Traders Worker II (Former Employee) – Lower Cove – 15 February 2013
Looking after 20 schools in the northern region and on the south east coast of Labrador.This includes everything from mechanical,electrical and any renovations that need to be done.Basically its keeping the schools safe and confortable for the kids and staff.
work at something different each day, and you get to travel around the district and you meet alot of people.
the pay for trades is to low, no chance for advancement no matter how much you know or how hard you work.
It wasn't a full-time job, but one I loved. Being on the casual list meant I had to travel to various schools in the district. It was a busy job working with management, teachers, and students. I like being busy. The hardest part of the job for me was the traveling. There was always a learning curve Co-workers were, for the most part, very cooperative I loved the job and would have stayed but there wasn't enough work.
great hours as the job ended at 4 pm the holidays are longer than most jobs.
i couldn't get full-time work because i was at the low end of the list.
