Who’s Hiring in This Economy? Vincent Hills Quarry Will Hire 120 Workers.
If approved, the proposed Vincent Hills Quarry will hire more than 120 workers.
With an annual payroll of approximately $7.4 million when the quarry is fully operational, Vincent Hills will quickly begin hiring heavy equipment operators, mechanics, plant production workers, plant maintenance, and administrative personnel, as well as roughly 10 employees in plant management.
And the jobs are well-paying ones, with an hourly rate of $15/hour for administrative personnel up to $28/hour for certain mechanics. When benefits and employment taxes are factored in, those numbers increase to $22/hour and $35.33/hour, respectively.
Benefits include short term disability, long term disability, life insurance, medical and a 401k. See the Vincent Hills Pay Scale (PDF file).
White Rock Quarries will bring in only three or four senior managers from outside the community, who are already familiar with the company’s philosophy and procedures. The rest will be hired locally. Moreover, White Rock Quarries is currently working with the State of Alabama to develop an onsite training program for workers who have little or no experience in the mining industry.
