An Upstate hiring firm is hosting a job fair Monday to help fill open positions with BMW Manufacturing.

The job fair is with MAU at BMW Manufacturing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Spartanburg Community College's Tyger River Campus, which is located at 1875 East Main St. in Duncan.

MAU is encouraging interested applicants to apply online prior to arriving at the job fair for the forklift operator and production associate positions, though walk-ins are welcome.

Candidates must provide proof of a high school diploma or GED diploma, must be able to work 10-hour shifts and weekends, and have one year of stable work history to apply. Applicants will also have to submit to a background check and drug screen.

For the forklift operator positions, candidates must have at least six months of forklift experience in a manufacturing environment

The hiring event comes less than two weeks after BMW made the major announcement that the German automaker will expand its Greer facility to include production of a new X-Series SUV, the X7, investing $1 billion in the Upstate.

There is no word how many open positions Monday's hiring event is hoping to fill.
