Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
2
Job Duties:
To perform various duties associated with the production & harvest of commercial vegetable and melon crops. Workers will perform work according to supervisors instructions. Job involves stooping, bending, lifting and working outside in inclement weather & outdoor temps of below 30 degrees to an excess of 100 degrees. Raises and/or bonuses may be offered to any seasonal worker employed pursuant to this job order, at the company's sole discretion, based on individual factors including work performance, skill, and tenure. Must be able to lift & carry up to 75 lbs Must have legal authority to work in the US. Workers may be required to take random, post-accident, and/or upon suspicion drug test at no cost to worker, post hire. Testing positive or failure to comply may result in immediate termination from employment. General Conditions Applicable to All Crops: Work begins at an assigned time shortly after daylight. Work is performed under various weather conditions. Workers will work and perform repetitive tasks on their feet in bent and stooped positions for long periods of time. Workers will use muscles to lift, push, pull, or carry heavy objects in loading and unloading trucks. All of the tasks in this job description constitute one (1) job; the employer may assign workers to different tasks on any day or to multiple tasks during the same day in the sole judgment of the employer. Workers may drive trucks to haul crops, supplies, tools, or farm workers. Workers may be required to perform work on the farm that is incidental to producing the crops such as repairing buildings, maintaining grounds, operate tractor/farm equipment, incidental crop setup when needed, gardening, etc. This is a very demanding and competitive business in which quality specifications must be rigorously adhered to. Sloppy work cannot and will not be tolerated. Seven to eight hours per day is normal. Workers may be offered more than the specified work in a single day. The worker may be requested but not required to work 12-14 hours per day and/or on the Sabbath or Federal holidays depending upon the conditions in the fields, weather, and maturity of the crop. The employer will designate time for lunch and breaks. Worker may be requested to work Saturday and Sunday during peak times and special needs but not required. These requirements pertain to both H-2A and US workers. Extreme heat, cold or drought may affect working hours. Employer will offer 40 hours/week, weather and crop conditions permitting. Worker will report to work at designated time and place as directed by employer each day. Workers should expect occasional periods of little or no work due to weather, crop, or other conditions beyond the control of the employer. This can occur anytime throughout the season. As a general matter, working hours will be divided between duties related to vegetable and melon crops depending on the employers needs. Given that the demands of agricultural production are unpredictable and determined by factors to include weather, crop conditions, market demands and seasonal task needs and numerous other factors, it is impossible to predict with any degree of accuracy the percentage of time that will be dedicated to any specific task. If an updated AEWR for the occupational classification and geographic area is published in the Federal Register during the work contract, and the updated AEWR is lower than the rate guaranteed on the job order, the employer must continue to pay at least the rate guaranteed on the job order.
