GE Aviation holds Old Fort job fair May 7

GE Aviation

Media notice from GE Aviation:

GE Aviation is sponsoring a career fair in Old Fort next week, in an attempt to hire some of the 325 workers who recently lost their jobs in the Ethan Allen plant closing. Our two GE Asheville facilities are rapidly hiring. This year alone, we’re trying to fill 200+ open jobs! So we’re hoping that some of the Ethan Allen folks might be able to find a new work home here with us.

The fair takes place on Tuesday, May 7, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Old Fort Depot at 25 W Main St. Sample opportunities include Equipment Maintenance Team Leader, Maintenance Technician and CMC Technician; a full list of positions is available at
