Full job description

We’re on a roll so we’re hiring! And if you give a “sheet” about paper then that’s a great start (especially if you can tolerate other tearable puns). Case Paper is a family-owned business that is renowned for its commitment to extreme customer satisfaction. We’re literally and figuratively “On the Case” and have been for 80 years.

Case Paper is one of the largest privately held distributors and converters of paper and board for the printing and packaging industries. We’re not talking copier paper (think more about paper used for signage, brochures, or direct mail) and not the cardboard that carries your Amazon Prime orders (our products are used more for packaging cosmetics, food, technology, and cannabis to name a few). Our core values are (1) Flexible, (2) Own It, (3) Reputation Matters, (4) Teamwork and (5) Humor. It’s easy to remember if you’re a Star Wars fan…may the “F.O.R.T.H.” be with you! We are always looking for those who can aspire to improve our workplace atmosphere through honest hard work, a great attitude, a little bit of curiosity, and a big sense of humor.

We’re hiring for a position on our team here: We are looking for a 2nd Shift Supervisor who is willing to work for the 3rd shift.! What exactly does this position entail, you ask? Well, in addition to the standard battery of magic tricks and superhuman feats that we expect of all our teammates, this position will have primary responsibility for oversight of manufacturing activities on their shift. If that’s not specific enough for you, try this list on for size:

  • Participate in safety initiatives and commit to a safe working environment, free of accidents and harm to employees and the community.
  • Learn the proper operation of all equipment to be able to support, troubleshoot, and provide backup coverage.
  • Ensure ERP system data integrity, particularly as it pertains to production, inventory management, and job costing.
  • Optimize production throughput in balance with safety, quality, customer service, and inventory objectives Operate heavy machinery to move materials to and between workstations and load/unload trucks as required.
  • Provide training, coaching, and discipline as appropriate to drive accountability.
  • Learn S&R processes to provide back up support “Other duties as assigned” (of course we would add this one!)

Do you have what it takes? We're looking for a teammate with at least three (3)years of relevant work experience in manufacturing operations, management, and/or master planning / scheduling. It would be super if you had experience in a manufacturing environment and even better if you have worked in packaging, printing, or web handling. We’d love it if you've had previous management or leadership positions. This work experience will give you a baseline understanding of the manufacturing process that you can apply to You don’t need a degree for this position, but we’d love someone who has their GSD (“get stuff done”) or has paid tuition to the school of hard knocks. It’s helpful, though, if you have had formal training in management, maintenance, or engineering. Your educational background may provide you the tools and ideas you need in order to know what makes an excellent supervisor, but if you don’t have the formal book learning, we still value the hard work, experience, curiosity, and best practices you can bring from other positions and workplaces. The knowledge you have learned from training and workplace experiences is important, but as Shinichi Suzuki once said, “Knowledge is not a skill. Knowledge plus ten thousand times is a skill.” Here are some things we hope you have done ten thousand times or so in order to become skilled.

  • Working knowledge of and experience with ERP/MRP systems (we use EFI Radius, so if you know that, it will help!)
  • Basic Excel skills (formula calculations, sorting, filtering, data validation)
  • Mathematical skills in converting unit of measure, calculating proportions, and using simple single variable functions.
  • Competence at learning and operating web handling equipment (laminator, sheeter, winder)
  • Able to operate heavy machinery and powered industrial trucks (forklift, clamp truck)
  • Good verbal and written communication skills with employees and administrative staff
  • Ability to multitask and prioritize workload, shifting between a variety of tasks as necessary.

Lastly, some other job details: You’ll need to be eligible to work in the U.S. without visa sponsorship to throw your hat into the ring for this one. This job is located in 900 West 45th Street Chicago, IL 60609. The core working hours for this position are Monday-Friday (3rd Shift) but there may be times that other hours are required for training or coverage issues, including early mornings, late evenings, or overnight. While we’re open to all candidates, we’re not offering any relocation benefits at this time (sad face). This is our first whack at this job description, so the final job might be subject to some changes. Hey, that’s what being flexible is all about!
