Great job, until it isn't
Non-CDL Operator (Former Employee) – Oklahoma – March 2, 2015
You get paid ridiculous amounts of money considering the type of work you're doing. When there is work, you have the potential of working 80 hrs a week, even though the limit for cdl drivers is 70, but don't worry, they'll tell you to cheat on your log books. When work slows down, you better hope you saved some money because you'll be lucky to get 16 hrs sometimes. But don't try to file for temporary unemployment because they will fight you on it tooth and nail.
If you go out of town, don't expect to be able to come home until the job is done, even when there are guys sitting at home because they will not rotate out. I was gone for 3 months straight with no opportunity to come home.
If you get sent out to do clean oil rig pits, be prepared to go without sleep or a relief crew for over 24 hours.
This job is awesome for single folks or people who don't like being at home very often, and for people who don't mind doing the same thing virtually every day, just on different locations.
Plenty of hours, great pay and benefits
Little home time, incompetent corporate staff
