Imagine being part of a team that works like a family.

Doing a job that no one else in the world can—and doing it as safely as humanly possible. Supporting a cause everyone in the room appreciates, believes in, and gives their all to achieve. And knowing your part matters just as much as everyone else’s, regardless of titles or departments. That’s the unique culture we’ve built at Pantex.

What It’s Like to Work Here

At Pantex, our setting is best described as:


You may need a security clearance to come and go. And you’ll leave your smart phone, social media, and Bluetooth devices in the car because this is a place where critical information, materials, and projects are housed, and security vigilance is vital to their safekeeping.

This video titled “Day in the Life of a Production Technician” was shared with AmTech Career Academy and Canyon ISD Career Academy as the first in a series. The purpose is to educate students about what a Pantex Production Technician does and enable them to visualize what it’s like to work at Pantex.

Much more than a place to work, this is a congenial professional setting where people work hard, interact with ease, and often become lifelong friends.
