This is common place in the northern Canada. The companies that hire workers send people to work camps when they are working. Some people elect to stay in camp the whole year round. You eat company food, watch company TV and sometimes smoke company dope.

I lived in a house with 5 other people that I was working with (doing masonry) for a couple months. It is indeed disorienting to be kicked out of your place of work and be told you have a week to GTFO. It really helps to have some money saved up just for that situation.

A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
