Coffeyville warehouse looking for 300 seasonal employees

Updated:

A lot of employees are suddenly needed in one Southeast Kansas community.  The demand is high for these jobs even though it's seasonal work.

For Heather McDonnell, at MDT Personnel, there is a need to fill 300 jobs at a Coffeyville, Kansas warehouse.

She says it is seasonal work, which is important to that company.

"It's very important because they have to meet their quota, so you've got to make sure that you have the people in there to fill the job and get everything pick and packed and out the door," says McDonnell.

The company has used  MDT since last year and is working again to fill warehouse jobs with immediate openings.

It is MDT's policy not to disclose the company where these jobs will be filled.

However, McDonnell says "whenever they do come apply, we will tell them where they will be working and exactly what they will be doing."

She says MDT sees hundreds of people come through it's Joplin doors every week looking for work.

McDonnell says not all of the jobs offered at MDT are temporary.

"It can be daily work.  It could be weekly work.  It could be temporary to permanent, just whatever the client needs.  We're there to help them out."

With this seasonal work being very important to the company, McDonnell has been working for weeks at job fairs and placing posters up hoping people will begin to fill those jobs.

MDT will host another job fair on Monday the 15th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Joplin Career Center.

You can also visit the MDT offices at 1318 East 7th Street.
