    My post wasn't to make any company look good or bad..it is what is here and there's alot of transitioning going on with companies and the boom..the demand exceeds the employees but their are more workers here then ever before so my advise if anyone is seriouse about comming here for work Keep a Clear Eye and it's a means to an end I don't propmote job hopping but if you come here for a job there's good and bad in them all it's an individual judgement call and I can only share my experiences..I sooooo appreciate PF giving me my start as a new cdl holder myself 2 yrs ago but after almost 2 yrs I was less & less understanding about the lower level High School drama that no one could seem to keep a handle on hahaha sheesh I swear sometimes I felt like I was in grade school drama hahaha but for the most part I have some great friends there still and I decided I wanted a change now not saying it's better but it's a differant drama hahhaa if that makes since...I'm kind of a no nonesence kinda cowgal & was ranch raised and whinning wasn't a part of my growing up so there you have it hahaha PF is still a good company in my opinion would I go back ummmm nope but I always recommend them as an employer what works for me or doesn't work for me shouldn't have a barring on another individual.. :} Phewwww

    They're a lot higher than that in the north, too...
    Probably why they're doing a hiring bonus

    I know the RV park in Dickinson was adding more spaces in March. They were full hook-ups.

    I work at Power Fuels right now and yes everything misc said is correct to the tee. I make 18%, after 90 days it goes to 19% and yes we have to swap out for !5/hr, its not everyday here but in Minot it IS everyday (or so I have heard from minot drivers at the wells). I rent an apt from them and they take the rent out. 1bedroom/900 month. Don't get too excited tho, i just went to a safety meeting and one of the managers said they are getting alot highly qualified applications now and most of them are getting turned down. They are not on the hiring spree that they were on over the winter...they have gotten very selective and are just looking to fill a few positions in the different yards that they have. That is what he said anyway. I feel extremely lucky to be here. If I had waited another month no way would i have gotten in.

    Fractech and Calfrac are two companies I see the most out here. I don't know what exactly the pay or schedule is for them but I assume it's good money and long hours like everyone else out here. Of course Haliburton is probably the biggest I guess, they do just about everything I think.
