Production Chemist or Chemical Tech. – Greater Waterbury, CT

Prefer a more hands-on position, vs. office work? This tiny, tight-knit, 90+ year old company offers you rock-solid career stability, work-life separation, encouragement to grow, and the opportunity to learn all aspects of the business. They are now debt-free, and are in a growth phase. It doesn’t get any more hands-on than this; the boss, the V.P., and even the president routinely spend time on the floor packaging chemicals. Once home, you are home– no one here sends night work-related emails. You’ll be packaging custom chemical orders, labeling, shipping, researching international shipping regulations, producing safety data sheets and certificates of analysis, managing hazardous waste disposal, quality testing, helping with facility upkeep, and more. Later on, you will be handling technical service duties. Nobody leaves here. The V.P. has been here 20 years, the shipping & receiving fellow has worked here 22 years, another employee 16 years, and the retired employee you are replacing was here 10 years. The president, here over 20 years, an extremely down-to-earth chemical engineer, is an astute businessman with a friendly, forthright, transparent manner. Salary depends on education and experience, and ranges from $45,000 to $65,000. I will show them qualified candidates with requirements to $70,000. Additionally, there is a merit bonus based on “longevity, attitude, dedication, and learning” after the 1st year. Benefits include 55% company paid medical, long term disability, life insurance, AFLAC dental, a 4% company-matched 401 (k) plan, and more. Requires permanent U.S. residency, an interest in working hands-on, a BS or AS in Chemistry, some work experience in either chemical manufacturing or chemical distribution, decent computer skills, a dedication to safety, and the goal of creating a long term career. The company is not interested in candidates who change jobs every year or two.
