Hi im going to Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta to work as a leasehand on a drilling rig. My first time on a rig, its 27.50 an hour plus $140 for hotel but i live 60km away so im thinkin to just drive back but its gonna be hard after 12 hour shift. Btw im gonna be working 20 DAYS ON AND 10 days off, my girl is 4 months pregnant so its gonna be hard.

Any advice for a black man on a rig?lol.

Ps iv been buyin winter gear for rig work, fu*king expensive. One helly hansen sweat pants is $200, fu*kin longjohn cost me $60


Yea it beats living in montreal getting paid 11.50 hour. But MTL was too much fun, Alberta sucks bigtime but the money is here

I'm getting paid 34 bucks an hour doing industrial piling working with a drill rig in the mine. 10 hour days, anything over 10 is double time, weekends are double time. With all the double time it works out to being 47 bucks an hour. Benefits, pension. Union Job, slack as fu*k.
When you work you work but there is so much safety around here that you gotta take your time to be safe. Our contractor hasn't got our new 2013 mine driving cards yet so we haven't been able to work. Still getting paid though lol sh*t is hilarious. Spend all day at the shop watching movies and getting paid. Today is day 5 of doing fu*k all .

fu*k it im leaving for alberta soon, tired of not making money anymore...


as soon as i get my drivers license im out there


btw why do they give you 140??

that wont even cover a night at most hotels




I dunno as far as i know nost companies give $140, i did find a cheap motel for $80. If they put you in camp you get $60, room food included, as far as i heard they feed you real good, steaks and sh*t.

holy sh*t i thought 100k would be offered right out of school but rarely.

which school are you going to? are you going for your undergrad in petro engineering?

that oil money is ridiculous i was trying to find out exactly how much a full petro engineering would make working out in the middle east ???? lol
The Middle East companies won't even look at you if you don't have 10 years experience. I'm moving to Louisiana to work offshore in 12 days i'll post videos after 1 or 2 years doing it. - Keith Clark

OP I'm from quebec..... Man sh*t I could leave asap if needed lol, make a n*gga say fu*k this BA right now...
Before september I was able to do 3 sets of 55 pushups with the fourth one likve 60-70 depending on how hard I pushed myself. I can still do over 30 tho(school made me weak lmao)
I'm 6'1. 178lbs, was 190 before school started and my finals happened so lol...
I got a temporary license tho I can drive with it just that I got like a limited number of points until next september
Never taken any drugs in my life 22 years old.
What are my chances
Damnit if I can get that type of cash then sh*t I might just say fu*k school or wait till 2014 till I get my BA and then head there...(just to be safe and im almost done anyways)
sh*t I'd do it for a small amount of time just to pay off my student loans(10-12k for my bachelor lmao i love quebec cheap a.ss tuition fees)
Yo dude, you sound like you are in the right mind frame to get this done. Seriously, just put the paperwork together and make it happen. Its 2013, NO EXCUSES!!

You're speaking to a future MD (Class of 2015), so I'm in the no excuses business all-day everyday. Get it done and make something happen right now.

Yo i drove to alberta from montreal alone took me three days, came here for the rigs. what u gotta do is make sure u gotta place to stay and a car. U really need a vehicle here, then take first aid and h2s alive course. Dont take first aid in quebec its pointless. It took me a while to get called out but thers tons of jobs here, rent is quite expensive comparing with montreal. I pay $1200 a month for 2 bedroom apt. Im starting in 2 days on the rigs, gonna go from making $350 a week in montreal to makin close to $500 a day in alberta. Just dont get caught up in the drugs, everyone is on coke here

Props to you man. Making grown man moves and you will win.

On another note, I was just speaking to one of my friends. I don't understand why some people would not just work on the rigs up there instead of going to the military. People need to expand their horizons.
