  • Assist with other duties as required.

What You’ll Get in Return:

  • An outstanding team of coworkers who value diversity and teamwork;
  • A competitive wage of $32.60 / hour;
  • A comprehensive benefits package; and
  • Assistance with relocation for those considering a move from outside the District.

What You’ll Bring:

  • Your Education:
    • Grade 12 education or equivalent
    • Class 5 Driver’s License with Air Brake Endorsement or better
