You can be part of our essential production team.

Cooper Bearings Incorporated is a leading Re-Manufacturer of Bearings and Journal Boxes for the Rail Industry.
At Cooper Bearings, production assistants fill a vital role while learning a variety of skills applicable to many manufacturing processes. The Production Assistant breaks down locomotive wheels into component parts and loads the parts into an automated parts washer. Each component must be inspected and prepared for refurbishing using hand tools, power tools and measurement devices. Production assistants may load and unload trucks, record inspection and maintenance information as directed and assist with keeping the shop safe at all times.
Although we use forklifts and lifting aids, production assistants must be able to lift 100 lbs and endure uncomfortable conditions at times. You will be trained to operate a forklift and may have to work outside the building in adverse weather conditions. While performing the duties of this job, employees are occasionally exposed to work near moving mechanical parts, fumes or airborne particles and loud noise.
The ability to speak, read and write English is required to understand instructions and communicate with co-workers. We will train motivated employees who are reliable, and punctual.
