RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Good attitude Irishman, you're right, if other people can do it, then why not you?

I don't think there's too much "hazing" going on, at least not like you'd see in a frat house, there is a lot of work to do so there shouldn't be a lot of time for shenanigans. There likely will be a lot of screaming and yelling and hard work going on and not a lot of idle time on the rig, I'm sure you're ready for that.

Even if it does suck really bad, the rewards for toughing it out until the spring break-up are huge, you'll have enough money saved up to explore other options in the oil biz, if that's what you'd like to do at that time.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
