    They just Went Hourly starting wage and even for some who have been their working their butts off for 6months is $20hr. {10 holidays-paid for 12hrs x your pay .} 8 sick days , vacation , they want to go 12on/12off 1day driver-1 night
    So you'll be limited to 60hrs a week , they go 5 days on/3 off 5 on / 2 off {you'll drive 2 different trucks in a week} every other week. pay is Bi-weekly , Full family Healthcare is about $430 month. BC/BS.

    overtime after 40 / paid 30 min dot break.



    Dispatch is Horrible at times , they say their will be Centralized dispatch by someone in Oklahoma that has no Fricken clue whats going on up here i,m sure this will work just Dandy .

    The Trucks are t800 kw days cabs and 220bbls Trailers some air some , mechanical , the Shop is a Joke for the most part ,

    They have Fast talking ,Question avoiding Corporate people that will fill you're head with BS.

    So their you go 1st hand knowledge , i work their for now .

    Water hauler ? 2yrs Driving and 6 months tanker and i believe they'll take you .

    Need to Break into Crude ? Use this company as a Stepping Stone that's what their Good For .

    I talked to them the other day. The guy I talked with said pay depends on experience and also said they were looking for NGL drivers, but seemed to be pushing 2 crude side. $20 / hr doesn't seem like much for hauling crude. There are a number of other companies averaging $25 or so.

    They are running with us in western OK this week... story is $25/hr with OT. Pretty good money depending on the hours. Trucks look decent...daycabs. I'm told that these guys are working 14hrs/day. I'm also told that they are hiring alot though, which probably means slip seat 12 hr shifts as soon as they can fill the seats?

    OK, to know about the pay. $25 /hr is about the going rate give or take. $20 seemed a bit low. But 14 hrs a day is about the norm around here as well. But it wouldn't surprise me to 12 if they get enough drivers

    High Sierra continues to buy SWD in my area of operations; a wide swath from Dilley on I-35 up to Gonzales with Texas 72 being the spine. Yeah, I'm amazed each time I see another SWD with their name on it.
    The owner of Nelson's SWD on TX 123 in Panna Maria says he thinks there trying to corner the market.
