  • Insights from Canfor’s Talent Acquisition team: We have different shift rotations at each of our operations and your schedule will depend on your position and site of employment.

    To give you an idea, at one of our pulp mills shift work may consist of 10 hour days Monday to Thursday.

    At our sawmill the shift work for tradespeople may consist of eight-hour days Monday to Friday. Shift rotations can also be two-10 hour days followed by two-10 hour night shifts.

    At peak times there may be occasional overtime required and your manager will discuss this in advance to ensure employees have time to plan.

  • Insights from Canfor’s Talent Acquisition team: The call-list is a common practice at sawmills and allows companies to scale its operations. For entry-level positions at our sawmills individuals start on the call-list regardless of their experience and connections. During this time you will be “on-call” and must be available to work shifts on short notice. An individual may be eligible to bid on full-time positions after a period of time with consideration by management on your experience, education, work performance and call-list attendance.

    Many entry-level positions at our pulp mill operations start on a full-time basis, working upwards of 40 hours per week, with no call-list.
