Hello everyone!!!! Hubby is seeking for a entry-level job as a heavy equipment operator in the Houston/Spring area. Is there alot of construction going on? If so, do you know the name of the construction company(ies) that might be hiring? Any suggestions/ideas are really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I know zip about Spring, but construction is booming in Houston. Check out chron.com and monster.com for jobs, or just drive down I-10 or 59 South for specific companies. If I were him I would just show up on site and ask to speak to the guy in charge. Everyone likes a go-getter.

Good luck!

Question: Do you think construction companies are going to hire an entry-level worker to start working on heavy equipment? Aren't they suppose to start with a shovel, then a flimpsy mini-tractor that looks like it's about to flip backwards, then maybe move on to a big yellow tractor that bears it's name, Catapillar. Finally, if he's lucky, then he may get that 6-figure (unions, pifft) job in controlling a crane at a mega-shipping dock?

Bike4Life.....thanks and no thanks for the information. He has his heavy equipment operator certificate so I don't think he needs to start with a D1???
