This ONE time only I have to disagree. I believe a person has to do what they have to for themselves. I also believe that it is not thier business we are applying for a job to work period. We are adults how we choose to live is ours. . I have NEVER in a interview been asked on my living situation and if they have to ask me I can't say "Is none of your business" as I want the job but will tell them what they want to hear.
I would NEVR tell a potential employer I was living in a car, heck i would't even tell my family.

As a person who was once homeless, all I can say to this post is AMEN!

To hell with the naysayers and the dudley-do-rights (including potential employers). Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Not a single soul knew I was homeless, including my employer.

You have never been asked about your housing situation in an interview because you have not worked in Williston. I'm not saying it's a managers business where or how you live I'm saying that it's a reality out here to be asked what your address is. Normally it's asked legally on the job app. In an employers eyes it's not always a deal breaker to not have housing. It's a reality here to be looking for housing.

Dimka03 said he works for the largest casing company. That would be Franks Casing (google them) they recently bought out a local casing company called Joe's Casing. And no, all casing companies are not named after their owners first name. Sounds like they might be hiring. I'd look em up.

Everyone here said the parking lot looked like a circus by all the equipment in the lot.
I noticed that at Walmart today there were a LOT less RVs and campers than last week. I was wondering if something happened. Last week it looked like a zoo with many campers running generators outside.

I'm suprised that a guy dying there was not on the television news. I watch KUMV news all the time and there was nothing about it.

Probably because it wasn't true.

I'm gonna step in and defend this guy. Twice I have applied for jobs out of the area I was living in and put down a fake address (usually I go on Craigslist, find a place for rent and use that address) .....and both times I have gotten jobs, that if I had put down my REAL address, they would have said "psss...she lives to far away" Point blank, when your desperate, and the poster is obviously desperate, you do what you have to do! He didnt drive 1300 miles for nothing! These companies need to bring in more trailers and take it outta peoples check (the rent) problem solved!

Lol I was with joes for a month and they only worked me 4 Freakin days. Just a bunch if druggies there. And after they hire you they don't mention that the first 200 hours will all be a training wage of 15 an hr. Joes only has contracts with about 10 rigs. My current company has contracts with over 90 rigs. That's the reason I work 6-7 days a week. Go work at joes casing and see for yourself how ****ty they are.
