Physical Demands

: Work requires concentration and coordination in order to manipulate levers, cables, and valves as necessary for the operation of equipment and attachments. The various strained and unnatural positions required to operate equipment, together with the constant vibration, jerking and jolting encountered produces a high degree of mental and physical fatigue. Duties require significant periods of standing and walking, as well as moderately heavy lifting.

Work Conditions

: Work is performed at sites with simple terrain problems. The operator is subject to heat, fumes, cold, snow, rain, dirt, dust and noise. Duties involve exposure to hazards such as: operating equipment on slippery and icy roads, working under embankments and around slide areas, working in the vicinity of swollen rivers and streams, performing night work during emergencies, and working at sites with a continuous presence of moving vehicles.

This position is located in the Operations branch within the Division of Administration at the Vale District of the Bureau of Land Management, with a duty station at Vale Oregon. The primary purpose of this position is to operate equipment such as road graders, bulldozers, front end loaders, excavators, backhoes, bobcats, dump trucks, compactors, water trucks, and essential road building equipment for minor and major non-paved road maintenance/construction operations. These roads are often in mountainous terrain with steep treacherous slopes in remote areas. Road maintenance and construction operations typically consist of cleaning and pulling ditches, excavating and hauling rock, placing rock, and grading roads to a crown. There are occasions when new roads are installed requiring significant dozer and excavator work. The scope of the road work is extremely vast and would challenge a seasoned operator on a regular basis. Other equipment operation duties would be fire line repair, snow removal, culvert installation or repair, bridge work, dam repair, pipeline installation, and various other operating duties. Due to the remote nature of the Vale districts land mass this position requires a minimum of 50% travel away from Vale, Oregon. The remote nature of the work locations pose many challenges in communication, supplies, amenities, and other comforts that will not be available. Having the mindset and ability to operate autonomously in a self-sufficient manner is a highly valued attribute.

Travel Required

Occasional travel - Frequent travel may be required.
