How to get a York, PA Manufacturing Job

York manufacturing jobs pay well, provide job security, and offer opportunity. For example, an aspiring machinist can start training at 18, do a one- or two-year manufacturing apprenticeship, and, in five years, he or she could be making more than $50,000. “In 10 years, that could double to $100,000,” writes Parija Kavilanz in the article “$100K Manufacturing Jobs” on CNN.Money.Com.   So the question is, why are so many York manufacturing jobs left unfilled? The answer: The average high school graduate is not qualified for an entry level position in manufacturing. Some of the skills high school graduates desperately need in order to land an entry level manufacturing job include: Mechanical skills, welding skills, electrical skills, shop skills, computer skills, measuring skills, and strong math and science skills. Often entry level manufacturing jobs require workers be able to operate, fix, and trouble shoot the machines they use. (Unfortunately, because many high schools have eliminated their shop programs, most graduates can’t identify simple tools!) In addition, soft skills such as critical thinking, communication, problem solving and creativity are equally important to employers. Clearly, the solution to this problem is training. There are job openings that can only be filled by trained employees. The good news is York County offers two places high school graduates can acquire the training they need. The York County School of Technology located at 2179 S Queen Street offers excellent adult education programs in forklift training, industrial controls and automation technology, welding technology, computer aided drafting and manufacturing technology, CAD/CAM manufacturing technology, and precision metal machining.

York, PA Staffing Solutions for Manufacturers

For over 250 years York County manufacturers have led Pennsylvania in the production of snacks and foods, labels and packaging products, refrigeration, cooling and heating equipment, electronics and more. It’s no surprise these manufacturers employ nearly 20 percent of the local population. It’s also no surprise they’re searching for qualified staff with specific skills. Projected retirements along with seasonal work, new orders, and custom requests create vacancies to fill and Chartwell Staffing Solutions of York is here to help. Our rigorous testing and screening process enables us to maintain a database of employees with basic skills in applied math, communications, computer literacy and problem solving. Some of our employees have knowledge of quality systems, process improvement principles, statistical measurement, blueprint reading and preventative maintenance. As the new kid on the block (we’ve been in York less than a year) we already have employees working for York manufacturers as general laborers, designers, and quality control checkers. In the last week we placed three employees in direct hire positions. York manufacturers appreciate that our goal is to build a long term relationship with them. We don’t treat our clients generically. Rather, we go out of our way to tailor our services to meet their needs. For example, if they need an onsite coordinator to recruit, interview, and place associates, we provide one at no extra charge. In addition, when manufacturers work with us they never have to deal with no-shows because we always have a qualified back-up employee at the ready. Our goal is to provide all York manufacturers with the machine operators, technicians, skilled tradespeople, production operators, forklift operators, packers,...
