Since our framing department is a busy one, it's a team environment.

Full-time trainees can expect $13-$14 per hour. If you have experience or skills to make you especially valuable then compensation is negotiable.

Your schedule will be very stable and consistent week-to-week and will only need occasional temporary changes to cover for co-workers' special time off. A typical day is 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.—you don't have to work late into the night nor work on Christmas or Thanksgiving! We will expect you to work most Saturdays. (We are closed on Sundays.)
