Anyone work at the Alberta oil sands?
I've been throwing around the idea to go out and live the experience. I hear its tough work but I think I'm ready to take on a challenge.
Has anyone worked there?

super bad for your health....great pay though, you might as well smoke 1,000 cigarettes a day. The real term before it was called oil sands was "tar sands"...very unhealhy to be around. Not like drilling for natural gas or oil.

I suppose I worded that incorrectly.... "Alberta oil industry"

Great experience! At least give it a shot, do you have any experience in the oil and gas industry?

Nope, but I'm not stranger to getting my hands dirty and learning new things. Also a 2nd year automotive apprentice so if the rigs don't work there is a huge demand for mechanics out there.
Just figure if I go out there for 1-2 years I will be able to pay off all my equipment for my business in full. I'll come back and have close to zero start up costs. Plus the addition of the experience of living out West on my own.

My friend's family own a majority portion of it, I could ask them how what work is like next time i see them- although I doubt they rarely if ever have worked on the field themselves.

If you are still looking for rig work we have been hiring like crazy. We are on the drilling side not the service side. 12 hour days 20 on 10 off.
