Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
88
Job Duties:
Duties include blueberry harvesting and general farm labor. Other duties may include grading, field packing, weeding, pruning, maintenance and cleanup. This will be done under extreme weather conditions and physical conditions such as heavy bending, stooping and lifting. Blueberry Harvesting: Workers will move down assigned rows picking all ripe berries, placing them in buckets. Once full, each bucket weights approximately 6 lbs. When buckets are filled, the worker will immediately carry the bucket to the box truck. At the truck, workers will dump each filled bucket into a lug where the worker will sort through the harvested berries and remove any berries that do not meet the company's quality/food safety standards. Each lug will then be inspected by the worker's supervisor. Each worker will receive a picking ticket for each harvested lug when the supervisor has inspected and approved the lug. Any lug not approved will be returned to the worker to be re-graded. Workers must pick a minimum of 25 pounds per hour. General Farm Labor: Some of the work required from the worker to be performed that is incidental to farming crops listed in this application may be described as performing hand cultivation duties, weeding or hoeing crops, cleaning, repairing seed beds and racks, setting up and moving irrigation pipes and equipment. The employer will provide the tools necessary to perform the described job duties without charge to the worker. The employer will charge the workers for reasonable costs related to the worker's refusal or negligent failure to return the tools or due to such worker's willful damage or destruction of the tools.
