Why is this a GREAT opportunity?
  • Total compensation of $160-$200K inclusive of 3 incentive programs.
  • Team building type of atmosphere as opposed to dictatorship.  It’s a lot more fun to work in a team environment – and more fun to build teams as opposed to beat people down.
  • As the Plant Manager, you will be responsible for all aspects of this plant.  You will be the highest ranking manager on site.  This will be like “your” operation, and you will have total authority for this 4-shift operation’s P&L.
  • Incredible Career path leading to Multi-Plant Responsibilities if you can handle it!
  • Rock-Solid financials.   This company doesn’t downsize for every small hiccup in the economy.
  • Company is aggressively growing domestically and internationally.
  • Outstanding benefits and incentives. 
  • Strong Relocation assistance package. 
You may be a fit for this position if :
  • You are willing to relocate to a rural town in the Southeast US that’s an hour from a major city.
  • You have a “fire in the belly” and your personality is very energetic.You are brimming with enthusiasm.
  • You have uncompromising integrity.
  • You have a 4-year degree and 10 years of industrial manufacturing experience including managing a 24/7 manufacturing plant.
  • You love to coach, mentor and groom your team to their top potential.
  • When describing your accomplishments, you speak of “we did” or “they did” (not “I did”), build talented teams, and you get satisfaction by the success of others.
  • You are a great listener, seek to understand and don’t jump to conclusions.
  • You always have time for any question from your team, no matter how busy you are.
  • You establish metrics through consensus with your team for all critical areas; then work closely to ensure each member of the team is accountable to achieve or exceed these goals and all obstacles to team success are removed.
  • You refuse to fail, ever.2nd place is something you are not used to or happy about.
  • You understand that continuous improvement is a part of the culture that you foster.
  • You know to PULL as opposed to PUSH. 
  • You feel continuous improvement is the key to business success and feel that a business is either getting better or losing ground to the competition…and that improvement is part of daily life.
