    Coming up on two years experience and thinking about trying tanker. Short list so far, in no particular order (all in my backyard):

    Neier
    Linde
    Messer
    PFJ
    Circle K
    Marathon

    Neier is advertising $90k+ for regional, hard to find any info about them though.

    I work for Linde.
    Good paying gig, I did 125 but could have done around 10 more.
    Strict guidelines to follow if you can adapt.
    If you can get on w 2 yrs experience instead of 3 as they used to require I say go for it.

    Depends on alot.
    We have two bid sleeper gigs that go out for 5 and home for 2.
    Most plants are daycab gigs w occasional layovers at the motel, but several have to run sleepers for longer runs or extended time on the road.
    Talked to a guy in Indiana who works out of Louisville who runs east to PA and W VA in a sleeper.
    PSI has jobs that work on the road on projects and turnarounds, they can stay out for months.
    I saw they had a Phoenix job out 21 and home 7.
    Just have to scrutinize the job listings and inquire.
    Don't really know about OTR per se.

    I work for Linde also, ditto what Dennixx said, I actually took 4 weeks unpaid LOA and still did 124… not a bad gig imo (but I come from ltl freight so my opinion could be biased)

    Current fuel hauler here...we deliver to Circle K stores A LOT.

    I would respectfully suggest that you take Circle K off your list--& replace it with Love's.

    Depending also on what city/state you are near--you may be overlooking some other good options.

    I don’t know what “kill myself” means (hardest part of this job is rolling out of your warm bed) ….the way I see it… my company is giving away money, I feel like why can’t they give it to me lol

    I’m just wired different I guess, unless I’m tired…. If I DONT run up on my 70, I’m calling logistics to see if they can use some help on my sixth day lol



    to answer your question most guys in our plant do 55 to 62 hours a week
     
    cman87 Thanks this.

    A hotel for two nights every weekend ; eight nights in a hotel is probably more expensive than an apartment .
