    MBI is a good company. I did my training at their facility in 2013. They are one of the big players up there.

    I worked there when it was still Missouri Basin Well Service. Then it went downhill when it became MBI. They're good at training, for sure. But I never saw myself having a career there.

    For what it’s worth I make 27 percent as a w2 driver here in New Mexico. For me to consider 1099 I would need to see at least 35 percent. It’s not just the extra taxes you have to think about. There is other things like work comp, health insurance. Most 1099 jobs are a bad deal.

    Also in crude hauling it is very important to know the rate and where the truck owner is in the food chain. You want to be as close to the company buying the oil as possible for the best rate.

    Any of you guys familiar with a company up in Casper, WY called Prairie Field Services? Guy said if I didn't wanna do a 1099, he could hook me up with these guys...
