Silverline Services is a Colorado-based oil and gas electrical and automation works company that also operates in Midland, Texas, a state that appears to have no labor laws, where calling in sick means, getting fired the following day. A lot of hiring is done thru employment agencies to hide this revolving door.
Anyway, work hours are 6 am to 6 pm 7 days a week with "working lunch". Labor, parts and supplies are billed to Encana, and employees use their own tools. It's a easy hired and just as easy to get fired. Often random drug tests are given, but still the violators are fired selectively.
Company's Midland office is run by a Hispanic mafia as nearly all workers are Hispanic and they run off whoever they want. Once journeyman electrician was asking his black helper if he had come from ghetto. But if you even say "fajita", they call you a "racist." When company officials come down from Colorado they are sure to bring along burritos instead of donuts.
Despite coming in at 6 am, employees don't make it to job site until 8:30 am because they stop off for gas, refreshments, a bag of ice and some Mexican food. Encana inspectors don't arrive at job site until later so burrito time is billed as labor time to Encana. The need for gas arises daily as employees run their pick ups idle at job sites. They say, they don't like to get into a hot truck but even weather isn't so bad, they still leave them running. So, my guess is that gas too is billed to Encana.
Company's own tools are so few that when they invited 10 employees to help pour concrete into molds with only a trowel and a screed for tools. Logic being that labor of 10 can be billed to Encana but not the cost of the tools. With no tools around, I picked up a wooden board off a pallet to help out.
Once I was asked to dig up a tunnel to bury a grounding cable with my screwdriver. I still don't understand the need to bury a green wire when similar diameter gray tubing was running over ground. Luckily, another mechanical company's workers were around and they jumped in with a pick to dig the ground. I imagine even vehicle gas is billed to Encana because employees never turn off their pick ups while out working on job site. They claim, they don't want to get into a hot truck but they even do this on cooler days.
Company's dusty shop is a literal sweat shop without the luxury of any fans. Not far from shop is a house where company employees from Colorado come to stay while they are down hiring new employees before firing the old ones.
After employees are fired, they are given only one day to remove their trailer off Company's employee RV park. If they are unable to comply given the timeframe, the local manager Rick Blanco who I never saw doing anything except flirting with the office secretary will park his black Chevy Silverado Z71, Texas tag # LCZ 3023, outside the trailer to try to honk to and harass them out of their trailer, after his younger brother Reuben Blanco has harassed them out of employment. I call them the buritto brothers.
