Rick Franklin Corporation is currently hiring for a full-time equipment operator. RFC is a construction contractor, trucking company, and 24/7 emergency response contractor for local railroads covering the western United States. This position will travel to various locations in a company provided vehicle so a valid drivers license is required. If you enjoy traveling this is a great position for you!
RFC hauls its own equipment to various locations to assist the railroads with train derailments caused by tunnel collapses, slides, fires, snow removal, or any other form of service interruption. Duties for equipment operators include loading, unloading, and operating of excavators, loaders, bulldozers, side booms, etc. This position requires the ability to work under the direction of a job site supervisor, and work well with a variety of personalities in a fast paced, constantly changing environment.
In addition to service interruptions we also perform maintenance work for the railroads as requested. When not traveling, there is work at the RFC yard performing scrap clean up and other various projects.
Again, this is a âª24/7â¬ on call position, which may not be ideal for everyone. Travel can vary from one night out of town in Hermiston up to a month (or more) staying in Oakridge. RFC works with employees to try to accommodate holidays and special events. Local jobs we have responded to include the Eagle Creek fire in the Gorge last September, the fire in Lakehead, California, and the recent train derailment off Highway 20 between Albany and Corvallis.
Benefits include employer-paid medical, dental, and vision insurance for the employee, 401k with company match, paid holidays, and one week of paid sick leave per year. There is also a "railroad bonus" of $2.00 per hour when employees are on an emergency status job. Company also provides the option for employees to purchase: short and long term disability, life insurance, and legal services. Wage is dependent upon experience.
