Where are Hyundai Glovis jobs?
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - It's been more than three months since Hyundai Glovis announced it will open a vehicle distribution center in the former General Motors plant in west Shreveport.
Dozens of cars are there.
But questions remain about the status of 150 direct jobs and 246 indirect jobs promised during a news conference in January.
Currently, there are only seven Shreveport jobs listed on Glovis' website:
- General manager
- Operations supervisor
- IT administrator
- Senior financial business analyst
- Customer service IT manager
- Yard manager
- Body shop manager
No specific job timetable was given by Glovis or city officials during the news conference Jan. 4.
However, North Louisiana Economic Partnership President Scott Martinez said then that the facility "will have a rapid ramp-up over the next few months."
A representative of North Louisiana Economic Partnership said that group now is trying to organize a job fair but no date has been set.
Representatives of Glovis America headquarters in California referred queries to Glovis representatives in Shreveport, who then referred KSLA News 12 back to the company's headquarters and said someone there would be calling back.
NLEP officials also said that Kelly Services, a temporary staffing third party, is overseeing Glovis employee recruitment and screening for the west Shreveport center.
Calls to Kelly Services' corporate headquarters in Michigan were not returned Monday.
And an on-site recruiter in Shreveport referred queries to their manager, who did not return requests for comment.
