    Unsure.

    Equipment is old and haggard. May work ok, but impression is not good. Who wants to operate antiques? Do consultants want relics on location?

    I heard they bought 100+ pumps for GP but mothballed them because they couldn't man up the equipment. If so, that's just incompetent management.

    Trican had tons of equipment sitting in GP, it's all going to Pennsylvania and somewhere else down south, can't remember where.

    Hi jamesg. After 8 months of quiet, Trican started sending postings. I hope they find the people they need.

    Other than the deadwood, the entitled, and the lazy, people who have plenty to offer will get fixed up. Companies are hiring, or they'll hire when they see talent and experience that is worth bringing on in spring ready to ramp up.

    Hey guys, just curious if there's any oil hauling companies or class 1 related companies out there that hire new'ish drivers even if it's in Saskatchewan.

    Little update:

    Did all of my safety courses (First aid, H2S Alive), did the OSSA and CSTS along with CNRL orientation, TGB, WHMIS and another huge bunch of online courses, policies and certificates. Followed by a drug/alcohol/hearing/vision and mask fitting test the next day. Bought all the necessary PPE for the job in Lloyd. Starting my infield training this Saturday. Spent quite a bit of dollars in the last couple of days for all this stuff. Now anxious to earn it back. :)
