So why not call them and ask?
Does CANUCKS.COM REALLY seem like the best place for advice about a longshore job?
Instead of being a clown, perhaps get off your unemployed ass and do some research.
you think i haven't tried? im asking here because almost everyone who posts lives in the lower mainland and might know a thing or two. and who says im unemployed? im in my 3rd year as an electrical apprentice.
u mad you will never get this job?

What age are you, I know people who got in and they have kids and a family to support. And they have to let the job go just because they rarely get work when your on the bottom on seniority, It takes 3-4 years to move up into the position where you can get actually get semi-consistent work. Lots of the guys/gals that work there become drug addicts and gamblers, because they dont know how to handle the money, Ive actually had a foreman tell my friend he doesnt even trust the guys on the machines/mega dock-lifts because a lot of them are on 'blow' on the job.
Goto school and get something you can depend on because Im telling you right now, they did a draw in '06 and another in '08 I think, so with this economy and the fact they got people there waiting for work, its a VERY slim chance that there going to hiring more greens any time soon. (IMO atleast 4-6yr before the next one in Vanterm) Deltaport Im not sure about though.
well i guess they didn't make a smart decision leaving this job. currently work at delta port is crazy and most shifts they call people from vancouver because they can't get enough people to work.
im in my 3rd year as an electrical apprentice so if i don't get into longshore which is a 1% chance then i can always come back to the company i currently work for.
