Experience in operating farm equipment or heavy equipment in the armed forces is helpful for getting a job. Knowing safe work practices, including laws and regulations, is a plus. Employers may require applicants to have a current driver's license and take drug screening prior to and during employment. Construction site helpers are hired for summer or part-time work.
