Versatrim, a manufacturer of various moldings for residential installation, is sponsoring a job fair this Saturday, Mar. 25 at their facility on Eastern Minerals Road, located just off U.S. 1, south of Henderson.
The job fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to company representatives who spoke Monday with John C. Rose on TownTalk. There will be onsite tours of the warehouse and customer service areas, which help prospective employees get a feel for the manufacturing facility, Brandi Parker, interim human resources manager, said.
Although Versatrim participates in job fairs sponsored by other groups like NC Works, Saturday’s onsite job fair is a first, Parker said.
People will “have the opportunity to come and see what Versatrim does,” agreed Viridiana Badillo, human resources assistant.
All of the 12 positions that Versatrim currently has available are full-time positions – that means a 40-hour workweek, with full benefits package including medical, dental and vision insurance.
In addition, Versatrim offers a couple of extras at no cost to the employee – $25,000 life insurance, and teledoc services that include urgent care and mental health services.
Parker said she’s proud of the employee development opportunities that the company has initiated; various community entities have come out to share information about such things as nutrition, fitness, homebuying and the importance of getting a GED.
“This is more than just where you come to work,” Parker said. Versatrim’s “team” concept provides support for employees, she said. They fully expect to double or triple their growth over the next few years, Parker added.
There are two shifts at the facility, and when all the lines are running, they can produce 10,000 pieces of molding each day.
Most of the open positions are for first-shift, which uses more workers than the second shift. The shifts can range from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., or 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., depending on the station.
Versatrim prioritizes quality, Badillo said. There are quality control checks throughout the manufacturing process, even “once it’s wrapped and ready to go out the door,” she said. “We take quality very serious here.”
