    So where do you find Thomas stations? The only things that I have seen are the card lock stops that Haycock has. They have no services at all, other than fuel pumps. No parking, no C store, no restaurants, no restrooms.
    However, the locations I have seen are limited in number and have been in Nevada & SW Utah.

    AGAIN, this "merger" has nothing to do with gas stations. Pilot Logictics (NOT Pilot's gas station division) bought 49% of Thomas Petroleum's frac and mine fueling operations.

    That's it. That's all.

    Even though they had reduced hours recently, Thomas was one of the outfits I was going to look up when I started applying. I remember reading the Pilot Logistics? generally garnered unfavorable opinions. I'm confused if that was hauling crude for Pilot or working for their frac services. Any experience with Pilot's frac side out there? OR anyone working for Thomas that has any info about upcoming changes?

    thanks in advance

    Just an update if anyone is interested I'm on a site here in the Utica. 6 pilot employees with 2 Thomas fuel trucks. Seems Pilot basically bought Thomas' equipment and market share.

    They seem to be romping up around midland. They're underbidding big time, would be my guess anyway

    Pilot Thomas is ok just not getting hours, were only allowed to get 60-65Hrs a week, and they have us on a 4/2 schedule. Just a lot more paperwork to do now.
