Default OT: Just moved to edmonton looking for oil rig job..

Hey me and my buddy just moved to edmonton today and we both are just about to get our H2S and first aid ticket.. is there anything else we would need? And also where is the best place to apply for oil jobs around edmonton? We saw some when we were driving here from BC and hopefully we can work on one thats about an hour away or so.

I have heard most offices are in Nisku, couple mins south of Edmonton. That is where my buddy went to apply for rig jobs...

just phone the main offices and they'll point you in the right direction. its not hard to get a job up here.. apply to some places one day and you'll get offers for a week running. your whims might come in handy too.

I work for BJ Services in red deer, and i was just recently working in Fort Sask. (just outside edmonton). I was working for BJ Process and Pipline Services, and if you want i would reccomend checking them out. Approx. 6 grand a month starting, that is a $2500 garunteed salary, and job bonuses (should be in the $4000 area or higher in busy months).

You don't need to pay for anymore tickets though, stop now. Mostly all companies will pay for everything. Including your class 1 or 3, which is required for BJ Process and Pipeline.

It's easy stuff, slack work.. You will work in plants pumping nitrogen and be within 3 hours of edmonton at the worst.

The shop is located in edmonton by sherwood park.

The shop is located at 9010 34st in Edmonton. It is not as slack as this guy would lead you to belive. You maybe in Pincher creek one day and Fort Nelson the next. A class 3 licence is pretty much going to be required unless you have some experiance in other areas such as Chemical cleaning or plant experiance. His estimation on wage may be a bit High , I would think that a new hire person would make about 50k to 60k a year. I am getting this information from a very reliable source.......me. I am one of the co ordinators for BJ pps

Service jobs are real easy just lots of driving and long days. No real hard work. I work for Trican and the guys here don't do much other then get up early and drive all day. You will need atleast a class 3 and a clean driving record to get a job. The guarantee metioned above does seem alittle high but like most oil jobs your money comes from working and getting job bonuses which will double or triple your guarantee. I would just start phoning every company you see and ask if they are hiring. Right now there is a shortage of workers everywhere so getting a job will not be that hard at all.

What people ask for and what they'll hire are two very different things. While employers may want a 3rd year tradesperson they'll be happy to take someone that will show up for work each day and doesn't have a drug problem.

That too, but you can send a guy home if he smells like a bottle of rye. It's a little trickier to tell when he has meth or some other drug in his system.

You should try Fort McMurray. Fax some resumes to syncrude or suncore.

If you get on the rigs, chances are you'll be up around Fort Mac, or on a service rig around Medicine Hat.

I never needed my H2S, or anything before I got a job. My company paid for it all.

so far I've gotten my H2S, PST, whimis, TDG, first aid, marine emergency duties, offshore basic survival training, air brakes, defensive driving, and class 3 license all paid for since I started working in oil and gas.

I'm currently working in the wireline end of things. I like it because every day is different. different sites, different jobs. lots of driving, and sometimes really long hours.

If you get on a rig somewhere, you can be gone from home 2 weeks at a time, work is somewhat monotonous, but the pay is decent. housing and food is paid for if you stay in a camp. It's a decent way to save money and get ahead while you're still young.

good luck

I should ad, take a drive to Nisku and head down the main drag there (can't remember what highway number it is). Bring a handfull of resumes with you. Several companies have their shops along there within eyesight of the highway.

Nabors drilling usually has a billboard sign out saying they are hiring. Every time I pass them they are hiring.
