All work on oil and gas rigs is physically demanding, and requires the ability to concentrate well on the job at hand, in all types of weather. Rig work is not a 9-to-5, weekday-only job; weekend work is commonplace, as is overtime. Onshore rigs may be run in several eight-hour, or two 12-hour shifts per day, with one or two roughnecks or roustabouts per shift, typically. Meals, work camp lodging or a housing allowance and benefits are often provided. In general, expect long hours and hard work – but above-average pay.
