    We are seeking candidates to help provide world-class products to a diverse customer base.

    Located on Rt. 202 in Branchburg, NJ, Zeus offers careers…not just jobs. Relationships are important to us. Working conditions are second to none in our brand new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. All work areas are heated and air-conditioned, and the work environment is very clean and organized.

    Zeus is unusual in today’s manufacturing world. We are still family-owned and have no interest in outsourcing work. We believe in the New Jersey workforce and are committed to manufacturing right here in Somerset County.
    Machine Operator assignments are Temp-to-Hire positions. You will be evaluated for a full-time placement in about 3 months. No long-term temp assignments here…or empty promises of full-time employment. Zeus’ goal is to hire candidates who satisfy our expectations in 3-4 months.

    Zeus is a great place to work, but it isn’t for everyone. Expectations are high. Hours are long and overtime is almost always abundant. Normal work hours are 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m., (Night Shift) Monday evening through Saturday morning. Saturday overtime is common and Sunday overtime is unlikely but possible. That adds up to excellent earning potential, but make sure you’re ready for 60-70 hour workweeks and working at night. Overtime is mandatory in order for us to meet our customer’s needs.

    Pay Rate for agency employees is $17.20/hr. It’s even better for folks offered full-time positions. Assuming satisfactory performance, Zeus’ pay rate climbs to more than $21.00/hr. after about a year of service.
    Zeus employees enjoy a fantastic benefits package that includes one of the best medical plans in the area, a 50% 401(k) match, dental, vision, paid vacation…on-site medical office and gym. The company caters a monthly lunch for all employees. Uniforms are supplied at no charge.

    Successful candidates will have a desire and ability to make nearly perfect products for our customers; to continuously improve; possess the ability to work independently; and the desire to learn a variety of skills. The ability to communicate clearly is imperative; as is the ability to understand precise measuring specifications and rigorous record-keeping requirements.

    Previous manufacturing experience is very helpful, especially with plastics extrusion. Experience with precision measuring tools is a plus. Familiarity with quality control systems and ISO certifications a plus. Lifting 50# and the ability to be on your feet for long periods of time is essential.

    We look forward to hearing from you.
