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 the total flexible manufacturing network.


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