Newark Airport Firm Swissport USA Looking To Fill 1,000 Jobs

Company Says It Will Give Priority To Applicants Displaced By Sandy

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A ground services company at Newark Liberty International Airport is looking to hire 1,000 New Jersey residents for a new cargo and baggage handling operation.

Swissport USA is receiving assistance from the Christie Administration and the Department of Labor to help fill the jobs within the next 60 days.

The company has promised to give priority consideration to applicants displaced by Superstorm Sandy and the long-term unemployed, particularly those already involved in storm cleanup efforts.

Swissport USA is hosting several job fairs in the coming weeks, including one next week at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Newark.

Candidates for positions ranging from warehouse and cargo office agents to supervisors must have a valid driver’s license, a high school diploma, a clean record and a steady work history.
