North Dakota Oil Jobs Salaries question by : I am looking to get a oil job in North Dakota!! Can someone read this and answer my questions PLEASE!!!!!?
1. I am 18 years old, and will be 19 this summer. What are the age requirements to work on the oil field?
2. Is it true that workers get on average $ 120,000 a year salary?
3. Is it true that they get free room “man camps” and food?
4. Is it true that workers work 2 weeks on and then 2 weeks they get off? If so is there an option to work everyday except for some occasional off time to make more money?
5. I am from NYC and am looking to move there to get the oil job, and I do not have a car. Is it essential to have a car there or are there some sort of car service companies? If it is essential to have a car then what do people who are just moving do when they get off planes?
6. I have been looking all over google and yahoo trying to apply for these jobs, but it always leads to a dead end. For some reason I can never reach a web page that has an online application. Can anyone please tell me WHERE I CAN FILL OUT ONLINE APPLICATIONS FOR THIS JOB? Specific websites that allow this would be ideal?
I know these are a lot of questions, but I think yahoo folks can answer them well. Anyone who answers these questions truthfully has my sincerest gratitude. Thank you.

This should help get you on your way. Age requirements probably depend on the job, but most are 18. You’d probably be looking at entry level either way.
Salary includes tons of overtime. $ 15-30/hr, 80+hours a week.
Some companies have contracts with mancamps, some pay the entire thing, some pay a portion.
Some are 2 weeks on, 2 off, some are 1/1, some are 3/1. You will want the time off or you will burn out.
Transportation is tougher up here than housing. Try www.northdakotashuttle.com at some point, they don’t seem to be up yet but are advertising on Craigslist. Cars are a good thing but people are doing without.
Keep trying. Don’t come up here until the winter is officially over, and don’t come without a place to stay lined up. Good luck.Posted by North Dakota Oil Jobs
