    Lol I give you less than three months with trican in estevan. You will have at least 2 offers a month from gibsons and johnsons to work for more.

    Gibsons does fluid hauling, less labor intensive than trican too.

    That's ok if you want to sit on you ### and do nothing all day at a dead end job. If you want to climb the ladder, get some exercise and learn something then that's not the was to go.

    Agreed.

    I am an equipment operator and worker first, driver second.

    There is more opportunity if you stay with a company than always chasing the almighty dollar at every turn.

    The employer I am parting ways with has been my employer for almost 11 years. I have gone from a general labourer all the way up to site supervisor. I wish to attain more than what he can offer right now, so I am parting ways respectfully.

    Just a thought.
     
    peted and oilfield Thank this.

    How on earth does fluid hauling constitute a dead end job or sitting on your butt? The fact is that trican lowballs people for the job market in se Saskatchewan. Most people out here can get either more per hour or ease into a commission job where they don't have to work 60 hours a week to get that money. Alberta boys they send out here tend to change companies if they stay too long. And gibsons, johnson or any of the murrey group companies are hardly small dead end companies.

    Think about it. Hook up hose, open valve, turn pto on, sit on ### in truck till trailer full (1/2 hour) close valve, unhook hose, turn pto off. Sit on ### and drive to next location, repeat. Boy that exciting. For As many trucks that are out there how fast do you think you will climb the corporate ladder. Not very fast as the majority of the trucks doing this around the province are lease operators so you would have to quit the o/o then move into the office.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you have a hate on for Trican. When ever someone posts something about Trican, you have to put them down.
