HAGERSTOWN-The Staples Distribution Center on Hopewell Road in Hagerstown will hire at least 100 employees between late May and mid-July, said Walt Lachenmayr, the distribution center's human resources manager.
Lachenmayr said the jobs primarily will be for equipment operators and material handlers.
Although Lachenmayr did not give a salary range, he said some of the jobs will pay more than $12 per hour depending on experience.
All of the positions carry full benefits, including health and 401(k), he said.
"It's a lot of good jobs ... This is not a temporary hiring surge," Lachenmayr said.
Everyone would work three 12-hour shifts per week, he said. Most of the new hires would start on the night shift.
Lachenmayr said there is room for promotion.
Roughly two-thirds of the associates in leadership or management positions at the distribution center, for example, came from the ranks of hourly employees, he said.
