Schedule, Travel, Compensation, and Location

This job is for first shift (M-F 9-5). Since the facility is currently single shift, this could potentially be moved to accommodate easier commutes (for example, 7-3), but this will depend on the needs and preferences of the team.

Target compensation for this role is $22 – 25/hr. plus a sign-on bonus of up to $2,500 for exceptionally qualified candidates. Additional benefits include health coverage, 401k plan, and stock options.
