Field Tech – Bilingual (Spanish) - Box On Demand – East Coast
Box on Demand by WestRock, is a rapidly growing organization focused on delivering cost effective packaging solutions for our North American customers. Box on Demand is a new approach to sourcing corrugated packaging for companies that ship a complex and shifting mix of products. With our box system you can quickly and cost-effectively produce custom corrugated packaging in your own facility. Because you order raw, un-converted corrugated, your packaging costs are consistent across any configuration, quantity, or design. Our equipment can provide cost savings, packaging flexibility and square footage recovery for our customers and as a result the demand for our equipment continues to expand.

The Field Tech duties will also include a rotation of phone support during on-call weekends. Travel will vary considerably from week to week but can be expected to be 50-75% of the time.
