What would the excellent working conditions mean? haha

The position they're hiring for is pretty much what I'm doing now. Depending on the type of service rig, they operate all year-round. Due to road bans and such, the mobile service rigs are the ones that get shut down but there are permanent service rigs that still need hands to keep them going. Technically, the starter position on a service rig is a trainee, so you'll be one above that position, and boy do they make you work.

45 hrs per week? Seems like some pretty lax hours, probably due to the shutdown.

The weather's starting to get warmer here, hence their take on 'excellent working conditions', i.e. no extreme cold or heat. Though you may be walking through some thick mud, I guess that depends on the temperature around May time.

Anyway, apply if you haven't already. They say some experience required but I started green, so you should be fine.
