Its done at Cenovus in Christina Lake, a site I've worked at several times, probably one of the best sites out there, I like the company so much that I even thought about buying stocks there, if you can get a job at Cenovus, TAKE IT!

*first person interviewed in the video is a woman
**check out the gym
***the food at Cenovus is restaurant quality, sometimes better (steak and lobster nights)

I can confirm it.
I was staying in an Encana camp which is Cenovus. Food was really good. Saturday is Steak and Lobster Night. Rooms were nice and clean. Shared bathroom with your neighbor. Good gym as well.

We checked many drilling companies in Nisku today. No chance to get a job as a leasehand, even experienced hands with more than a year of experience don't get a job.
Everybody keeps saying come back next year.

My plan is now to take a course at the end of the year to make myself more valuable and work a sidejob in town.
On 22nd or so i will head back to Germany for Christmas and come back at the beginning of January to try my luck again
