Job Description

For many, being a heavy equipment operator at EACOM Val-d’Or would be the fulfillment of a childhood dream. Basically, your job is to operate actual big machines to unload log trucks, transport wood, feed the plant from the lumber yard, and lots of other cool stuff like that. On top of that, you work as part of a team with other friends (operators) who also operate heavy machinery. Just imagine that!

What you’ll be doing in practical terms:

  • Feeding 10-foot logs, debarked or not, to the bucking mill using available machinery
  • Unloading the log trucks
  • Feeding the mill by transporting wood from the yard to the mill
  • Emptying the reject bins and sorting the logs according to our quality standards
  • Working as a team with other heavy equipment operators
  • Levelling out the yard
  • Performing all other related tasks... obviously.

Your profile in order to succeed with us:

  • Independent and responsible
  • Available and patient
  • Good with your hands and meticulous
  • Good spatial perception and visual-motor coordination
  • Willing to learn (you must commit to successfully completing on-the-job training)
  • Health and safety conscious
