Hello guys and ladies

I'm looking to get into the tanker world in Texas. Wondering anyone have any insight about the company profuel. They told me 2500 plus a week! So My radar went off to do some research

Thanks for the help and an advice

Hey Michael, here's what makes my radar go off: Why is it that you keep looking into small obscure companies? You could have a great career by working for some of the largest trucking companies out there. You could have great equipment, consistent miles, and solid paychecks. What is your reasoning behind your choices? I would think the last company you were complaining about to us would have taught you a lesson in this, but then again some of us are slow to learn.

Did you ask them if you are getting a W-2 at the end of the year? Are you actually on the payroll or are you getting a 1099 at the end of the year? It sounds to me like they are expecting you to be a lease operator. It certainly doesn't sound like you have all the necessary information just based on the things you stated.

Perhaps he means 2500 plus miles a week?

They're also known as Resource Transport and haul Frac Sand in the oil fields. I remember their trucks from when I hauled sand out west and I'll tell you don't waste your time. There's good money on sand right now and getting better but you won't make it with them. If you're set o on oilfield, look up Texas chrome trucking (same guy that owns Texas chrome shop in San Antonio) or Agility energy. They're at least legitimate folks to work for. Agility was started by the former owner of Midwest Petroleum (hauled all the fuel for pilot and flying J) he sold it to start Agility and now hauls sand, water and chemicals for energy companies down south and in the east.

I have a drug felony. A lot of the big companies will not hire me. So I have to make due what I can feed myself

Per Diem:

Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It's technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement.

Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time.

We have a ton of information on our wiki page on per diem pay

Thanks Michael, that makes sense and I should have thought of that. Try to stay somewhere for one full year. That alone will change the way the big players will look at you. I wish the best for you, but I just am not familiar with some of these companies.

Good luck in whatever you decide to do, but I just want to throw this out there. Have you checked with Carolina Cargo I know they are a second chance company and may actually give you a shot. I am not too sure on the pay but I do know they run some decent miles by some of their drivers I have talked to at fuel stops and whatnot. Any way best of luck.
