Fine Print & Fun Stuff !
Our machine shop is located in a facility with bright, natural light. No dark dingy shop atmosphere here! This is not a production environment (that’s located next door), so the successful candidate will be working on a variety of prototypes, while interacting with the designers. The ability to build relationships is key, as this role will interact with not only the shop employees but also the office staff (engineers, designers, etc). This role will be expected to work overtime during the busy season and sometimes that comes a bit last minute.
Packers Plus is a great place to work! You’ll find a relaxed, family atmosphere, with terrific people to work with every day. We offer competitive wages, an excellent benefits program including RRSP matching and a great working environment.
Build your future with Packers Plus … driving cutting edge technology and industry leading innovation.
