In the summer months we typically work 50+ hours per week.

  • When required, assist other operators, labourers and trades.

Your application must describe your qualifications as they relate to proven experience and ability in the operation of construction equipment (and attachments) such as a front-end loader and skid steer, as well as experience in maintenance and construction of roads, sidewalks, driveways, etc.

You must also have:

  • The ability to maintain accurate records and to communicate effectively verbally and in writing.
  • The ability to deal courteously with customers.
  • Thorough knowledge of Provincial and City traffic laws.
  • The availability to work rotating shift /weekends/overtime and standby.
  • Knowledge of safety regulations that apply to this work.
  • The physical capability to perform required duties and be able to work in all weather conditions, including driving in adverse and inclement weather for long periods of time.

This job often requires more than an 8-hour day. You need a strong work ethic and a team player mentality to enjoy a positive work experience with us.
