Machine Shop Supervisor – 1st shift- Greater Waterbury

Make that move to 1st shift! This is also a chance for a Team Lead to move up to Supervisor. This highly profitable aerospace component manufacturer’s customers include a long list of Fortune 50 aerospace corporations and they have orders locked in for at least a decade. There are clearly long term opportunities for growth–the highly aggressive parent corporation has a goal of making one acquisition a year, and they have kept on this track for at least 10 years. They are in the midst of building a new facility for this division, which they hope to complete by next year. Their facility is conveniently located close to I-84. This position is open due to the supervisor transferring into another role. Reporting to a Manufacturing Manager, you’ll be supervising and training 33 non-union machinists, ensuring adherence to AS 9100 quality specifications, and helping to implement lean manufacturing techniques. Operations include extensive grinding, as well as some 4 axis turning and milling. Machines are programmed in MasterCam and “G” code. You will also be responsible for the heat treat and assembly areas. Hours run from 6 AM to 3:30 PM, so you’ll be able to dodge some traffic. Salary target is $70,000 to $80,000. Benefits include major medical, dental insurance, life insurance, 11 paid holidays, paid week off between Xmas and New Year, and more. Relocation expenses are not available. Requires permanent U.S. residency, five or more years of machine shop experience with a manufacturer and several years of supervisory or team lead experience. A four-year degree is nice, but hands-on machine shop experience is more important. Any aerospace industry or background is strongly preferred. A criminal background check and drug screen is part of the hiring process.
