I recently accepted a job with MBI Energy Services, working out of Ross, and was wondering what the average bi-weekly bring home income is. I'd like to hear from someone who knows the realistic amount. Also, I'd like to know if MBI is a good company to work for, and what the on-site housing conditions are like.

Always compare gross pay to gross pay. Everyone's take home pay will be different. You will be working 60-80 hours per week. Housing varies, apartments, mancamp, etc. What housing did they offer you?

Default Husband hired @ MBI Ross, any and all info welcome

Hello, very glad to find this forum. I wish I'd found it sooner. My husband will be leaving in two weeks from North Carolina for Ross, ND. I can't go with and don't know when I'll see him again.
He will either be in a man camp or skid shack (I think). I welcome and all information from anyone willing to share. Thanks much.

I cannot speak for housing but there is not much else in that town. The place was approaching ghost town status before the oil boom. The old school house with collapsed roof with cupola intact gives the place a post-apocalyptic look. Stanley is a town just a short hop east of there which has more amenities. Minot is about an hour east of there and is the commercial hub of north central North Dakota.

MBI Energy Services
I have worked for MBI in Ross for many years the work in ND has slowed down and work is coming to a halt, most out of state folks are heading back home or looking for work elsewhere the company has been shutting down many divisions of there work and trying to consolidate everything they have there selling large amounts of there trucks the sand division is gone, water trucks are not moving very often, the drivers show up for work and are sent back home, it would be hard to raise a family and have two places to keep up like that. I haul oil and they are changing our pay to piece work its sad to have everything you work for taken from you. The drivers are taking the hit know one else is taking the pay cut, but they terminated most of the Office help that don't drive. Were told they will be shutting down most of there out of state offices. There has been so many people that bought new homes and cars plus moved there families here from afar, I would sum it up as I'm glad to be working and I hope I can hang in there but piece work only pays when there is work, lets hope we don't have to work for wages that are close to working for free. I hope this helps folks that are looking to move here there is work here its just not stable right now.

MBI must have made a bad decision financially in the last year, because they went from being the big fish in trucking services around here, to a badly maimed cougar licking their wounds. They had three towns they hubbed out of, now they relocated everyone to Ross. Ross was all too happy to accommodate, even if that meant for the short term.

MBI cut their housing ties all over the Bakken, they have drivers who are lucky to work twice a week, and they can't leave off that.

Coincidentally, Basin has taken off in the face of all this, they have practically taken over all of the work MBI had in Lignite, and look to be getting even stronger in the area.
