I work as a laborer. Its hands-on work. I’m always learning new things on the job site. I also like doing dirty work: that’s where I learn more about the job. Most of all, I like working safe, and I always have safety on my mind.
I started doing this type of job at Detour Lake Mine in the process plant in July 2015. Now I’m working at Former Paper Miller.
Iroquois Falls, Ontario.
I always wanted to work as a heavy equipment operator. I graduated from the program, and I’m now able to operate bulldozers, backhoes, excavators, graders, and loaders. Most employers told me that I have to start off as a laborer and work my way up. Hopefully someday I can get my chance to shine my light to operate heavy equipment again.
For fun, I hunt, fish, camp, and ATV. I play my drum set and my bass guitar. As a pastime, I like to work on things like small engines, ATVs, snowmobiles, and lawnmowers.
