Job Description :
We have an opportunity for a millwright who loves to work hard and get paid well doing it.


The position is a millwright role in Richmond, BC.  You will be working a steady day shift and be eligible for extensive regular overtime.  This opportunity is a good fit for you if:


-You are a Red Seal or Journeyman Industrial Mechanic/Millwright.  We will accept 4th year or possibly 3rd apprentices if they are skilled and capable of working at the journeyman level.


-You are physically fit, this position involves some grunt work and activities such as climbing.


-You are comfortable and capable spending a large portion of your time repairing and maintaining heavily used conveyor belts.  


-You are also good working on bearings


-You have a safe knowledge of electrical (understand what gets you killed and how to avoid being electrocuted)


-You are comfortable doing plenty of quick fix welding (ie. broken axle, weld back together)


-You are ok to work outside majority of the time.


-You are thick skinned, can work under pressure, and can tactfully deal with abrasive people when needed.


This is not a highly automated plant with complex hydraulic systems.  Its a pretty straightforward job and someone with a red seal millwright ticket will have the technical capabilities to do this job. You have to be comfortable with a fluctuating pace or work, be ok doing breakdown maintenance, and be fine running a routine PM system.  One of the most important factors is fitting in with the group.  They are a crew of hard workers who treat each other well in the maintenance team, they have lots of years in front of them in their careers and a get er done attitude.  


People who have worked in lumber mills or at the port will have a good background for this position.  Think about the work environment as if its a camp job but in town.  


The offer will be $38-44 per hour depending on the person, factoring in OT you will make anywhere from 120-150k per year depending on your rate.  Non union.
