These turkeys have fifteen similar ones up, but it's hard to understand what they are advertising. Clearly they aren't hiring people, it's some kind of pimping service maybe? Although it sounds like the individual has to market themselves?

I have not applied.

Too much contradiction in compensation... but if I had to guess

It sounds like they are trying to keep overhead low by only paying eng when his time is billable... like a hair salon for engineers

These guys will bring on contractors who they will then contract out to companies on smaller projects that don't wanna hire a full-time employee or contractor themselves. For example, I know companies that don't have an in-house drilling and completions group that go to a firm like this for their D&C work. Not fishy.

Yah I do work with companies as you describe often.

However the way this is layed out and posting 10 jobs at a time for a variety of positions is fishy to me.

this seems very different than the normal D&C contract engineering firms. Just try and find out anything about this company, it's a dead end.
