Employee Schedule

Printer Assembly employees must report for their shift about an hour before the previous shift is over, to discuss with the previous employees any machine issues that need to be addressed, as well as any other shipment related tasks that need to be completed/addressed during the shift. Crossover is necessary to ensure good communication and smooth operation.

Workers will be divided into shifts of 9-5, 4-12, or possibly 3-11. These times also optimize the ability of monitoring assembled printers and change printer configurations when necessary. After the printers are set up and any start up issues are dealt with (which could take 1-2 hours to address depending the amount of issues and the number of printers), the employee should then be free to address other assigned tasks to help with any ongoing printer issues, other production line tasks, shipping or other logistical tasks.

Benefits: Flexible working hours

Reference ID: 3-D Printers

Job Types: Part-time, Temporary, Contract

Salary: $20.00 /hour
