Looking for an equipment operator to apply Chipco Choice. Chipco Choice is a restricted use pesticide used to control mole crickets. It is applied by pulling a machine with a tractor which then slices the granular chemical into the ground.
Typically we apply one golf course per day Monday thru Friday. The Chipco Choice "Season" runs now thru July. There is abundant overtime, which pays time and a half. There is also overnight travel occasionally. When out of town all hotel and meal expenses will be incurred by the company.
Looking for a candidate with general golf course knowledge and a Commercial Drivers License. The CDL must be at least a Class A restricted.
A typical day would be leaving the home yard at 7am. You will most likely be driving a Ford F-450 with a 30 foot gooseneck trailer(hints the CDL) Next you would drive to the jobsite , often an hour or two, then work on the golf course applying for 6-8 hours, before finally driving home or to a hotel. Then repeating the next day. Job locations fluctuate daily but are typically between St. Petersburg and Naples.
