I know thereís probably not many here looking to be a roughneck but if there is here are some solid opportunities to get in.

Most of the fracking companies are hiring for all positions in San Antonio. They are having job fairs in the Valley and in Laredo, trying to lure guys to come here. Aint nobody wants to work around here.

A lot hasnít to do with hands who were working and got comfy, got laid off, and found new jobs and now are too hesitant to jump back in due to uncertainty. But thatís the oilfield. Like a roller coaster. Ainít for everyone.

Yes sir that is true. I know that they are hiring and firing too. No call no shows, random drug tests and lying or laziness is getting a lot of guys in trouble. A fella ought to be able to get job fairly easy right now.

I started adding inventory again just in case we get rocking and rolling again.

True story there. ďTake your time, donít get in a rush, fill out 47 trees worth of paper work to move a lift sub with the fork lift, if youíre not sure ask everyone until someone finds the right answer, do 9 JSAís for one job, for the love of God donít say ugly things to mediocre hands.Ē
