I am looking for a new career in the Odessa area and Midland Texas in the Oilfields. I have my Class A driver license, with Tanker Endorsement and Hazmat Endorsement with 14 years OTR experience but no oilfield experiences. Can someone help me to find a job in this field?

I don't have a driver's license. Is there an opening for me anywhere?

When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.

I find stepping back, re-evaluating your skill set and making changes to your key words helps. I recently found an old resume from 14 years ago that showcased skills I hadn’t used in some time and I do plan on... see more

Driving for Pepsi has been a great entry level start to a career as a Class CDL Driver. I have enjoyed the experience and what this company has taught me. This is a growing company with a lot of opportunities.

I would love drive for pepsi.

I was reading this article that says that women are better, safer truck drivers than men. Yeah there are less of us to go on but I agree. My cousins all truck and they have been in like 2 or 3 accidents, me, none my whole life. ZERO. That whole women can't drive thing is a bunch of crap.I have been told that to my face a few times before. Do you think that's fair?

I'm a pretty athletic guy but since starting trucking it's really hard to find a way to get exercise OTR... How do u get in a workout? Also there's mostly fast food to eat so that makes it harder!

I was a trucker. A few years back I was drivin up a icy hill in the middle of winter when another semi coming down the hill started to jackknife. His trailer swung out sideways blocking the entire road and headed straight towards me!! The whole time all i could think of was this is it. Thank god no one was hurt. Must have angels on my side or something. We all walked away and I learned a lesson to never under estimate mother nature when your... see more
