    My brother was a roughneck, working in the U.S. 10 below zero (wind factor) weather, days at a time, sometimes 1.5 - 2 days straight (alot of meth users in the biz). He was pulling about 50K a year on average. He was working too long, lost track of what he was doing and got very close to death, that's what made him quit.

    Totally depends.



    If you're an engineering major and land a job on a oil rig you'll be making serious bank.

    I made a lot of money in oilfield services as an engineer but it is hard, long work. The roughnecks and roustabouts were all on crack or meth due to the insane hours they had to do. THey worked 12+ hours days, 16 hour days most of the time for 2 weeks on. Then they got a week off. But you work everyday for 2 weeks at 16 hours usually knee deep in mud in extreme weather conditions doing backbreaking labor. Forget about having a normal life because it does not exist if you're a roughneck or roustabout. The people you have to deal with are dingy as *** too.

    trust me, they make a ton of money but it's not a "normal job". You'll easily put in 200 hours of back breaking work every 2 weeks you're on.

    X2. Extremely dangerous and labor intensive job. But you get paid good for it. I had a client when I was selling cars who did it. He was making 10K+ plus a month.

    True, I know engineers in foreign countries making 200,000/year straight outta school. But again, it's very very difficult work. Starting out on the job I lost 20 pounds in 2 months and I was eating as much as I could whenever I got a chance. Maybe got the opportunity to work out once every 2 weeks.

    Oil rig workers makes about 6 figure or more. They do not have a set schedule, your on call.


    They travel a lot and spend most of their time on oil rig field ( which is basically out of nowhere) They can be gone to work for 2 weeks, 1 month, 6 months etc.


    The hours is mostly a 12 hour shift. I have a friend whose a MWD Engineer he doesn't do any hard labor (that's basically the drillers job).In most cases he just basically stay in the oil rig trailer and do some paperwork. He makes about 100K a year.


    Plus you get gas mileage reimbursement and they pay for your hotel (or provide you, your own trailer). On top of that good benefits and bonus.

My brother knew guys still in their 20's who were missing fingers, etc.

    Doubt it.


    With the economy the way it is I'm sure there is a huge waitlist to even get considered.


    I wanted to try to work at the port in Long Beach but the only way to get a job is to enter a raffle and "win" a job. Odds were like 1 in 50.

    i doubt they will hire you at this time..and what company do you plan on working for?

    it depends on what company you work for the schedule..

    and drilling rigs or offshore or work over?

    workover rigs are the easiest they are usually 12-15 hrs..drilling rigs are mostly 24 hr shifts.

    Ive been in the oil field for the past 5 years out of tx, la and ok as a field engineer no matter position you hold you work in 12 hours shifts. Black gold it he most over exagerated show on tv and conditions are not neer as dangerous as people make it out to be. roughnecks make 18/hr but when you pull in over time working 14 on 14 off you can make about 50-60k but really only about 40k after taxes. The actual driller on the rig can make around 75k before taxes the tool pusher can make about 80k before taxes. the company man is usualy a contract hand they usualy make about 1000-1500k a day. As for the service hand which is what I do, I make 4250k month salary and 400 day rate with 40 perdiem and 100 dollar a day bonus if we run gamma. I basically sit in front of a computer and take surveys 12 hrs a day while drilling. basically I get paid to be away from home I dont have a set schedule and im always on call, sometimes i work 2 weeks out of a month and then have 2 weeks off or I might work 30 days straight get 2 days off and go back out. Right now things are slow so I have been getting about 14 days a month. And yes about 95% of the people you work with are either meth heads or right out of prison, but the money is there so im gonna keep on it for now.

    All depending what type of oil rig your on and what company.

    No education needed after grade 12, a first aid course and a h2s alive course.

    I worked on a service rig I started out at 25.00/hour with a 50 dollar tax free sub everyday. Along with a dollar an hour for safety pay which is payed out when spring break up comes.

    Service Rig ( picked up for work in a one ton crew truck)
    Rough Neck: 25-28/hour
    Derrik Hand: 29-37/hour
    Driller: 40-??/hour depending on experience..
    Push: not too sure.
    Consultant: 800+ per day

    Drilling Rig (includes a travel fee pay of 140 dollars tax free everyday to drive to work)
    Roughneck: 23-26/hour
    DH: 28-35/hour
    Driller: 45+
    Push: not sure
    Consultant day or night: 1000+

    Service Rigs depending which field your in (Im talking saskatchewan, Bonavist, Encana, Crescent Pont.. etc..)

    Every second weekend off.. or you work for 20 some days in a row with no days off.
    6:30- usually 5pm-6pm depending on what the hole is doing etc..

    Drilling Rig on a swing crew is 21 days on 7 off.

    You get paid good, but you work your ass off. And at this point, good luck getting on with an oil company. Unless you know someone or have tons of experience, theres a **** ton of ready/able workers out there, with no jobs. The oil industry has slowed down alot, well here in canada it has anyways (although saskatchewan is going through a bit of a boom) but still there is just simply no vacancies, and tons of experienced workers out of the job right now.

    This, and most of their recruiting ironically enough is done through the military now so REALLY good luck if you're just some kid trying to get on. (Theres a program called Troops To Roughnecks that trains you while still in service and some such.)
