Future openings will be for the position of machine operator on our third shift, which runs from 11:00 PM to 7:30 AM, Monday through Friday.

Starting pay for this position is $20/hour.

Our machine operators cut, trim, assemble and pack various plastic products such as swimming pool steps, docks, panels, and kayaks.  

Just some of the benefits of working at Confer Plastics:

That $20 to start is a good wage for an entry-level position at the factory. It could work out to be $49,000+ in your first year.
