RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Guys I've been in Edmonton for 3 days so far. People are really nice here! they are so friendly and helpful. I applied to 2 companies today, but it took forever without a car and a lot of industrial areas are impossible to reach without one! You should definitely get a friend who has a car to drive you around to apply or someone because there is no public transit to ALOT of industrial areas and also the surrounding counties. This makes walk in applications and potential walk in interviews impossible. Wasting my day trying to get to sherwood park with public transit to drop off an application was frustrating so I faxed it instead. On a better note I walked through an industrial area and theres signs EVERYWHERE that were hiring. As I was taking the bus around town I saw a lot of places with big hiring signs.
