Facility Helper/ General Labor
The Facilities Crew is a new group of positions that supports all aspects of the Facilities Department at Crossroads. Not to be confused with the former “events staff” positions, these jobs are general laborers, working in support of custodial, building maintenance, technology, transportation and a wide range of campus projects.

- Always working cohesively and positively within a flexible, customer-service-oriented team
- Loading and unloading trucks, and receiving and making deliveries on both campuses

- Installing and rearranging safety signage and instructions throughout campus as needed
- Working with both manual and power tools to dismantle, assemble and make repairs to school equipment
- Moving classroom and other furniture and gear as needed throughout the year and as cohorts and safety regulations change

- A driver’s license with a clean abstract and ability and willingness to drive school vehicles (13-foot stake-bed trucks).
