Come grow with us in a Embroidery Team Member role!
As an Embroidery Team Member, you’re a big part of what makes us stand out! We are known for the quality of our embroidery and need team members with those same high standards to join our embroidery team. You will operate the embroidery machines to embroider logos, names and other designs on a variety of items including hats, clothing, bags and blankets.
After ensuring you have reviewed and understand the project specifications provided to you by our Promotional Consultants, you select the thread, fabric, hoop and design required to complete the job. You set up the machines and monitor the embroidery process to ensure a top-quality end product. You provide advice regarding the design, placement, and thread selection. You understand the digitizing process and can complete small edits and build new layouts as required.
You maintain a strong understanding of the embroidery machines and perform general maintenance to keep them working their best. You monitor supply inventory, reporting any issues and reordering stock as required and keep track of work orders and update records.
You have previous experience with industrial embroidery machines. We run Barudan machines in excellent running condition (8 head, 6 head and single head). Experience with embroidery digitizing software is an asset.
· You have exceptionally high standards and take a sense of ownership and pride in everything you create.
· You have a great attention to detail and have developed skills and techniques for ensuring the accuracy of your work.
· You are very organized and able to plan, prioritize and execute multiple projects simultaneously with limited supervision.
· You are a self starter, learn quickly and are curious by nature, not afraid to use your resources to seek out answers and learn new things.
· You adapt to change, deliver under pressure, have a strong sense of urgency, and focus on timelines.
· You have excellent troubleshooting and analytical skills.
· This position requires a person to frequently be on their feet, standing for long periods of time. Ergonomic supports like anti-fatigue floor mats, are available. (We just want to ensure you know that these are not sewing machines you sit behind, they are industrial embroidery machines.)
· This position requires the ability to lift and move up to 20 pounds regularly throughout the shift.
· This position requires the ability to see differences between colours, shades and brightness.
This is a full time (40 hours/week) position. Most staff work Monday to Friday 8:30 – 5:00. Flexible schedule options are available, including specific hours of work or number of hours per week. Seasonal changes to specific hours of work and number of hours per week may be available with consideration to operational needs.
To apply, please email your resume and cover letter to Kailey Odermatt, Owner/Sales Manager at kailey@sjaPROMO.ca. We will begin reviewing resumes as they come in and will continue until we find the right candidate(s). We appreciate all interest in this position but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
