    Introduction:

     

    This position is part of a Disaster Recovery team.   We are not first responders, but when natural disasters strike (e.g.., hurricanes, earthquakes, flood waters, tornados, fires, etc.) our team fully engages as part of the recovery process to help restore the communities. Our primary focus is working with homeowners in the restoration of their houses and property.

     

    This position will begin as an “on-call/as-needed” basis, with strong probability of converting to a regular, full-time position with full employee benefits which include (but are not limited to) medical, prescription, dental, vision, FSA, 401k with employer matching, paid holidays, and paid leave.

     

    We are looking for individuals who are willing, able, and readily available to be a part of this team, who can report for work on short notice and remain engaged throughout the recovery efforts for varying periods of time. Occasional travel to disaster sites may be needed.   In such case, the company covers travel expenses, i.e., travel, per diem (food and lodging). Where reimbursements are provided, they will be provided directly to the individual and in a timely fashion.
