Despite the fact that BMW is looking to cut about 8,000 jobs worldwide, the Spartanburg facility in South Carolina are looking for new employees. The South Carolina plant currently produces the X5 and Z4, but with production of the X6 beginning a few weeks back, BMW is looking to staff an additional 200 jobs to keep up with the demand.
They are also going to up the night shifts from eight to ten hours. In 2009, BMW will move the Z4 production to Germany but in the same time, the new X3 will start its production cycle at the Spartanburg center.
Those of you looking for jobs in the Spartanburg area can apply through MAU Inc., BMW's U.S. staffing firm, and should expect to bring in $12.50 an hour during the day shift and additional buck if you're willing to toil away in the wee hours of the night.
