This position would be ideal for those who are just out of high school/trade school, those currently in college, someone seeking supplemental or temporary work, and semi-retired individuals.
Starting Pay: $15 hr
This candidate must have/be:
- 18 years of age or older
- Completed high school or equivalency

- An understanding of basic math, such as fractions, decimals, and weights
This individual must be be able to stand or sit for long periods of time, use their hands to feel and touch, handle, push, pull and twist small objects with their fingers or hand tools, and do repetitively with accuracy and attention to detail.
(A great comparison to SOME of this type of work would be to imagine sorting and handling small marbles and dice, placing each one into a clothespin using your fingers and pliers and then checking to see if they are straight, even, and the correct size.)
Visual inspection and a great sense of feel is critical to each product and will be taught to this individual. Good eyesight is beneficial. However, magnifying aids, microscopes, and shadow comparators are used for the smallest of parts.
- Assemble small parts at different stages of production.
- Label and organize parts to keep them separate and identifiable.
- Inspect parts and communicate with supervisors to ensure tolerances over time.
- Use hands, fingers, and small hand tools for extended periods of time tying, twisting, brushing, etc.
- Clean, polish, and package items.
- Work closely with others to accomplish production goals.
- Be willing and able to switch tasks or jobs when asked, or work on multiples tasks through a workday.
We are there to help and teach! We encourage lots of questions, even if you’ve already asked. The techniques we use every day need to be learned and practiced. So we expect no one will do it perfectly. Every other person in the building is willing to help and teach, especially our owners/supervisors who will be doing the same jobs with you!
Other responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:
- Operating small machines
- Using hands and hand tools for long periods of time tying, twisting, brushing, etc.
