    There are 1000 job postings for the Williston ND area. I turned down one the other day, $ 25.00 winch truck driver. If you want to work, there are openings. No housing assistance now, but you can rent a nice apartment for around $ 800.00/ month.
     
    Mecic68w Thanks this.

    As a side note, I am hauling rock now and did 1700 last week in 5 days. Next week looks the same. There is plenty of work if you can have some patience.

    1700 miles or 1700 bucks? Hell yeah, if it's paying that I'd go up there for work

    $ 1700.00. Normal week is $ 1100.00. But it is seasonal. I will be laid off in November. All of the rock hauling in North Dakota is seasonal. About 6 months work, but I am ok with that. Layoff in November and off until May or June. (I am semi-retiring from the rat race.)

    I'm waiting till January. I went to the oilfield in Nov 2014. Good timing right? So I figure fall is bad luck for me. Plus my accident will be 3 years old by then so that should open some doors. Then if they're hiring in the middle of winter then things are really booming.
