AAR Corp. Brings 100 Jobs To Goldsboro

A defense contractor is drawing attention to the fact that good jobs are available to workers who spend a few months earning the specific technical skills and certifications some employers need.

AAR Corp. CEO David Storch is in Goldsboro on Thursday to talk about how the parts and service supplier for military and commercial aircraft has worked with North Carolina community colleges to train workers.

A spokeswoman says the company is hiring 100 people in Goldsboro to add to its workforce of 350. The Goldsboro site designs and manufactures containers and shelters used for military and humanitarian operations.

The Illinois company was in the news earlier this year after buying the aviation affiliate of the security company formerly known as Blackwater and then shutting down its North Carolina operation.

    Theres good and bad to everything. Good: Goldsboro can put people to work at a decent wage. Bad: that these people are not experienced to work in that type of environment. And I will be the first to let you in on a little secret......as long as you can pass a CRC test, they will hire you. No experience needed. And this "training"...does no good if they will not do the job. Hey nc yankee, it would be nice if they would hire vets, but they would rather have unskilled and lazy kids who have never worked a day in their life, much less a manufacturing facility. If they would hire people willing to work and have experience, the plant would not have to be working 7 days a week.
