We currently are taking applications for openings in our Traffic Control Apprenticeship Program. Stripe Rite is Washington State’s Premier pavement marking company and the job openings are in our Yakima office. This is a Washington State Approved, four-year apprentice program leading to a journey level Certification as a Traffic Control Striper.
The starting pay is $15.00 per hour ($17.00 if you have a CDL with endorsements). Our preference would be for Applicants with a CDL and the proper endorsements. This is not a strict driving job as the apprenticeship training includes work out on pavement surfaces. Duties would include all aspects of pavement markings, installation of signs, precast and extruded curbing, asphalt seal coating and crack sealing, asphalt patch work and operation of mobile sweeping equipment.
The pay moves up automatically based on hours worked and completion of training requirements. The Journey level rate is $30.83 for public works projects and is achieved through the apprenticeship training. This is a union job with appropriate company paid benefits. This is a labor-intensive position at times, so physical fitness is a prerequisite for hiring.
