A Challenging Work Environment
Travel to and living in remote areas is a necessity.
You will be travelling to and from rigs in very remote areas of Canada. Some rigs move every few days while other rigs stay in the same location for months. You will either live in drilling camps or in lodgings located in a town close to the worksite.
The physical work can be exceptionally demanding.
You will work long hours, often under exposure to the elements. You will also be required to work with heavy equipment, climbing stairs and lifting weights in excess of 80 pounds.
Days are busy and long.
Rigs operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A typical work schedule is a three-crew rotation with each crew working a 12 hour shift. Crews rotate from 7 days on the day shift to 7 days on the night shift, followed by 7 days off.
