CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — It seems a lot of workers want to help Volvo build cars at its first auto manufacturing plant in North America.
The Post and Courier of Charleston (http://bit.ly/2c2eRVQ) reports that last week when the company announced a slate of job openings for its new $500 million plant northwest of Charleston, thousands of people went online crashing the Berkeley County jobs website.
The jobs were listed Aug. 23 on the BerkeleyMeansBusiness.com industrial recruiting website. In two days, the site was swamped with 24,000 hits. Usually the site gets between 300 and 500 visits a day.
The plant is under construction and is expected to open in 2018. It's expected to employ about 2,000 workers in the next decade.
