Conrad Yelvington Distributors, a CRH company, supplies and distributes aggregate materials such as granite, river gravel, limestone, natural sand, and more. This rail served aggregate distribution network covers Florida, Southern Mississippi, South Carolina, and Alabama.

Position Purpose:

After successfully completing the job and equipment review / training and safety program, the Equipment Operator (hereafter referred to as EO) will be prepared to move, load and handle materials in the plant/terminal/quarry area with the use of heavy equipment. The EO will use large earth-moving machines, such as bulldozers, backhoes, excavators and front-end loaders and/or other huge machinery to lift, haul, push, roll, load and move aggregate and aggregate related materials.

Communication between the EO, dispatcher and yard/quarry foreman/manager is crucial, so job briefings will be held throughout each day to insure safety and efficiency.

The most important duty of the EO is to run the huge, expensive machines safely and capably. Before each workday, the EO makes sure the machinery is well lubricated and tires, belts, pumps, hoses and cables are in good condition.

While operating the machine, the EO must always watch out for the people and other equipment nearby. During the daily routine of the EO, difficult maneuvers are often performed in tricky situations, such as grading on steep embankments or operating around other large equipment (large trucks, locomotives, railcars, etc.). In addition, the EO must always be aware of pedestrians and other workers in the terminal area. For these reasons, the EO must be cool and collected in situations that might rattle other people

  • Ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with employees and the public.

  • Ability to work long hours out-of-doors, occasionally under adverse weather conditions.

  • Ability to communicate effectively using speaking, hearing, writing, and vision skills.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Ability to operate heavy and complex equipment requiring skill and the exercise of independent judgment.

  • Need to insure that equipment is operating in a safe and sound manner and capacity to keep records pertaining to such operations.

  • Ability to perform manual labor incidental to the assigned task.

  • Desire to perform related work as required.

  • Education: Completion of 8th grade, graduation from high school or possession of an acceptable equivalency diploma preferred.

  • Experience: Three years of experience in public works maintenance and/or construction work, one year of which involves the operation of a variety of heavy equipment. A comparable amount of directly related experience may be substituted for the minimum educational requirements.
