What’s this job like?

The right person for this job loves to be part of a busy factory. It's hands-on, it's physical. It’s the complete opposite of sitting behind a desk bored out of your mind. If your favorite class was shop, or your idea of fun is actually building something, this might be a good fit for you.

Operators for Oakley work on material preparation of metal and plastic sheet goods; large format digital and screen printing; material finishing and shaping operations include die cutting; final assembly of printed items into a wide variety of frames and stakes; packaging of finished items to ensure quality, accuracy, and boxing for safe delivery; and a busy shipping and receiving area that ships all completed orders as well as manages and warehouses all in-coming raw materials and supplies. Also: You can't stand a dirty work area.

Above all, you're willing to stand behind your work. To sign your name to it and say, "I'm responsible. I'm proud of this. My work shines."

The position pays between $10 - $15/hour, depending on skill level and responsibility. We also offer insurance and benefits.
