Advance Packaging Corporation is seeking a Transfer Cart Operator - 2nd Shift


Like to use logic on the job? Enjoy puzzles? Like to stay busy at all times? Then you need to consider operating a transfer cart. Like a hilo, a transfer cart moves work from one area of the plant to another. But unlike a hilo, it is computerized and drives itself! So why do we need you? Because something always needs changing.

Learn the transfer cart computer program, change the programmed scheduled movement or get on the cart and drive it yourself. You are primary in keeping production running at its most efficient by jumping in when problems occur or orders change. You must keep a constant eye on work moving across hundreds of conveyors and jump to action when trouble occurs by logically moving work for orders into new positions on the conveyor lines.

And when you aren’t monitoring or driving the carts, you need to drive a hilo to move work onto conveyor lines or into storage. You will be in constant motion, but not all of it using your feet!

Starting rate is $15.00 per hour. 2nd shift offers a $0.50 shift premium and 3rd shift provides $0.30 shift premium.


Qualified candidates for all possible machines will possess:

  • High School diploma or GED
  • Demonstrated ability to perform basic math using fractions
  • Have an unrestricted Michigan Drivers License
  • Enjoy working with mechanical equipment
  • Ability to work in a safety sensitive environment and be aware of surroundings
  • Ability to communicate verbally and in writing as necessary to receive instructions
  • Must successfully complete a pre-employment background check and post offer drug and alcohol testing.
