The STM Is Hiring Students To Clean The Metro And Buses & The Pay Is More Than $29/Hour
If you're a student looking for a well-paying summer job, look no further. The STM is hiring students to work in the maintenance crew at more than $29 per hour. This hiring spree comes as the company ramps up cleaning efforts in response to deconfinement.
The STM is looking for students who can be available full-time for all three shifts, day, evening or night, for the duration of their contract.
There are three types of maintenance jobs you might be doing if you apply: metro car cleaners, metro station attendants and cleaners, and bus and transport centre attendants.
All applicants must be enrolled as a full-time student for the winter 2020 semester in an institution approved by the Ministry of Education.
You must be at least 16 years old, have completed secondary 4, and have at least one proof of work experience.
Several positions require a Class 5 driver's license but having one is not required to apply.
The STM wants all candidates to respect its mandates of "autonomy, collaboration, respect for directives and instructions, thoroughness, customer sense and sense of responsibility."
At $29.19 per hour, this is one of the better-paying summer jobs out there.
The STM says contracts would last from mid-June to late-August.

Since the start of the health crisis, the STM has been ramping up its cleaning efforts to make sure all riders feel safe.
With summer just around the corner, the STM anticipates that many more people will be taking the bus and metro.
With more people, comes more risk of exposure, so the company is doing everything it can to ensure its maintenance crew is properly staffed.
As part of its deconfinement plans, the STM is not only stepping up cleaning efforts, but also handing out reusable face masks to all passengers.
