THIS POSITION WORKS 4 ON 4 OFF DAY SHIFT 6 AM-6:30PM

Are you looking for a new opportunity to start fresh? Do you like lots of time off? This type of schedule means only working around 180 days per year as opposed to a traditional Monday through Friday job where you work around 260 days each year. Throw in our 3 weeks of PTO your first year, and track record of not forcing overtime (but it's there if you want it) and you will have plenty of time to enjoy your life outside of work. Grain Millers, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and merchandiser of whole grain ingredients utilized in food products served around the world. We have supplied food ingredients and co-manufactured with many of the world's largest food companies for over 35 years. As one of the world's largest conventional and organic oat millers, our legacy is built on being more than just an ingredient supplier. We are a proactive partner, working with others to do what is right.

This position is responsible for packaging our oat fiber in 50-pound bags and supersacks ranging from 1500-2000 pounds. 50-pound bags are packaged using an automated system that fills the bag to the correct weight, seals it, and prints product information on the side while being conveyed through a check-weigher and metal detector on the way to a robot that will stack the product onto pallets. Once pallets are full, they will be stretch wrapped by an automated wrapper, and sent down the line for you to remove and place in the warehouse with a forklift. At times, you will also fill 1500-2000-pound supersacks using an automated fill valve and scale system. After filling the supersack and removing it from the tote station with a forklift, you will use our warehouse information system to enter the product into inventory and print labels to be applied for tracking purposes. When the supersack has been labelled, tied shut, and stretch wrapped, you will then take it to our warehouse for temporary storage.

During downtime, you will be organizing supplies, checking magnets for foreign material, performing quality checks, and keeping your work area clean. You must have the ability to communicate and work as a team member and follow all safety policies and good manufacturing practices.

The Fiber packaging operator plays a critical role in making sure our customers get the correct industrial sized ingredients every time. You will be one of the last to make sure our product arrives to our customers living up to our quality standards.
