DWI will be if they are providing you with a company vehicle (which most do). I think it was a deal breaker for my current job even though I have a driver. ETA - If you get one after employment it's instant termination....

[quote]According to the CDC, the initial reports of the DRC outbreak yielded a mortality rate of 13/24 (54%). Updates on 9/9, 9/21, and 9/24 yield deaths/cases of 35/62 (56%), 41/68 (60%), and 42/70 (60%). Unless a high volume of cases was reported elsewhere, I think the 90% mortality rate sounds a ...

re: Fellow O&G guys, interview questions - redstick13
The usual rule of thumb is you aren't considered a good DD until after 6 years of experience. It took me 5 years to move out the field in LWD, got stuck in Houston, hated it, went to work as a DD. Did 7 years in the US with a smaller company. Jumped ship to Weatherford as a DD V last year and got...
