Mor/Ryde International holds job fair at Elkhart plant

Posted:

A job fair on Tuesday is a sign the local economy is getting better.

Mor/Ryde International held a job fair at one of their Elkhart plants. They say the RV industry is rising so their company is expanding and looking to fill 30 new jobs.

Just two years ago, they only employed 300 people and now, with this expansion, they will employ over 500.

Another sign the economy is turning around? Their pool of candidates is smaller.

Tracie Archambault, employee services manager says, "It's definitely tightening up. We've seen a decrease in the number of applicants so we're doing everything we can with advertising, job fairs, things like that to get people in the door."

The job fair included on the site interview and welding tests.

Some job offers were made on Tuesday...the rest will be made on Wednesday
