I haven’t done many reviews on Ariens homeowner products this year but they are doing well in the commercial mower sector. So well infact that they are hiring 250 workers this Saturday to meet the increased demand. Here is an article from The Post-Crescent (Appleton, Wis.)
BRILLION — Ariens Company, a maker of outdoor snow removal and lawnmaintenance equipment, will hold a job fair Saturday to fill 250 full-time positions.
The company is looking to hire team leaders, machinists, finishing operators, press brake operators, finishing operators and assemblers.
The job growth is directly related to a 53 percent sales increase since 2010, Ginger King,vice president of human resources, said in a statement.
“We have experienced significant growth in our dealer channel driven in part by sales of commercial products which have increased 90 percent in the last four years,” King said. “Much of this growth has been driven by new product introductions and new technologies.”
Due to increased demand for all products, the company will now produce outdoor power equipment all year long.
“This represents a shift to using fewer seasonal employees than we have in the past,” King said. “We will still use seasonal employees to fill peak demand but to a much lesser extent.”
The job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the company’s corporate headquarters, 655 W. Ryan St., Brillion. Ariens will take applications at the event, but job seekers also can fill out an application in advance at www.ariensco.com/hiringfair.
