Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
10
Job Duties:
Hand harvest, hoe, thin vegetables: zucchini, cucumbers, squash, onions, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, sweet corn, lettuces, kale & cabbage. Lift, move & carry 65 lb veg. boxes and irrigation pipe. Shovel irrigation ditches. Stand, bend, stoop, walk and lift throughout workday. Worker required to keep pace w/majority of workers. Minimum 3 months harvesting experience. Employer pays for random post-employment drug testing. Workday is from 7 AM to 3 PM, Monday through Friday (7 paid hrs/day and 1 hour unpaid lunch hour), and 7 AM to noon on Saturday (5 hrs with one 15-minute break). The worker may be requested but is not required to work as much as 12 hours per day and on holidays depending on weather conditions, crop conditions, market demand or the availability of other workers or other unforeseen circumstances. Worker is not required to work more than 40 hours a week (or 7 hours per day) or on the Sabbath or Federal holidays to meet the guaranteed pay. Because the quality of marketable vegetables (i.e., unbruised, uninjured and hand inspected) is important for the farmer's business model, the employer is requiring workers to have at least 3 months of harvesting experience to ensure that workers have the necessary skills to properly harvest, handle, grade and pack vegetables grown. The quality of the vegetables has a significant influence of determining the level of consumer acceptance. Because consumers perceive that the quality of vegetables are dependent upon appearing crisp, fresh and unbruised and uninjured, special skills and experience are required for the proper harvesting, handling, grading and packing to ensure optimum produce quality at the marketplace. Not all vegetables can be harvested, handled or packed in the same manner. Improper harvesting and rough handling can cause bruising and injure vegetables, which reduces the value of the product at the marketplace and promotes premature decay.
