If you work hard and concentrate on completing your tasks everything will run smoothly. I learned how to operate a forklift. Hardest part of the job was leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving.

lead hand, welder, heavy equipment operator (Former Employee) – Selkirk MB – 24 March 2013
Union based environment, making employee management relations slightly school yard, and uniform. Morale a tad low, and vision not one I could wholeheartedly support. I learned a lot in this position, knowledge in machining, programing, operating. Shift work was involved which was hard, but showed me I am capable of adapting. I enjoyed getting my hands dirty and proving to myself that I can tackle and excel, in an industrial environment.
constant learning, great relations with co workers, wage and benefits
