We are a single stream recycling center.
The job we need to fill is a warehouse worker for the end of the line where the product is baled, staged and then shipped.
Recyclables are sorted into different bins and as those bins fill, they need to be emptied into the baler. Operating the baler takes a bit of thought and planning. There are a lot of moving parts and a variety of things going on. You wouldn’t want to end up with a 12″ bale, nor would you want one that was 8′. You need to plan accordingly. The bales are offloaded, staged, and then eventually loaded on outbound trucks. We have a skid steer and fork lifts to help this process along.
I interviewed a guy yesterday who was a forklift operator of 18 years. A forklift lifer is NOT necessarily the person I am looking for. The person that I am looking for—In the end wants more from his career than just to be left alone with his fork truck in a big lonely warehouse. He’d be happy to do it for a couple of years if it means he can have a shot at something bigger in the future.
The downside: The conditions are not necessarily for everybody. The space is unconditioned and it’s pretty dirty.
The upside: The people are for real. A modest size management team in a mid-sized building. The recycling industry is growing fast. They just earned three 10 year contracts that will double, maybe triple the size of the business. This job presents a great opportunity. Inside trivia—most of the management team at this company started out working on the floor.
The current position is for second shift, however it is not unusual for us to run around the clock.
Starting pay is between 13.00/hr—14.00/hr. After 4 months, you would be up for a substantial raise and full benefits.
Don’t apply for this one just because it says forklift. Do it because you eventually want more than this.Register now to learn about jobs like this
