Immediate opening for contract work as a scenic carpenter or scenic painter. If you like a fast paced creative environment with large, complex builds, you sweat the details and respect having a clean, safe build environment, then this is a position for you. We have a number of really cool projects through October and we're looking for motivated, talented individuals who work well in a team environment for large build projects. Our shop is in the Northwest suburbs, conveniently just off 294 at the Willow Road exit. We have a full carpentry department and scene shop including a CNC, direct to board printing, and a full metal shop.
We have positions for carpenters with experience in cabinet or furniture building as well as traditional scenic and touring work. Scenic painters must have experience with simulated finishes on wood and metal building facades. Shop hours are flexible.

The ideal candidates will have 3-5 years experience, good references, and a portfolio of projects. Pay is commensurate upon experience, but we are a very competitive employer. We offer strong health, dental and vision plans and over 20 days of PTO and holiday. Work hard, play hard. Duration of contracts is negotiable, but we are generally seeking 4-8 week terms. For short term contracts, 1099 will be considered and there are opportunities for temp to perm for the right candidates.
