GROB Apprenticeship Program

Looking to start your career right out of high school? Maybe you have been out of school for a while and are looking for a challenging new career. Either way this may be the opportunity for you! Earn while you learn in the GROB Apprenticeship Program. Our program features on-the-job training, a hands-on learning environment, and a company-paid college degree. This combination of training and education helps our apprentices become valuable members of our highly-skilled workforce.
The program is designed to prepare students for technician-level jobs within our company. This could include working in the world of robotics, CNC machines, computer aided drafting and design, assembly and test equipment, and total flexible manufacturing network.

We hope that you will consider joining our team as an apprentice and build your future with us!

Apprenticeship Tour

GROB would like to invite anyone interested in becoming an apprentice to one of our Apprenticeship Tours. You will learn more about our company and the apprenticeship program through a detailed presentation and tour of our 400,000 square foot facility. We encourage you to bring a parent, guardian, or friend with you to this event!


Registration is required for each tour. Please visit our registration site to claim your free tickets.


Please note that we are only allowing 30 people to attend each tour this year because of COVID-19. In order to allow as many potential apprenticeship candidates as possible to attend our tours, we ask that those interested only bring one guest with them. The registration site will allow attendees to select one or two free tickets.
