Nate Stafiej has worked for Fraser River Pile & Dredge for the past 10 years. He started in 2005 as an apprentice welder, completed his welding ticket and got his Red Seal, and then applied for the position of Equipment Superintendent in 2011. His father-in-law  worked for Fraser River Pile & Dredge, and that is how Nate found his way into the career. He likes the job because things are different each day, even though he describes the work as “dirty.” He emphasizes the adaptability and intuition required for his work. He also enjoys the social connections that he has made though his work.
