The family-owned company is looking to hire experienced machine operators and technicians. About 25 to 30 "highly-skilled" operators are needed at Weaver's Anson plant, and 65 to 70 operators are needs at its Van Buren facility.

“Weaver is undergoing a large-scale capital expansion project in Central Indiana to add capacity for our long-term retail partners, and we need experienced operators to support that initiative,” Jason Kashman, Weaver's CEO, stated in a release to WRTV.

Base pay for each position sits around $22 to $29 an hour, with a $2 an hour premium for night shift operators. Perks include a $5,000 signing bonus, a dollar for dollar 401K match up to 10% of salary, healthcare benefits, tuition reimbursement, and promotion opportunities.
