Facility-Based Employment
Training and employment on-site at our Kent production facility. Employees perform a variety of assembly, collating, fabrication and packaging tasks. Each employee's work assignments are based on their individual skills. Employees have the opportunity to receive training and work on a wide variety of assembly, collating, fabrication and packaging tasks. Wages are earned based on individual productivity levels (piece-rate) per the U.S. Department of Labor standards.

Person-Centered Planning
Planning centered around the individual and their areas of interest. The process includes the individual, family, friends and others interested in the successful employment of the individual (as determined by the individual served). Graphic planning and facilitation may also be included in the planning process.

Job/Skill Training
Training in assembly, collating, fabrication, packaging, light custodial and on-the-job training for community based jobs by SKCAC.

Off-Site Work Crews
Seasonal employment opportunities are available through SKCAC with ARAMARK Services at Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Duties include light custodial work (sweeping corridors) in specified areas during the home games.

Supported Employment
Job placement in the community using a team approach. Your SKCAC employment specialist guides the job seeking process and provides supports as necessary to help you to be successful in your new position. SKCAC placement personnel work with employers to develop jobs with natural work supports.

Work Experience
Time-limited work experience opportunities at SKCAC are available to assist an individual to gain work skills for employment in the community.

Applying for Employment Services and Waiting List
The popularity of SKCAC's employment services can require us to establish a waiting list for some services. If you are interested in applying for services please contact us to setup a meeting with a SKCAC employment services staff member to complete an application for services. SKCAC Industries requires that each individual meet SKCAC's criteria for participation and have a referral resource such as the Division of Developmental Disabilities or the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
