    Default Goodpay? Worth a shot?

    drywallschool.com

    offshore painter.....

    Wages for offshore painters will typically run from 45k to 58k a year.

    Work Duties...

    Perform all duties assigned during deck/maintenance operations.
    Proceed safely, and correct or notify persons of any unsafe acts and/or conditions.
    Attend pre-tour, post tour, and special operations and weekly safety meetings.
    Rig maintenance such as chipping, scraping, painting, scrubbing, and cleaning.
    Assist in keeping the deck free of all unnecessary tools and equipment.

    sounds like pretty easy money compaired to building sites!and sh**e pay.

    ANYONE GIVEN IT A SHOT?

    A mate of mine worked on oil rigs in the 1980's and I vaguely remember him saying when they worked inside the legs below sea level, they were encased inside large pressurised bubbles doing all the work. The upside of this was that they could only work for short periods and had to decompress on the way back up. The money was good, and so was the pension.

    Remember this information was discussed over a beer or two about 20 years ago so my second hand recollection of events may be fading.

    I doubt you will find a better offer sites right now, however the health and safety will be tighter although you are getting paid by the hour so it wouldn't matter........ and considering the insurance you have to stump up for on that fast car of yours you profiled on Facebook, whats holding you back? Go for it.

    cheers for the reply alex. it seems like its worth a shot just got to save for the sea survival and fire safety courses. it would be a change even for a wee while just to get onto doing something diffrent instead of stuck working with jackasses on building sites. deffo going to give it a shot surely it cant be as bad as building site + more better pay

    This photo was taken during hurricane bawbag last Thursday from a North Sea oil rig. If you have the bottle to do this for a job, then you are worth every penny mate.
