Foreman - Wood

Be a part of the legacy.

Ninety percent of Osmose field management started as a Foreman.

Osmose wood Foremen perform inspection, maintenance, and restoration of utility infrastructure. Our Foremen are given the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by hiring, training, and supervising a field crew of 1 - 5 people. They are also responsible for planning, organizing, and coordinating daily field operations. 

Wood Foremen and crews work together to successfully meet our customers' expectations, and are critical in keeping electric utility infrastructure safe and reliable nationwide.

Foreman Trainee Program

As a Foreman Trainee, you will complete both classroom and on-the-job field instruction conducted by a highly experienced and skilled Osmose Foreman. Participants will spend four weeks of their training at Osmose's state-of-the-art training school located at the corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, GA.

Training school attendance affords all trainees the opportunity to learn the culture, history, and mission of Osmose. Trainees are able to meet executives and managers face-to-face, many of whom started in the training classroom themselves.

Post Training

Once promoted from the training program, Foremen enjoy full-time, year-round stable work at the rate of $23/hour. Foremen may be required to travel extensively, but will also have the opportunity to work overtime and receive overtime pay, as well as earn weekly production bonuses.

Osmose Foremen are paid hourly based on a tiered scale that includes a base rate, conditional pay, and production bonuses*. This compensation plan provides opportunity for advancement within the Foreman role and rewards Foremen for consistent high performance. Several Foremen earn over $100,000 annually.

Compensation level is determined quarterly based on the previous six months performance. Corresponding level wages are paid in the form of conditional pay on productive hours only.
