RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Scotian,

I am interested in a safety watch or labourer job for the shut down season that'll give me flights and camps, like you mentioned in the first page of this thread. You know, 12 hour days of 3 weeks on, 1 week off, roughly ~$1500 a week after taxes, etc.

To land a job like that, do I need to bring my ass to Alberta first? Do you know if companies like CEDA or Clean Harbours hire over the phone? And with those jobs, will there be gaps in between jobs that I would need a permanent place in AB? I'm wondering if I can keep my base in BC and still be able to get/maintain jobs like that.

Thanks in advance.
