    I see most all the vaccum truck companies with low pay. 17 to 18.50 and hour with bennies. Im at 19.32 with none but every weekend off if I want it,days only 12 to 15 a day. This is in midland/odessa

    That was the going rate down there in Texas when I was making $32 an hour up in ND... Some things never change.

    Yeah worked in the eagle ford for 3.5 yrs and was at 20 an hr plus OT,not much more than here. A lot warmer here and tanks dont have to be heated so thw rate for a vaccum truck is around 90.00 an hour. Top dollar for vaccum tankers in driver pay is 22.50 for what ive seen and thats in Carlsbad NM where there isnt shinola there

    Don't engage him. He was burned by the oilfield and trashes it every chance he gets because he couldn't survive the bust

    Great reply.
    I never thought about it till you mentioned it.
    Only time I ever had a appointment in the patch
    Was when I done service work.
    Show up at whatever time and stay till your done.

    Yea those type of workers are either hung over. Or in a hurry to get off so they can get high!

    Thanks for your unnecessary and stereotyping social commentary
