Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Elk City, OKApril 8, 2016
Job was exciting. Had to work with numbers from the time I was in the truck at day break to sun down. Had days that co-workers would give a hard time for something that happened to lending a helping hand when something was not working right.

Truck Driver-Crude Oil Operator (Former Employee) –  Kenedy, TXMarch 10, 2016
Drove crude oil tanker to lease tank locations to test and sample oil for delivery to various refineries and unloading stations.

Learned to coordinate with management to improve driver and equipment safety

Discontent and distrust among coworkers with management

The hardest part of job was having to leave

The most enjoyable part of job was learning as much as I did in a short amount of time
Pros
Good quality lease and unloading locations
Cons
Division was eventually sold to another company
