Working on a drilling rig is no desk job – it can be loud and dirty with plenty of exposure to the elements. It’s also a rewarding career with high earning potential, and a work schedule that’s far from your everyday nine to five with only three weeks’ vacation a year.
If you’re considering a career on the rigs and want to know about each position, this blog is for you. Read on as we take you through crew basics, describe rig positions, and explain why Trinidad is the employer of choice among new and experienced hands.
A typical rig crew has between five to seven hands, but, depending on the complexity of the rig or the operation, Trinidad has crewed up to nine if a customer requests it. As the saying goes, “there ain’t no rest for the wicked,” drilling rigs operate 24 hours a day, but working hours and the number of crews depend on each operation.
Why choose Trinidad?
Choosing which company to work for usually comes down to which one will provide the best life for you and your family. We’ll make it really simple for you: Trinidad runs safe and well-trained rig crews on some of the biggest, baddest and newest drilling rigs in the industry. Oh, and our rigs are more active than most (so you’ll be busy).
