Imagine being surrounded by a high-performing team all working toward the same goal

Whether you’re looking to advance your career or looking for a new challenge, BJ Services is always looking for skilled, experienced professionals to join our team.  

We invest time and resources in building leaders and seek those who share our values and our commitment to safe and reliable service.

Sasha is responsible for all technical and operational learning content and delivery for BJ’s fracturing services. She develops content for technical and operational fracturing courses that build the foundational knowledge of our Field Engineers, Field Leaders and Field Coordinators.

How has your career progressed with BJ Services?

I was hired as a lead Field Engineer in January 2017 to establish the first fleet in Dickinson, ND. As a Field Engineer, I rigged up and down every job with the crew, ran every piece of equipment and supervised fracturing operations. During that time, I learned a lot about people management, asset management, and the true nature of what operations needs to be successful.  I advanced to lead the District Fracturing Engineering department, then became the Engineering Manager for both the fracturing and cementing service lines before transitioning to my current role managing Fracturing Technical and Operational Learning.

How do you use your field experience in your current position?

My experiences in the oilfield have given me a unique perspective because I have worked in every role that I am instructing. I spent time looking at the gaps in knowledge from the field level, so now I work to develop content for our technical and operational fracturing courses that help close those gaps.

My heart is in Operations and I love the fact I get to use those skills by training our leaders. I take pride in seeing field personnel leave the courses invigorated with confidence in their technical and operational competencies. The knowledge we impart on them today has a huge impact on what tomorrow looks like.

What advice would you give to people looking for a position with BJ Services?

If you like environments that are dynamic and unique, where you can leave your mark and where teamwork and comradery are highly valued, then apply to be a field engineer. You should expect to work hard, get dirty, and be part of a great oil field services company. As a hiker, climber, hunter and avid outdoors woman, I can say firsthand that being a field engineer is a great life!

What skill best prepared you for your role?

Being self-critical, which is also highlighted in our leadership training. Being able to admit when you make a
mistake and learning and growing from that. Then, not being afraid of stepping up to take on that next challenge.

What does the statement, “Leaders Building Leaders” mean to you?

It’s the foundation of what BJ Services is and how we will continue to grow as a company. Our people step up to challenges and lead by example. Given a set of job parameters, they often exceed expectations and bring the people who report to them to a level even they themselves didn’t know existed.

How do you demonstrate leadership in your role?

It’s my responsibility to bring ideas and solutions from the front-lines up the chain of command. Often, they are the best people to solve issues related to their work. It’s also about bringing the newest person who is brought on to a crew and giving them the same voice as someone who has been around the longest.

What advice would you give to people looking for a position with BJ Services?

This is the place you need to be. Everywhere else is status quo. We’re different and we’re going to continue
to be better.

What has been the most influential moment in your career?

In our industry, we always talk about the importance of safety. Early in my career, I witnessed a serious safety incident and the effect it had on our co-workers and the employee’s family. That’s when I knew I could do more to make an impact and help keep people focused and safe on the job. That’s when I decided to focus my career on Health & Safety.

What is the culture like at BJ Services?

We apply high reliability principles to everything we do, from working in the field to working in Human Resources or Finance. Everyone at BJ Services does their part to be reliable and error free. There’s no wall between employees and management — we have a true open door policy and team mentality. We work together to continually learn and dig deep into our challenges so we can improve ourselves and our business. We deliver service in a way where there’s more flexibility and trust to be reliable and safe, time after time.

Why are you excited to be part of the team?

There are many opportunities for growth, both as a company and as employees. I’m most excited about growing the company in the right way, and giving people a way to grow and develop their skills. I learn something new every day and I can’t wait to see what we’re going to move onto next.
