    Ya fran they sent my AAIT papers 4 weeks ago today. Waiting for that to come back and then an offer. How come u only sent yours today?
    El Diablo I think it's 42ph. There is camp work which is what I want but some guys want the in town work....looks like the in town work is starting sooner than the camp work.
    I did send everything of weeks ago but they asked for me to courier original app form, my certificate and a copy of my passport, have you done that??

    I think i was told the rate for the work in edmonton is 40 dollars an hours and its 50 hours a week so with the 10 hours over time a it works out at 2200 dollars a week before tax. I pressume there would be better money for the camp work

    40*40=1600
    10*60=600

    40.87 an hour plus holiday pay I think they were offering And 2 dollars an hour more for camp work but obviously more over time . Anyone got word there heading over end of the month?

    alot of work here at the moment for tarpon.im in rocky mountain house working away on rotation 3on 1 off.not as bad as it seems.fairly handy work if you can do conduit,ladder and termination to panels.no one standing over you cracking the whip.money is good plus you get a living out allowance.


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    That sounds good. Exactly what I'm after applying for. Do u know if they're looking for more sparks for 21/7 on that job?

    well this job im on is finishing next friday then a week off.but if you want to do that shift all the time you can get it.work is plentiful.some guys fly home on their week off as its cheaper for them than booking a hotel/meals etc.

    Same situation. Partner and 18 month old and broke. Best thing u can do is get AAIT approval and contact any company in the alberta area for work in the oil sands. If u have AAIT and experience in industrial your in. Rotations are not always ideal but usually the money is around 2000 after tax pw with all your food and lodge paid so u don't spend a penny.


    Hi there just wondering is that 2000 euros or Canadian dollars ??

    What sort of conduit are you using, is it the rigid stuff like here or is it the emt stuff with the broom handle bending machine? If its the emt stuff is it handy to get the hang off?

    its aluminium and its handier here.motorised threader and broom handle benders.you just have to get used to the accessories they use plus they call them by the code number of the item.

    Last question! Did you bring any tools with you or did you just by some over there to get you started?

    i brought some with me in a tool box and bought some when i got here.tools were free to bring over as they were very lightweight.

    Company supply any tools?

    no but you can use power and battery drills and they give you overalls/coat and ppe.the guys generally let you use their tools till you can get all your own.you will get a tool list before you come over in your contract.

  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22
