The Fabricator Looks at Rewarding Manufacturing Jobs with FactoryFix
Manufacturing have positions to fill, but talented job seekers want rewarding careers

Patrick O’Rahilly, CEO and Founder of FactoryFix, an online platform which matches vetted manufacturing workers with companies seeking specific skill sets, recently spoke with Tim Heston, Senior Editor of The Fabricator magazine. Rahilly discussed rewarding careers in manufacturing. Read the full article here.

O’Rahilly shared, “The industry as a whole doesn’t do a great job showing people how they can progress over an entire career and how exactly manufacturing can be a lucrative career path.”

The career path focus moves the conversation away from what a company needs now toward what talented people want out of a career. Sure, a fab shop might be desperate for a second- or third-shift operators, positions that have always been tough to fill, and end up throwing more money at the problem — a noticeable trend now as starting wages, even for the untrained and unskilled, are rising.

The Fabricator is North America’s leading magazine for the metal forming and fabricating industry.


FACTORY MADE is a 6-episode comedy series set in an operational factory, where the FactoryFix platform plays a character alongside some of today’s top American comedian talent. This first-of-a-kind programming will attract the entire manufacturing industry, as it takes place in a food production facility and takes on the issues facing small to mid-sized US manufacturing companies. The industry has never had content like this, custom-built for them, created as a stand-alone comedy show with high production value and recognizable actors.

FACTORY MADE will live exclusively on the FactoryFix YouTube channel, with the first episode dropping in mid-June. Subscribe to see it first:

About FactoryFix:

FactoryFix is a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers. The platform’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.

Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.

The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:

  • At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
  • 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
  • 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board

FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process.
