Why I work at DCI?

I love working with metal because of it can be bent, molded and shaped.  Being here, I can be creative and the variety is amazing.  It has been a wonderful experience. I was told the company is well managed and friendly and I have found all of that to be true.

DCI, Inc. is committed to developing and maintaining a high-performance workforce and encourages its employees to continue to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their jobs and provide optimum service to customers.
Here at DCI, Inc. we provide an array of positions both in the shop and in the office.  If working out in the shop is for you, you can enjoy one of the many crafts person positions, advance to a Lead position, or be responsible for an entire department as a Shop Supervisor.  Office positions also come with a variety of different levels that can expand with your skills and knowledge.  Moving from the Shop to the Office is also an option and has proven to be beneficial.
DCI provides financial assistance for continuing education to support the development of skills and knowledge that is a mutual benefit to both the employee and the company.


Typical? What’s that? While there are some tasks that are repetitive, each position at DCI, Inc. offers some sort of variety since we work with a wide variety of companies servicing different needs and are engineered to order. No two days are alike (and we like it that way).

We offer three different shifts for fabricators in the shop. We are a union shop and do have set shifts, but we try and work with your needs and schedule:

  • M-Th 5:30am-4:00pm (with OT worked on Fridays 6:30am-11:30am)
  • M-F 7:30am-4:00pm (with OT starting at 6:30am M-F)
  • M-Th 4:00pm-2:30am (with OT staying until 3:30am M-Th).
  • In the office, hours are flexible and depend on the needs of the department. Core hours may be established.

Night shift receives an extra $1.00/hour shift differential pay. After all, if you are working until 2:30 am there has to be a benefits!

Obviously, in the manufacturing world, all fabricator positions in the shop work onsite, after all, these positions require working with your hands, and that’s exactly the kind of work these employees are looking for!

While there is some flexibility for most office positions, most positions do require working onsite the majority of the time. We find that the collaboration with others in the office brings out the best in all of us. Inquire for more details during the interview process if you are interested in this.

Absolutely, every day provides a day to learn on the job. From formal classes on print-reading and other topics to mentorship from co-workers, we believe everyone has more to learn. We have even developed special training for employees who have specific training needs.

For most shop fabrication positions, no. We want to make the application process as simple as possible. But if you have a resume – feel free to send it to us at jobs@dciinc.com.

Sure, as long as you can complete the essential functions of the job you are applying for, we are willing to consider your application. If you need an accommodation for the application process, let us know.

To work as a fabricator in the shop you must be 18 – this is for safety reasons.
For office positions, each position outlines required skills and abilities and hiring is based on those items.
