Southborough job listings: Harvard Depository Operations; Plus Town and Public School positions

I received another request to post a job available in Southborough.

As long as I’m running a job hiring post, I checked up again on government listings and found a few. Unsurprisingly, there are also several posted openings in the school system – though most of those are temporary and/or part-time.

There must be more to the position for the town maintenance worker. $45-$65,000? The most that position should pay is $30-$32,000 at $16 an hour. I interface with these guys all over Massachusetts every day and that’s what they make. Unless there’s licenses involved like electrical plumbing etc. they are a general maintenance person. In the town provides an abundance of benefits and retirement.
