    Stubby: What is it your hauling? Oil, Diesel? Do you know anyone hauling water? With the drought last year and the big one expected this year I think hauling water and wastewater in the patch is going to be huge this year! If you or anyone can help shed some light that would be great.

    Condensate, and yes Nabors hauls water for drilling support and well site brine water removal, I doubt they haul any water for drought relief. Nabors is looking for water tanker drivers. Kenedy and George West, TX, Man camp avaliable 4 days on 2 days off. As I am leaving 1:00am Thursday for my 4 day shift, up to 15 hours per day, I will be off line.

    You can argue all day long about Schneider, I really don't care what your opinion of them is. FACT is I got my tanker training thru them and they took a chance on me and gave me a start so I appreciate it. Last time I checked America ran on capitalism so everyone has a chance to compete for work. End of story.

    I don't work for Schneider anymore, I work for another outfit in OK tanking crude oil. I drive off-road to well sites, test my oil, then I run my load as far as 520 miles down into TX and I am PAID WELL. No accidents, spills, etc to date and no I didn't get the truck stuck either, LOL (altough that happens to the best of them and I'm sure my time will come)! I guess some are good and some don't have half a brain but don't tell me I don't deserve a shot based on your record or that of some other guy.

    BOTTOM LINE- I didn't create this thread so you could have a place to vent your anger about Schneider. I created it so people would know about an opportunity to work in the energy sector and avoid going OTR. Guess what... personally I've helped almost a dozen people get jobs in the energy sector and avoid the scam know as OTR. Some of you are trying to steer drivers away to scam $$ OTR and I'm helping drivers make $$$$$ energy money so I feel good about the information I post.

    My advice to anyone coming out of CDL school. Don't listen to these crusty grumps who say you must participate in OTR in order to be a good trucker! Find someone who will give you a shot in the energy sector and work your butt off, do your best, soak up the advice and always look to improve yourself. Before you know it you will have all kinds of work offers. I actually left the company I work for now, got hired in 14 hours at another company, didn't like the change so the company I left took me back no questions asked. That's what happens when 1) you are a good skilled worker 2) you work in an industry where your skills are in high demand

    By the way, I run into jealous truckers all the time even at the place I work now. So many egos out there can't FATHOM that I can do the same job they do but if you have half a brain you don't need 2-10 years OTR to make it, haha!

    Exactly what I wanted to hear!

    I'm heading down to Texas at the beginning of May after I get out of CDL school. I know alot of guys want to guilt you into driving OTR to "earn your stripes" but I have no reason to believe that if someone is there to work and takes their time to be safe that they can also be a successful driver in the oil field. I realize that driving a truck not as easy as driving a car, but the way some of these guys talk they'd make it sound like you're piloting the space shuttle. Not calling myself an expert by any means, but I know there's a lot of BS to be had.

    I know that's the route I'm going, and if the OTR guys don't like it...too bad.

    Again Sir,

    There is no company in America that hires a driver with no off road / tanker experience to haul HazMat Tanker in the oil field. Nevermind some driver straight out of CDL school.
    It can't be that everyone else is wrong and schnieder is correct.
    Inexperienced folk can make the same money hauling salt water, sand, fresh water, (or running) hydrovac, flatbed and heavy haul in the Oil Fields of America.
    One year of off road salt/fresh water (gonna make the same $$ as an oilfield newbie regardless of what ya haul) tanker drivin for 60 - 84 hours per week for months at a time is vital training B4 ya put a driver in a HazMat Tanker running dirt "roads" in the oil fields.
    If a newbie has gone 6 months (at least 500 hours) with no incidents, spills or accidents when that driver reaches the one year (1,000 hours) milestone then that driver should be good to go as a off road, HazMat Tanker, oilfield driver.

    You are correct though when you revert to the free market angle. Market forces will continue to drive scum multinationals out of Our oil fields (like thay did in Victoria) because these swine lie to the customer about the services that they will provide. These Heartless, Soulless, Godless robots, of no country, will never pay up to attain the service providers capable of providing the level of service these foriegn hedge fund, autocon scabs have put on the table when they looked a company man in the eyes and lied to him.
