Well, we’re looking. Right now, Trinidad’s Canadian division is hiring experienced hands to work on our growing team.
3 things Trinidad looks for in job applicants
1. Do you have the right experience, skills and values?
All positions on a rig other than Leasehand require previous oilfield experience. When Trinidad receives an application, the first thing we look at is your work history.
“We look at the candidate’s total rig experience, experience by position and experience by rig type,” Berube explained.
When evaluating applications, we’re trying to find people whose values match Trinidad’s values. People who are . . .
2. Are you available to travel?
Trinidad’s rigs operate all over Western Canada, often in remote areas, so if a candidate is willing to travel to work, they have a better chance of landing a job.
“Candidates who are capable of working both non-camp jobs and camp jobs will have the most opportunity for work, as they can be considered for any job that we have available,” said Berube, who added that Trinidad currently has some openings for fly-in positions.
3. Are you ready to go?
Trinidad consistently obtains a high utilization rate, which means our teams have more consistent work year round. However, factors such as lifted road bans, high oil prices and demand for our services mean that we may need people on short notice.
“Since rig work is seasonal and jobs tend to come up last minute, it is essential that we are able to contact our candidates quickly,” explained Berube. “Individuals who answer calls or return messages quickly will have the greatest opportunity.”

3. High-performance rigs run by high-performance teams
“Because of these factors, Trinidad is able to obtain and retain work for our rigs, which turns into more work for our field employees,” said Berube.
