Show up and work for us whenever your schedule allows! We do insist once you commit to a storm, you work the entire shift. If you know you have upcoming court, day care or school issues, or another job that interferes with getting the job done with us, please skip that storm.

We use an app to clock in and out of work (run on the driver’s phone). When you are filling out your form, check the “email me”.
What changes is CAM Services making due to COVID-19?
Please make sure you bring a face covering with you in order to work. Do not come to work with us if you have been in contact with anyone awaiting results on a COVID-19 test or who has been diagnosed. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms, we ask that you stay home till you are well again.
Are there any other tips or advice?
We pay the rates we pay because it’s a tough job. Prepare yourself, and it will be a lot easier!! Dress warm (layers, waterproof outerwear, waterproof insulated boots, hat, insulated gloves) pack a lunch and bring plenty of water!
