Why do you work for Danos?

Wendell Ardoin - Danos gave me a chance to be able to work again in doing what I like to do, manage a field, and teach young workers how to work with a great attitude and to treat people like you want to be treated.
Don Thacker - I became employed by Danos because of a changeover in the contract I am currently on. I work for Danos because of the integrity of the leadership, all the way to operational managers. I knew I made the right decision to work for Danos when I walked into the office and saw the placard that read “Honor God”. I am very thankful to be a part of a company that genuinely cares for its employees.
Billy Gillis - Danos is a company with true integrity and that's rare in today's business world.
Seth Duhon - Danos firmly believes in safety and compliance which is important to me. We all want and should return home to our families the same way we left.
Broc Mann - It is a family-oriented company. You don’t see that often anymore.
Terry Schexnider - I work for Danos because they care about you and your family. In recent years, my wife and I have had medical issues and surgeries. The Danos family, management, staff and fellow workers were and still are concerned about me and my wife`s well-being.
Jacob Mayberry - I know many current and past employee‘s that work/worked for Danos. They would always talk about how great it is to work for the company. These days so many people seem to hate where they work for one reason or another. I think it’s great to see how the Danos employees are so proud to talk about how much they love their jobs. I am grateful I have found this company and hope to have many more years to grow here with Danos.
