Employment > A Career in the Gear Industry
Working in today’s precision manufacturing environment is much different than most people might suspect. Modern facilities, like Arrow Gear, are not the dirty, smoky, poorly lit factories that were common in the past.
Arrow Gear is widely recognized as one of the cleanest and most modern facilities in the world. And producing gears at Arrow is a demanding, highly skilled process that involves computer technology throughout every step of manufacturing.
Another point to consider about working in the gear manufacturing environment is its widespread impact on all of our lives. Gears are critical to an almost countless number of systems that we depend on everyday. From transportation, agriculture, printing and medical applications, gears are at the heart of their operation by providing power transmission.
So working in the gear industry is a significant contribution that impacts the lives of many people – an industry you can be proud to work in.
Even when starting as a trainee, working at Arrow Gear offers a career path that is limited only by the goals and capabilities of the individual. The company provides not only extensive training for employees, but also offers an attractive tuition reimbursement program for job-related studies. Notably, many of those
serving in key management and operational roles at Arrow began as trainees.
