We make engine valves for cars, SUVs & some trucks (light vehicles).
JOBS AT OUR COMPANY
OTHER SKILLS YOU’LL NEED
A High School Diploma or GED is required in order to be employed at USEV. Computer classes and hands on machining/tool type classes with the Vocational Center are always preferred. You will also need critical thinking and mechanical skills basic - you don't need to know how to rebuild an engine!)
Teamwork is also 100% a must at USEV. While you may work alone in some areas of the facility, you are never alone when you are on campus. Teamwork makes the dream work. Our associates are always willing to help out one another to work towards the common goals: make the best product for our customers the right way the first time!
We always look within the company prior to looking externally. We promote from within and go externally for jobs that may require a more special or technical field (i.e., college degree).
We urge you to now; don't wait until you're a Senior in High School to decide what you want to do. It's ok to change your mind multiple times but have an idea about your career path & work towards it. Most students change their minds often about what career they want to be involved in, so plan now.
BEST PART OF WORKING HERE
Each day is almost always different. USEV challenges its associates to always improve each day. Learn learn learn. Be the champion of your area and always look to continually improve!
Our customers are Honda, Toyota, Subaru and Nissan. If you or someone you know drives a Honda or Toyota, chances are the valves in the engine were made right here in Oconee County at US Engine Valve.
We are ALWAYS hiring and looking for the best people to make our products!
We do some co-op type hiring to students learn more about particular fields (i.e., Quality & Engineering).
GOOD TO KNOW
USEV has been in Oconee County for over 30 years. When we first started, we issued associate identifications by way of a numbering system. The first person hired was #1, the second was given #2 & so forth. Currently, we are at employee #2026, meaning over 2000 people have been hired at USEV in the past 30 years. We have been a pillar within the county, and our growth will hit over 50 million valves sold in the next few years.
OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE
USEV is active in our community by giving back financially to institutions within the county, as well as TCTC. We've made numerous donations in the past to local charities, such as United Way & The Collins Children's Home.
