The employment opportunities are available through the staffing company Pride Staff, and include full-time packers and assemblers with three- to five-month assignments for a Santa Clarita company that sets up iPads in classrooms at Los Angeles County schools, event officials said.
“A lot of our job seekers like to stay local, so people get excited when they see there’s available positions in our community,” said Marilyn Jimenez, a spokeswoman for the WorkSource Center. “It is a local employer in Valencia. They are temporary positions, but there is a possibility they could become long term. It’s for anybody that needs extra income.”
The positions offer a pay rate of $8.50 per hour, and minimum qualifications include recent packing experience, the ability to read packages and labels, excellent hand-eye coordination and a high attention to detail with math and counting skills, according to a news release by the city of Santa Clarita.
Interested applicants should bring a copy of their resume, as well as a state-issued ID, such as driver’s license, and social security card or passport. Onsite interviews, background checks and drug screenings may be conducted for applicants who best meet the qualifications of the employer, event officials said.
The free recruitment event is scheduled for Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Suite 250 at College of the Canyons’ University Center, located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road in Valencia.
All job seekers are encouraged by event officials to arrive at or before 10 a.m., allowing time to park and sign-in. Free parking will be provided during the hours of the event in Lot 14 only.
