who all works in the oil fields?

im sure quite a few people here work in the oil fields?

any tips? im currently have a ok job but im never going to get any where with the amount of money i make. i know how to save so im not asking this because im hurting for money like alot of people that run to the oil fields. i just want to work my *** at least 5 years and get a nice chunk saved up and go back home unless i fall in love with it lol... current job in the winter some times im up for over 30 hour stright plowing snow so i think i can handle it.

i have my cdl already what could i realistically expect to make driving or other wise . i have training on running a good bit of equipment . clean driving record and no criminal record.

if does work in the field could you either respond or send me a private message on where to look for job . online seems like everyone wants your money and cant really find much info so far.

What kind of job do you want? Labour? Driving? Equipment?

Roughnecks now are about 30/hour. 12 hours a day, 2 weeks on 1 week off or maybe more on if you want to work over. Plus sub, adds up quick and lots of room to move up if your a good hand. Diggers up to 46/hour now. Pretty good cash if you don't mind the work.

That's the way I went about 12 years ago. Worth every cold day and ****ty job now.
