Air Capital is located directly across Oliver Street from Spirit’s Wichita...

The company also has several open positions listed on its website. For more information, visit

    Amazon is hiring its own fleet of full-time drivers to deliver packages to Prime customers. Amazon will manage these drivers directly, meaning the company will set their wages, provide them delivery vehicles, and schedule their routes. Amazon has previously relied on delivery services provided by UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal Service, as well as contractors employed through its Flex delivery program and third-party courier companies it calls delivery service partners. At a recent Amazon training for the new program, drivers were told the company "didn't want people peeing in bottles," a source told Business Insider. Amazon is launching a...

    DTN The Progressive Farmer ^ | November 9, 2018 | Lori Culler
    The average American farmer is 58 years old, according to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Farmers over 55 control more than half of the country's farmland, and one in two is likely to retire in the next decade. Combined with a three-decade-long decline in the number of new farmers joining the ranks, it's becoming more difficult to find workers. When it comes to hiring, it's no surprise that a popular credential to look for is military experience. We had a client recently hire a senior-level military captain to fill an operations role on a farm focusing on developing structure, process...

    Xconomy ^ | October 24, 2018 | Jeff Buchanan
    Foxconn’s planned $10 billion electronic display factory in southeastern Wisconsin could be a boon for local workers vying for the potential 13,000 jobs. The facility could also be a headache for other area manufacturers, possibly sparking a heated competition for engineers, electricians, machinists, and other skilled laborers. The talent war could also spell opportunity for organizations that help employers find and hire such professionals. Patrick O’Rahilly, founder and CEO of FactoryFix, believes his company could be well positioned to capitalize on the Foxconn effect, if and when it materializes. FactoryFix is a Chicago-based startup that has developed software to connect...
