UNION — Seven people were interviewed during Thursday’s recruitment event at the SCWorks Union office and all seven were offered jobs by the company recruiting security guards for a Jonesville area employer.
The interviews were conducted by C.J. Mojica, Operations Manager and SLED Level III Instructor, and Administrative Assistant Beth Allman of U.S. Security Associates, Inc. They were conducting the interviews to fill security positions and by the end of the event they’d offered jobs to the seven people they interviewed. The job offers are contingent upon the applicants passing an exam, a SLED background check, and a drug test.
Mojica said he was pleased with the results of the recruitment event, but said there are still more positions to be filled including the position of account supervisor which was not offered to any of Thursday’s applicants.
“We are still looking for more individuals, especially account supervisor,” Mojica said. “Nobody that came in today met the criteria for that position.”
The employer U.S. Security Associates was recruiting for Thursday is the Dollar General Distribution Center.
Mojica said anyone interested in applying for a security position with U.S. Security Associates can do so by filling out an application at the company office at 319 Garlington Road, Suite D-7, Greenville. The company takes applications Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Thursday’s recruitment event was the second of two held this week at the SCWorks Union office at 103 E. Main St., Union.
On Tuesday, Advanced Professional Services (APS) of Gaffney interviewed a total of 58 people for jobs as machine operators, for warehouse positions, in shipping and receiving, and receptionist. The clients represented by APS during Thursday’s event are all in Gaffney. APS will review the applications and resumes to determine which ones should be sent on to which client based on the applicants’ work experience. The clients will then tell APS who they want to interview and the company will contact the applicants and schedule the interviews.
