Are you looking for a rewarding and satisfying career in the heavy highway construction industry? DSI wants to hear from you! We offer a competitive salary and exceptional benefits package including 401k, health and dental benefits, and more.
We currently have openings for truck drivers, laborers, and operators.
Grinder operators drive a large machine which is equipped with several diamond blades underneath it. These blades are 4’ wide and are used to grind a specific amount of concrete off the top of new and existing roadways. An operator will manipulate levers to adjust the settings to grind the appropriate amount off the surface. Grinder operators are required to have a CDL A license (with tanker endorsement) as our machines are hooked directly to a semi tractor to be mobilized on and off project sites as well as over the road from one job location to the next.
Water truck drivers drive the water truck which is used to keep the grinding machines always supplied with water. (A grinder is a machine equipped with a series of blades underneath it, used to grind a layer of concrete on new and existing roadways). A water truck driver will fill up the water truck with water from a specified source/location and drive it to fill the grinder on the project site. Once there, the water truck driver will use the boom to fill the tank of the grinder.
A slurry truck is a tanker truck that is connected to our grinding machines via a hose. The hose is used to vacuum up the residue (slurry) that results when the water used to cool the blades on the grinder mixes with the concrete grindings. A slurry truck driver will drive along with the driver at a slow speed, approximately 10-20 feet per minute, depending on the project. A slurry truck driver may have to get in/out of the truck from time to time to ensure hose connections are good, ensure there is nothing in front of the grinder, and check tank fullness. Slurry truck drivers are required to have a CDL A license (with tanker endorsement).

A swap out truck driver will meet a slurry truck driver with an empty tank and swap for their full tank. The full tank will then be driven to the appropriate location, as designated per project, to empty the truck. There are 3-4 ports on the side of the truck that will be opened to dispense the slurry. At the end of the shift, the tank will need to be rinsed out in preparation for the next day’s use. Swap out truck drivers are required to have a CDL A license (with tanker endorsement).
