Sonderen Packaging, is a family company in its third generation of ownership. Since 1963 Sonderen Packaging has been a staple of the Spokane, WA community. We conduct business with the highest level of integrity while striving to maintain a family focused culture. Our culture is built on respectful relationships with our customers and employees. We have a positive working environment with a talented team, and excellent benefits. Are you a reliable & detail-oriented employee, who likes a good challenge and has a positive attitude?

We are looking for a Unicorn, aka an experienced die-cutting operator. Our die-cutting operators work on state-of-the-art Bobst die-cutting equipment. They are a tight-knit team of skilled folks who assist one another when troubleshooting and making adjustments to solve problems during runs. They also provide each other make-ready support and ongoing training. There are several opportunities to increase your hourly wage through learning and cross-training in this department. An experienced die-cutting operator must be self-motivated to meet and exceed production goals by operating the cutting press and equipment within the established efficiencies and run speeds, while still producing a quality product. All Sonderen employees are expected to maintain a safe environment by keeping the work area neat, clean, and free of hazards. Our cutting department maintains a high level of quality comprised of a team of individuals dedicated to their craft, with combined experience of 80+ years!

This custom manufacturing business is also very humbling in that you learn something new every single day. Manufacturing is exciting and can be unpredictable. We all give our best effort but at the end of the day we must give ourselves some grace. Although we strive for perfection, we are not perfect people and do not make a perfect product. However, we take pride in seeing our quality product on the store shelf. We are lifelong learners. We persevere through tough times and are always looking for ways to improve. We love to laugh and joke and celebrate success. If these are characteristics you embody, it is likely you would be a great fit for our team. Are you up for the challenge??
