Blythewood’s Trane plant to hire 700

BLYTHEWOOD – The South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW) will be hiring ‘on the spot’ for 70 positions during a job fair it is sponsoring for Trane at Doko Manor, from 1 – 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept 12.

Wendy Hamilton, Midlands Business Consultant for SCDEW, said the hiring will be the first phase of 700 new hires over the next six months for Trane’s newly expanded plant in Blythewood.

“They will be hiring for multiple positions, primarily maintenance techs,” Hamilton said.

While Hamilton said she did not have the final range of pay for the positions, she said the jobs are all well-paying jobs.

“All of Trane’s corporate Human Resources Department staff will be on site to interview, make offers and hire right then and there,” Hamilton said. “It’s very important for applicants to bring an updated resume with them.”

The first phase of 70 hires will be followed by hiring the bulk of the 700 open positions. Then another 70 will be hired in the final phase. All three phases are expected to be completed within six months Hamilton said.

“The company recently completed a 1,000,000 square foot expansion, the largest expansion it has ever made,” Hamilton said. “It’s a great opportunity for both Fairfield and Blythewood.”
