We offer hourly employees an hourly wage in accordance with their level of responsibility. Overtime wages will be paid for any time worked beyond a 40 hour work week and potentially for any time worked beyond a regularly scheduled shift.
Schedule and Rotation
Since the Restoration Fuels operation will operate on a 24-hr/day, 7-day/week schedule, a rotating shift schedule will be developed to ensure proper staffing at all times. This may be an 8-hour rotating work schedule, a 10-hour rotating schedule, or a 12-hour rotating schedule. Overtime payment will be based on this rotating schedule and in accordance with the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) requirements. The QC technician and maintenance technicians will not be required to follow the rotational schedule but may be required to work split shifts and/or odd hours depending upon the operational requirements.
