BMW Manufacturing to Employ 700 Workers for Two New Shifts

BMW Manufacturing Co has decided to employ a new bunch of workforce as it is planning to open two new working shifts of 10 hours each at the company’s Greer manufacturing plant in South California. MAU Inc. and Tier One Solutions, who deal with the company’s recruitment policy, are getting huge response for the posts. The company has announced $13 per hour wage for the day shift and $14 per hour for the night shift. Looking to get one of the 700 jobs, many people engaged at the S.C. Employment Security Commission office on Wednesday.

Goupstate reported:

Almost 400 people had passed through the doors by lunchtime to submit applications and meet with interviewers, and hundreds more were expected as the job fair was scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Opening of two new shifts could be a positive side and an indication of stronger economy. It seems BMW Manufacturing is gradually strengthening its presence in the market. Due to economic recession, the company cut the per week production hour to 80 hours, which was 110 hours weekly last year. Now, the company looks to increase it to 100 hours with stronger demand in the market.
