When J. Walter Becker started IDEAL INDUSTRIES in 1916, he based it on an unshakeable belief in ideal relationships with his employees, his community, and of course his customers. More than one hundred years later, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. is a global enterprise with companies serving technicians and trade professionals across a wide range of industries, from electrical to construction to aerospace to automotive. Our products have been instrumental in helping mankind reach from the South Pole to the Moon, and are paving new paths for the future.

As an Operator I, you are the foundation of the business- you are directly involved in building the product that drives the revenue of the business. Our goal is to make this role more challenging and fun for you by differentiating the work a bit: giving you the opportunity to cross-train in several areas across assembling and packing different products. This variety makes the day go faster and gets you more deeply involved in the operation. In this Operator I position, you’ll need to have a good attention to detail, a strong quality focus, take pride in your work and maintain a clean work area and find value in being a part of a team that becomes a bit like extended family.

Along with our competitive pay, we provide employees a comprehensive benefits package including: medical, dental and vision insurance, paid holidays, vacation and personal time, a 401(k) with a 4% contribution match, a 4% cash balance pension plan and tuition reimbursement. One of the best parts about our comprehensive package is that our benefits take effect on your first day of hire so there is no waiting period!
