    46 now..
    And I wish you luck.
    You can probably count on spending two years getting your driving thing on the go. If you can manage that then you will get your wish.

    Hey guys, I got really lucky, after applying and talking to the frac companies, I chose to try fluid hauling up by Elk Point. It is 95% highway work, up near Fort Mac each day, pump on, then back down near Elk Point, pump off. 12 - 15 hour days, live in the truck, 14 on 7 off and making 10 - 12k/month. I find it boring sometimes up and down highway 63, but it seems to be the gravy job and pays really well. I found it on kijiji. Mostly experienced guys in this job but a guy gave me a break, brand new 2012 kenworth and super b's!
     
    oilfield Thanks this.

    THANKS! just did my first round, straight outta driving school, the owner was really patient and said no double clutch, no brake, smooth shifts and jake to stop, showed me the ropes and after 4 days i was on my own. Home now for days off and go back up Sunday for another round. It really is an easy job and pays well.

Our client has a #1 safety first culture, and provide an extensive training package to all new candiates. The location of the position is in either Alberta or Saskatchewan. The shifts will be straight 6 weeks, and 2 off OR straight 8 weeks and 2 off.

Permanent relocation is also available with a generous relocation package. Initial flights are provided, and all accomodations and meals are supplied during the orientation and training periods.
    This is an incredible opportunity. First year compensation is $65k-$75k with opportunities to go over $100k after the first year. Other compensation opportunities include a 3% of salary safety bonus, and a generous benefits package after 36 weeks.
