Our client, an Irrigation Company in Central Phoenix that distributes irrigation supplies to farms, businesses constructions sites and more are looking for an experienced yardman.
We have an IMMEDIATE opening for an Experienced "Yard man". This position is similar to warehouse work but it is mostly done "outside (there are overhead covers over much of where you work but are in the sun a lot). We prefer someone with FORKLIFT EXPERIENCE but not required if you have considerable other similar shipping and receiving experience in a yard or a warehouse. "Medium" physical lifting requirements but tolerance to quite a bit of heat (in the summer) is definitely needed. There are Metal Coverings over much of the product but you are out in the sun a great deal (The company also provides hats and lots of water). It is also a "get dirty kind of job" so it not for the weak or timid person but not overly hard either.
Yardmen usually start at $12.00 to $13.00 per hour but if you have industry or very good longevity at jobs or similar work experience, you could start as high as $14.00. Regardless of what you start at, note that you will receive a review and pay increase after your 90 day (3 month) probation period based on your performance (usually $1.00 to $2.00 but can be more for those that excel).
Prior Irrigation or Sprinkler Experience or work in a similar yard or industry experience (lumber, piping, brick, plumbing, landscaping environment) is preferred but any good yard or warehouse experience will do. Depending upon your performance and demonstration of your job knowledge you can get additional raises before your annual review.
This position is at the Central Phoenix location..
We also have opportunities for individuals that have Experience operating those mechanically inclined having worked with a lot of hand tools or lawn and construction equipment and those who have worked as Mechanics.
Great company that is growing and been in business for 40 years that offers good benefits and gives GOOD RAISES for those that perform well and is a large enough company with 4 locations to move up if you have "more" to offer. This can include becoming a lead or supervisor in the yard or moving to counter or outside sales once you know the product well or into the office for those with good Admin skills. We also have driving positions that you could be moved into if you have a clean driving record and have or can get a DOT Medical Car but this job is a yardman position and those are positions you can move in to.
A criminal background will be performed in addition to a DRUG TEST and we prefer someone with reliable transportation to get to work ON TIME EVERY DAY!
Sorry, but NO Felonies allowed for any of the jobs per our Client's request.
A criminal background check will be performed in addition to a DRUG TEST prior to employment.
