[quote=“MeepMeepZoom”]On the topic of the economy, training and Prince Rupert, does anyone have resources (linkable) or reliable information about the kind of workers Maher, Prince Rupert Grain and Ridley Coal need?
This economy is getting a fair bit too rough for my taste, and I am looking into re-training with the ideology of getting training in “what is needed” and “whatever pays a good wage.”[/quote]
Well first off to work at the port you need a union number from the longshore union and they dont just give them out.
Second , the grain terminal only accepts resumes if they have a job posted and the posted jobs will state the types of credentials and expirience you need .
Third is the coal terminal , they post their jobs as well. For the types of workers you can guess, milwrights, welders,mechanics,sheet metal workers, sweepers (grain clean up and coal ), equipment operators,secretarial etc. Just think about it, what do they do there? They empty train cars and load them into silo’s and coal piles, then load it onto ships with conveyors.
