Corvette customers are doing their share to help the economy recover from the effects of the pandemic.
The latest example?
General Motors needs 50 temporary, part-time jobs at its Lockport, New York plant to supply parts for the 2021 Corvette, as well as other vehicles like the Silverado, Yukon, and Escalade.
The jobs – which will pay $16.67 per hour and include health care options and holiday benefits after 90 days – could morph into full-time positions if they become available, according to Tom Reed of GM Communications.
A hair drug test and background checks are required from candidates, who if hired will become part of UAW Local 686. Click here to apply.
No word on exactly what the new employees will be doing at Lockport, but according to GM, the 2.6 million square foot facility currently employs 1,258 hourly and 182 salaried workers.
The facility produces radiators, condensers, heater cores, evaporators, HVAC modules, oil coolers, CRFM Assemblies (Condenser Radiator Fan Module), and CRAs (Condenser Radiator Assembly) for several GM vehicles.
Founded in 1910 as the Harrison Radiator Company for the purpose of designing, manufacturing, and selling automotive radiators and components, the company has since grown into a lean manufacturing site that produces a wide compliment of Powertrain Cooling and HVAC components and systems.
