Rough Neck (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – April 27, 2013
Pros: crew cab, paid for fleights in and out of job site, free lunches with camp job. good pay cheques
Cons: long hours, stressful, minimal to no breaks some day.
come in connect pipe, and clean rig, make meals for driller and help derrickhand mix. or trip out or in which is all you do on your full 12 hour shifts exceept for flow check.
hardest part would be the weather, working in -45 isnt considered fun. most co-workers were good, I get along with pretty much everyone. some where mean to my dummy roughneck – more... and made him cry but i kept him ina a normal state of mind and didn't let anyone pick on him for no reason, I stick up for my crew, out there its our second family from home.
Best part is either sleep or coming home :D – less
