OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Many jobs were lost during the pandemic, but right now at businesses across the metro, you can see hiring signs.
The jobs at Lozier pay from $20 an hour to $30 per hour and you are eligible for a $1,000 signing bonus after three months.
You see their product in most stores you visit in the metro area. Lozier makes shelves and now they are making moves to recruit the best workers.
"For several of our manufacturing positions we have available, you do not have to have any prior manufacturing experience to do the job. Just come in willing to learn and willing to work," said Hannah Bolte, Communications Manager with Lozier.
They are looking to hire about 100 employees. Along with manufacturing jobs, they also have office jobs as well as skilled labor jobs available. They also offer on-the-job training.
"One thing that the manufacturing industry has experienced because of Covid is that the business came back a lot faster and as a surge," added Bolte.
To keep up with demand, new hires are crucial. Along with shelving they also make lockers that are being used for contactless pickup.
Lozier has been in Omaha for 65 years. Bolte said upgrading their business model has helped them last for so long. Their latest investment has been in smart shelves, they can tell you how many of a product is still left in stock.
She added that investing in employees has been their smartest move yet with some workers having been at the company for decades and some families for generations.
"If they ever want to try something different, the company is willing to invest in them and willing to move them to a different area so they can learn a new skill. It could be something different if that is what you want so, you do have the ability to move and promote from within," said Bolte.
They also have a free on-site medical clinic for employees and their family.
