Job Duties:
Heavy labor field worker to harvest (Tender Leaf) Tender Leaf: Employees spot check, sort, stack, fill and load tender leaf in the field. Spotting is done by walking in uneven furrows in front of a harvesting platform machine or belt. Under the direction of the field supervisor employees check for any foreign material such as trash and move irrigation pipes from one furrow to another. The harvest machine or belt then cuts produce and transports it through a conveyor where employees sort and fill bins. Once the bins are filled, they are pushed onto conveyor belt for loaders to close/cover and stack on the pallet. The bins for the product are constructed by unfolding and bending the material as designed to form a box. Bins are labeled and marked as required. The process is repeated. The bins are lifted then stacked onto pallets on the deck of the harvester or trailer. Bins with the product can weigh up to 300-400 lbs. Empty bins pallets can weigh up to 95 lbs.; a forklift carries the empty bins and full bin pallets onto a trailer. Agricultural Equipment Operators are responsible for setting up, maintaining, and inspecting equipment prior to the start of the day. Workers will assist in preparing harvest machines for immediate field operation, or movement to a new location. Workers will operate tractors, tractor drawn machinery and harvest machines to harvest crops. Will operate tractors and harvesters through the furrows, towing loaded trailers on and off the field harvested area. They are also responsible for the following day, such as the setup of the tractors and harvesters, cartons for the harvested crops, fuel for the tractor, and general service of the equipment being used at the field. Workers are required to have basic knowledge of driving tractors and harvesters, must pass tractor/machine safety training, and demonstrate the ability to operate tractors and harvesters in a safe manner. Workers may occasionally and/or sporadically perform duties associated with and directly related to the primary duties. Such work will be temporary and unsubstantial agricultural labor. Workers may occasionally and/or sporadically perform duties associated with and directly related to the primary duties such as cleaning up field before during and after harvest, picking up trash, discarding cartons and assisting as safety monitor when equipment is turning in the field to begin a new pass. The company may require the employee under work restrictions to perform alternative work for the period under the restrictions (e.g., sweeping, housing assistance, painting, general clean-up, etc.) If an employee is injured while on the job, the Company will provide a temporary work assignment that will be as closely related to the job duties described herein, while the employee recovers from a work-related illness which meets with physicians’ clearance to return to work under specific limitations.
