...I have a friend who did a season in Alaska. They flew him up there, dumped him in basically a prefab-shack-hotel with a community bathroom/shower area and expected him to work 16 hours a day. They provided two meals and that was that. They paid him once a month after deducting tools, uniform, and other expenses.
He said it was a brutal nasty job with very long hours and very poor conditions and it was not worth the pay.
I see these positions come up on Craigslist quite often... and we all know what a pillar of upright and integrityness Craigslist is. I used to order my hookers for murdering off of there, after all. Well that was before they changed the laws about that sort of thing.
Anyway. No way in hell you'd see me considering that sort of nonsensical seasonal-relocation job unless there was a very very generous up-front signing bonus.
