Sierra Army Depot looking to fill 250 potential positions over time
SIAD, which currently employs more than 650 people, is looking to fill up to 250 new positions.
Public Affairs Officer Lori McDonald said SIAD has been working closely with the Lassen Career Network located on Susanville’s Main Street to help get people ready to apply for work at SIAD.
“We’ve been working with (the Lassen Career Network) to help individuals in Lassen County put their resumes together and put them into our specific system,” said Kay Schneider, who works with the human resource office at SIAD. “We have coaches at the career network helping these individuals. Once they setup appointments, they will
Schneider went on to say that the coaches would be going down to the career network from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday during February and March, in order to train everyone applying for the jobs.
McDonald also pointed out SIAD was also getting the word out through advertisements in Reno Gazette. Basically, according to McDonald, they are spreading the message to everyone within reasonable commuting distance.
McDonald also said everyone would have to apply for the job in the same fashion, so no one will be favored over another. There are some jobs that Schneider said will require more specific skills, such as a license to operate a forklift, or an engineering degree for the two engineering internships they plan to offer, electrical and civil.
“One of the things we are advertising for is security guard,” Schneider said. “For the security guard position, it’s required by law that you have to consider people with veterans preference before you can consider others. That would be the only position that has something unique about it.”
Along with the security guard position, the Depot will also be hiring for positions like material handlers, budget analysts, telecommunications specialist maintenance mechanical leader and administrative support assistants, to name a few.
SIAD is an equal opportunity organization and a drug free environment. McDonald said that people who are interested in applying for work at the Depot should contact the Lassen Career Network or SIAD directly.
