I have contacted them on about 4 occasions with emails and CV's but never had a reply.....maybe they just think I'm a tosser so didn't bother.....

Would be interesting to see if anyone has had any contact with them to see what they say...they are in BC aint they which at present has no PNP route for Truckers...they do look VERY VERY appealing tho your right.

If anyone does get a reply then yes.....they thought I was a tosser.

What looks appealing about them? (not a criticism - just didn't see much on their web site, which looked differnt to all the other companies)

Do they offer day work, or is it nights out?

Their western office is in BC but they have one in Calgary and Ontario.

I just thought they look as if they have put a bit of effort into the website which may suggest they are a serious about what they do. They seem to have new (ish) rig's, and they talk about being one of the safest at what they do. And their employees are all trained to respond to hazardous material spill emergencey's etc.

It doesnt mention anything about pay, or hours but i guess you would have to get in touch for that, which it seems near impossible to a few of you

PNP means Provincial Nomination Programme. Its means that a Province (say AB, SASK,PEI,NS) will sponser you if you find employment.

Why? Can't we live in SK and work in AB? Just thought it would make it a bit more affordable for us.

If you work in Alberta and your PNP is Alberta - you have to live in Alberta.

Oh Thanks, I have asked this before, what the hell is a pnp? Maybe I'm being a bit thick. Alberta would possibly mean us getting a small mortgage to buy the kind of house we'd really like, but what the heck.

I've answered this question in another post of yours. PNP means Provincial Nomination Programme. Its where a Province say Alberta or Prince Edward Island sponser you to work within their province. To do this, you need an offer of employment.

Hope this helps.
