One of the most selective and difficult jobs to get in the oil field is working directly on an oil drill rig. These jobs typically require standing on your feet for a 12-hour shift, for two weeks straight, followed by one week off-duty.
Typically at oil drilling company offices, the administrative lobby area will have a two way mirror which is reflective on one side, and transparent through the other side. When an applicant walks in the door, a company administrator is looking at the applicant from the back side of the mirror without their knowledge, judging their health and physical fitness.
Oil companies know from experience that only youthful, healthy, physically fit individuals with no physical defects will be able to handle the long hours of physical work, standing on a drill rig platform, or carrying things up and down the stairs or derrick.
One of the biggest signs of physical health, is physical beauty, the two go together. Therefore, the oil drilling companies are looking for the most healthy/beautiful applicants. Also, the driller and rig boss don’t want to have to look at ugly people for twelve hours per day, two weeks straight, for months at a time.
