The Camp Attendant works each day to keep our onsite camp clean and safe. Tasks include garbage removal, cleaning, daily soup making, and cleaning the packing line at the end of shift. You must have a driver's license.
Pickers begin the day with the sun at 5am. The BC Government sets piece rates. Pickers are paid piece rates based on the precise weight picked. We expect pickers to show up ready to get the job done. Cherry picking is hot, hard, tiring and can be very rewarding when done well. The season begins at the end of June and goes until the end of August. A bonus is in place for those who stay to help complete the harvest.
CHERRY SORTER, PACKER, QUALITY CONTROL
Packinghouse workers begin the day at 7 or 8 every morning. Workers are paid hourly. The majority of positions are inside, with a refreshing 10-15 degree (C) atmosphere. We follow strict food safety protocols, while retaining a relaxed work environment. Soup is served during lunch each day.
PRE-SEASON FIELD LABOUR
Beginning in mid May, we require motivated individuals to work in the orchards doing manual tasks such as irrigation, weed control, and planting. Workers are paid hourly.
FIELD CREW & DRIVERS
The field crew begins the day with the picking crew. They are called 'swampers' and are responsible for moving full lugs of cherries out of the rows and into the bins. Experienced drivers are needed for both tractor and truck hauling in orchards and on local roads.
