But, can the engineers like double up on contracts or something to get over time hours. Also, has anyone got to the bottom of the American getting a visa B.S.

With a masters degree in mechanical engineering, you shouldn't have a problem getting a visa into Canada, do some research on the immigration Canada website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/

I'm sure you'll be well compensated at whichever company you end up working at, don't worry about OT hours, you'll have your hands full learning and doing whatever position you're put into. Trust me, this is a line of work where, if your employers sense that you have half a brain and some decent people skills, you will advance quickly.

I encourage you to come up here and check it out, I've worked with several Americans over the years and they all say that this is the best money that they've ever made. Tell your class mates too and anyone else in the states that you know, you have the skills that we need and trust me, you'll be welcomed here.

peace
