Daktronics Painter- Night Shift in Brookings, South Dakota


Every day, in nearly 100 countries around the world, millions of people depend on Daktronics scoring and display systems for information and entertainment. Our displays provide vital travel information in airports and train stations and along highways. They advertise the price of gas, store specials, and more as you make your daily commute. They also enhance spectators’ experiences at sporting events of all kinds, from Little League to the major leagues.

Daktronics operates paint booths located in the proximity to their product responsibility. The booths are equipped with Kremlin paint and primer systems. The Kremlin guns are classified as air mix. The painters share a kitchen area where all of the paint and paint components are stored. Painters are required to perform preparation, mixing, and application duties. Employees working in the paint booths are required to pass a pulmonary function test to establish a baseline to monitor employee health. This test also qualifies employees to wear respirators. Daktronics uses fresh air positive pressure hoods for respiratory protection while painting. A clothing change area has been provided to eliminate the need to take contaminated clothing home. Paint uniforms are cleaned by a local service. Paint shoes are covered by the safety shoe reimbursement policy.

The shift for this position is 4:30pm-3:00am, Monday-Thursday.
