Potentially looking for a back up/second shift sawyer.
« on: February 17, 2015, 02:37:01 pm »
It would be a full time position at our company. Just not a full time sawyer to start. I need someone to train and become proficient at sawing on our mill as there is talk of starting a second shift if things get busy this spring/summer. Our current sawyer is a wizard hes been with us closing in on 40 years. Unfortunately nobody plays the game forever. At some point we're going to need to fill his position permanently and I'd rather not do it at the drop of a hat.
We do benefits and profit sharing among other things. If interested I have tons of details.
Location is Queensbury NY 12804

Still looking for another Sawyer. Anyone know where else to look for an experienced sawyer. Even just barely experienced.

BOCES? NY unemployment, used to be called Work Solutions around here, Craigslist?....I know, I know! But, I always have good luck with it. Your competition? Mexico?
Why would anyone work now when  everything is free free free!
Seriously, I would indeed try BOCES, plus they'll be young enough to get another forty years out of'em.  :D

I get 1-3 kids a year from BOCES for internships as part of their schooling. I tried 3 different competitors. So far they have gotten 2 of my guys. :( Luckily only 1 good one. NYS Unemployment is a joke. Craigslist has produced nothing but headaches, and that's just for general labor. Finding a Sawyer is tough around here.

Yea, I wish you was closer. I need a job. my truck was built in the last millennium, and since I am self employed, and the accountant takes as many deductions as possible to show as little income as possible for tax purposes, the bank says I don't have enough income to get a loan even for a used vehicle.
Just call me the midget doctor.

Lots of guys want to pile lumber but nobody(locally) wants to saw it.
We had a fairly local mill burn down and close last month. I tried that guy. He wants to work for the State instead.
