SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A local company is holding a job fair Monday, hoping to help some of the employees who just found out they’re losing their jobs at Monaco.
So Delicious Dairy Free in Springfield has up to 30 positions open, from hand packers to drivers.
The company makes dairy-free products, including coconut milk and almond milk products, coffee creamers and frozen desserts.
The company says after hearing about the job layoffs at Monaco Coach, it wanted to lend a hand.
“It was huge. I mean, that’s what I thought of immediately on Monday. For 130 people to go to work and get a pink slip that says go home and you don’t have a job anymore. Come here where we’re a growing company, a growing industry,” said Judy Moore, Director of Human Resources.
The job fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 17 at the company’s location at 1130 Shelly Street in Springfield.
