BMW looking to hire 200 at SC manufacturing plant

GREER, SC - GREER, S.C. (AP) - Automaker BMW Manufacturing Co. plans to hire about 200 temporary production and logistics workers at its South Carolina plant.

The Greenville News reported last week that applicants need a stable work history, a high school diploma or GED and be capable of working 10-hour shifts.

BMW announced in October it was looking for 700 temporary workers as it added two new production shifts at the Greer plant.

BMW uses staffing firm MAU to hire workers for its Greer facility. MAU spokesman Brett Yardley said some of the current positions the company is looking to fill could be turnover in that original group hired and some are new positions.

The plant makes BMW's X5 and X6 models and will begin production of the X3 later this year.
