Procter & Gamble looking to add 300 jobs in Berkeley County

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Procter & Gamble Co. is looking to hire 300 workers at its expanding Berkeley County facility.

The company is looking to hire engineers for its mechanical and electrical operations at its Tabler Station plant.

“You don’t need to have any previous manufacturing experience, but do you have the willingness to be a multi-skilled technician?” said Ryan Moore, the company’s human resources manager.

The facility produces Bounce and Gain dryer sheets, and soon multiple brands of shampoo, including Pantene and Head and Shoulders brands.

“In the near future by the end of this calendar year, we’re looking at Swiffer products and our Dawn, Ivory and Joy dishwashing detergents as well,” Moore added on MetroNews “Talkline” last week.

Moore said more than 940 people currently work at the site; the Procter & Gamble Co. hired 600 people over the past two years from local communities.

“We’ve already kind of expanded more than what initially thought it was going to be in our initial design,” he said.

According to Moore, the introductory wage is $17.50 an hour; the average employee receives at least $21 an hour. Benefits begin on the first day of employment, and workers will be eligible for the company’s profit-sharing plan after their first year.

“When you equate then our shift schedule — plus our shift premium pays an additional 72 cents — with the built-in overtime, it equates to about $40,000 a year annualized for an introductory P&G plant technician,” he said.
