RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Just to give any engineers an idea of what to expect if you're considering the oil sands:

I'm starting work in January (right out of university) at one of the major producers in fort mac. Salary is 91k, plus additional 6-8k in safety bonus, plus a 20% (18k) annual bonus based on a 3 year contract, plus company funded pension and 2 company matching savings programs, plus 6 weeks vacation, PLUS 30k signing bonus right now (based on 3 year contract) plus 200-400 hours overtime expected (15-30k extra)

Total compensation works out to about 115-120k + overtime.

This is standard 40hr/week job, and they bus you from your house to work everyday (for free) in a coach bus with internet.
