In the not so distant past, during the boom years, the demand for workforce on oil rigs in North Dakota was at times so critical, that the companies just had no other choice than to agree to hire applicants with absolutely no previous experience in oil and gas industry and no industry-specific college or vocational training from trade school. The inexperienced, but healthy and strong young men (and women), could apply for a position of Roustabout and be employed to do the job they under different circumstances would never land. Currently the situation on oilfield employment market somewhat changed.

Several years ago the oil drilling and oilfield servicing companies in North Dakota or in Colorado, desperate for workforce, would gladly offer entry-level jobs to the first guy from the street. Those were for the most part the vacancies of Righand or Roustabout, less frequently called Roughneck. To be exact, the Roughneck job job and Roughneck position title is what you are more likely to come across in offshore oil drilling industry, where Roughneck, who is a Driller Helper, is clearly distinguished from Roustabout, which is the industry specific name for low skilled laborer that only sometimes substitutes Roughnecks during the drilling process for a coffee break. While then job seeker had all chances to be hired with little to no experience and even without having to submit CV, nowadays an entry-level roustabout job is really hard to land. Oil rigs in North Dakota at this time are legally restricted to having only one unskilled greenhand worker as a junior crew member to undergo on-the-job training and pick up the many skills you have to master in order to be able to cope with roustabout job, as required by roustabout job description.
I believe I have a good piece of advice for someone trying hard to get hired on oil rigs of North Dakota as roustabout. Production industry positions in the directions like waste disposal, truck driving, maintenance etc. can make a good alternative to the employment in oil drilling. The point is that every drilling rig, once started to get deployed, gradually creates the number of auxiliary and catering jobs that ultimately reaches an impressive number of 120 jobs outside oil drilling. From them about 37% are trucking jobs. Therefore having a CDL (commercial driver's license) may create for anyone a chance to get a job with comparable salary, while less dirty, less stressful, and bearing less risk for a worker's health. Only one fracking operation line consumes over 2,000 truckloads of water yearly. Getting a cistern truck driving job can be quick, provided applicant has a sustainable driving record and is smart enough to enclose his or her motor vehicle report to their job application before employer asks for it. Truck driver job is much cleaner and less demanding, compared to what Roustabout has to do to earn his salary.
Still, the general laborer (Roustabout) position on oilfields is in fact the oil rig job, which from one hand is the most popular, while from the other perspective is one, which greenhand job seekers compete most fiercely for. From Roustabout the greenhands normally will be promoted to Roughneck just after several months of working on oil rigs. Some of the other popular oilfield-related roles that offer the great salary, associated with oil rigs and flows of crude oil, include: Welder Roustabout, Operator assistant, Finisher, Electronic technician, Crane operator, Shop technician, Mud logger, Field Service Operator (Dual Belt Conveyor, Frac Stack, Zipper, BOP, Sand King, Frac Pumps, High Pressure Manifold), Pipefitter, Rig Mechanic, Motorman (Motorhand), Truck driver, Scaffolder, Frac Helper, Frac Valve Tech, Derrickman (Derrickhand) Assistant Driller, fracking equipment operator, Electrician, Concrete, Roustabout Pusher, Acid Truck/Hot OIl Truck Operator.
