The Nata Leadership team will review your resume and application. If you pass screening you will be contacted by one of our crew leaders. Successful applicants will go through 2 interviews. One with a crew leader, and a second interview with a member of our Nata Leadership Staff.
Really it depends on the weather (ie snow melt) We have to be able to drive to the blocks. Right now we are aiming for planter orientation on May 6 and the 1st day of planting to be on May 7th.
Nata uses a payroll system called Payworks. You will get paid by automated deposit directly to your bank account every 2 weeks. Each employee has access to their own payworks self service portal where they can see their paystubs, as well as an attachment that shows every days tally and species planted.
Nata Reforestation and Management adheres to BC Employment Standards. All employees are issued a Record of Employment filed electronically with Service Canada within 5 days of their last pay day.
T4's are issued annually in January through payworks self service portal. Employees will simply login to Payworks and be able to print off their T4 information.
Yes, you can bring a personal vehicle to camp, but there are no paid vehicle allowances for personal vehicles. Our last camp is located in Chetwynd, BC. Our camps are located off forest service roads, so your personal vehicle must be able to sustain some challenging road conditions.
Camp food is prepared for you each workday. Breakfast includes a variety of cold cereals, oatmeal with a variety of toppings, eggs, breakfast meat, and pancakes or hashbrowns. Coffee and hot water (hot chocolate and tea are available)
Employees make their sandwiches for lunch from an array of sandwich meats, cheese, hummus, vegetable toppings, peanut butter, jam, Nutella, and condiments. Employees can take apples, oranges or bananas, as well as an assortment of prepared baking. Whole wheat and gluten-free bread options are available.
Suppers include a lettuce and carbohydrate type salad, a choice of 2 soups, meat, carbohydrates(potatoes, rice or pasta) and hot vegetables as well as dessert. Popular supper options are lasagne with caesar salad, Mexican beef burritos, perogies and sausage, butter chicken with rice, and honey garlic meatballs with vege stirfry chow mein.
We do not guarantee an allergen-free environment in our kitchen, but we do try to provide a workable safe environment for anyone with food allergies. That being said, our food is prepared in mass amounts in our kitchen, and individual food menus can't be offered. Vegetarians are offered their choice of salads, one soup, and one meat alternative for supper.
There is a "planter fridge" available for anyone who wishes to buy and store their own food at camp. Food (for bear safety reasons) is not allowed in your tent or outside the food tent area. Food preparation areas (stoves, hot plates) are not available for individual use, and all employees must eat at camp during workdays.
Days in camp start early: breakfast is generally at 6 am and supper is at 6 pm. We work 3 days on and 1 day off.
