Hiring, Onboarding, Training and Development are key areas of focus throughout the employee’s career with Ranger. By focusing on these critical areas throughout their career, our employees are armed to complete their jobs with Ranger quality standards, to excel and to advance their career. As a result, Ranger deploys highly qualified completion and workover teams capable of performing multiple rig based positions. Many of the best crew members possess the experience and ability to work in multiple roles ranging from Floorhand to Rig Operator.
Hiring Managers receive training on Guided Interview Questions. Our applicants are asked structured questions that are designed to assess experience, character, and qualifications. The results help to indicate a candidate’s skills and potential, which can be used as a base line for a given competency.
All new employees complete a three-day Ranger Boot Camp including SAFE LAND safety training and Ranger Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) training. New employees are assessed on their work experience and ability to complete a general knowledge questionnaire.

An SSE receives additional hands-on training, coaching, and mentoring over 180 days with periodic management readiness and development assessments.
