The Maintenance Division plays a key role in our mission to serve Kent County with a safe, reliable and efficient transportation network. Operating out of four different complexes, the employees in this division are responsible for maintaining and upgrading over 430 miles of state highways, country primary roads, local paved roads and county local gravel roads, and subdivision streets. This includes plowing snow, crack sealing, pothole patching, grading, drainage work, ditching, culvert and guardrail repair, tree trimming and vegetation control.
THE ROAD AHEAD:
The Maintenance Division is a great place to start your career with KCRC. Employees are expected to work hard, learn, develop and grow into other positions within KCRC. Although our job openings for operators, foremen, superintendents, and assistant directors are filled internally, we search externally for qualified, hard-working and enthusiastic candidates to fill our entry level positions, including seasonal and full-time road maintenance workers.
To be considered for full time employment as a road maintenance worker, a candidate must have:
- High school diploma or GED
- Six (6) months of job-related experience such as road maintenance work, farming, commercial landscaping, tree cutting, patching/paving or construction
- Ability to work day or night shifts, long hours and overtime, as needed
- Clean driving record;ability to pass a post-offer drug screen and background check
- Valid driver’s license + Class A CDL with the N Endorsement to drive and operate trucks
If you currently do not hold a CDL or have the correct endorsement, that is ok. You will still be considered if you are willing and able to obtain the necessary licensing.
Seasonal positions are a great way to gain work experience and exposure to the Maintenance Division. Depending on the volume of work, seasonal employees may work during the spring/summer construction season or off and on throughout the year. To be considered for seasonal employment, you must be 18 years or older, have a valid driver’s license, and be able to pass a post-offer drug screen. We look for dependable go-getters who are willing to go above and beyond to get the job done.
