If you are sick of the over the road lifestyle and are looking for a change consider the opportunities available in North Dakota. After running over the road, coast to coast for many years I moved up here about a year and a half ago and have not regretted my decision. Let me stress, I AM NOT a recruiter, I work for an oil field services company. Up until October I drove a winch truck but recently got promoted to field rep. My company hauls oil, water used in the production and drilling and the equipment we rent to oil companies.
We recently completed a merger with another company and we are in need of a lot of drivers. You may have heard that it is difficult to find a place to live if you come up here, but my company will not hire you unless they have a place for you to live. I currently have an apartment in a brand new building.
You have to have a class A CDL with tanker and doubles/triples endorsement. You do not have to have hazmat, but that is a plus.
I work with people from all over the country who have come up here because there was nothing going on at home. If you have a family there are two and three bedroom apartments available, and lots of jobs for wives. The wife of a friend submitted her resume online and started getting phone calls five minutes later.
If you want to know more, e mail me with any questions you have, I'll be glad to answer them and tell you how to apply with my company.
PM me for email.
