General Considerations for Employment
Certain positions such as Log Buyer, Mill Supervisor or Technical Supervisor will have specific experience requirements and those will be listed in the job recruitment. However, for general mill positions while experience working in a saw mill, in logging or other forest products business is desirable, we train all of our employees. We also like to work with individuals who have studied forestry in school. However, all we look for is someone willing to learn and work hard and be part of our family. Everyone has to be trained to work our equipment, so everyone has a chance at these jobs.
