Now hiring! Conti posts first Sumter jobs

Posted on July 30, 2012

Less than one month after construction officially began, Continental Tire the Americas LLC (CTA) announced that the first job postings for its new plant in Sumter, S.C., are posted online at www.readySC.org/conti. Applications are now being accepted.

Altogether, CTA says it will invest more than $500 million in the Sumter plant and create about 1,600 new jobs. Continental has partnered with readySC and Central Carolina Technical College to assist with recruiting and training interested candidates.

Current job postings can be viewed at www.readySC.org/conti. Industrial Maintenance Technician and salaried positions, such as engineering and management positions, are currently posted on the site. CTA will begin to accept online applications for Production Operator positions in late summer.

"We are making good progress on the construction of our plant," said Craig Baartman, Sumter Plant project manager. "Now it's time to fill some of the first of these well-paying jobs with excellent benefits."
