While the holidays are clearly on the horizon, there’s still plenty of time to make a little money before the largest gift-giving season of the year is in full swing. If you are looking for an ideal opportunity, here are five open jobs that are worth exploring.

1. General Labor

If you are relatively new to the manufacturing industry, a position as a general laborer may be ideal. During the execution of your duties, you’ll gain valuable experience working with a variety of hand and power tools while also performing general work throughout the facility, including material handling.

Candidates need at least one year of experience either as a general laborer or in a manufacturing environment, the ability to lift up to 50 lbs. regularly, and to stand, bend, and reach with ease.

2. Accounting Clerk

If you have experience in accounts payable and receivable, you might be the perfect candidate for an accounting clerk position. This exciting opportunity is in a fast-paced, high-volume environment, ensuring you won’t have the chance to get bored during the course of the day.

The preferred candidate will have around five years of experience as well as an associate’s degree in business or accounting, though this is not a strict requirement. Being bilingual (English and Spanish) is also a plus, though not a necessity.

3. Shipping/Receiving

If you are looking for a team-oriented environment and have prior experience in shipping and operating a forklift, this shipping/receiving role may be the right position for you. You’ll work as part of a team to meet daily objectives, ensuring shipping operations run smoothly during the course of your shift.

Job seekers with a steady work history are preferred. If you have pallet jack experience, that is a plus, but not a necessity.

4. Staffing Coordinator

The selected candidate will handle tasks including, but not limited to, sourcing candidates, interviewing job seekers, screening applicants, networking, and managing current employees.

Exceptional customer service skills are a must, as well as a high school diploma (college degree preferred). Additionally, knowledge of Microsoft Office is also essential, in addition to strong leadership and organizational skills.

5. Machine Operator

If you have previous production or industrial experience, the ability to read a tape measure, and math skills including the ability to work with fractions and decimals, you may be interested in this machine operator opening.
