Pueblo’s newest major employer will host a public job fair next week.
Fresh produce distributor Russ Davis Wholesale expects to start by hiring 50 workers for its planned opening this fall.
Long-term, as orders grow, the company plans to hire 160 or more workers. The jobs include production supervisors, line leads, production fruit and vegetable cutters, order fulfillment leads and truck drivers.
Next week’s hiring event will take place from 1 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Friday (Aug. 17) at Pueblo Community College’s Gorsich Advanced Technology Center at 900 W. Orman Ave. Job seekers are advised to bring their resumes.
PCC and Pueblo Workforce Center are co-organizing the event. “These hiring events are a time-effective way to meet with representatives from the Minnesota-based company and learn about its work and the open positions,” PCC said in a statement.
