We are looking for a candidate with direct Pressman/ Press-woman experience. Firstly, they must have operated a Lithographic press in their previous experience. It is important to note that the Press that the employee will be expected to operate is a 6 colour, 56 inch press.
Secondly, the shift is a bi-weekly continental rotating shift. Meaning, the shift runs for 12 hours. The shifts start at 7AM until 7PM. Then, every second week the shift rotated to 7PM until 7AM.
Third, work flow varies based on the schedule you are placed on. For example, the employee works for 3 days, and then has 2 consecutive days off. Alternatively, it may be 2 days on, 3 days off.
Lastly, it is important to note that continental shifts are a norm in the printing/ manufacturing industry. Printing presses never stop production, therefore continental shifts ensure smooth workflow. Also, employees get consecutive days off to ensure proper rest. This deters burning out an employee.
