Snow Removal Operator – Full Time Positions

What you will be doing

  • Snow removal can be extremely challenging from a physical, environmental and schedule perspective.
  • This is not a skid steer operation – we remove snow with shovels, snowblowers, walk behind sweepers, and backpack blowers.
  • We work after every single snow fall. Work typically starts at 7AM and may go as late as 8PM. 
  • You will start with classroom and practical training, then you will work alongside an experienced operator until you have a demonstrated understanding of company and client expectations, safe and efficient operations, and customer service.
  • Different seasons will require a different set of tools and skills. You will be expected to recognize which tools are going to work best, and expertly use them to leave a quality finish.
  • Once you’re fully trained, we will integrate you into a dedicated crew for a set of properties. You must ensure our standards are met at each property while remaining safe.
  • This job starts immediately.

The skills and experience you will need for this job

  • You are very comfortable with driving, and experience driving pickup trucks or towing trailers would be terrific. Clean drivers abstract required.
  • No criminal record.
  • You are physically fit, can push or pull up to 60 lbs at a time, and can also be on your feet for 10 hours per day.
  • You need to have basic gear such as comfortable waterproof boots, snow pants, winter coat and base layers. We can provide items like gloves and safety gear, but want you to also be as comfortable in the cold as you can be. 
  • Mechanical aptitude, customer service and navigational competency are all assets you should tell us about.
  • If you have worked in snow removal or lawn care before we would love to hear about that, but we also need to know that you’re open to doing things the Mow Town way too.
  • You have a cell phone and can use our free app to check your schedule. You can text, email, check the weather and call a manager when needed.

What’s in it for you

  • Pay is hourly and ranges from $17-$22 per hour.
  • We can’t predict whether it will snow 5 times or 25 times in a month. To ensure you can still make a living, we normally provide a guaranteed number of hours. For example: We may guarantee you 150 hours of pay. If it only snows 3 times in the month and you can only log 21 hours, you’ll get 150 hours of pay. If it snows 22 times and you log 157 hours, we’ll pay you for 157 hours at your hourly rate.
  • We sometimes provide food and drink while you are working, but plan to bring a water bottle and a lunch/snack just in case.

How to apply

  • Very important: apply via email only. We are out driving all day, and typically our clients need to take priority when it comes to texting and calling.
  • Send a resume and a brief note on why you are going to be the best fit for this job to careers@mowtownedmonton.com. If you have references for related work, please include them as well.
