If anyone has any questions hit me up in this thread. I mean the job pays top dollar because your away from family and friends and if you have a wife and kids that !! is just harsh, but you make a lot of money.

peace

2 weeks on 1 week off is slavery, now if it was 30 days on 30 days off now we are talking, good money though and very hard work, i'm guessing you took a floorhand training course?

Okay racist
How's that racist? Ignorant? Maybe, but you've never worked on an oil rig so you have no idea what gets said on there.

It`s two weeks on and then they fly you home one week off. You get 140$ tax free to pay for your hotel and food. so you end up making 5 grand every two weeks. It`s a pretty sweet job if you dont have kids or a wife.

Anyways just putting that out there.

It`s mostly white people though so be prepared to have thick skin.

I had a great time and experience.


later
I am from Nova Scotia and the amount of friends that went out west to work is ridiculous.

I took a floorhand course but I don't think they do it anymore. People will teach you on the spot anyways. The oil companies didn't give a !! about the course, all you need is your H2S.

. . 12 hour days for 13 days 24 hours off in the middle than 1 week off. The less days on your paycheck the better. Taxes eat around up to $1500.

8 hours you make $27 and 4 hours you make $40.

Well first thing is that you need you H2S certificate. Oil companies won't even look at you if you don't have that. H2S certificate is a one day course at enform probably a couple hundred maybe less I don't know for sure.

H2S certificate is All you really need. It's a poisonous gas and the class just tells you what to do in an emergency blah blah.

Enform is located in NISKU ALBERTA about an hour away from edmonton. This is also where all the big oil company offices are so after you do the course hand in your resume to all the companies there ( they are five minutes away from each other at the most). They'll interview you right away and may even offer you a job on the spot which is what happened to me after handing resumes to a few places. if not keep calling because people get fired quit everyday.

Also having your own vehicle plays a big part as well as most camp jobs (where they fly you in and out, dont have to pay for meals or rides) are scarce. But they are still available its just that non-camp jobs are all over.

I'm actually going to Texas tomorrow for my first day of training and I start working on an oil rig in a week. $20/hour, $30 when you hit overtime. 12/hours day for a week = $2,100. And Texas is an income tax free state :)
