Did you try S.R.I.Homes or Riverside on beaver lake rd?
There's a few places moving into the new industrial park on beaver lk rd.

I live in Winield-work in Vernon,used to prefer the commute to Kelowna
better than Vernon.(my 2 cents)

Did you try "Natural Factors". They are the old Hiram-Walker building. My boyfriend just got on there. The pay is typical for the Okanagan. But he say they haven't been bad to work for so far.

Accutruss, Whitewater...Whitewater is the fiberglass plant at the bottom of Beaver Lake Rd, Accutruss is just in behind them. Theres Kelowna Tool n Die, and Versatille down in that area too. My buddy works at Versatille and says its a good place to work. Its been a while since I was there so Im sure theres probably even more.

Have you got class 1 and can enter the states?

My ex boss was looking for mobile home haulers and pilot drivers.

Based out of Armstrong.

Baldy mountain transport or CPS resources.

Stan Overbee is the boss. not to bad on the money, but can be long miserable hours

Are you asking bout flightcraft? If so I worked there about 5 years ago. Unless your already qualified to do maintinance on planes, there are lots of other, very less paying jobs there. They are hunting for people everywhere, I even heard they would concider hiring me back. Dam they must be desperate. The one good thing there is everyone on the floor gets the same bonus, and it's bin a good one lately.
