Production Worker – Truss - T1HRJP00000918
Rotational Program in the following areas
Assembly Personnel: Performs one or mere repetitive jobs on an assembly line or sub-assembly line to produce products. Involves the insertion of materials, clamping, fitting parts, and the use of some hand tools and measurement skills. Entry-level position requiring some training.
Picker: Selects lumber grades and lengths in accordance with “pick” lists provided by truss technicians to ensure component and other saws are able to continually cut lumber.
Set-Up Personnel: Under the direction of the foreman or crew leader this person makes the necessary adjustments to the production tables or machinery to conform to the designed truss shapes or pattern. Not normally engaged in the production of the assembly but responsible for the accuracy of the assembly, as well as conformance to drawing details. Requires several years of production experience or field construction experience. The above-average position in the shop requires attention to detail, print reading and math skills.
Stacker: Operates on the end of the finished roller line or production line sorting trusses per type and order to keep the finished product organized. May band or help band trusses as well as mark the types of truss, attach warning or bearing tags, make visual inspections of the truss quality. Make sheathe gable end or nail multiple girder trusses.
Catcher at Saws: Handles material on the off-load conveyor side of the component saw. Cooperates with component saw operator and may be required to check material for accuracy of cutting set up. Stacks and loads chords, web members and truss parts on shop carts or buggies. Bands material, marks the order number and type and moves to the area for forklift or conveyor material removal. Utilize a tape measure to confirm exact length/angles on 2 x 4 material output from an automated saw. At a fast pace, remove cut material from the machine. Grasp material and stack up neatly on a portable cart. Wrap material for transportation.
Sawyer: Operates one or more type saws such as the Metra cut saw, radial arms saw, swing saw, bevel saw, shop saw, table saw, etc. for the production of specialized assembly parts. Derives information from building materials or cut list.
Web Saw Operator: Similar in scope to a component saw operator, except primarily limited to web member cutting. Can operate a small version or standard version of a component saw. The work is typically less strenuous than that of a component saw operator since most components are limited to 2x4 material. Similar skill requirements to a component saw operator.
