Meat Cutter (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC8 December 2016
A typical day would be me preparing my skinning machine making sure it is working and all the parts are put together and functional. Then proceed to skin meat for 8 hours. Sometimes i will ask for a break from skinning and will be assigned to box stacking.

I learned how to skin meat and a little bit of cutting. Most of the co workers are nice and friendly and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job is that it is super fast paced and hard to keep up, easy to get injured. What i found most enjoyable about the job was using the pallet jack and bringing pallets to shipping.
Pros
learn how to cut meat
Cons
too much overtime, very hard on the body

Awesome
Carpenter/Metal Cladder (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, AB8 January 2013
Good management, we have a zero tolerance when it comes to drugs and alcohol for the safety of all in the job site. I learned a lot especially working with different trades and union personnel. Great co-workers all are manageable and all practiced working safe habit. hardest part of the job, I have lots of task to do especially handling the cladding crew and the carpentry works so my time is short and I have to teach some of my companions and inspect their works. I enjoyed a lot from my work at the end of the project when all my work passed the inspectors qualifications.
Pros
all are free including the travel and hotel
Cons
very good hours

Production worker (Current Employee) –  Agassiz, BC20 August 2012
a typical day would be go to work start on floors and by the middle of the day our line of making walls would be way ahead then the finishing guys so we would stand around waiting. Co workers are all older and some are very rude. Hardest part is listening to the older men complain were moving to fast. enjoy talking to my lead hand and learning new things
Pros
free bbqs a month
Cons
low wages
