General Work Activities and Responsibilities

We're looking for someone who's a problem-solver and who's not only capable of leading, but who's able to and willing to "dig in" and work alongside other workers, NOT someone who's only able to tell workers what to do. Does this describe you? If so, please apply.

Our Quarry Operations foreman and manager will combine his knowledge of extraction and processing systems with excellent interpersonal and management skills to ensure the profitability of quarry sites. Work takes place in the office and on site.

For your 90-day trial period, we practice a policy of "learned accountability." For all functions covered in one week, you become responsible and accountable for these the following week.

In the office, work activities may include:

  • Ensuring that the quarry's production levels are maintained to schedule.
  • Aligning output with orders to minimize back stock, which over time degrades in quality.
  • Managing the quarry's production plan in accordance with materials required.
  • Coordinating with Headquarters sales and commercial personnel.
  • Setting and monitoring targets for all elements of the production crew.
  • Managing the production process to optimize efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
  • Providing the owners with information and statistics on the quarry's performance.
  • Developing links with local groups and organizations to support the quarry.
  • Managing and regulating the quarry's budget.
  • Maintaining up-to-date records and dealing with a range of paperwork. This includes accountability for accurate BOLs, and that pallets are weighed and tagged daily.
  • Ensuring that key government health and safety legislation (MSHA, EPA, DNR, etc) is implemented throughout the site.
  • Keeping up to date with relevant government legislation and industry developments.
  • Developing and maintaining inspection systems and checklists. Keeping track of asset hours to ensure timely maintenance.
  • Writing development proposals and reports
  • Managing and recruiting staff (all quarry workers must be MSHA trained)
  • Determining the metrics you need to track your day-to-day profits, based on MSHA compliance, output and sales, injuries, fuel, equipment maintenance, labor, and other overhead costs.
  • Keeping up-to-date and ready for presentation all MSHA required reports so that a successful audit can happen at any time without fines.
  • Accountability for logging service and repairs to all equipment within Open ERP.
  • Developing and maintain maintenance schedule for equipment.
  • Reporting any injuries and follow protocol in dealing with worker injuries.
  • Consistently enforcing workers comply with safety rules and regulations.
  • Maintaining federal and state mandated public postings for workers.
  • Delivery of monthly inspection reports to Fleet Manager or the next responsible.

On site, typical activities can include:

  • Closely monitoring all areas of the quarry to ensure that extraction and processing work is carried out to the highest standard working with staff on site to ensure that they are properly trained and efficiently working
  • Dealing with any technical or staffing challenges that arise
  • Undertaking regular site inspections and risk assessments in order to comply with all health and safety regulations
  • Examining the materials produced to ensure that a high quality of product is maintained
  • Assessing equipment and production materials levels
  • Working with Headquarters for ordering new items as required
  • Checking that all vehicles on site are maintained to a good standard

Compensation, working hours, benefits and expected experience include:

  • 10+ years of experience in quarries or directly related jobs, managing similar staff and equipment is a must.
  • Degree is not required but an undergraduate degree in mining would be helpful.
  • Additional income can be earned based on achieving mutually agreed-upon production efficiency or cost-to-produce goals.
  • The industry as a whole tends to work long hours, so the working day often exceeds 45 hour minimum. The role may also include responsibility for being on call in times of emergency or crisis.
  • Mobility is useful at the start of your employment as quarry manager for Star Stone as you are likely to move between quarries before settling on the optimum location.
  • Travel and overnight absences will occasionally be part of everyday working life.
