Well I guess so I have seen Rigid trucking companies. You need to view the links in the Blue bit at the top this will give you the info you need.
So Class 2 is now Cat C in the new licence (well they have been on the go for a few years now so not really new)

Guaranteed $210.00 per day. Working 24 days on, 4 off, but plenty of overtime if wanted.

In addition, every drivers receives a Fort Mcmurray Living Allowance of $1050.00 per month

In total that equates to around $70-80k per year without OT. Some of the top seniority drivers are on $100-$130k per year.

PM me if you would like any details.
Hi I would be very grateful if you could pass on any info.
I am very interested in finding driving work in Canada. I have bus & truck licence. At the moment I am driving passenger bus in Denmark. I am a Brit who's tired of Denmark.

Popeye

Lads
The original poster on here (Oilsands) hasnt posted since May, so I do not think you will recieve an answer on this one. Try reading the must read at the top of the page (the blue area)
Also you will find loads of info on this forum and the wiki.
Happy hunting!

I've heard many rumours of Fort McMurry regarding living quarters and living expenses. Sure it sounds like a lot of money, and for anywhere else in Alberta it's excellent, but seeing as there's a huge quantity of money being banded around, living expenses go through the roof, (locals charge what the want for goods and services).
Please tell me I've been talking to the wrong people - Brother-in-law and my sister in Edmonton, who have been there for 3 years.
Dude,... theres lots of people inquired at the gold streets of Fort mac, from our place, when they eventually get fed up of them messing you around. I am no expert, but from what i am reliably informed from the very many people i have spoke to and delt with, fort mac is a den of eniquaty (spelt wrong, but you get the jist) and an expencive one at that. I have a friend who pays over $1000pw for his bord at a hotel/motel and this is not covering his food and stuff. he has now bought a trailer to tow behind his truck, as the living costs are so great, even with the big money he is on, hes not left with any more than someone flipping burgers at A and W! He works on the lines and wells, and runs a three week on, one of rota. But he does spend 3 days out of his wek off traveling back to pincher creek and back. Fort mac is cold and in the middle of nowhere!

Just to mention, though im sure its only in some circles, and in the camps theres quite a drug and alcohol issue too. I have a friend who had to leave the area, due to its out reaching influence, and she managed a dennys or something!

In fairness though, im sure the latter is entirelyin some social circles only.

Hope this is of some use?

It is through a Company called Diversified who are actually based up at Fort McMurray - I wouldn't hold out for this one though, I contacted them by telephone after not hearing anything back after several emails shortly after Oilsands advertised the job and spoke to, from what I can gather, is their HR/Ops guy who as soon as I said I was intending to move to Canada informed me that they "were not hiring any foreign drivers".

But who knows.... maybe things have changed
