RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I'll just add a few things that I picked up to scotians post.

Yes, safety is #1. Everytime you step on site you have to do a test on their orientation. You'd be really dumb if you fail that.

Driving. I told my partner that I'll only drive the truck on the highway. We got big GMCs with a toolbox in the back so you can't see what's behind you and I just can't do that.

Confined Space. If you are claustrophobic do research about your job. I've been in a 15 inch pipe and I literally had to be pulled out by my legs because I couldn't move myself.

Connections. Yep, if you know someone, you're 90% in. Pretty much my whole company has been friends since a long time.

@Big Country That guy is off work at the moment, I'll talk to him when he gets back.
