Labor Foreman II (Landfill)

Recruitment #20-CI5050L-02

Nature of Work

The fundamental reason this classification exists is to supervise work crews engaged in manual and semi-skilled labor performing a variety of Landfill maintenance tasks in the City of Montgomery.   The major work duties include planning for an assignment, directing activities on a work site, documenting project activities, and supervising a work crew.  Incumbents work under general direction and are generally in charge of the crew, plan and carry out assignments with considerable independence, and have some latitude in developing procedures and methods.  Assignments are received at the beginning of the shift and the foreman typically prioritizes the assignments.  Supervisors are contacted for guidance in cases of unexpected occurrences or unanticipated situations.  Errors made during the performance of tasks can result in safety hazards to the general public and the work crew. Labor Foremen II are distinguished from Labor Foremen I by the level of skill possessed by their subordinates.  For example, Foremen II typically supervise employees in classifications such as Equipment Operator, Heavy Equipment Operator and Labor Foreman I.  Labor Foremen I typically supervise Service Maintenance Workers.
