About General Laborer Jobs

How would you like to turn your ambition into job satisfaction? As a General Laborer at Loram, you’ll get paid to deliver advanced equipment, technology and services for major railroads throughout North America for a leader in the supply of railroad maintenance machinery and services—and you’ll never be bored. Our people are out there rain or shine, and no two days ever look the same, and they know that if they work hard, they’ll go places.

Starting pay ranges on average $2,500 up to $6,000 monthly during peak times depending on the machine and project you are assigned to!

The contributions of each and every employee are rewarded with everything they need for a bright future, including a comprehensive benefits package with supplemental Medical, Dental, Life, Disability and AD&D Insurance, as well as a retirement fund with a highly competitive company match.

Typical work hours are 12-14 hours per day and 70-75 hours per week depending on operational needs, but you’ll get 2 weeks of unpaid time off following each 6-12 week rotation. You won’t be expected to relocate; however, the jobs won’t be based near the area you reside in. While we cover all work-related lodging and transportation to and from each job assignment, you would be responsible for all personal expenses such as food, phone, and laundry.
