Titania Crew LTD Snow Cleaners in Missoula, Montana

Titania Crew LTD located at 575 E Isle LTD Isle, MN 56342, (320) 537-1301 is seeking 24 temporary full-time Snow Cleaners to work at 5252 Airway Blvd Missoula, MT Missoula 59808, from 10/01/2024 to 04/30/2025 to Removing snow and ice mitigation is performed daily for site access and safety reasons. It entails primarily less-skilled manual labor including shoveling, sweeping, or using snow blowers to move excess snow from the construction site. Most areas where work is actually being performed must be cleaned manually because larger equipment will not fit, is too heavy or too large and powerful and may risk damaging current construction. On rare occasions, more skilled workers may use trucks with a snow-blade and/or a skid loader for larger areas and/or site ingress and egress areas. The snow cleaners will have to store, maintain and place the chains on the truck and skid loader tires when conditions are slick from snow and ice. Snow shelters are used on concrete construction sites to keep the temperatures high so that concrete can properly set when the outside temperatures are cold. Snow shelters are erected by snow cleaners under the supervision of the foremen, using basic materials such as two-inch by four-inch or four-inch by four-inch lumber that is fastened together temporarily and covered with reinforced plastic or canvas. Once covered, diesel heaters will pump warm air through hoses into the shelters long enough for the concrete to properly set. The snow shelters are erected following a basic, repetitious pattern and the lumber is preserved and used again if possible. Snow cleaners will also cover concrete with water hoses, heavy blankets and tarps to keep the concrete warm and prevent damage from snow, ice and moisture accumulation. Likewise, the snow cleaners will take the hoses, blankets and tarps off when the concrete is properly set. On a regular basis, the workers will have to manually shovel and sweep the snow off the tarps and blankets first before removing them when the snow accumulates on top of them. All of the materials used to remove snow and keep the construction site and concrete clean and warm is the responsibility of the workers to maintain. Thus, all heaters, chains, blankets, tarps, shovels, sweeps, snow blowers, reinforced plastic, canvas, lumber, hoses, pumps and the shelters for storage must be maintained, cleaned and organized by the snow cleaners. Overall site cleanliness is the responsibility of snow cleaners during the snow and cold weather months. Must be able to lift and carry 75 lbs 75 yds and handle extreme temperatures.
