Successful Central Illinois grain company seeks a driven and dedicated grain operations professional to oversee all outside operations at this modern truck and rail loading facility.
The successful candidate will have a passion for and take great pride in running a clean, efficient grain operation. Successful completion of at least three to five years of hands-on grain operations experience is required. An ability to look things over, clearly think problems through and figure out a solution, and then get done what needs done is key. Some computer skills to run the PLC and temp cables will be very helpful.
You will utilize your skills in overseeing all outside operations at a facility that: loads 90 to 110 car trains; has over six million bushels of storage capacity; is essentially a new, modern facility with everything operated off a PLC system; offers three high speed dump pits and two dryers; typically has 2-3 additional full-time operations team members with more on-site when loading trains and during harvest; and houses a shop for a maintenance team that can assist with issues as they arise.
Responsibilities will include overseeing the people on-site; keeping the facilities clean, neat, and organized; properly segregating grain; maintenance of all equipment and ensuring it is ready to go at harvest and whenever needed; and being diligent in quality control (grain grading, not co-mingling grain, etc.), drying, and blending to achieve the quality standards the company strives for.
You will also work with other team members including the Safety Coordinator to maintain company safety guidelines, make sure all staff on site are working safely within those guidelines, and by completing all bin entry reports and appropriate paper work as required.
The facility maintains an active pace throughout much of the year. During the harvest season, a large majority of their annual farmer volume is taken in. After the first of the year, they often transfer grain to this facility as the market dictates to maximize the benefit of loading unit trains.
This position is located in an excellent mid-sized rural community with good schools and a lot of activity; there are also major cities nearby. It will provide ample opportunity to learn and grow professionally, and you will be given opportunities to attend various training programs on industry and safety topics to broaden your knowledge base and better yourself.
Compensation will be hourly with overtime pay and excellent benefits including a bonus program. Annual compensation will likely be in the $60-$70,000 range.
