    I've heard they don't bother contacting employers anymore. Cheers for all the info lads. Ill post again if I hear word back.


    Not so sure if this info is correct. Good luck anyway.

    We're all in this psy-op together.🤨

    I presume your out in alberta working as an electrician then? All the lads I know out there had no calls to previous employers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 27 Beancounter 2013


    Any feedback from anybody who has started working with Tarpon in the last few months? I had an interview with them last week and can't find out an awful lot about them (though anything I see seems to be fairly ok).


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭Calgary22


    They seem to have a huge website and are always taking on people dunno if that's good or bad. there operating out of the cnrl horizan oil sands a lot of lads are placed there. the jobs they came to Ireland for is a day job i think no camp work and you will be based in e-town.

    Ya they don't seem to be offering rotation which doesn't suit me so ill be turning down any offer outside of rotation. Only received one email off them since which is pissing me right off......

    I am a Quantity Surveyor and was speaking to them about a Calgary based position, so not the same terms as the lads looking for rotation. I've seen a good few posts from guys who were going to work for them, but then they stopped posting!! Where have they gone? Are the oil sands THAT remote?!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    Sounds like something out of the movie hostel. Hardly that remote!! They're probably just hard at it!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 27 Beancounter 2013


    Johnnyryan22 have you had any luck with other companies offering rotation?


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭Calgary22


    The oil-sands are remote but all camps have internet etc. i suppose people got the information they wanted and then just stopped using boards. there is loads of companys on the ground that offer rotation but you will have to be on the ground in Calgary or Edmonton i would imagine you might get it hard to get rotation from Ireland. unless the companys at a jobs expo etc.


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    Ya I've had two offers. One this morning actually. The other one requires AAIT also and I'm waiting on that to come through.

    It takes about 8 weeks to come back once they receive it.im out of my time years but another guy with us is only out of his time and just used his trade cert.We are in the SE of the city. handy for going to the office and the courses you do.You have to hire a car aswell.

    Last year there no chance of getting in with just a trade cert and no post- apprenticeship experience. They were very strict on 72 months AND 8775 hours experience and called FÁS and all employers for verification of work experience.

    Looks like all sorts will be coming over now (house bashers and all :eek:).

    We're all in this psy-op together.🤨

    Do they still call fas?? Didn't know they did that..........
    Nothing to worry about just imagine fas take all year to respond.......hoping to go soon


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    Flood gates are open I'd say. Can't see house bashers being of any benefit to a company in oil sands...... Any domestic guys here get an offer?


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭Calgary22


    yea they changed the rules all you need now is your fetac trade cert which is great:)
