Job Description

Multi-Action Labels is growing again! Our order book has been exploding despite Covid.

We are hiring four permanent, full-time positions on afternoon and weekend shifts! No direct experience required – training is provided. People seeking a career (over just a job), are encouraged to apply for a role that will develop industry knowledge and build a long-lasting relationship with a winning team.

Founded over 25 years ago, Multi-Action Labels is a family-owned company with close to 200 employees across Canada, including 50 staff in our Port Coquitlam plant. Multi-Action offers superb opportunities for advancement and a flexible, clean, casual work environment. Served by buses #159, #175, #188 and #791, our PoCo operations also contain ample (free) on-site parking.

Multi-Action Labels is recruiting roles for a press operator, a turret operator and a die cutter! Rest assured, if you’re not familiar with the terms – as a self-motivated hard-worker, we’ll teach you what you need to know! You are punctual, reliable, organized, and independent, with basic mechanical skills, a strong work ethic and superb references. Experience in a manufacturing/processing company or in the industry is an asset, but not a requirement.

Enjoy a comprehensive benefits package (including dental, extended health, life & disability insurance) by joining a stable, dynamic and positive family-type atmosphere. Weekday shifts are 4×10 hours each, which means three-day weekends every weekend, while weekend shift workers get four days off every week, and 40 hours’ pay for 36 hours worked!
