The company I work for is looking for experienced CNC machinists (starting off around $22 per hour) and machine operators (staring off at $12 per hour), just outside Chicago in Indiana. To be a machine operator you don't need experience, but you must be decent with math and be reliable (far more important than knowing trig, that's something we can teach you). If you are interested, please PM me your resume
