Production Assistant Manager

Location: Fairfield, OH
Date Posted: 05-05-2017

This is an opportunity to grow management related skills you’ll have for the rest of your life. You’ll help our print shop departments optimize production by circling the floor with purpose throughout the day, checking in multiple times daily with press, finishing, needles, and heat transfer teams to ensure no one is stuck. Support multiple teams by gathering materials, answering questions, and guiding the entire chain to maintain high production performance.

You are a doer, a quick thinker, and improviser. You get satisfaction from working with your hands and seeing things being made from start to finish.  You tackle problems with enthusiasm – finding the quickest way to the answer, and love working on your feet. Our perfect candidate is a motivator and team leader that can push us to make even more amazing products.

We tackle every project with unbridled enthusiasm, promising that in the end we always make the Best Shirts & Swag Ever.
