Current Openings: STREET SWEEPER OPERATOR (Updated Sept 2, 2014)
Sample Street Sweeper Operator Requirements
Local Orange County Street Sweeping company looking to train you to operate our street sweepers. $12/hr during 2-3 week training. $14-$20 after training.
Includes uniforms, major medical, life insurance, health savings plans. This is full time work. We work locally, so you are home every night. You are working outdoors and seldom do the same thing two days in a row. Our current position is for daytime work.
This position is more than a job. It is a career for the right person. If that interests you, it is very important you read this entire post all the way to the end. It will tell you what you need to know and how you need to apply.
– No sweeping experience needed (You’ll be put through an extensive and ongoing training program)
– Class A, B or C drivers license
– H6 (10 year) print out from the DMV that is less that 120 days old (will be needed at next step)
– A good 10 year driving record is required.
– No alcohol related convictions within 10 years.
– Must have ability to speak, understand, write and read English
– High School Diploma or equivalent required
– Must be able to follow verbal & written directions (including these)
– Ability to work independently, customer service skills, organizational skills, and a positive attitude are required
– Must pass physical, drug test and insurance clearance. We also do random testing.
– Must be able to lift 50 lbs on a frequent basis.
– Must be able to climb into and onto the vehicles up to a hundred times per day.
– Must be at least 23 years old, (21 with military or special training.)
– Must be 6’ 2” or under
– Must be 250 lbs or under. (Sorry, trucks are custom built – large people just don’t fit)
– Must be able to work long hours and weekends.
– Must live within 15-20 minutes of the City of Orange – or willing to relocate within 6 months of getting position. (FYI: many people think they can drive a sweeper 8-12 hours per day, then add a 45-60 min. commute at each end. Burnout is so fast we won’t even consider it. It also means you are not close enough to pick up extra hours.)
– Basic mechanical automotive experience is required.
(These are not part of the everyday job duties but used as guide to determine what “basic” is referring to. The successful applicant would be confident in the following: changing belts, oil, filters, tires, tail light bulbs and spark plugs. Installing a car stereo or trouble shooting fuses. ) Experience beyond basic is a plus. Diesel/automotive technicians will be given serious consideration and may be able to split time between operating sweepers and working in the shop.
