Please watch for our postings at the college and on our careers page.

Co-Op Program

We have hired students from our local colleges and/or universities in various disciplines relevant to their academic programs. Our co-op program gives student the opportunity to put their studies into practice in Engineering, Distribution and Health and Safety.

We typically post on our website in February for summer students to help us with our vacation replacements and workloads during these months. This partnership gives students an opportunity to gain some valuable hands-on experience with a chance to return for a second year.
