Does anyone know if there are any crane or rig operator trainee jobs? I saw that Halliburton had one on indeed.com, but when I went to the company website, I couldn't find the listing. My husband would do well at this I think, because he's operated most all heavy equipment safely for years now, and he has had his CDL for years too. Do they hire crane operators or riggers much? Anyone know?

Borsheim Crane in Williston, also Sterling Crane - they have an office in Williston but work all over the country. I know Sterling was looking for riggers recently. Lots of hours.

I know the guys that run the cranes at both places, I can ask if they have a training program, but I don't think they do. Good money for sure just don't think a lot of people are cut out for it.

Me too and you're right, no training program, just throw you out there and see if you can handle it. No housing to my knowledge - should mention that. Both pretty good companies though. The old ball and chain has been known to do some rigging for Sterling on his days off.

LOL, the old ball and chain, lol, love that! I do believe Sterling could possibly have some housing coming up, or a place to park campers. I might know you then if you know some of the people too

Does anyone have any idea how much riggers/crane operators make an hour?

That would be great! I'd sure appreciate it. More options is always a good thing. *G*

Hey, I was wondering if you have noticed something...have you noticed that the trucking companies are beginning to offer less pay per hour? Are they beginning to get glutted with applicants? Also, I thought maybe I noticed they are using not having oilfield experience as a means of bartering down their hourly offerings.

Several months ago I spoke with one of the guys at Borsheim Crane about these positions. He said that you need to be a certified crane operator and take a test to get the certification.

Well I talked to one crane operator from Sterling Crane and he said same thing as HighPlainsDrifter73, you have to be certified already to be hired on as a crane operator. It's not an easy job, but pretty intense and can be high stress too from what I have seen and heard from others.
