Take our short quiz below to find out if the unionized heavy industrial construction sector right for you. Think each question over carefully, and be honest with yourself.

  • Do I like to work with my hands?
  • Am I strongly attracted to one particular trade?
  • Do I have the ability to perform required tasks safely and to a high level of quality?
  • Am I fully committed to working in this trade for a number of years and, potentially, my entire career?
  • Am I comfortable joining a union and following its rules and standards?
  • Can I adapt to changing conditions – like different work settings, different types of projects and harsh weather, often in undeveloped areas?
  • Am I willing to travel to remote locations for work?
  • Can I handle living in camp?
  • Can my family and I both handle my being away from home for 14 days at a time?
  • Can I work with a diverse range of people who have different personalities, come from different background and have different levels of work experience?
  • Do I have a positive attitude towards work, colleagues, supervisors and, where applicable, camp life?
  • Am I motivated, honest, and willing to work hard in return for good pay and benefits?
  • Do I care not only about my own safety, but that of everyone else I work with?

If you answered “yes” in most cases, this industry – and BFI in particular – might just be a good fit!
