    I just did a search and came up with 0 information on these guys here. Any body here drive for them?

    I start today with an O/O leased to Taylor hauling crude oil from wells. From my research on the O/O he pays better than many of the other O/Os around here. And he is pretty easy to get along with. Some thing that is rare to find it seems.

    Training pay is $12.50 an hr. 12 hr days every day sucks, but the money will be good. 100% medical paid on me once training is over (less than a week).

    I'll keep you guys and dolls posted. This is a different part of trucking than I've ever done. Pulling a tanker and pumping from wells delivering to the refinery. I've done mostly flatbed with a couple van trips, 8 months of car hauling and a couple months of cattle hauling thrown into the mix.

    Time to brush up on the hazmat part of it too. :biggrin_2551: :yes2557:

    Day two of training. This really isn't that hard. Just stuff to keep track of and do it right. Measuring the tanks, doing all the right readings and guessing how much your load weighs.

    I only lasted two months. I figured if I was going to work that hard and that many hrs I should be working for myself. Home was just a motel. I got tired of that.


    Leaving at 4 to 4:30 AM and getting home at 6 pm.

    How ever if the economy goes south and O/O doesn't work out I just might have to go back to this company. I left on good terms with the O/O I was working for and another O/O here.

    You said you were in SE WY. I assume you must be from Cheyenne since I have seen the Taylor trucks there and know they have owner operators that hire drivers. What are you doing now--something else local or long haul?
