2) Excellent Pay - Starting Pay is $19.73 per hour for Level 1. After Level 2 certification, pay jumps to $20.94, AND there are annual level increases based on market and budget factors. Levels 3 and 4 pay even more and perform project work and leadership tasks. Plus $1.75 shift differential.

4) Work with phenomenal people - our employees are truly fantastic. We come from all walks of life and work hard to make sure we all give, learn, and grow.

Before you apply, here's what we want you to know:

1) You are not assigned to one piece of equipment - we have several different work areas, and you'll be learning a few at a time. The more you learn, the more likely you will achieve the next levels. If you love learning new things and believe that moving from one position to the next helps pass the day and keeps things interesting, this is the job for you. If you want to excel at one thing, this is not the right job for you.

2) This is hard work. You'll need more than physical strength - you'll need fortitude and gumption to handle equipment ownership, solve problems, and maneuver through the unexpected. If you like to be challenged both mentally and physically, then this is the job for you. If you are not looking for a dedicated and fast-paced working environment, this job may not be for you.

3) We wholly depend on each other. Our generous PTO Benefit (PTO available after first pay check) allow employees to take off work up to three weeks per year when scheduled off. Rare and periodic call-ins are the exception as we rely on the unique expertise YOU bring to work each day. If you tend to have multiple urgent and emergent needs that fall outside the scope of what is legal, job-protected leave of course, then this may not be the right job for you.

We make a difference by enriching the lives of consumers through products we are proud of.

You can THRIVE in a culture built on forward thinking in a supportive, family atmosphere with outstanding benefits (just ask any of our current employees!)

  • Your coworkers can count on you being at work every day. They know something extraordinary must have happened for you to not be at work.
  • You handle daily pressure with fortitude and grace.
