Description

THESE ARE OPENINGS FOR 1ST SHIFT WEEKEND POSITIONS.

We are seeking one or more skilled machinists for our Knoxville, TN manufacturing facility - THIS IS NOT AN ENTRY LEVEL POSITION.

As a growing firearms component company, the candidate will be tasked with setting up and troubleshooting production issues on CNC machining operations (turning and milling), and assisting production operators ensure they're making quality products in high volume.

This is a full-time position in an air-conditioned plant with paid overtime, paid vacation, discretionary bonus, holiday pay and stipend for medical benefits.

THE WEEKEND DAY SHIFT WORKS 36 HOURS PER WEEK AND IS PAID FOR 40 HOURS. OVERTIME IS AVAILABLE ON OFF SHIFTS IF DESIRED.

Pay will be commensurate to experience, and should include:

1) An ability to read and interpret manufacturing drawing blueprints with a high degree of accuracy. You will receive training on additional inspection metrology equipment (CMM, optical comparator, Zeiss, Zoller, etc.)

2) Use of measuring devices such as micrometers and calipers with precision, and extensive knowledge of steel machining feeds, speeds, and tool selection for optimally processing parts.

3) Ability, with training, to independently perform machine setups including tool changes, offsets, speed/feed optimization, installation of work holding fixturing, and all the other skills a good machinist should possess.

Additional skills being sought include working knowledge of quality systems, self-motivation and a drive to gain experience and expand knowledge, individual and group problem solving skills, and good written and verbal communication is a must.

As a firearm component manufacturer employee you will be subject to pre-employment background check and random drug screening; failure of either will disqualify the candidate prior to or at any point during employment.

We offer a 90-day review and annual reviews for merit raises and bonuses for overall production facility profitability.
