Hello Speedway, Think I got your catalog back in the day. Word of advice to HR. Don't list multiple job duties under one ad. Most important is that you list a starting wage. You don't do that, you aren't worth working for, even with your fancy DMG Mori's. Good luck. Sorry you are in Nebraska.
The one thing companies need to realize is when your soliciting for help, the potential help is shopping.

If you don't list pay scale etc,most of the time it's a waste of time....

$2500 is a pebble in a pond....Some companies give 3 to 4 times that, the first day of work, not 6 months in.... and 3+ weeks PTO day one...


I spent over a decade in manufacturing and misc job shops in that state.

One thing about Nebraska, there are lots of good people, who live there, but the wages and benefits suck, it might be good money for the area, but overall, benefits and wages could be better.
