Laborer Jobs in Southfield, MI

Perform basic tasks on site that require significant physical activity.

They also load and unload materials, install markers to shift traffic patterns around the worksite, and assist craft workers as necessary. They follow plans and instructions from supervisors and other higher-ranking personnel.

The most common types of projects they are involved in are building or tearing down structures, constructing roadways, and digging tunnels and mineshafts.
