Accepting Applications for:
Class 1A and 3A drivers - Semi Vac, Pressure Truck, Flush By (Lloydminster, St. Walburg)
Heavy Duty Journeyman Mechanic (Lloydminster)
We run top of the line equipment. We pay top wages with overtime after 8 hours. Drivers are home every night. All Drivers must take training in First Aid, H2S, WHMIS, TDG (Transportation of Dangerous Goods), Fatigue Managment and GODI (General Oilfield Driver Improvement) as well as specific oil company orientations prior to starting their first day of work. Any new employees must be orientated with our company policies. We follow all transport laws, which includes 14 hour days maximum.
Typical days are 10-14 hours. Our schedules are 7-3-7-4 and 7 on 7 off. Occasionally, we accomodate for other schedule patterns. There are currently many opportunities for working extra days if you want them.
All oilfield workers must wear fire retardant workwear, hard hats, safety glasses, steel toed work boots and gloves. Oilfield personnel are not allowed any facial hair other than a moustache. No stubble.
Working in the oilfield is much different than truck driving in general. Our people are Operators who service oilwells using the trucks. There is a lot of getting in and out of the truck, and we generally drive no more than 1-2 hours at a time. We work from job to job, which can be anywhere from 2-14 jobs in a day. Each job can involve hooking and unhooking hoses, loading the truck with oil or water and using this oil or water to perform a service at the next site. Some trucks haul sand or sandy fluids away to disposal sites. We often work with other people to complete jobs.
When we do our work, it is mostly outside, so you must be willing to work in all weather conditions as well as extreme temperatures that can range from -30C to +30C. Rain, snow or shine, our trucks are on the road, 7 days a week. Oilfield work can be dirty. When working with crude oil, there is a good chance it can get on your gloves, boots and coveralls, and just about anywhere else if you are not careful! Dirty workwear must be profesionally drycleaned. (We pay for the cleaning)
Drivers communicate via two-way radio, cell phone and text. All our work is coordinated by a central dispatch. Dispatch is responsible for booking and coordinating. Generally, drivers find out about the next days work between 5 and 9pm.
Because of the manual aspects of the job and the long hours we work, you should be in good health and be fit. Company drivers perform minor maintenance on the trucks which includes brake adjustments, oil changes, greasing and truck wash.
All drivers must be team players and be willing to train others.
WE DO A PRE-EMPLOYMENT DRUG TEST. No exceptions. If you fail, you cannot work here.
Foreign Workers: Due to the high demand for our services, and the skill level required, we are always looking for qualified personnel to join our team. From time to time, we hire from abroad. In order to do this, we must first be granted a permit called a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) from the Federal Government that entitles us to hire foreign workers. When we hold a valid LMO, it is always for a set number of job vacancies. To be eligible for hire, Foreign workers must hold an equivalent to a Class 1A drivers license. Foreign workers use the LMO along with a job contract and offer of employment to get a WORK PERMIT, which is what you need to be legal to work in Canada. Reading English and Speaking fluent English is mandatory. Writing skills need only be moderate. Moving to Canada temporarily or in hopes of gaining permanent residency is a big decision that involves not only you, but your family.
