Here is an email I received from one of our regular viewers of oilgasjobscanada.com

” Thanks for all your information on finding the right oil job for me. Within 1 week of searching, I found the right job. It’s true, read all the contracts before you sign. The staff here are great and I am sure learning a lot. I am posted just North of Edmonton, only 2 small towns near by. I  have made lots of friends and I know I want to be back next year. One thing is so true, you earn your money! My first check was $1,510 for 2 weeks. Thanks again. “

If you are one of those lucky people and took the summer off from work or decided to wait until fall, now is the time to get your application in. In Canada the hiring process can take some time, so if you were planning on trying to work in Canada’s oil fields, you better start today. Most summer oil jobs end the last week of August, so the companies would like to start training people in the second week of August. When applying, make sure to read all contracts before you sign.

Although BP stated the well is closed and that no more oil is leaking into the gulf, they also mentioned more about the clean up work. BP now knows what they have to set aside to start paying locals for the massive clean up that covers 4 states. We will post the actual job posting from BP on our site. We are not affiliated with BP nor any other oil companies. We just post the best and highest pay information in this field.

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.

We talked to a young fellow who has been working in the oilfields for 5 summers now and asked what to expect on your first couple of days at work. ” It’s a different work attitude. Not sure where everything is and you can feel the fast pace. Once you settle into your job, they guys/gals make you feel like family. These guys will show you the ropes and make it fun to. It reminds me a lot like college. The best thing is your getting paid great money.” While talking I can see the fun pranks they pull on one person. One of their employees always misplaces theys keys to one of the trucks all the time, so they showed him a way of remembering. They tide a 9 foot beam to the end of the key and placed it in the ground. He climbed the beam to get the key down while staff and bosses cheered him on. It shows that you might not get into trouble always losing the keys, but they will sure try to help you remember them for next time. I have to admit is was quite funny.

It’s not all fun and games here, but I can see they need to make it fun to break up a long days of work. “We all look forward to our days off for sure. We try to go to the closest town for a couple of drinks and unwind. This is also a great way to get to know each person out side of work. To this day, I am still friends with a couple of guys I worked with 3 years ago and was invited to his wedding.”

It shows you working in the oil fields is not just about the great money you can make and all the benefits, but the people you meet and the experiences. Take your time when applying, and check out all job postings.

BP announced on Monday that they will be recruiting summer students to help with the oil spill clean up in the Gulf. The pay is to start around the $20.00 per hour US with NO benefits. They will supply accommodations, meals and uniform. This was release after BP went online to say they are “sorry” with what had happened. Now they are putting their money where it should go to, the clean up. If you are going to apply for a BP clean up, be careful of all the scams that are out there. They will never ask you to pay upfront for any training. There are about 50 companies trying to offer clean up work and they are not licensed. We will post all links of jobs available on our site.
