GooseBusters is looking for a handler. [Alumni job] GooseBusters started ten years ago in Dedham with one border collie who needed work so the owners hired themselves out to visit various properties twice a day. Jessie would chase geese off of land and out of ponds.

Now there are four dogs and seventeen properties are serviced. A loop is made every morning to visit each property. The handler lets the dogs out of the car and directs them to the geese. Some properties require a minimal amount of walking; others can be covered from right beside the car. Properties with nothing but a grassy field are easy; the dogs run at the geese and return to the car in less than a minute. Properties with ponds and rivers require more effort. The handler must direct the dogs and get them to swim. The geese never go away forever but the service definitely reduces the numbers of geese and minimizes the mess they make.

 

In addition to working the geese the dogs need to have fun too. They spend a lot of time in the car! So the handler will need to exercise the dogs as well by throwing a ball/frisbee in our yard or at a park. (It's better not to do it on one of the goose properties so the dogs aren't diverted from the goose work.). We ask that you do this twice while doing the morning loop.

 

In peak season (April through October) the entire loop is about 90 miles and takes about five hours. In the winter the loop is shorter and only takes two to three hours. Pay is based on the number of properties and the amount of time required to work each one. In peak season the pay is about $90 per loop. In October we stop working some of the properties and pay decreases to about $55 per loop. We also do a shortened loop in the afternoons/evenings so that we can revisit some of the properties. Pay varies with which properties we do on a given day. We do report to the IRS.

 

We provide a car. On the rare occasions that we ask you to use your own car we will pay for gas and tolls.

 

We have a few expectations that we want to be clear about:

  • We need to be visible on the properties. That means walking the dogs around the property even if you see no geese. Look for goose droppings and let us know if you see any.
  • Be prepared to receive a call sending you back to a property or asking you to skip ahead to a specific property. We frequently get calls from clients telling us that the geese are there.
  • Expect to meet people who object to what you're doing. We need to respond calmly when we are approached. We have purchased pinnies for everyone to wear in the hope that we'll receive less flack.
  • The goal of each visit is to be there when the geese are there, not simply to check off another property. So try to time your visits with the presence of the geese as best you can. 

 

Timing is somewhat flexible. Our earliest starting time is about 6:30 am, but that can be modified as needed. In the winter the start time is later. Afternoons vary as well; we need to visit the properties when we expect to find the geese. Generally that means being gone sometime between 3:00 and 6:00. 

 

 

Please email or call us if you are interested in joining GooseBusters.

Bay State Generator is looking to hire a student(s) helper, part-time (or full-time Co-op) on Saturdays, school vacations, etc. He or she would be on the road with the owner or a Technician, or working at our Middleboro facility. Most tasks would be assisting with Scheduled Preventive Maintenance, or assisting with new installations, performing repairs, or other tasks such as performing inventory and routine maintenance of our equipment. Most of our service calls are local, i.e. South Shore, Cape Cod, etc.

My preference for applicants would be for a student from Tech school programs such as ElectricalAutomotive Technology, or HVAC. The Generators themselves are mostly natural gas or propane-powered engines, which drive an Electrical Generator. We also provide service on the Automatic Transfer Switches (an electrical component), and electronic Controls for the Generator. Someone with a background in machinery, mechanical or electrical would be a great start.

Here is the link to our website:

http://baystategenerator.com/

As an added benefit, in the longer term, any applicant who achieves part-time employment here at Bay State Generator, would certainly be considered for full-time status upon graduation!
