No... it's french fries with cheese 9supposed to be cheese curd) covered in gravy so the cheese melts... There are many variations of Poutine (pronounced PU-tin) bacon and cheddar is my favourite...

Living here, you are 5 minutes from awesome wheeling!!!

Not sure what is required for you to be able to work over here, but if you know you are able to and want to, here is the posting...

Pm me if you have any questions about the business or the job... I can fill you in from an "on the floor" perspective!

"Requires an certified industrial millwright" ???

I own a mill but (according to my wife), I'm never right. So close.

$55000/ yr without certification plus gain and team share...
$59000/ yr with trade certificate plus....
Wages are said to be going up in the near future due to a recalculation to rebalance the salaries between lower guys in the trades, and the higher guys...
Also our annual salary is going up, likely in the 3% range for this year...
There is plenty of OT, if you want it...
Did I mention that this place is Non-Union, and on an evening/nightshift or a weekend there are NO supervisors or leadhands or bosses of any shape or religion in the mill. We are a self-directed workforce and it is a decent place to work...

Yep... I know, but they are willing to disregard that IF the guy/girl can prove relevant experience... He asked me if there were any apprentices (apprentice being someone that does not hold a Industrial Millwright Mechanic trade certification) in school with me that might be interested... They have also hired Heavy Equipment Diesel guys in the past...
