Job Description

Packaging - As the tubes are filled, with caulking, silicone, epoxy etc, the machine places them in "blister packs" with a card sealed to the back.  They come off the machines and the packers puts them into boxes and place them on skids to be shipped out. Employees will need good hand dexterity and hand - eye coordination.  Will need to be able to grab the packs and box them quickly so they do not get backed up on the machine.  Employees must inspect the product as they are packing.  Full boxes can weigh up to 20-30lbs.  Employees must be able to stand for entire shift.   Workers are moved throughout the lines doing various tasks that need to be done for that line  This can entail anything from taking garbage, sweeping area, picking garbage from the parking lot, stacking product, carrying card pads, and stacking empty drums. The employees only move the drums when they are using the filling machine. When they stack drums, one drum is placed on the dock, then one upon that drum.  They are to roll the empty drums to the dock, and then they lift the second drum about three foot to place them upon the previous drum.  They are to bend at the knees but the drum can be any direction when being lifted.  If the drum is full, then they have a drum dolly that they use as these drums are 500lbs. May be asked to help load and unload containers. Loading and unloading will consist of lifting up to 50 lbs, bending, carrying objects and stacking boxes into the container.
