Employment Opportunities

Now hiring!

Confer Plastics has openings for the position of a 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 $18/hour.

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

To start, employment is through a staffing agency. This is NOT a temporary position -- after a few months, you will become ours.

Just some of the benefits of working at Confer Plastics:

·         It’s family-owned and operated – no corporate bureaucracy!

·         Steady 40-hour work

·         No swing shifts

·         Plenty of overtime – and it’s all VOLUNTARY 

·         Paid vacation that grows with seniority

·         7 paid sick days per year

·         7 paid holidays per year

·         Annual bonuses based on economic conditions – in 2021, everyone got $2,600!

·         Heath insurance – company and employee share premiums; almost all the deductible is covered by the company 

·         Dental insurance

·         $200/year wellness benefit for gym memberships and exercise equipment

·         $200/year smoking cessation benefit

·         $5,000 benefit for employees looking to adopt a child

·         401(k) with an employer contribution

·         A Covid-safe workplace that includes a full-time Covid Administrator  

That $18 to start is a good wage for an entry-level position at the factory. It could work out to be close to $50,000 in your first year.

Just consider the potential financial impact in Year One:

$18/hour for 40 hours, 52 weeks: $37,440

8 hours of voluntary OT for 40 weeks (daily OT or Saturdays): $8,640

Annual bonus: $2,600 (using 2021 as the example)

401k contribution: $520

That’s $49,200. If you grabbed 10 more weeks of overtime, that’s another $2,160.

So, you could be looking at $51,360.

In the first year!

There’s always personal and professional growth; advancement; raises; benefits and more going forward.​​​​
