You will follow blend sheets to make the appropriate recipe for the customer. You will be responsible for product inventories. You may drive a tender truck and pull NH3 wagons. You will perform equipment maintenance tasks, so you must possess good mechanical skills.
The ideal candidate will be someone who has basic knowledge of agricultural practices and who can read and follow directions. Preference will be given to those with experience in an agronomy retail plant, but will look at lesser experienced candidates.
This job is an hourly position. You will receive overtime, plus medical and retirement benefits. This job will require you to work typical agricultural seasonal hours. A CDL will be helpful, but not required at the time of hire, but you will need to get it.
