T DEEM IT NECESSARY TO DEAL WITH THESE TYPE OF CHARACTERS. THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE IN HUMAN RESOURCES WITH ORION DRILLING IN CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS.
