It’s refreshing to go to work every day at a place that brings greater clarity and progress to my personal and professional life. I happened on to Hilcorp, and with everyday I’ve worked here, I’ve come to realize more and more – just how lucky I am to have found such an exceptional company with such exceptional people.”

I also see that there are no turf wars. Everyone is excited to see other teams succeed, because when they succeed, we all benefit. I feel blessed every day I found this company and have the opportunity to be part of the Hilcorp Energy Company family,”
“We operate as a team company, we have clear goals and are given the resources to achieve them with rewards to match the goal level we progress to. You are treated like a person not an employee. You are given a job to do and not micromanaged to the point of just doing what is told but doing the job right, efficient and productive.”
