But most make around 200K (if not more) with overtime, and bonuses. As for them looking for 2500 3rd classes, I highly doubt it was that many.

Cenovus isn't even one of the higher paying FIFO companies. Suncor Firebag, Conocco, Stat oil and MEG all pay more that I know of.

Are you a 3rd? Where about do you work?
Nah, I'm not a power engineer. I do GIS Mapping for a surveying company that deals with oil & gas. My dad is a 1st class in Ottawa, and is the president of the IPE regional branch there. He was here for a conference, and they talked about how desperate they are here for power engineers.
