Greg"I'm thrilled to be working in the Oilheat industry! I didn't need years of training to get my job; I took the basic course and I was hired. The pay is great, and so are the benefits, health insurance and pension plan. I don't have to invest a fortune in work clothes. I work close to home, and I use my service van to drive to and from work, so I don't need a second car. All in all, you can't beat a job like this for security, income and perks."
