Autocam Medical will hold a hiring event this week and will make same-day offers for CNC machinists and secondary operators.
The job fair will take place from 8 a.m.-noon Wednesday and 1-5 p.m. Thursday at Autocam Medical’s global headquarters, 4152 East Paris Ave. SE in Kentwood.
The company is looking to hire 30 full-time CNC machinists and 10 secondary operators. Same-day offers will be made to qualified applicants.
“While there may be other jobs out there, the positions that we are filling are career opportunities,” said Kristy White, human resources director for Autocam Medical. “We are committed to investing in our employees and providing them with learning opportunities that facilitate career growth. The training that we provide coupled with the work environment and benefits that we offer is what really sets us apart from other companies.”
Autocam Medical offers a clean air-conditioned work environment that’s outfitted with innovative equipment and managed according to the principles of good practice, trust, fairness and respect for the individual. New hires will receive premium-free health insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, quarterly incentives, a 401(k) match of $3,000 and tuition reimbursement.
Those applying for the CNC machinist positions are required to have two or more years of CNC experience. They also must be capable of setting up and operating single or multiple spindle machines, as well as monitoring and controlling the quality of machining practices by using process control tools. Proficiency in maintaining production processes and working within the expected quality standards and established efficiencies also are necessary.
Secondary operator candidates must possess superior attention to detail and manual dexterity skills. In addition to taking part in continuous improvement activities such as quality management, concurrent engineering and tool tryouts, they also will be responsible for performing data collection and various communication tasks.
“While both of these positions require special skill sets, aspiring apprentices with a strong work ethic, mechanical aptitude and analytical abilities are also urged to apply,” White said. “Our business has grown exponentially over the past five years, and we anticipate that this trend will only continue as plans for our new facility fall into place. Our expansion is expected to create 250 jobs, so we will be looking to fill many more positions in the coming months.”
Those interested in attending Autocam Medical’s hiring event are encouraged, but not required, to register and reserve an interview time in advance at Autocam’s website. Walk-ins also are welcome. All applicants should bring an updated résumé.
