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!
GROB apprentices will specialize in either a mechanical or electrical pathway depending on their interest, ability, and company need:
Apprentices will be taught various machining and assembly skills. They will learn how to read blueprints and run machines such as the manual mill and lathe, CNC mill and lathe, and drill press.
Apprentices will learn how to read electrical diagrams, wire control cabinets, troubleshoot various machine faults, and program PLC's.
Not sure which path is for you?
All of our first-year apprentices go through a basic training period where they get to experience both mechanical and electrical work in order to
determine their ideal placement. Basic training includes classroom instruction and hands-on projects that teach new apprentices basic mechanical and electrical skills.
