COLUMBIA, S.C. — A total of 1,500 new jobs will be coming to South Carolina over the next five years, and the hiring process for some of those positions has already begun.

According to reports, Electrolux in Anderson is adding a third shift, and will be hiring 800 new workers -- 350 in July and another 450 in October. Job positions include team leads, process workers and maintenance technicians as well as temporary and temporary-to-hire positions for machine operators, assemblers, braziers and materials handlers. Human Technologies Inc (HTI) is handling the hiring process and interested persons can apply online or sign up to attend a job fair at Electrolux on June 27.

York County will see the creation of 700 new jobs over the next five years as Ross Stores Inc implements a planned $68 million expansion at the company's warehouse and distribution center in Rock Hill.
