SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is hiring 1,000 temporary workers for spring and summer of 2019 in Oregon and Washington. The Statesman Journal reports the federal agency announced the openings on Friday. Applications will be accepted between Sept. 17 and Oct. 12 for positions in fields including firefighting, recreation, natural resources, timber, engineering, visitor services and archaeology. Forest Service spokeswoman Catherine Caruso says application dates this year are earlier than previous years in order to allow the agency to ensure background checks are complete before start dates. Most of the jobs listed pay $11 to $20 per hour, require 40 hours per week and include health insurance. There are open positions in 16 National Forests, 59 District Offices, a National Scenic Area, and a National Grassland in Oregon and Washington.
