About the Role:

We are seeking an experienced digital large-format Graphics Production Supervisor/Operator for our Exhibits & Displays group.

If you have a strong background in all aspects of large-format graphics and signage, along with a positive attitude, great organizational skills and strong hands-on skill set, this position could be a perfect career move for you.

Please note: This is not a graphic designer position. Graphic design experience is helpful since those skills are used to preflight, create design templates and manipulate artwork for output.

This is a great opportunity to work on projects ranging from signage, stage properties, displays and trade show exhibits for Fortune 500 clients to educational, STEM and historic builds for schools and museums.

This is an on-site role. You'll work in a friendly, casual environment at our corporate office in Saginaw Township, close to shopping and restaurants. You'll also have access to our free on-site workout facility and enjoy perks such as tickets to local events.

Manage all aspects of the production and workflow of signs and graphics; includes scheduling, coordinating labor and materials, hands-on print production, outsourced graphic production and quality control
Maintain exceptional quality control and discipline to produce superior graphics for our clients
Manage inventory levels and maintain relationships with vendors for substrates, films and supplies

Morley & COVID-19
Our #1 priority is the health and safety of our Morley Family members.

In March 2020, we instituted the Morley COVID-19 Response Team, which continues to meet daily to minimize or eliminate our associates' exposure to COVID-19 and provide assurance that Morley is a safe place to work. This team immediately moved most associates to remote work, created preparedness plans, and continues to update policies based on CDC, OSHA, MIOSHA, and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services guidelines.

Our Facilities team has worked tirelessly to maintain increased disinfection standards, build safety shields for cubicles and ensure workstations are adequately spaced to offer additional protection for our on-site associates.

As a result, we have experienced little to no spread of COVID-19 in our offices (as verified through the Saginaw County Department of Public Health). If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via chat or at
