I rarely ever post anymore but after reading this I thought I'd say something. Both my dad and his brother are longshoreman in Tsawwassen. They both get paid 100k+/year for honestly doing the easiest job in the world. Honest to god...I went to go visit my dad and theres all these guys eating timbits, laughing and having a good ol' time. Both just finished high school and got the job later on. They've been there 20+ years and the only way you're getting in is if you're related..or they all die.
i've been down to deltaport before and was allowed into the lunch room. i saw exactly what you saw, then i went with a foreman and he drove me around the inside of the ports. looks like a good job to me, my friend was also let off 4 hours early that day because there was no more work for him, but was paid for a full 8.
You may think that, but as a person who does work night shifts I can tell you that they can be pretty rough on you long term.
i wouldn't care especially when im making almost $300 or more a day lol
I'm going to start applying, just to lower your odds of getting the job.
cant really apply, you get in through a application system which they hand out in person once every a million years lol
