Advance Packaging Corporation is seeking a Color Press Operator
Are you a person who loves to work with their hands? Do you have a desire to work with highly motivated individuals in a fast-paced environment? Advance Packaging is seeking a person who wishes to learn how to operate a press in the box making industry to produce a quality product with accuracy.
Color Press Operators work in a team to set up the machine for each order, each order is custom designed and many orders are run each shift. These machines are not just monitored, they require changes for each order for print color, printing dies, cutting specifications and computer settings with many more integrated tools and settings. These machines, in many cases, are state of the art.
The product must be quality inspected as produced throughout the order run to ensure quality. Not just one person is responsible for these quality checks. It takes members of the team to perform them and make appropriate adjustments. Once the perfect boxes are manufactured they are also unitized and bundled to the customers specifications for delivery to their plant floor.
These jobs are detailed in their tasks. People successful in these jobs are professionals in their field. They are also the employees who are considered for promoting to higher level positions when opportunities arise. Consider using our tuition refund benefit, continue a post high school unfinished education and those job opportunities can lead to Management.
Starting hourly rates for inexperienced trainees begin at $16.00. Rates are negotiable depending on related manufacturing experience. Top rates for the most complex machines and the most skilled operators can exceed $29.00. 2nd shift offers a $0.50 shift rate and 3rd shift offers $0.30 rate above hourly rate. Over time is not a guarantee but when advance notice is given, over time is required to be worked.
WE TRAIN on these jobs. Consider training times that can last up to 18 months. Learning and becoming proficient in this industry is a time commitment. So if you want to be the boss next week, this is not the job for you. But if you are willing to learn and willing to dedicate the time to learn, you will be provided an opportunity to become a professional in your field. And you can take this experience and training and put it to work in this industry any place in the world. And you can do it without a college degree!
