Help Wanted: Snow Plow Drivers

The St. Charles County Highway Department is looking to hire a few good men and women ahead of winter. Highway Superintendent Ted Dunkmann says it’s a rewarding job.

“If you’re looking for a job that’s hands-on and something you can look back at the end of the day and be satisfied with the work that you’ve done and know that you’re helping the residents of the community of St. Charles County—this is a good job for you,” Dunkmann said. 

Dunkmann says qualified applicants need a commercial driver’s license with a minimum of Class B. Experience is helpful, but not a deal breaker.

“We prefer people who have some experience either driving a dump truck or having done snow removal, but even people without experience—we’ll train you.”

Salary range for a Street Maintenance Worker II is $43,016.14 – $63,856.26 depending on qualifications.

Salary range for intermittent snowplow drivers is $12.85-$16.76.

The St. Charles County Highway Department has a fleet of some 50 snowplow trucks that cover 1,400 lane miles in the County, plus another 400 lane miles in small towns within the county.

Dunkmann says they have plenty of salt for the winter ahead, and despite the open positions, have contingency plans to use highway inspectors, mechanics and supervisors to cover snowplow routes if needed.
