RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I know 3 carpenters who were working in Anzac...This is why I wanted to come out there. They were staying at the Surmont 2 which looks like a killer camp. Flights paid from the isle, over $40 p/h base rate + lots of OT, etc.

One of my 3 buddies was on the 'A' shift...whole crew got laid off.
Two of my buddies still have a job 'B' shift.

There was over 40 positions for carpenters available 3 weeks ago in Anzac included camp,flights. Then they just disappeared.
From what I hear there is no loyalty what so ever and your just another face.
All 3 of my carpenter buddies (even the 2 with jobs) are looking and applying elsewhere.

Dog eat dog there, even if you have a trade...Never rely on the recruiters and always have a back up, and never wait no matter how much they try and spin it...put up or shut up!
