If you go to their website you can download a form or go Monday and fill one out. The plant is located on 315 near powell. The hours of operation will be 7:00pm to 7:00am 12 hour shifts for 6 days and your last day will be 11:00pm till 7:00am a measly 8 hour shift. Then you have a week off to fish or do what you want. I currently work the dayshift 7am to 7pm and it is great for fishing. Everyother week I am a fishing machine. Yes 80 hours is a long week but having a week off every other week is great. Your week would start on a friday work sat, sun, mon, tue, wed, thur then you are done till the next friday. I copied the job qualifications and dueties from the county website. We do a lot of grounds work in the summer which they seem to have not indicated. The night guy does a lot of trimming (till dark), cleaning bulidings, collecting samples, monitoring equipment, data entry and simple lab tests. Obtaining an epa opetrator wastwater license will earn you more money.There are 4 licenses that can be obtained and the county currently gives a 5 percent increase in pay with each license. To get certified you have to have I believe 1 year in wastewater work or a college degree whichever. The license is a test of 50 questions that deal with wastewater. These tests are very doable but you have to study. If you are currently looking for a job this could be a good way to get your foot in the door. The wastewater industry is expanding with all the new developments being built. There will be new plants and more positions opening up in the next 5 years. If wastwater is not your thing we may be adding additional people to our maintenance staff as these new facilities are built. Just thought I would let you guys know about the job, I have little say in who gets hired but in the past have had a chance to look at applications and say If it were me I would check this individual out. Anyone got any questions let me know, sorry about the short notice.
