Well-known, Colorado Springs-based underground boring contractor is seeking a bore
operator/locator to join our growing team. We are actively engaged in long-term
projects involving fiber optic and cable installation along with underground utilities. If
you enjoy working outdoors and a positive work environment, you’ll love the
camaraderie among our top-notch crews. We’re big enough to provide year-round work
stability, even during the pandemic, yet small enough to really care about our
employees. Reliability and trust are core values at our company. In addition to your
base pay, you will also be eligible to participate on our company-wide medical program
after 60-days. Occasional Saturday work may be necessary during peak season.
You should be able to effectively operate a backhoe with close tolerance digs near
water lines, live electrical lines, cables, and piping and have prior experience with
installing cable and all related aspects including handling and positioning cable spools,
cable feeds, drops, reclamation, and clean-up. You should be comfortable with doing
pick and shovel work and either know how, or be willing to learn, to locate for and run a
directional boring machine in both urban and rural areas at challenging site locations in
all types of weather and soil conditions. This is a physically demanding job that will
keep you in shape and involves a lot of stooping and bending. You should be good with
a shovel and be able to travel to and from rural job sites as required. As an integral
member of a crew, you should be absolutely reliable at all times and focused on the
work with no drama or personal issues that will impact your effectiveness. You should
also be focused on attaining daily targets for lineal feet laid. We’re looking for a couple
of years of experience, but if you’re new and really want to work, we’ll give you a shot
and provide the training. You should also have a clean driving record to be insurable
under our company policy and be able to pass a drug screen, as we do pre-employment
and random testing.
Our pay structure consists of an hourly wage rate depending upon your experience and
there is plenty of overtime for those who want it. We also provide a company subsidy
on medical coverage for you and your family after 60 days. A generous paid vacation
policy provides one week after your first year and two weeks after your third year.
We also provide safety clothing and equipment for use on the job. Prior boring, splicing,
or drop experience, current MSHA certification, and a valid CDL are all plusses, but not
required. We will also help you get your CDL through the company. Please forward a
resume or summary of experience for immediate consideration.
