ContainerWest Manufacturing is looking for a Container Handler Operator to work in our Richmond, BC yard.

This rewarding position offers excellent variety and a high level of responsibility. The main focus is loading trucks, feeding the shop, keeping the yard organized and inspecting in-bound containers for damage. There may be opportunities to participate in yard or building maintenance projects, or with equipment maintenance. Multi-trade skills or equipment maintenance experience are assets.

The ideal candidate will be: calm under pressure, able to plan ahead and avoid placing items where they’re blocking something else, able to memorize and apply the container damage coding system, gentle on the machine.

This is a perfect position for an operator looking to be recognized for their ability to drive “smooth” with excellent control. We will train on container inspections. For the right person, there may be opportunities to be trained on other large machines such as mixer truck, rock truck, vac truck, excavator, grader etc.
