Faced with starting over in a different industry, Finley was unsure of the steps he needed to take to pursue a new career path. For Finley, his first steps started at Orion.

BENSON
Benson found the chance he needed at Orion.
Benson’s children are growing up without seeing their parents. He and his wife have not seen their children for three years. This is a sacrifice Benson is making because he recognizes the value of what he is doing. “I’m working to give my family a better life,” Benson explained.

Benson needed an opportunity to be able to prove what he is capable of. He found it in Orion’s paid Manufacturing Training Program.

Orion’s training programs offer on-the-job training in several production areas, giving the program participants the opportunity to learn skills that cover a wide range of manufacturing jobs. Program participants work one-on-one with a trained mentor in each area, improving their soft skills while also learning valuable technical skills.

“All I ask for is the chance to prove what I can do, and Orion has given me that chance,” Benson stated.
