or from any other kind of picking. But you have to have some basic skills and the right attitude to develop your selves to a higher level in the team.
from 5 o’clock in the morning until about noon. The peas are only picked when they are still juicy. Some days we work in the evening too - normally between 5 and 9 o´clock, depending on the weather and the amount needed to be picked.
The work is done in all kind of weather, so it is important to bring warm clothes and boots and clothing for rainy weather.
The picking is normaly taking place 6 days in a week - with a weekly day off.
We need a staff of reliable pickers in order to fullfill the daily pea delivery. Everybody have to show up for work at the same time - when we are picking - no matter the weather. And everybody must help each other finishing the work at the same time - so nobody will be left behind at the end of the day.
If you repeatedly don´t show up for work or you work irregularly in the picking team we will have to dismiss you.
On special occasions you can have an additional day off. You then have to inform us about it in good time so we can make the planning.
Valid absence caused by illness or the like must be reported before or short after beginning of the work - either by phone call to the responsible field manager or by asking a friend to pass the message.
For old pickers there are some new conditions to be aware of. The main differences compared to previous years are listed in the section Changes 2016 season.
