AECOM Machinist Journeyman in Fort McKay, Alberta
Canada - Alberta, Fort McKay
AECOM is currently seeking a Machinist Journeyman to join the Imperial Oil Kearl mine maintenance project team on site near Fort McKay, Alberta.
Machinists set up and operate precision metal cutting (line boring) machining equipment to make and repair products made from metals on heavy mining equipment. Experience with climax line boring machining equipment will be considered a great asset.

Study specifications, charts, drawings or sample parts to determine the machining operation to be performed,
Calculate dimensions and tolerances, and prepare working sketches if necessary,
Measure and mark metal and other materials,

Fit parts to mechanisms and verify dimensions.
