Production Technician

Omaha, Nebraska
Manufacturing & Operations


Job Description

Eaton’s Omaha Power Center has an immediate opening for a Production Technician on 1st Shift.  This position is based at our Omaha, NE facility.

The production technician  assembles and installs electrical metering, relaying, and transformer components into medium voltage (5-38kv) switchgear assemblies as well as device wiring.


Making what matters work at Eaton takes the passion of every employee around the world. We create an environment where creativity, invention and discovery become reality, each and every day. It’s where bold, bright professionals like you can reach your full potential—and where you can help us reach ours.

  • You will position and install component parts according to material list and blueprints.
  • You will perform all aspects of assembly which  includes a wiring task whereby it is necessary to stand, sit, bend and in general assume a number of different positions throughout the day.
  • You will utilize manual and automatic crimpers and strippers to crimp wire lugs on the end of the wire.
  • You will utilize Point-to-Point wiring diagrams to install all wiring. Routing of wire from one point to the other is a task requiring the ability to plan ahead to avoid rewiring. Wire looms need  to be neat and wiring must be accurate.
  • You must be able to work off ladders and in tight spaces.
  • You must be willing to work overtime as required, including weekends.
