You are interested in the building and lumber industry and are looking for an entry-level position to start your career. You have great people skills and work well in a team environment. Working outside all day doesn’t faze you.  You’re in good shape and enjoy working with your hands.

Experience with a forklift is also a plus. Knowledge of lumber is very helpful, and these candidates do not need to be 18+ to apply.
