Shell/Albian were recruiting in Saskatoon today. I went to the info session and it seems like a pretty lucrative opportunity even though the cost of living is high.
I was hoping to work in electrical maintenance as opposed to construction and according to the recruiter that shouldn't be a problem.

I was wondering if anyone from the oil sands has an opinion on which of the big companies is best to work for. Suncor, Syncrude, CNRL, Shell etc.
Any tips on moving/securing housing would be helpful as well. (Best neighborhoods to live in, which ones to avoid?)

Appreciate any thoughts or advice
