Early birds applying for jobs with Boeing are expected to begin lining up Friday after midnight. Another round of applications are being accepted at Boeing’s North Charleston plant and as many as 3,000 people can submit them for a position at the 787 Dreamliner Assemblers/Fabricators starting at 12:01 am.
ReadySC, the state-run program that trains potential Boeing employees, will stop accepting applications after it has received its quota. And from that stack, Boeing only wants 1,000 qualified job seekers from which to hire going forward.
This is the third application drive that Boeing has conducted through ReadySC. At the end of 2009, about 10,000 people applied, and Boeing accepted another 1,000 applications in June.
The first South Carolina-made 787 is scheduled for delivery next year. Three planes will be assembled each month at the North Charleston facility by the end of 2013.
