Advancement Opportunities

We’re a growing company with opportunity for advancement. Successful Driller Assistants may have the chance to become Drillers based on performance.


Driller Assistants help the Driller obtain core samples, which our clients use to design foundations for new buildings, refineries, roads, dams, etc. On a typical day, Driller Assistants load drills and trucks with all the tooling and supplies required for the job.
The Driller Assistant may then drive the drill or a support truck to the job. Working closely with the Driller and the client, the Driller Assistant prepares sampling devices, gives samples to the client, gets augers and other drill tooling for the driller (this involves heavy lifting), and keeps the work area clean by shoveling dirt away from the borehole.
The work is outdoors, and very physically demanding. We’re VERY serious about safety, so don’t consider applying if you are the type of person who cuts corners or can’t follow safe work practices.

No experience necessary. The work is outdoors year-round, in all weather. Drug and alcohol testing is a mandatory requirement of our clients. If you can’t pass, you can’t work.
Candidates MUST have flexible schedules and be willing work out of town frequently. Job sites and hours of work change often.
A good driving record is required (no more than 2 tickets, none serious, and NO DUI’s.)
Being on time is a must, as is the ability to work safely as part of a team.
Candidates MUST have their own transportation to get to and from our Edmonton or Calgary shops.
Oilfield experience is NOT an asset.

Fax, mail, or drop off in person to any Mobile Augers office. All resumes held in confidence. We sincerely thank all applicants in advance for their interest, but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
