Insights from Canfor’s Talent Acquisition team: The recruitment process will vary depending on the position.
If you are an entry-level job seeker, some of our locations hold interactive group hiring sessions, called “Canfor Connects”. These sessions are for you to learn about job opportunities at Canfor and allow our supervisors and recruiters to make hiring considerations. As an entry-level job seeker you can expect a short hiring process from a few days to a week. These events are by invitation, so if you’re interested in finding out more about them, we welcome you to apply for our open opportunities at canfor.com/careers
For mid-level and managerial positions, we have a more comprehensive hiring process. Once we receive an application, we review the information and contact potential new hires to better understand their experience and fit for the role. For those selected, we will schedule an initial screening which may include an interview, assessment or testing. For operations related roles, we invite hopefuls to attend an in-person interview and tour of the mill. The hiring process usually entails multiple interviews with managers, the regional manager and/or team members. This process can take upwards of 30 days and will depend on the role and requirements of the position.
For successful candidates, a member of our talent acquisition team will contact you to complete a reference and background check prior to the official hiring.Answered by Canfor3 July 2019
