Dayton firm handling P&G hiring blitz

Firm to hire 300 for P&G facility

A Dayton-area staffing firm is doing a mass hiring to immediately fill 300 positions at the Procter & Gamble multi-brand distribution center in Union, a company official said Thursday.

Express Employment Professionals of North Dayton is hiring for Quality Associates, a Cincinnati-based contract packaging company that will manage the P&G facility’s light manufacturing workforce.

The staffing firm has an immediate need for more than 300 workers, said Stacie M. O’Brien, an Express Employment account manager.

Most positions are for three-month periods, with the potential to be hired on full-time.

Currently, Express Employment is hiring workers for weekend and second shift positions. Eventually, there also will be openings for first-shift workers, O’Brien said.

Job openings include packers, clerical workers, RF scanners and forklift drivers.

Express Employment currently has placed about 50 workers at the P&G facility for Quality Associates.

In January, contract logistics provider Exel started operations at the P&G facility. The Westerville, Ohio-based firm planned to have 600 workers there by this month.

The P&G distribution center at Union’s Global Logistics Air Park is part of the company’s strategy of consolidating shipping and packaging operations into fewer distribution centers to cut costs and speed up delivery times.

The $90 million facility located near the Dayton International Airport is one of six P&G distribution centers being constructed in Ohio, Texas, California, Georgia, Illinois and Pennsylvania.
