Another new restaraunt...also read in a Minnesota paper that Cowboys Jacks bar & grill is opening up in the Trapppers kettle restaraunt. It is a Minnesota chain with restaraunts in the Twin Cities metro area and St. CLoud. This will be their first outside of Minnesota. Also saw an add in the Williston Classifieds for new workers, managers, etc... for a new McDonald's in Williston. Is Williston getting a 2nd McDonalds??? They need one!

What classifieds?

Thank you so much for taking the time to clarify all that for me and others that might read this! Greatly appreciated.

So true! When I lived in Alberta most of my job offers took place while getting together with people.

I'm over 6'4" and used to be able to lift and stab the pickup subs in the drill collars without using a winch so the drillers loved me for speeding up the trip times. I'd need to work up to doing that again now though. I always worked on
triples with the deepest vertical holes to 18,000 feet deep in north western Alberta. As a former assistant driller it sounds like my chances are good.

I wish I could get up there right away but hopefully in a few weeks.

Thanks so much![/quote]

You shouldn't have much trouble getting a job here. Throw that Alberta oilpatch talk in and you'll have plenty of offers. Online apps would be a useful tool for a guy with your experience.

Here's a link to who the drilling companies are in ND. Listed under "RIG".

I saw the Buffalo Wild Wings add there and the new McDonald's a couple Sundays ago. The McDonald's add indicated it was for a new store and required all new employees and mgrs (so am guessing it was for a 2nd McDonald's...probably going to be located in the new Sand Creek Retail center is my guess)

I've been looking into using the Amtrak after a 12 hr night shift. Get to the station, sleep on the train and wake up in places like Glacier National Park well rested and ready to go. It will likely only get busier.

Folks, go to the Community thread....check the publications.....use those like a tool....the menu's on those publications are invaluable!! Some of the links are not working from the post....just copy and paste...well worth the extra efforts. Plenty of job resources, just doing a regular web search for oil field jobs...Minot, Williston or wherever gets you lots of links. Be proactive...if you need more help just msg.

Love, love seeing all the rumors out there.

Jan, didn't find your "update" thread, maybe didn't look hard enough, LOl.

Well update on my husband, after a long search on my efforts, he is now in Williston working in construction. He actually almost got a "suspicious" job offer from a oil company out of Killdeen?, may not have said it right, but the crazy temp agency out of Dickinson is crazy and played a ton of games with him. Then out of the blue, a local nursery from St. Cloud, MN whom my hubby knew a guy from there, got him a job instantly with a construction place from MN doing a project in Williston. He has free room and per diem, working a lot of hours. He will be there until November and with hopes of course of searching there for a oil company when the work ends.

Now that hubby is "safe" and sound in Williston, haha, we are heading back to AK in few days for the summer.

SCAM ALERT....Saw this on the WDAZ news this am. Some Verizon customers are evidently receiving fake phone bills in emails. Please make sure you are paying your real bill.
It wasn't up yet on the news webpage when I posted, but it should be later today.

Just wanted to be clear about my newest 'rumor' .

Heard this tidbit yesterday:

Buffalo Wild Wings in Minot has been named their NUMBER 1 restaurant in their chain. All employees will get a bonus (at the time I heard this RUMOR, the person who shared it with me was unsure of the bonus amounts), also, all servers will get a $2.00 an hour raise (most servers at the Minot restaurant were about $2.00 an hour or more above minimum already - according to the RUMOR).
