Production Manager/Supervisor

Media Technologies, Inc. - Shelby, MI


Located in OCEANA COUNTY, Media Technologies is a premier, K-12, wood-manufacturing facility with three plants located in the industrial park in Shelby, Michigan. We are growing! We are a second generation, family-owned company that makes/assembles contemporary furniture for media gathering places like libraries and schools. Check out our website to ‘see’ what we do!

Media Technologies is currently seeking a Production Supervisor. Wage is dependent upon experience level. We have one opening for either a 1st or 3rd shift. 3rd Shift runs Sunday night through Thursday night (8 hours) and currently (4-5) hours on Friday nights. We don’t typically work Sundays.

We'd like:

  • An associate's degree or higher in an engineering related field;
  • 4 years minimum of supervisory experience;
  • Demonstrated ability to lead a crew of up to 50 employees;
  • A positive attitude and approach to internal and external customers.

If you don't have these experiences or attributes, send us a cover letter with your resume and tell us why we should consider you anyway!

What it’s like to work here:

  • We offer production work environments that are safe, warm, dry, bright, clean and … that smell good! (Yes, our employees really say that!)
  • Our supervisors treat people with dignity and respect.
  • If you work with us, we will gladly work with you on flexible scheduling for appointments and the needs of you and your family.
  • We notice if your coworkers are unexpectedly absent for their shift. We reward you for having to pick up their slack and for not following their lead.
  • Drug & alcohol free.

What we are not:

We are not automotive.So none of the 7-day a week, high paced production line pressure. No doing the same thing minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day, week after week … well, you get the idea. Here, you get to think – think about what you need to do for the order, get guidance as needed, and then do your job at a reasonable, steady pace.

We are not food producers.No wet, cold refrigerators or freezers to work in for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. No need for rubber boots and layered gloves to keep your feet and hands warm and dry. No worries about the frantic pace others might expect from you. We do have production goals, of course, but because our products are custom made to order, QUALITY is more highly valued than QUANTITY. We will teach you what you will need to be successfully employed with us, long-term.

Unlike other employers, Media Technologies offers opportunities for contributors seeking to have a nice job in a nice environment with a nice boss, along with opportunities for people who wish to grow their skill-set, their career and their earning potential.

Easily apply!
