Long Days and Weeks, Tons of Work.
Written by Truck Driver (Former Employee) from Houston, TX on December 25, 2017
Lots of hours and work when your not being rained out. There are no guaranteed hours in the case of rainouts. Two shifts are available night and day shift. Very competitive and fast-paced. Low wage scale but checks are manageable mostly because of the hours.
