Job Description:

Description:Extrusion Operator:These are the higher level machine operator roles. Candidates need to have 2+ years of experience operating machines to be placed in these positions. Candidates will be responsible for loading various size spools of bare wire onto the extruder. They will then have to load the bare wire into the hopper where it is then heated and pushed through the machines to the correct shape and size of the product. The product is then insulated and put through a cooler until the product is the correct temperature. Once the wire is cooled down and dried it will go through a spark tester to which inspects the product to make sure there isn't any holes or noncoverage in on the wire. Candidates will be required to do minor maintenance and troubleshooting on this machine. They will be responsible for ensuring that the machine is operating correctly and observing the wire from start to finish. They will also be responsible for quality inspection and making sure that the wire is the correct dimensions based on the job order. Distribution:In this department candidates will primarily responsible for operating machinery to pick, pack, and stage orders for shipment. Candidates will need to be able to use an RF scanner which will tell them the order and what products need to be picked. In the distribution center, there are rows of racks of product. These rows are labeled by letters and have product numbers. Candidates will be responsible for receiving the order on the RF scanner and operate the machinery to go to the specific location to pick the orders. For an example the candidate may receive an order on the RF scanner which says 150 of Product xyz located at C12345. The candidate will need to operate the machinery to go to ROW C. Once they are at row C they will go the location 12345 and pick 150 of product xyz. Quality is very important and candidates need to use basic math skills to count the proper amount of product to ensure that each order is correct when it is delivered to the customer. Candidates will also be responsible for putting the picked product on a pallet and operating machinery to move finished pallets to the staging area which is essentially the docks for outbound trailers to pick up the orders. More experienced Forklift operators may be assigned to pick product up from the production area and place in the distribution center. They would be responsible for either putting those pallets at the top of the racks or lowering them to the bottom depending on when that product is scheduled to ship out. Packaging Operators:This is the department that most of our candidates will start. This is an entry level positions. In this department candidates will take larger spools of wire and make them into smaller spools that are wrapped and packaged into individual boxes. Candidates will start by loading the packaging machine with the large spool of wire. Once the product is loaded the candidates will load the machine with wire and ensure that the machine is operating correctly. This machine will take the wire and cut the wire at the length specified by the job order and begin to make smaller spools of product. Candidates will need to visually inspect the product and make sure each spool is the correct size. Once the product is made into smaller spools it is then wrapped with a plastic covering to protect to spool. When the product is finished being wrapped candidates will take the small spools and individually package into cardboard boxes and seal the boxes. When the boxes are sealed they will place them onto a pallet until the pallet is full. Once the pallet is full the forklift operators will come and take the pallets to the distribution center. There are several different machines within the production department. Most of our candidates will start in the packaging section. These machines essentially take the larger spools of wire and make them into smaller spools that are wrapped and packaged into individual boxes. The packaging section is the section that entry level candidates will be placed. Some of the tasks in this section can be repetitive so candidates need to be okay with doing repetitive tasks for their entire shift. For both the entry level and higher level operating positions, candidates need to be able to have composure. These machines are older and sometimes do not operate at 100% which can be challenging for some operators. The supervisors are looking for people to maintain composure and find solutions to problems if this situation presents itself.NEED 3RD SHIFT OPERATORS AT THIS TIME **** 6pm - 6am on a rotating schedule (48 hours one week and 36 hours the next week)Skills:machine operation, production, manufacturing operations, material handling, quality inspection, packaging machine, troubleshootingTop Skills Details:machine operation, production, manufacturing operations, material handlingAdditional Skills & Qualifications:MUST HAVES:1.
