Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
10
Job Duties:
Prepare the soil for the preharvest, harvesting, and post harvesting of bananas, papayas, and squash. This farm operation mainly cultivates and harvests these products from mid-October to mid-August to avoid hurricane season and second to accommodate the market opportunities offered during the winter and spring months. Most of the workdays are spent on one's feet and constant movement outdoors. Workers are rarely in one place as they move from one field to another for any period. Workers must be able to stand, walk uphill and downhill, sit, sloop, squat, kneel, crouch, bend (from the waist) push, pull, reach, lift and carry items weighing in the range of 5 to 75 pounds. Driving and operating passenger vehicles and farm equipment may be required. Workers are required to work 8 hours per day. The worker may be requested, but not required, to work 10 hours per day and/or on the Sabbath or Federal Holidays depending upon the conditions in the fields, weather, and maturity of the crop; in such case overtime norms will be applied, if applicable. The manager or supervisor will notify workers at the end of the workday if there is any change in start and time anticipated hours of work for the following day. Regular attendance by all workers during schedule hours of the workday and /or work period is expected. Unsatisfactory attendance: including reporting late, excessive request to leave before the end of the workday, doing work outside the scope of the H2A Visa, not abiding housing, or transport regulations, etc., may be cause for disciplinary action. Workers must call their manager or supervisor as far in advance possible prior to the start of the workday if they do not expect to be in on time.
