Description :

You’re an experienced heavy equipment operator looking for a great company, where you can put your skills to work.

We’re Walker Aggregates, an employer of choice across Ontario, and we want to hear from you.

Heavy Equipment Operator

We’re looking for several heavy equipment operators to run haul trucks, bulldozers, loaders, articulated trucks, and large excavators.

Rotating through a variety of machines and duties means there’s lots to do and learn.

The best heavy equipment operators are smart, keep themselves organized, and take special care to do a good job. You have great situational awareness, and can push your machine to its full capabilities while understanding its restrictions.

Ideally, you have training or experience running heavy equipment, taking care of your machines, as well as the following qualifications :

  • At least a year’s experience as a heavy equipment operator
  • Experience working in a quarry or sand and gravel pit
  • Safety training and mechanical aptitude is an asset
  • Common core training is an asset
  • Practical Details

    Walker runs various quarries in Essex County, and you’ll be working primarily in our McGregor Quarry, in the township of Amherstburg.

    Our quarries run on various shifts from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. and your work could happen any time between these hours. We’ll work together to establish a fairly predictable schedule though.

    This is a contract position, up to 7 months, with an hourly wage is $24 / hour with overtime after 40 hours. Many of our contract workers have stayed with Walker long-term.
