After a tough period of contraction, Sub-Zero is warming up to new hires.
After laying off 300 people earlier in the year, business at this high-end appliance maker is heating up again. Sub-Zero recently announced that it is adding a second production shift, calling back 165 workers and hiring 60 additional employees. "We're cautiously optimistic that the industry and the economy will continue to recover, and so we've positioned ourselves to rebound quickly as we come out of this recessionary period," said Chuck Verri, vice president for human resources.
Many of the new hires will be entry level with starting salaries in the "low 40s," Verri said although there are also openings for mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and supervisors which require additional experience. Those who have previously worked in manufacturing of a durable good product will translate well, Verri suggested.
