Oil Field Services Company Looking to Fill 23 Positions in Three Rivers

Posted: Updated:
THREE RIVERS (Kiii News) -

An oil field services company called Valerus has 23 positions available in Three Rivers, and they held a job fair Thursday to attract applicants.

Company officials said Three Rivers is a good central location in the Eagle Ford Shale, and because of that, there are plenty of opportunities available.

"I think the difficulty is getting people to move to the area, because the local population is not enough to service the jobs that are available," said Bill Bowers, Vice President of Production Equipment for Valerus. "So we need both local people and people who are willing to move into the area to fill the positions."

Valerus opened up a facility in Three Rivers in February of 2012. They supply the equipment that is used to separate and process oil and gas as it comes out of a well, and it does in-shop and field maintenance of that equipment.

The company said it is looking to fill good-paying jobs.

"Engineering jobs pay well above $50,000 a year. A field technician will make, depending on their experience level, starting at $12-15 dollars an hour," Bowers said. "Of course there is usually overtime involved in field work, so what you actually make depends on how busy we are."

In addition to engineers, Valerus is looking to hire sales reps, warehouse coordinators, inventory specialists and also entry-level positions. They say they will take someone who doesn't have any work experience, and they will train that person to do a number of different jobs.
