Longshoreman

Longshoreman

 

Position: Full time

 

Job Description

You’re responsible as a longshoreman for the containers, crates, and boxes that you load and unload. You will mark and identify them, log the number of containers, check for damaged or opened shipments, and repackage if necessary. In addition, you process handling and shipping documents for tracking purposes. Inspecting, repairing, and operating the machinery used to lift and move the cargo is also on your duty roster.

This job requires a significant amount of manual labor, so being physically fit is extremely important. Good coordination, dexterity, reflexes, agility, and balance are also vital because the combination of large bodies of water, huge ships, and heavy equipment creates a high-risk environment (and then add the weather). Problem-solving skills as well as the ability to give and follow directions are other beneficial qualities to have for this job.

Qualifications:

Ability to read and write English.

  • High school diploma or equivalent. Basic math skills.
  • Ability to lift and carry up to 50 pounds.
  • Proven leadership abilities.
  • No experience required.
  • Able to continually push, and pull heavy materials weighing up to 100 pounds.

This longshoreman position requires individual(s) who are unafraid of heights with the ability to work in extreme temperatures unloading ships and rail cars. Successful completion of a background and drug screen is required.
