Be prepared to work very hard, don't expect any 'craic' and you'll do fine.
I had good craic there ,

and I was in the middle of nowhere .



To the OP ,
Most of what's said here about Norway is pretty true ,
They're diligent , patient , no-nonsense people ,

Dry sense of humour , don't open up and spout shite at the first opportunity , But seem sound out once they get a measure of ya , as long as you're sound .

I've only seen a factory , and they're pretty safe , by the numbers , solid H&S type guys as far as I could tell . they don't like cutting corners .

im still working at the moment but nobody knows what the future holds,
has anyone here ever worked in norway in construction,there's very little on the net about it
have a few friends that work out there (mostly physics and instrumentation guys) foring with the oil/gas.. anyway they love it, good standard of living , nice huoses/neighbourhoods (crime is almost non-existant) - good salaries also , if your mad for pints forget it (but i guess that goes for most places outside ireland Uk and oz) - anyway it worked out well for them (longest has been there 8 years at this stage)
