Job Description: AMAZON Snow Team Leader

Reports To: AMAZON Supervisor/Snow and Ice Operations Manager
LOCATION: Gloucester 


The Snow Team Leader will be responsible for the timely and appropriate completion of snow and ice removal on the Amazon site. The Snow Team Leader will report to the Amazon Supervisor or Snow and Ice Operations Manager directly, and all other managers indirectly. When instructed, the Snow Team Lead will call in their team for work, as well as schedule them and ensure that they start on time. They will then work with them in the capacity that best suites their skills (ex: Plow Operator, Sidewalk Crew Leader, Salt Truck Driver), and monitor the progress of their team at the same time.

The Snow Team Lead must have a good sense on snow operations and how to properly clear sidewalks, parking lots, and how to use de-icing agents. The Snow Team Leader will be responsible for looking after the Amazon property during and after a snow event to ensure deadlines and quality control is achieved and will report any shortfalls or potential issues to the Snow Supervisor, Snow and Ice Operations Manager or to Dispatch as directed. Training and equipment will be supplied, but a clear direction and ability to over-come a variety of potential issues is a must. Plan for the unexpected!

The Amazon Distribution is a complex and detailed site with over a million square feet of property and thousands of parking spaces which includes walkways, gardens and loading docks. This site is also continued construction, and constantly changes as various areas open or close for construction. This site operates at 24 hours a day and 7 days a week with limited opportunities for full clearing due to constant staff on site and a total of 2000 employees. Onsite relocations will occur during snow events with trucking and snow blowing operations as we receive snow falls. Clintar will be operating this site with two 12-hour shifts of operators and shoveller, as well as one responsible employee onsite always for 24 hours a day.

This site will be equipped at all times with 4 loaders/tractors, a snow dome and a construction trailer for crew members. There is to be no snow build up with Clintar’s 24-hour on-site clearing. Training for pre-imposed brine on the amazon site will be provided.
