When your searching for oil and gas jobs in Alberta, it is good to know all your facts before you sign on that dotted line. In Alberta alone there are over 50 oil companies looking for workers and with the great pay it is sometimes tough to find. Most companies start the payout at $22.00 per hour for a simple job as driving workers to their job site. Be prepared for long days and hours, but the money is GREAT!
We know some sure tips on getting hired with these companies. Make sure you read the full contract before you sign. There are companies that only pay overtime if your marker has been met. Listen and talk to others that are in this field. The company that has the most call backs are the ones you want to work for. This means they treat their staff great and offer excellent benefits.
When applying we have one major tip for you. Never tell them in the interview that you are a family man/women. They tend to not pick these types of people because they know that 60% of the time these people won’t be back. The oil companies make more money when they don’t have to retrain. I know, oil companies need more money. Certain careers like the family type, but not this one. I should know, I was once in charge of going through application.
The bottom line is yes, there are lots of oil and gas jobs in Alberta. If you know where to look you can make some good cash.
