Shit is it all shift work? I have an interview lined up with Keyano for that haul truck course later this year as my jumping off point into Ft Mac. It looks like a pretty sweet gig, I am just not sure how flexible they are with time off.

What else have you heard about haul truck operator positions (maybe Scotian can comment too)? Do they have the same opportunities for time off that the other trades enjoy?
I'm not sure about the time off but I'm thinking maybe with the 10 day on 10 day off schedule you could work out a 30 on 30 off.. It would sure cost them less in flights. Are you on a waiting list for the Keyano class? I would like to hear what they say about job prospects immediately following the completion of the course.
