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.

thanks

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.
