Do you consider yourself someone who learns really fast, catches mistakes, a great multi-tasker, and kind of a perfectionist?

Do you actually like to work and show up with a smile?

Are you someone who obtains satisfaction from a job well done?

We are a small company and we are looking to hire the right person who has the same kind of enthusiasm and pride about providing a quality product to our customers as we do.

This position is Monday – Friday. 7:00am-3:30pm. We are currently working summer hours!! We work 9 hour M-T (6:30AM-4:00PM) and ½ day on Fridays. Every Friday you work 7:00-11:00 and then you are off to enjoy your weekend!

The pay is commensurate to the level of experience you bring forth, but we do offer merit increases so the amount you earn is in your hands. You just may have to prove yourself a little first.

The position is challenging, you will be stressed out on occasion, you have deadlines that you have to meet. On the flip side, it’s also fun, rewarding and you also have support from your coworkers. Are you up for it? Do you want to know more?

If so, please submit your resume and a short cover letter.
