Do you want to help build the foundation of our community? A career as a pile driver might be right for you. Pile drivers install, drive, repair and remove the deep piles, foundations, steel sheeting and shoring on which buildings, bridges, docks and more depend. They also build retaining walls that hold back dirt and water for bridge construction, tunnel, and bulkheads. Pile drivers direct large, crane-like machines that drive or drill metal, concrete or wood piling into the ground. They frequently weld and cut large metal beams and sheeting. Pile drivers are typically the first ones on a construction site and may be required to work nights or weekends on projects such as roadways and bridges.
