My buddy and I went there and pretty much all the rig companies were saying that drilling season is almost done and now they're just doing shutdowns/maintenance. A couple of them said to call back every so often to check and see if there is work, some said that they'll be hiring again around earlier summer time, so May-ish, and the others said they won't be hiring again until Oct/Nov.

So for those of you looking to get work on the rigs, I'd wait until May.

Guys I'm gonna point this out, there's MORE than just the rigs for work. Wink Right now the City of Edmonton is also hiring over 100 bus drivers AND Firefighters. In 4 years you'll be earning close to a six-figure salary as a Firefighter. <--this type of skill is also valuable for oil companies.

Even EMR's are in demand for an onsite presence for oil companies. So keep ALL options open. Banana <--I just like dancing bananas! Wink
