Job Description:

Description: may go to FTE

We are looking for 2nd and 3rd shift, non-Monday-Friday (will most likely be Sun-Thurs, Tues-Sat or an alternate work with that might have some 12 hour schedules

As a Packaging Machine Operator, you can expect to be working on your feet the entirety of your shift near heavy machinery in a loud manufacturing environment. Client manufacturing facilities are also large. While we want everyone to feel comfortable, our ability to control the temperature is limited. Indoor warehouse working conditions are impacted by seasons and the weather.

After training (a process that can last 8 to 16 weeks), here is a list of the more frequent tasks you could expect to perform:
* You will set-up and operate multiple packaging machines to ensure accurate code dates, weights, and that products are put into appropriate bags.
* You will check that products are dated and sealed with a minimum amount of wasted product and supplies.
* You will also be responsible for ensuring that products to be packed remain clean.
* You will maintain a clean and safe work area. Safety is everyone's job.
* You will perform basic preventative maintenance on packaging machines such as cleaning or switching out knives and blades, pull-belts, tape machines, or rollers, depending on the need.
* You will wear protective gear when using chemicals to clean and sanitize lines during changeovers from one product to another.
* You will inspect conveyors and scales prior to line start-ups & changeovers.
* You will troubleshoot commonplace problems and make operational adjustments.

Packaging Machine Operators work with every product that Client produces, which means you should consider the potential allergens we work with: dairy, wheat, soy, garlic, salt, and particular oils (e.g. sunflower). You should also keep in mind that we make popular spicy snacks, like Flamin' Hot Cheetos .

Please take a moment to ensure that you meet the minimum requirements for this position:
* You are at least 18 years of age or older
* You will be required to work on weekends, holidays as well as off shift
* You are mechanically inclined and can think that way. Having at least 1 year of machine operator experience in a high-speed manufacturing environment would be a good indicator to our hiring team.
* It's a physical job: you are able to lift 50 lbs from floor to waist (e.g. a twin-size mattress) with or without a reasonable accommodation
* You have basic math skills and can read and write in English
* You are able to stand and walk for extended periods of time with or without a reasonable accommodation
* You are able to climb, bend, reach, stoop, kneel, and stretch for extended periods with or without a reasonable accommodation
* You are able to repeatedly lift, carry, push, pull, and handle products with or without a reasonable accommodation
* You are willing and able to work at heights using ladders or lifts to access areas of the plant
