ASHLAND — In tough economic times, news about job openings is hard to come by.
Anyone with a bit of experience and a dedicated work ethic, however, would be well advised to contact either Cintas Corp. at East Park Industrial Park or AT&T in Ashland for a shot at one of dozens of positions the companies hope to fill as soon as possible.
Cintas general Manager Leigh Wallen said the local branch of the company needs 16 to 18 people for jobs that promise excellent benefits in exchange for hard work and dedication.
“We would like people with a good work history, who are dedicated and loyal to the job and not afraid to work long hours,” Wallen said Monday, adding applicants should be physically able to stand for long periods.
Most of the positions open at Cintas are for special operations operators, or jobs customizing garments and uniforms. She explained the local operation does not make uniforms, but modifies garments to meet the needs of individuals at specific companies.
“If someone needs 32-inch pants we would cut them and hem them. Or, they might need the company name applied,” she explained.
According to a statement released by Cintas, the job includes garment inspection, application of emblems, ID tapes, bar codes and/or other trims, cutting, serging and hemming garments.
Cintas pays employees competitive wages weekly, she said, and provides excellent benefits including competitive pay, 401(k)/profit sharing/ESOP, medical, dental and vision insurance, paid vacation and holidays.
“I would absolutely recommend this company,” Wallen said, adding the organization has an excellent sense of culture and the local branch benefits from being part of an organization with more than 30,000 employees and diversified operations. “We work harder than most, but we benefit more than most.”
Cintas will host an open house at the East Park location from 10 a.m. to noon, 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 25, Wallen said, encouraging anyone interested in attending to R.S.V.P by calling (606) 327-6020.
