Midwest Bus Corporation, the nation’s largest transit bus re-manufacturer, needs to hire approximately 50 new employees over the next several months to meet the needs of its growing business. Midwest will be hiring for a range of positions, from entry-level training positions to highly skilled mechanics, welders, electricians, and body repair technicians.
Midwest attracted the attention of Governor Rick Snyder, who then visited the facility in 2013, when the company created 100 new jobs after winning the largest contract in Midwest’s then 33-year history. A recent, even larger contract will require a bigger workforce.
A job fair will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 18 at Midwest’s main headquarters, 1940 W. Stewart St. in Owosso. Midwest Bus offers competitive benefits and hourly compensation. Benefits include 401k, comprehensive health insurance, holidays, vacation time, and personal leave days.
Attendees at the job fair will have an opportunity to tour the plant, fill out applications, and may have the opportunity to interview at the event. Anyone who is unable to attend the event can contact Renee Cooper at (989) 729-5865.
Founded in 1980, Midwest Bus sells and leases used buses; provides replacement parts and field repair services for air conditioning, wheelchair lifts, and structural repair; and serves as one of the largest transit industry support providers in the nation. Midwest Bus is privileged to partner with public and private transit providers, including Flint’s MTA, Lansing’s CATA, Owosso’s Indian Trails, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and many universities.
