Forklift Operator - Seasonal (Newberg)

compensation: $15/hour
employment type: full-time

Experience a wine harvest in Oregon’s beautiful, lush, Willamette Valley this fall! A to Z Wineworks seeks seasonal forklift operators to assist with the 2019 vintage for the A to Z and handcrafted REX HILL wine brands. The Forklift Operator will assist with receiving and unloading harvest trailers and delivery vehicles, organizing and cleaning the cargo area and bins.

At A to Z Wineworks, the harvest experience is intense and diverse. You’ll earn your bragging rights. You can expect to work hard, in an environment that values teamwork and the harvest experience with fellow workers from around the world. Benefits include a catered meal a day at the peak of harvest, wine education, shared events, camaraderie, learning and, most importantly, sharing in a great company culture. A to Z has been repeatedly named a Best Company in Oregon.

Our forklift operator role is expected to begin when we begin receiving grapes, around mid-September, and continue for the period of time we are receiving fruit, usually around 6 weeks, depending on the season. Of paramount importance, is that you can accept a flexible schedule, which will almost certainly include long hours, overtime, and weekend work. You’ll also need to bring to the role the ability to stand and move for at least ten hours; to lift, bend, rotate, move and carry up to 40 pounds over the course of the shift and on a repetitive basis; and to climb stairs, ladders and work on catwalks. Prior harvest experience is always appreciated but not required. We value curious, collaborative, hard workers who thrive in a team environment and are eager to pitch in wherever needed. We hope you consider applying with us. Interested candidates are requested to submit a resume and cover letter.

A to Z Wineworks is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
