LOL I was told not to say in the field (for wellsite geology) for more than a year. I just hit 2 years and I'm finally getting into an office job. It's not a bad life though. Kinda crazy sometimes, you do anything at any hour, but it's not so bad once you're used to it. Good luck!

It's a field/office job so it will be a good mix. Basically a sales tech. My last job was a PM for commercial construction. Sitting on your ass gets really old fast.

Thanks guys!

Its an ok base, but I get a bonus. $80k min. Most of the work is in CO, so just day trips. But I will be going to ND and WY for a night here and there. Full benefits, company truck ect...Im pretty happy. Just waiting to take a piss test and a green light from HR.

The thing is, I only have this due to walking my dog one morning in my apt complex and a guy had a motorcycle in the bed of his truck, the bike fell and he had noone to help him get back in his lift. I helped him out and we were bsing and told him I was lookin to get into oil, he had been in for 25 yrs and told me to give him my resume and he would see what he could do. He gave me a call a month later and said he knew a guy lookin for help. That's how you network!

nope. A few months ago a pipeline company hired me to be a pm on pipeline construction. It was a sweet gig, but the company kept pushing my start date back and eventually bailed on me. Never heard from them. But anyway, I had no experience which aparantly is critical. So this is my entry level job. But with the rate the US is producing oil and what is going on in the mid east, I think its a great industry to get into.

I agree 100% and there is obviously big money in it if they are paying $80k for entry level!

There's def money to be made, but it can be difficult to get into. Every position i found wants atleast a yr experience. Im really excited where this can take me. I was a poli sci major. I had a focus on international relations, everything comes back to oil.

Gonna have to sell the Tacoma now. No need for 2 trucks.

Most folks I know who have a company truck still keep their personal truck. What are the company's rules on personal use? Can you take a couple hour trip to see friends or family with the company truck? Also, most companies I know of have a strict policy of no drinking and then driving a company truck, meaning not even a single beer.

Just ran across this thread. I've been in the oil/gas industry since 2004 (started at 18). I'm currently directional drilling in North Dakota on a rig north of Watford City. It's an up and down industry, feast or famine, but it's for me.
