Ever since the announcement was made that Pittsburgh Glass Works plans to create 260 jobs by moving into a plant in Elkin, people have been calling the county to inquire about job openings. Job openings have not yet been posted by the company, but people can begin working on receiving a certificate that could improve employability, officials say.
Commissioner Paul Johnson told citizens gathered at a Surry County Board of Commissioners meeting last week that PGW will be hiring soon. He elaborated Monday that it will likely be 60 to 90 days. Job postings should be listed then on the company’s Web site, www.pgwglass.com, or through the N.C. Employment Security Commission.
