Wingers

The Highway Department has a need to add to their call-in list for Wingers. We would appreciate it if you could spread the word to your dependable friends and family.  

Here are the particulars: 

Wingers ride with a snow plow driver to be an extra set of eyes and help operate the wings (blades).

­ Wingers do not drive the trucks.

Wingers must have the physical ability to climb into the truck, sit for long periods of time, have good eye site, and live within a 30-minute commute of the Highway Department.

We are hiring for an on-call list. This means, if hired, you will be put on a list to potentially be called. We cannot guarantee a specific number of hours; we can’t even guarantee that you will work this upcoming season at all. We can guarantee you will be able to experience winter from a different perspective!

­ “On-call” means that you could get called at 2:00 am to report immediately. You could work a few hours, or all day; Mother Nature dictates that. Or you could get called at another time.

This is a temporary seasonal position. Rate of pay is $18 per hour.

Wingers need to have their own safety shoes, and need to wear them on the job.

We will be accepting applications through November 2, 2019.
