Vegetation Management Technician – Candidates should live or be willing to commute to Pearland, TX area daily.
NaturChem is seeking qualified, hardworking individuals who are looking for a family-oriented company, who love working outside with equipment like tractors and heavy-duty trucks, and who want to achieve big results while learning and growing within a team environment.
Vegetation Management Technicians:
Our Vegetation Management (VM) Technicians come from all walks of life (retail/warehousing, beverage distribution, and fitness training are some examples). Our technicians service customers throughout our territory covering fourteen states. Our services include herbicide applications for growth regulations as well as mechanical services like cutting and clearing. We train all employees on-site. We always expect our technicians to follow our safety policies in all circumstances and lead by example. This is not a landscaping job. We use heavy trucks and equipment and we have EPA regulations that must be followed.
Working from a heavy-duty truck you’ll be working outdoors applying herbicide to control vegetation for our customers (transportation, utility, industrial, etc.). There will be an opportunity to learn a variety of services and equipment. A “jack of all trades” is preferred.
