Work schedule Mon-Thur (Swing) with potential overtime.
A Load Stripper has several duties and responsibilities that ensure that the finishing department can run at full efficiency. The main responsibility is to strip the paper waste from the cartons. While this sounds simple, it is actually quite challenging. Handling 30lb air hammer for the majority of the day is no small feat. This is a physical job where you are constantly on the move. Advice for a new Load Stripper would be that it is critical to pay attention to details to ensure that the product is not damaged during the stripping process. The stripper also needs to be constantly communicating and paying attention to the schedule so they ensure they are stripping the most critical jobs. The Load stripper generally works alone and is self-motivated to consistently work hard. This person takes pride in knowing that they are helping the finishing department to increase efficiencies so our customers can receive their product quickly.
