I know this british guy who just moved to Australia and he said the companies there dont pay for him to fly back to England, every time he wants to go back to England, he needs to buy his own ticket after his hitch.

I am wondering if canadian companies buy expat tickets to fly to their homes. It will be nice if they would pay for the tickets after a 28 days hitch.

Pitt, I doubt they do but I'm not too sure, most safety guys I know work a 2 weeks on, 1 off shift. That's typical shift in the oil sands, not too many guys work 1 month on, 1 off (I did for awhile and my company gave me $1000 for flights each shift), most prefer 12/7, 10/4, 21/7, etc because they want to make more money to buy stuff like trucks, house, ATVs, etc.

You could get a seasonal safety gig and only work maintenance shut downs then go wherever you want when the gig is up.
