Who We Are
Lethbridge Iron Works Ltd. is one of the leading jobbing iron foundries supplying iron castings across North America. Founded in 1898, and headquartered in Lethbridge, Alberta, we have since grown into an 110,000 square foot, modern, production foundry managed on a 7-acre expanse in Lethbridge's industrial park.
We are a company that likes to do things differently. We are constantly innovating, and we never leave our staff in the dust. We work hard to make sure that our staff are properly trained, understand how to keep themselves and each other safe, and who follow our core values every step of the way.
*Be Better * Engaged Employees * Unique Customer Experience * Greater Good * Authentic Relationships*
We are looking for individuals to work in our Finishing department. These individuals will be grinding metal, and some will be working with our electronic grinding machines (aka Foxalls).
We make our schedule on a rotation, so our employees will need to be available for any shift: 5 AM to 1 PM, 1 PM to 9 PM, and 9 PM to 5 AM.
For this position, the right candidate needs to be comfortable working with grinding equipment in full PPE (including a full bubble around your head for fresh air intake), standing for a full 8 hour shift. This position needs good wrist and finger motor skills, an attention for detail, the ability to follow instructions, and a great attitude. We need people who are going to contribute to the team and are not just looking for 'a job'.
All of our employees need to be extremely safety-oriented. We are looking to hire for these roles asap.
We do a pre-employment physical fitness test. You may be standing for your 10 hour shift while working heavy metal at a grinding table, so be sure that you can do this safely before applying.
The right person for us is going to be someone that loves coming to work, being part of a team but also working alone, who can just get the work done that we gave for you. We need this person to have safety as their #1 priority Every. Single. Day.
You need to be able to work in sometimes EXTREMELY hot/cold conditions while wearing PPE. You have to be comfortable around sand and molten metal. You need to be able to read, speak, and comprehend English.
We need someone who is quick but puts safety above all when it comes down to it.
Pay - $18/hr to start, $18.55 at 3 months, and $19.10 at 6 months.
People - Our people love working here. We treat them with respect and dignity, and they are loyal back to us. We are not the place where people hesitate to be honest with us if they have a situation or need some help. We help our people to be successful. We care about the relationship we have with each other - no matter what role you're in. This is our brotherhood (or sisterhood, whatever works).
Other - We do so much here, but some of the highlights include company events (COVID is currently messing this up for us), a free physiotherapist that comes twice/week (this doesn't go through benefits - we pay for it), full PPE (no more duct tape on your safety glasses), and so much more!
