Matt traveled from Vancouver Island to train with us as a Worksafe client. He was determined to become a processor operator.
"It's a different job. Not everyone can do it, and I like doing things that are a bit more difficult."
Matt was learning on the timber block.
"Everyone here is good. Dardo takes good care of me, I talk to him all the time. Dan's a great guy, all the guys out here are great to work with. They all come over and help, and give me little pointers that I need. Taylor has been my main instructor, and he's awesome. He's got tons of experience."
Through our recruitment service, O'Brien helped Matt to find a job on Vancouver Island, near his home town of Naniamo.
"I started the new job right after finishing training. They supplied me with a pickup, pay me union rate. It's a union company so I get all my benefits and such. I am running a 2018 tiger cat 880D with a 605 south star head on it. It only had 3000 hours on it when I started!"
Congratulations, Matt! Your hard work has paid off.
