    Production is way up here in Wyoming. Of course my company is looking for crude haulers. Not quite boom money right now...but close. I'm working 6-1 and enjoying the $$...hopefully we will get some drivers soon so I can take a 2 days off ! ! !

    This isn't a temporary job, we all live here full time, therefore there is no housing or rotation. We are paid every 2 weeks. Pay is around 3600+ every 2 weeks, depending on experience.

    Yea,I don't know that I have ever heard of a crude hauling outfit doing rotations or paying for housing.........I take that back Pilot Logistics up here in the Tx Panhandle provides housing........no clue if there is a rotation other than the standard 4 on 2 off(days)

    I always hated getting up there to gauge. That's one thing that turned me off about crude hauling, as they had to do it way more than me (water).

    A dollar a barrel for a 10-hour trip doesn't sound like my cup of tea.
